Allow users to change order of Groups
It would be extremely helpful if we can arrange the order of the group. Individuals should be able to customize that on their own. For example for Marketing team members, they would want all the marketing groups to be at the top etc.
Some groups are more important than others!
Yes, would love to be able to sort alphabetically.
Copy over slack functionality. Thats everything that Yammer & Teams is missing.

The ability to 'favourite' a community so it appears at the top of your list of Yammer communities in the left hand navigation has been developed and should be rolling out to organisations in the first quarter of 2020. You can find out about the other features coming your way in the post here:
I want to define and sort on my own which groups are most relevant for me and visible on the left side bar on the top (... groups I click often into are not necessarily the most relevant for me).

A default alphabetical sort with an optional manual sort would make sense from a user experience perspective. The current "user activity" algorithm is definitely not favored by the 185 prior comments.

I would like to be able to sort manually.
We should be able to sort this list manually

Looking forward to this being implemented. Previous advice has been 'they sort by user activity' , but I can find no rhyme or reason to that. Groups with little activity that I barely look at stay stubbornly above Groups I post to and have a lot of activity.
This makes Yammer hugely unreliable as a feed where I will actually be able to see the messages I want.
Some of the busiest groups I need to be subscribed to so I can post, but have dozens of messages a day I have no interest in, I need to be able to move these down...
ich bin sehr irritiert, dass Basisfunktionen wie sortieren und gruppieren nicht vorhanden sind.
Microsoft Teams allows this, yammer should too!
Re-order will be nice >>> but grouping and renaming to something user-friendly (that doesn't look like a hashtagged-emoticon-ridden Twitter feed) would be nice too.

Nearly 3 years old - and still an important demand with no solution - that should be pushed once again - thank you
by the way: the roadmap link https://myignite.microsoft.com/sessions/53799?source=sessions is no longer working :(

A basic static Alpha sort should be the default. Everyone understands and is familiar with this paradigm. Any other sorting schemes are/may be improvements and can be chosen as required.

I don't understand why you wouldn't be able to sort groups A-Z.. or in other ways for that matter. Is there a sensible logic behind this lack of functionality? I can't think of one.
Irmgard Byrd commented
It would be helpful to be able to determine the order in which groups show in the list, and to be able to select if a group with a new comment should show automatically or not. At the moment I have to expand the listing to All Groups to see if there is a new comment in one of the groups that don't show in the shorter list.
Michelle Mayes commented
We just migrated to Yammer and although there might be more activity in another group, I would like particular groups loaded at the top of groups. Either by manual sort or maybe by Admin so the groups that I am the Admin for are at the top and easily recognizable.

I'll add my voice to this. I work in a large organization and we have a LOT of yammer groups. as it is i have to hit view all your groups to see some of the ones i'm currently subscribed to, but i can't reorder them by the ones i use the most. I'm also not subscribing to any further groups since i'm afraid of losing sight of the ones i'm currently in already. A way to organize the groups would be absolutely ideal.
