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?

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. 

Highlighted
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.
Highlighted

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.

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

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.

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.
