I'm uploading a set of training videos and I'd like them to be presented in order. I'm putting them in a specific channel but the sort options on the channel don't seem to have a way to do that.

 

Either a Playlist or the ability to sort by name in a channel would be helpful

This should have been part of the beta test.  It is a major time waster for teams to have to search for videos that are not in any normal sort order.

We have multiple customers, education, waiting for this feature to become reality. It would boost cloud usage and get rid of local streaming servers.

 Being able to order videos in a channel is a must have for trainings

Same here.  Really need to be able to control the order of the videos before this will be a worthwhile solution for us.

Really need to have a playlist feature added to Video > Stream.

This is a really glaring omission with these products.

Has anyone ever heard of YouTube? If not, you should REALLY check that site out for feature ideas.

Thanks!

I had good hopes for Stream, but a playlist is a must for our company as well. Will wait a little and see if something changes. Otherwice im using folders in our local server or youtube and scrap Stream.

This is the same reason I (who work in the marketing department and need to send people raw interview footage in order) and my colleague (who works in training and needs to send people video lists in order) rejected Office 365 Video. I would appreciate some statement from Microsoft on an estimated ETA for this.

Just started posting more video on stream and have run into the same situation. We're also trying to embed a channel in SharePoint and the videos appear to be showing in the order of most watched at the top. It would really be great to be able to manually set this, otherwise, you have to embed individual videos in a page--not ideal.

The lack of this feature, or even sort alphanumerically, is the main reason why we are likely to go with another solution.

 

The alphanumeric sorting is a no brainer. I am dumbfounded how this feature was skipped. Web 101.

Still nothing and what is really troublesome there is no acknowledgment of this and nothing on the O365 roadmap, why?

We definitely needs this feature.  Please add soon!

Occasional Contributor

Yes please, if there is a series of short videos it's really embarrassing to have to tell the audience they need to look for the sequence number in the title and view them in ascending order...

Microsoft - if anyone is reading, it is apparent that we need to be able to sort our videos!  We are going to have to look at other options if we can't get this.  We store our monthly newsletters in a channel, and it's embarrassing when the one at the top of the list is 9 months old and you can't find the latest one!  Please and thank you!

Absolutely, this is a must have!

This is really an essential feature! When it will be added to Stream?
Contributor

Any update from anyone at Microsoft? Is it even on the horizon?

Do you really expect Microsoft to respond?

 

If you do, you haven't been working with Microsoft very long...

Contributor

Yes we should be able to at least sort in alphabetical order.

Need this!!! Please give sort option in Stream and in Stream webpart for Modern Sites.

Occasional Visitor

Agree with Raymond Boone. Please, just do it! We at least need the ability to manually sort these videos.

Occasional Visitor

Just came across this seemingly obvious omission from functionality as well. Speechless. No ability to either sort based on the Video title or manually reorder the content in a stream is crazy. Please implement this basic functionality as soon as possible!

We have a few clients now whom we suggested to use Stream instead of You Tube since it's suppose to be safer with respect to how data is stored within the tenant's domain. However, the lack of this particular feature is a big setback when comparing the two considering it's a standard feature one would expect. 

 

We need to have the ability to create a playlist, pick and order videos from a particular channel. Then would like to be able to get the playlist ID and use in a standard video embed (same as YouTube effectively) to run as a playlist and with options like repeat, auto play etc..

Any chance of an update? Is it really under review or is it just that you posted that after I pointed out on the AMA that no one from your team seemed to know about this request and had never posted a response to this extremely popular idea? (Check out the date time of the "under review" post with the AMA event .... coincidence, me thinks not) Stream is starting to fail big time for my company because without any sort of publishable play list, content is simply to hard to find, or sequence in any meaningful manner, You are losing ground now in my company to "Facebook at Work", whihc is a tragedy! Please give us some light at the end of the tunnel!

@ASCould you let us know what the sequence of Statuses for ideas is, as changing the status of an idea that is over 14 months old from "under review" to "new idea" seems counter intuitive?

Hi,

 

Sorry I was fixing a problem with ideas boards yesterday and it seems to have changed some of the idea's statuses. I have returned this idea back to its previous state.

 

Apologies

Thank you :)
