Allow sorting of onedrive photo albums
Allow the new OneDrive photo albums to sorted alphabetically and the sort order fixed
Wanted to provide an update here: we are planning improvements for our photos experience; but don’t have a timetable to share just yet about this particular ask.

Any update on this? Considering the main competition (Google Photos) is lightyears ahead i'd have thought this would be quite important to get right. The weakest part of OneDrive is the handling of photos and albums - please please please improve it. I don't really want to switch to Google...
If photo/video was upload to OneDrive, no possibility to somehow affect the sorting in the albums, because OneDrive recognize or no recognize creation date randomly for each file.
Any sorting can be broken just after moving photo from one folder to another.
Please, fix it, this feature looks good in Google Photo, for example.
considering to move from google photos to onedrive. but it is a mess onedrive. I did a small test and learned that pictures are randomly organized, dates wrong, pictures searchable from folders instead of a single one. So if i would to share pictures of my dog with someone, nude pictures can pop-op. also irrelevant photos and screenshots from document working folders occur in photo's (total mess). pictures in general work loaded slowle and browsing experience is not improved. I will stay with google photos until these are fixed.

This is really a simple thing. Please fix it!
Is there an update on this? I asked customer service and they said they were working on an update. Is this true and is it due soon?
6 years and no solution yet. What a disappointment.
Bilder in Alben sortieren commented
Mir würde es helfen, wenn in der Gesamtübersicht der Fotos in jedes Foto ein kleiner Hinweis eingeblendet werden würde. In dem Hinweis steht dann das Album, ist dem dieses Foto bereits aufgenommen wurde.
Noch besser wäre es, wenn es einen Schalter gäbe, mit dem ich alle Fotos, die bereits in einem oder mehreren Alben einsortiert sind, in der ersten Gesamtansicht ausblenden könnte.
Moved from other service and I'm very surprised that this feature is not available (sort by taken date) on android. Please kindly add it as it will improve albums management a lot.
essential feature - sort photos by Capture Date
This should be basic functionality of a photo management and sharing site. The fact that you ONLY use the date modified to sort photos, especially in the All Photos feed is crazy. I have meticulously ensured that the Date Taken field is as accurate as can be, yet all of my photos on OneDrive are jumbled.
I chose OneDrive years ago because I loved the functionality. Unfortunately, this feature is a deal breaker. Please fix Microsoft.
I agree with everybody here! Who would think that OneDrive would have a photo album app that was so devoid of basic features, such as changing the order of the pictures?
Wow! This request is nearly 6 years old now!
BTW: I'm supporting it completely. It's such a basic feature...

It's extraordinary that Microsoft "haven't got time for this". Arranging my photos in the order I choose is fundamental to creating an album. It has been since I used to send my film off to be developed and pasted the resulting photos in the way I wanted to tell my story. Microsoft, you are so last millennium.
Please get this done.
Please fix this feature now. Your customers will NOT wait 5 years! This is an essential function. Your cloud competitors are still much better in those foundational functions.
When are you going to quit thinking about it, and do something about it. Unbelievable that you have not done something about this. Five years!!!!!!

would be nice

This is absolutely a necessary feature, either on onedrive web than on IOS.
I think this is really embarassing for the product like OneDrive not to support such a basic feature as sorting order of different types... Albums become very difficult to use without it.
