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.

So counter intuitive to have the newest post at the bottom. I can configure my mail box in outlook to give me latest at the top why can't I do that in Teams.
The compSci community calls this a 'push down list'.
MS Files Manager allows one to select one of several columns, and new to old is a choice.
They claim is this natural for Chats.
An better Chat style could easily put the chat input box at the top if one wants new-to-oldest...
The original request for this had 1095 votes, yet was declined. Will this every go through?
Well that is not a good answer. Even any mediocre programmer can implement this. And there are MANY MANY people who are not happy with this issue and they did not vote, maybe they don't know about voting or don't have the time.
This does not change the fact that it is hard to use.
Giving examples from any other brand's products is a no-no in sales 101. Yes, some may not support this feature. That means they are not very useful too.
This does not change the fact that it is still hard to use.
Please implement this.
We are using Teams for more than just chatting within our departments but also as a way of housing details.
When will there be an option to sort conversations or posts in alphabetical order?
maybe do a search for all the threads with the same reuqest and work how many votes there are.
i have the ability to set outlook to show most recent on top and reply to that. i can do the same almost everywhere else (including this forum, facebook, twitter, phone SMS, ie the most used communication tools in the world).
To have the most recent on top means its the first thing you see. To be able to enter the next reply at the top of the screen is also important. this is a conversation tool, as with any verbal conversation, the most recent statement is the highest in the memory, the statement being replied to.
To have the choice is important.
How funny that THIS very chat window places the NEWEST comments on top.
And it's also really hard your neck!
I vote yes, give me the option! I'm also confused on the discussion as the iOS version already does this..... very odd indead!!!

I would like to see the most recent conversations at the top of the screen. Makes it easier for me to see the latest conversations. Thanks!
would like to have option to go either way and also I would love to be able to sort chats alphabetically - that would be awesome!
This is also my number one complaint so far as a new user.
Please list the most recent information on top. Scrolling to the bottom to view the latest information is very inconvient.
I would also prefer to see latest information on top, which seems to be pretty much standard in other applications.
I personally don't have any other tool where the new information is on the bottom hence I am really struggling with the user experience in teams and was really surprised to see that there is no setting to changes this. Please include this for an efficient use and a high acceptance when people are moving towards Teams. Thanks
Please implement settings to allow the users to determine themselves how their teams chat is displayed (oldest vs newest thread on top; order or responses within one chat)

In addition to having an option to not have posts jump out of order when new replies are added.
