I understand from previous post that there may be a change coming to allow users to change the default sort for items in the Files tab.  Is this still in consideration?

35 Replies
It's coming, just a matter of when. Once the SharePoint UI replaces the Files tab, you'll be able to set the default view which will include sort order.

What does that mean? The SharePoint UI is replacing the Files Tab?

Thanks Chris - So, I should now be able to set the Files tab to default sort on Name. Is that correct? I'm having some trouble doing that. 

No, they have not released this still. No updates from Microsoft on the matter either. Could be this week could be months from now......But when this releases, we should be able to modify the default view on the libraries and it come over into Teams to my knowledge.

Just checked and at this time still an issue: sort order in Teams files for files is last modified, while in the underlying sharepoint document library it sorts default by filename.

Sorting by name by default is the sane default, hope Microsoft picks this up soon.

.@Homer Franklin 

Agreed!

@quinnmdq Still not updated in May 2019. This sort of behaviour immediately deters users who are using teams for the first time in our org. Sort should be by name as default, and defaults should be able to be set according to user preference.

Anyone know if that functionality has been implemented yet? It can't be that hard, it's one of the most basic functions of any file browsing system

@D-Fine  no, no news here! the  conversation and files tab is not movable

Any news on this? I'm another one who is waiting for this feature. Rgds,
Last I heard a few weeks ago. It was supposed to been out already so who knows at this point. Hopefully really soon.

In the second half of last week my organization began migrating to Teams. I had been excited about the change, but did not realize I couldn't organize the filing system alpha-numerically by default. A two step process every time I navigate to a new folder (sort folder, find file) is double the steps used in file explorer. I didn't realize Teams, which supposedly organizes files, only has beta functionality.

You don’t have to wait much longer the new file experience should be dropping any time now.

We need this as well!  Please let us all know if you hear anything!  @Chris Webb 

@Chris Webb

Sounds like this has been "in the near future" for over a year now. 

clipboard_image_0.png

Sorry buddy, but I'm skeptic.

Preaching to the choir. It's coming, but who knows when.... last update was a week or two ago "Real Soon", but Been hearing Soon for awhile now. They said it was coming at the end of last year at Ignite and still not here so take it for what it's worth.

Annnnnnd...

 

Still not available, in August

 

A year now I've been using Teams and this basic UI fail has not been fixed

My organization has been an early adopter of Teams and the lack of this functionality is consistently called out by our end users.  If you are unable to allow users to set the default sort order themselves my opinion is that you should reset the global behavior to sort on name until the functionality can be added.  

@mc_cockrell Agreed! I regularly have staff ask me how to default to alpha sort and I have to throw up my hands. 

This is the only thing holding back the majority of our organization from migrating to Teams and Sharepoint as a shared storage platform.

@Homer Franklin I agree that the default sort order must be changed. This is really holding is back in the adoption of Teams. 

Almost a year now, do you have an idea if there exists a timeline on getting this fixed?

It is the Teams issue we get most complaints about in my organisation (rightfully so) .

@Chris Webb 

 

Well they just released an official video on a blog a few days ago going over the new files tab so it’s got to hopefully finally be out soon.

Link, please?@Chris Webb 

Still doesn't give anything like a release date, and I can't see anything in the video that shows where you'll be able to set the default sort order... (unless I'm missing it somewhere, I'm watching the video on my phone so it's small). In fact, the explanation to the video appears to just tell me what I already see in the Files section of Teams
It’s SharePoint. You have views. And a default view. You save the sort order via the default view and it uses it.

@Chris Webb I've changed the default sort order in the sharepoint view. This directly changes the sort order in sharepoint but the sorting in teams is NOT changed.

....because the files tab hasn’t been updated to use SharePoint yet it’s not going to work until then.

@Homer Franklin Very disappointing to see it takes this long to fix something that simple.
Atleast set it to sort A-Z by default MS... come on

@Chris Webbalmost a year later and still nothing #MicrosoftTime :(

Yeah it’s a head scratcher.

@dpassey Oh, it's been well over a year already. There is another thread where @Chris Webb said Share Point integration was in the "near future". That was July 2018. Lies or bull honkey, it's the same to me. I have 85 dissatisfied people that walk up to my desk and ask why Teams navigation is garbage.

 

$4,800,000,000 in profit in Q2 2019, but they don't have the resources to get this product beyond beta functionality. Way to go MS.

Hey, I'm just regurgitating what I've read or heard from MS. I'm just as frustrated about this as you. They really need to work on their release date expectations. I mean I like the fact that we get to see what's coming, but at least keep us in the loop as to why you didn't meet the mark.
