Most recent conversations/replies on top.
I'd like most recent conversations/replies on top. Scrolling to the bottom to see the newest replies is a terrible experience.
Lack of at least the option makes for inefficient Teams and I thought it was supposed to be about efficiency.
Many in our office team complain of the frustration of using Teams for this single reason

I run a Team, and was just asked if I could change the order of posts. I said I'd investigate.
Very disheartened to read the feedback on here, and that this request has been declined up to now. You must realise this is a reasonable request (this very page has most recent posts at the top) so why decline it?
I have DOZENS of "individual" chats happening amongst my colleagues - but the 'Recent' list on the left only places the chats in the order of when "I" initiated them or when my colleague initiated it with me.
What sucks is when I'm having a convo with 2 people, but they are separated in the 'Recent' list by 20 people and I have to scroll ... back and forth... back and forth... back and forth.... when I'm talking with both of them.
Can't MS just make it so chats with the most recent activity are brought to the top? This is 2019, right?

Notice that THIS VERY FORUM shows LAST IN FIRST!!! FFS, Microsoft, implement this one simple actually relevant feature. It is a huge gating factor for our team of 320 potential users.

agree, users should have the choice on how they want to view their conversations
This is a business app. In most of my other productivity apps conversations are newest to oldest e.g. email & yammer...it's annoying if i don't have the option to sort it the way I want - its unproductive.

As described by everyone else already, this should have been included in the first release. Although the simplest and most basic things are the easiest to overlook during development. As a plus point, I would like to see the option as the team owner/admin to pin important posts at the top regardless of sorting order, such as team guidelines, links to useful/already existing files etc.This would be very useful for my new team members who are completely new to using Teams.

Totally agree. Must be simple to fix/amend/do....
I am perplexed as to why the sort order is this way. Newest goes at the top! I have this same issue with One Note. At the very least, this should be configurable by the user!

I support this request strongly!
Scrolling to the end of a conversation is more than tedious.
Thanks for getting this done, Mr. Gates!

I just got Teams last week and googled how to change the sort today. Looks like it's not available. I would vote in favor of this enhancement. Thank you.

This is important - it's not at all intuitive to look for the most recent events at the bottom of the page.

Basic functionality. silly that this doesnt exist already.
Please save me the time of that scroll to the bottom. Make it like Outlook where you can have your most current message first if that is your preference.
Time waster and people miss impt information when at the bottom. Make it sortable.
We need to be able to toggle the sort order of the feed so the newest items display first, instead of oldest to newest!
Feature absolutely needed for productivity and more widespread adoption of Teams
Frustrating having the latest at the bottom. Most people would have their emails newest at the top and oldest at the bottom. Why not the same in teams???
