Custom Group Categories for Teams
As I create more and more teams, I need to be able to group or categorize them. It seems like the only native groupings are "favorites" or "more". I would like to be able to create other categories. Once I get over 30 teams, grouping them into detailed categories is going to be imperative to stay organized.
Still under review by the feature team. Nothing new to report at this time.
As I join more teams, Teams is becoming unworkable without this feature.
@Warren any updates since 2018?

This is essential and having used Teams for over a year it is becoming unworkable without it
This would help a lot with Teams sprawl. It would be great to incorporate this into Teams Templates as well.

I would also flag for this. In Teaching/research, the number of teams bloom exponentially this year,

As more and more work shifts to collaboration in Teams this is becoming a real user PAIN point. Please have another look at this MS. We (users) would really appreciate it for organizing how we view groupings of work groups.

This is long overdue...

Would make Teams expirience better

This would be helpful to combat Teams sprawl. When we are working with different vendors, on similar initiatives different teams will be created to keep discussions/projects confidential. Being able to group these would help me find the Team I am looking for.

Seems like this is a popular request, pending for 4 years! I have so many Teams, some are project oriented, some are more for work groups or social. It would be great to be able to add a category, like we can do in Outlook for emails.

Any updates ? This item has been open for almost four years now and the latest MS response is from 2018....
This would be extremely useful, as we use a large number of teams in our organization. For me this would be a huge improvement!

Hey @Warren...it's been 2+ years...how about an update?
Jim Bob Howard commented
This is desperately needed!
1. Create multiple groups per user (e.g. Favorites, Projects, Corporate, etc.)
2. Ability to sort groups (Alpha by name, for example)
3. Ability to sort within groups (Alpha by name, Chrono by added, et. al.)
Please... add a grouping capability!
How can it take more than 2 years to review such a fundamental feature.
We have one team for each employee, teams teams for leadergroups, Teams for internal business development projects, and we would like to create a team for each of our customers, but with the lack of capability to organize the 200+ teams I fear this will be a nightmare and cause a lot of badwill . And that's a shame, because Teams is a nice tool...when you finally find the team you need to work with:-)
Please add -- For the most part, I love Teams but staying organized is becoming harder and harder!

Hello Warren. Can we get an update on this?
-last update was over 2 years ago for under review. Looks like it's a top feature request from many users.
As Team roll out and usage increase users need to be able to meta/classify the teams/groups/collaboration beside a simple sticky and custom order of list.
Leverage Browser Bookmarks idea for this simple functionality.
Think of it as a simple bookmark function that is present in all web browsers but do it in the teams interface.

Can you please provide an update? This issue is not getting better with more time to pass and more teams being created. Thank you.
