Ability to make multiple watchlists (or playlists)

Right now, uni students from all the world are using Microsoft Teams to follow online classes with the ability to follow a recorded lesson later; right now all of the relevant content a student needs can be added in just ONE large unsorted playlist (called "Watchlist" in Streams) and it is just a mess to go in and gather one specific stream recording (lesson) from one specific user (professor), so it would be nice to have some way to make several different ordered watchlists/playlists (like YouTube does for instance) so that you could sort content from different lessons and different classes in different ordered playlists.
Ideally, those watchlists could be named, could be made private or public, could be shared with a link, and the videos in them could be ordered by hand with a drag and drop move.

I upvoted hear as well, but this is a duplicate of https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/microsoft-stream-ideas/arrange-videos-in-a-playlist/idc-p/128....


Please upvote there as well. This is a much needed feature.

A sort feature for the Stream Tab in Teams is essential for it to be useful to support teachers using this in the classroom during the lockdown.

Whilst this issue can be overcome by going online to Stream to see the Channel in situ, it loses the convenience of having Teams as a one-stop-shop.

Please add file sorting!!!

Hi blvck_mvgic. We hear your feedback on Playlists. Playlists are in the stream roadmap here https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/stream/streamnew/new-stream#roadmap.
