Alphabetical sort option for Teams
Please consider including an option for viewing the teams in alphabetical order. Ideally, there should be a "Default" view which sorts all the teams in ascending order (A-Z) and an option to sort the teams based on most recent activity. Of course, this feature should also be pushed to the mobile app as well.

I have been using teams only for a year and I am already wasting time trying to find the one I need in the list.

This is a critical time saving feature that needs to be implemented ASAP.

Please, please, please !! Can we have this option added as we are now using MS Teams as more and more organisations are using this as their main portal. We need to give the end users what they want to ease the O365 adoption process.
Currently contacts ordered as per creation time. We need the ability to sort alphabetically and / or choose the order like Skype for Business. Also, we should be able to sort the contact groups as well.
Anyone have an update on this?
Yes, we are also acknowledging the need for an alphabetic sorting function in the teams list. The current one is almost as hard as finding the needle in the hay stack. A chronological order of when each team has been created / or added to that team.

Users and admins should have a lot more control of the organization and display of items within teams.
Crazy stuff, driving our users nuts. Have to do an extra click every single folder to sort by name. What is wrong with you Microsoft?
This is much needed - I have 20 teams at the moment and it is really difficult to find the team I want to work in, especially with all the channels expanded out.
Sorting by other filters would be ideal, but teams may need tags for the type of team they are. For example, we have seperate teams for:
- staff PD - one team per staff member
- team per individual project and we have lots of projects on at any one time
- a team per functional area of the company
- teams for interest groups
- a team for group news
- a team for office
Just gets out of hand.
Another idea teams is the ability to group teams and collapse the group to simplify. Notification icons could appear at the group level to indicate items within teams in that group.
another nice way to view the teams would be a tiled view - full pane, without converstaion window - where I can select or sort my teams. This would increase my productivity greatly.
As I see it, we will be creating more teams and it is going to get too clumsy to use Teams and the individuals in our business will end up with our users rejecting Teams.

can you add an alphabetical sort for favourites too please?

I didn't realize that the mobile app allows this. So much faster to find a team than the seemingly random list in the desktop app.
I have 25+ teams. PLEASE add a feature to sort them alphabetically.
This drives me crazy. Surely this should be a standard feature. Please enhance and release.
Despite your best intentions it does not look like Post topics here are de-duplicated (merged). There are several Posts on sorting Teams and perhaps Channels here.
An expand-all collapse-all would be a big help too. Some of my Teams have over a dozen Channels and need a lot of viewing and scrolling that a collapse button could prevent.

Yes, please add a sort feature and include this asap. It's ridiculous to have to scroll through a list of Teams or (Groups) to find what your looking for. The search (Teams) makes it almost bearable.

A must! My end users are screaming at me!

That would be an awesome feature. Very frustrating for staff having to sort all the Teams manually.
