Are you wanting the actual full lists to sort alphabetically from left to right? You're able to sort the cards within a list, but I'm not sure about automatically sorting the way lists are displayed on a board. As far as I know, the only way is to manually click and drag the lists around your board to order it the way you want.

yes, you are correct, i would like to sort all lists by alphabetic order. sounds like this is not immediately available? i found this feature useful especially when i have an array of lists on the board needing to be sorted. when do you think this feature could possibly go live?

No, it's not currently available as far as I know. This forum is mostly made up of members who don't work for Atlassian/Trello; it's a community forum where anyone can answer questions, so you'll need to follow this guide here to submit your request:
