Dont sort conversations based on last response
Do not sort conversations based on the most recent response. Keep conversations sorted based on Date and Timestamp of the initial post. When you sort by last response, conversations started earlier get lost. An accurate chronological sort is more useful here.
Request from one of my colleagues for this. Ideally it would be an option so some people could sort by latest reply and others could sort by latest start of conversation (and maybe some other options).
There are several variations of this request. It would be good if they were all merged together, as we would have a couple hundred votes instead of 57.
I'd love to be able to switch my view to not be sorted by last response, chronological would be extremely useful for me. Extremely useful.

I have several clients that would like to change the conversation sort order on a per-channel or per-team basis. Some things need to be chronological; some can be the default "active conversation at the bottom" sort.

There should be an option for sorting. I have a few channels that are helpful with the latest update being at the bottom of the channel, however, another channel needs to be by when they were submitted, not the reply.
All it needs is individual options in each "Manage Channel Section"

See also the much-more-commented item titled "Keep the messages in channels in chronological order," where I just posted (as a comment) a detailed design suggestion. I believe implementation of that design as a user-choosable option would fulfill the interests posted here as well.
I'd prefer to be able to configure the preferred sort order in Chat or Teams myself. Sometimes I want to sort by oldest to newest (like Slack, Hipchat, etc) or from newest to oldest (Yammer, Facebook, etc). But sometimes I want to sort based on the First Name of the person I was talking with. It's frustrating to find previous conversations with someone when I don't remember the last time I chatted with them.

Would be great if each channel could have a default sort order too. One of our channels is just for conversations about specific dates and it would be great if we could order those by the title/text of first post.

even better: give us options to configure the preferred sort option ourselves:
initial post asc/desc
in s4b, I had my contacts arranged alphabetically, but grouped by department -> why is this not possible in teams?
Roger Krona commented
Totally agree on this.
The idea of the latest activity last is Good. But don't work i real life.
Real Cronological order now, please.
100% agree on this.
I agree - users should be able to configure (mobile and desktop app) to allow conversations to be ordered from oldest to newest (like Slack, Hipchat, etc) or from newest to oldest (Yammer, Facebook, etc).
