Allow users to sort the contacts in chat, the same way you can in Skype for Business - by Groups/Teams, Status, Relationships, New - and perhaps add the Recent and Suggested as tabs there as well.
Please give us the ability to sort contacts by status like Skype.

Please make an update so that Contacts can be sorted by Status like Skype!
Please fix this and have ability to sort contacts like Skype
Come on Man! Fix this ****! If you can't get someone in there to do it!
Why has this not been fixed with the upcoming retirement of Skype for Business? There is no way functionality should be less in Teams. PLEASE FIX THIS
Microsoft please fix this. The recent Teams update really messed this up for us.
Ed Weber commented
How is it that this very common feature has been asked for by customers for *more than four years now* and nobody from Microsoft is even responding? So much for customer service and 'listening to the customer'...
Please implement this feature, it's essential for companies too, if you need to see who of your colleagues just came online. The differention between contacts and chats is strange as well. why in the same tab?
Please fix, we should not be going back in functionality compared to Skype
Jakob Neua commented
Its insane the chat is so not prioritized in teams...
Since ICQ there had been a working fine way of handling chats...
Why can I only pin 15 chats
Why cant i sort the list as i want to
Look at skype
Add contact and groupchats to a group
List groups in the order you want
List contacts in the order you want..
Right now you have to search or sit and try to fin the people you wanna chat with...
This sucks so much, and could so easily be changed
Expand a group
Add it please, we keep moving backward
Fix this please.

Sort by status please. We can do it in Skype. Not having this in Teams is a big backward step
This seems like it would be included right from the start - I'm a little shocked that it's a missing feature. Add basic sorting, please.
I was searching on how not IF I could sort contacts in Teams ... I am quite frankley flabberghasted that this is not possible on such a high profile application in 2021... !!!
Sorting by status was very helpful in SfB, and is missed by a lot of our users.

FFS! Don't tell me I have to get my organization to move to a product that can't even do what the one we have (and chose) can do! Chat/Voice/Video Conferencing should be able to be used without all of the other bloat.
MSgt Daniel Pendergast commented
Second the sorting options available in SfB, most importantly the sort by activity feature. Also allow people to drag a contact from one contact group to another- removing and readding is needlessly cumbersome. And please remember which groups I've minimized. I mean, you have all these functions previously, and you don't think people would want to keep them??
Filter contacts by status please.
