Choose "Sort By" default in OneDrive
Being able to change the default option for sorting folders by name, date, etc. yourself. Currently I have to go to each folder and choose how I want to sort the contents but would like to set a default (for example name ascending) and it will always show files within each folder in the same way
Thanks for the suggestion.
You guys still thinking about it???? Unbelievable. I have to change the sort order every time I go into a folder, which I am doing often. I just signed up for Office 365 for its storage and I'm beginning to regret it already. My camera (and most cameras that I know of) names my pics/videos in a sequential order. If I alter a video (for example, shorten it to eliminate the crud at the beginning and end that I almost always have) the date taken changes with the modification. But I can keep the name so that it stays in sequence. But wait, then I have to change the sort function everytime I go into that folder. Are you trying to drive us mad?!
Having to go through each folder to change the sort option is a real show stopper for anyone having hundreds or thousands of folders... I have my pictures organised with hierarchical folder structure and proper names that always give the chronological order. When viewed in OneDrive the order is just as good as random.

This "feature" had the following consequences on one of my jobs:
I uploaded images to be selected by my customer to a onedrive folder. They were named in a specific manner and were to be displayed in that order. The customer came back with an unexpected selection and I went to check why. I did not notice the problem at first because the images were displayed without their filenames. It turned out the images were displayed in the "capture date" order and not the one I named them in. This forced me to rename them again and upload them and let my customer know about the issue. Now my customer has to do the same work again and select the images just because onedrive decided to do its own thing. Please let me select the way the files in a folder should be displayed to the viewer to avoid this sort of time waste.
for serious?! random sorting is getting tired... I need to be productive. How does it take a year to add two columns to a database and render default view and sort order?!
Add to that the default view: thumbnail or list
