Customize default sort order of folders in Teams
Folders in Teams are sorted by default on last modified date. There is no option to set a different default sort order like an alphabetic sort order.
Please add options that allows the user to set his/her own default sort order in order to sort folder names in Teams.
You can drag and drop the Teams folders to the position you want them to display, whether alphabetical or numeric or any other way you want them organised.

It is so annoying that Teams does not default to sort by newest to oldest let alone let me set what sort I want for any folder.

Guessing this isn't being looked at, but I'll add my 2 cents' worth... it'd be good if there was an option to stick a file to the top. That way you can separate important files from files that have been attached for a one off query.

i cannot believe that this still hasn't been sorted yet. No wonder all our team wants to move back away from Teams to something more user-friendly.
Frustrating! Standard functionality in every other application, why not in Teams?
I mainly refer back to the most recent documents I added to the files, so being able to keep that sorting once and for all would be great.

Teams is not very user friendly. The simple task of organizing folders in alphabetical order should be an obvious option and I don't understand why this cannot be done.
This seems like a really easy feature to implement that every other application has.
My users want it in alphabetical order, not last modified date. It takes forever to sort every time they access the document library links in the channel.
Not sure why this isn't an option from the get go tbh.
How many frustrated users are needed to get attention?
Hey, Microsoft Team, your Teams is annoying thousands of people!
Customize default sort order of folders in Teams!

If you add a librarytab this tab should show defaultview from SharePoint as default. Not sort on latest. Then there should be options to make a new view or change view

How is the alphabetic sorting not standard in teams, like in any other program. Everyone would just use that if it was possible, I don't get why they don't listen and fix that simple problem. Maybe we have to threat them with some words so that a filter detects it and they see it or something like that.
its just sad
It is really annoying to have to resort the folder view when you just want to have a look at the latest changed files.
Fix this please.
Kim Phillips commented
I cannot understand why this would be a feature request. It should be a fundamental feature on any app on any platform. Please fix...

Please make it possible to sort by number and alphabetical this is very much needed to make it user-friendly.

Use of Teams from a mobile device is extremely difficult without this function.
This cannot be that hard and is SUPER frustrating. How many FTEs would this really take? Or how many scrum points would this be? Maybe 5 at most guys? Come on listen to your customers!
Team files and folders require alpha sort option

That this has been an open issue for years is ridiculous. Also the current sort model puts 11 after 2 which is just dumb.
