How do I set "sort by Alphabetical A-Z" as my default sort filter in collections?

How do I set "sort by Alphabetical A-Z" as my default sort filter in collections instead of it automatically defaulting to "newest." All of our boards in collections have been set up alphabetically and the new system is very frustrating.

Since the navigation change to Trello launched just recently, this Sort by most recent is the default for all Workspace boards too, including business class boards.

We want to be able to set the default for our workspaces to Alphabetical A-Z. It is very frustrating to have to change the sort order every time you visit a workspace.

Is there any way to set this by default via a workspace's settings? I cannot see any way to do this. Thank you.Trello - new navigation sort defaults.PNG

Yes!!!!!! This would be very helpful to sort alphabetically as default.

Hey @Manson Slik 

I understand what you're looking to change, but I'm afraid there's not a way to force a different default sorting for your collections. I'll definitely pass your interest in that over to our product teams though.

I can't give any guarantee that we'll be able to introduce that, but it will at least be logged internally and taken into consideration.

Let me know if there's any more questions or feedback I can share for you.

Yes another vote for being able to set the default setting for our workspaces to Alphabetical A-Z. I'm having the same problem. I numbered my boards in a certain order for organization and now they are always jumbled unless I change the setting manually. It becomes extra problematic when I'm sharing my boards with others and they are out of order.

Thank you

I am needing to also change the default setting for our workspaces to Alphabetical A-Z. Please help get this done.

+1 from me as well. This would be a super-convenient feature.

Another vote from me. We organize everything alphabetically by client code, and right now everything is jumbled. Thank you!

Me, too. I vote for an alphabetical A-Z default as well. Thanks.

I'd like to second this, but add to it. Would love to be able to set a default sort order based on any of the available criteria. In particular, we'd like to have every list default to sorting the cards by due date, so that the lists are in the order of when things need to be done.
