Can I see a list of Hipchat chats sorted according to the most recent one?

A lot of people at the office complain they cannot sort HipChat conversations according to the most recent timestamp. This causes frustration as people realize they have been sent messages days before, but they did not notice them in the first place.

Sorting conversations is something that has come up several times internally among our team as well. It can be difficult to get the experience right for everyone though, so we don't have anything definitive yet. However, we are actively working on providing counts of unread messages for all conversations, which will hopefully alleviate much of the problem you mentioned. 

Thanks for your response. Yeah, I thought it would be something requested quite often. My main suggestion now would be to show the unread message count on devices separately, as it is with Slack now. Now when you sign in on Hipchat, after having received messages from several people, the notifications all disappear, even after logging on a PC version on HipChat. I suggest making these independent, so in my scenario, after signing on a PC, the unread notifications would still show up there despite launching HipChat on an iPhone before. 

Showing counts is nice, but please also include (a) ability to pin favorite conversations, and (b) ability to sort all conversations by most recent message (I reveive a lot of one-off messages and otherwise I'm continually scrolling down my conversation list)

It's been a long time for this basic feature.  The experience better be a killer one for the time it is taking for this simple feature (sort alphabetically for example) to be delivered, specially when Dark Theme and others seem to be higher in the backlog....
