How do I sort rooms and users in Hipchat (under Rooms & People section)

On the Left hand side of the tool, it lists all the rooms and users. How do I sort them by name?



Hi Praveen. :) You can click them and drag them around to change the order.  There isn't a button to click that will alpabetize them or otherwise sort in an automated way, though.

Are there any plans to include a sort button function?

It would be SWELL if there was a button that could sort by

Hope this helps.



I am wondering if it is this easy, how come Atlassian is not incorporating it in the build itself.
