Allow Groups List to be Sorted Alphabetically
Currently the Outlook Groups list in the bottom of the Outlook navigation pane is sorted by the order a person joined, without any option to sort alphabetically. Would like to be able to sort alphabetically. Note, on the Mac version of Outlook, the list is sorted alphabetically by default. I want to display the contact list group in my address book. On the Outlook Contacts screen, the left side displays a folder containing multiple contacts. This folder can be grouped. If you click “To” when composing mail, multiple address books will be displayed, but I also want this group to be displayed. An additional option to sort or list Group Contact list to be sorted alphabetically would be an added benefit.

メール作成時に "宛先" をクリックした際には、複数のアドレス帳が表示されますが、このグループも表示されるようにしてほしいです。
I'd like to be able to sort manually, not just alphabetically. And just to confirm I'm talking about the "Groups" entry in the left hand navigation pane, not contact groups. Also would like to be able to move the whole "Groups" section up or down within the overall navigation pane.

I'd like to second the request of Tom Roy below. I've been using Yammer for quite some time. It's so logical to expect the Group order to be arranged manually. Surprised it cannot be. Yes, drag-n-drop is expected, but there are other ways to accomplish this. If I'm joined to many groups, several appear only if I View All. I want to place my most interesting Groups at the top of my list. Please provide a means to do so. Thanks.

Currently you can only sort rules by using an up and down arrow to move one rule at a time.
I currently have 183 rules running on each PC - If I need to check them - they are in random order - I cannot easily find them or check there are not duplicates.
If Rules were automatically sorted alphabetically by Rule name this would assist.
OR If there was a button to sort them it would help greatly.
AND If you could move more than one rule at a time it would help greatly also.
The whole thing just needs more flexibility. Personally I would like to be able to move it up above Search Folders, Scheduled, RSS subscriptions (Why can't I make this go away? I have no RSS subscriptions!), Outbox, Conversation History....... Yeah. I think that gets it. Out of all of those I only look at the outbox and then only on occasion in case something got stuck.

Allow Groups to be sorted manually via drag and drop so they can be arranged how ever a user wants them organized, by relevancy to the user's preference for example.

It is really confusing to have email sorted by newest first, and groups to be sorted by newest last. Please at least make it configurable, and consider make it the default. It is bad enough that email isn't ordered the same way on different devices.
