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.

I am absolutely stunned and appalled at how idiotic this is... you're telling me that I can't SORT MY PHOTOS IN THE **** PHOTO ALBUM?? Is this truly the quality of Microsoft's work that we've all learned to trust?? This is beyond ridiculous, why am I paying for this?? Even someone learning coding for their first time in junior high would be able to code this feature in... my god.

It is crazy not being able to put albums in order. My albums are marked 1,2 3 ... and are listed in no order at all.

Any idea when this is coming? I am a OneDrive user for years now. Don't you think this is taking a bit too long?
This is an basic and elemenatal feature of a photo app! Please add this soon! (Sorting A-Z, Custom Order).
I want to manually sort the photos in an album, as I now can in a OneDrive folder of photos (rearrange and save sort order). This is the most basic and essential of functions for a photo album! I'm not even sure what the work-around is -- download the album, then upload it to a folder, and then rearrange it??
A possibility that I can add the Albums which people shared with me into my album would be great.
Then One Drive is using a order in my Albums which I do not like and it does mix up my Albums. I would prefer to change my Album order for example to A-Z.
I use OneDrive in work and I have started using it a Home but it is incredibly frustrating not being able to simply sort photos in Albums. So much so, it is making me think of moving back to Apple. It makes absolutely no sense to have the oldest photo listed first in an Album and then having to scroll through thousands of photos to get to the latest.
I have given up on albums and just use the folders. That is OK for my primary use case of posting photos from single events. If I wanted to organize by themes, in which one photo could be in multiple albums, it would be nice if the Albums worked properly.
You can sort and rearrange photos in a regular file folder, but not in a photo album. And even if you go ahead and rearrange your photos in a file folder and THEN create a photo album from that file folder, alas, all changes are lost. Beyond frustrating. Hard to understand how MS has not fixed this yet.
In this era
Now You just think about it,
where all want to focus on things on his place
This is a basic function to sort our photos
I think you add the option of a sort which is work like windows folder sort option.
OneDrive - you are so far behind the competition when it comes to file handling! It's so annoying! and the worst part is you guys don't even appear to be concerned about this at all! Unless you guys are prepared to commit resources to improving this product (which doesn’t appear the case yet - people have been asking for this very basic feature since at least 2015!!), thinking best thing to do is take my subscription elsewhere! Very disappointed.
"Thinking about it"... Mac iPhoto has the best setup: you can set up an album with the recently uploaded group of pics, create an album for Any special events/trips/Whatever You Want, And name these albums Whatever You Want so they sort in Whatever Order You Want!!! I thought OneDrive was the answer to my cloud storage problems but apparently I was Wrong!! :(
At the very least Albums should show by the date of the photos like in the Windows 10 photo app, not by album creation date.
I am currently reorganizing my photo collection and new albums I created for older photos show up first.
The ability to sort the albums, and move them around in relation to each other in any fashion I like, would be a really welcome feature.

Its baffling that Microsoft cant add this simple feature. In the big picture (no pun intended) this matters very little. I just want to sort my photo albums the way I want to dammit!
Concur, this is such a basic function how can they not have it? Rhetorical. Have been researching and apparently there should be a "Rearrange' function under "Sort' but not in my Onedrive. I have taken a load of site photos for work and need to put them in a logical order for the engineers to view but can't because MS don't believe in providing the customer what they want...
Simon Foley commented
The lack of this feature has made me totally re-think my planned use of OneDrive for my photos and go elsewhere!
I have suggested that a sorting function be added to OneDrive several times before. Please write some code...that's all it takes.
It is rediculas that you cant't sort photo's the way you want
So after 3 years, we are still unable to sort? This is ridiculous!
