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.

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.

@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

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.

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.
