Sorting of group names by number of members vs alphabetical seems absurd

Nextcloud version 15.0.4, but was same in 13 and 14:
Operating system and version : unknown
Apache or nginx version (eg, Apache 2.4.25): unknown
PHP version (eg, 7.1):unknown

The issue you are facing: The groups list sorts by number of members, high to low, rather than a far more useful alphabetical. This odd and vexing when trying to find a group as it requires a full list search. Is there a useful reason for this? Is it configurable to sort alpha?

Is this the first time you’ve seen this error? (Y/N):

Steps to replicate it:

The output of your Nextcloud log in Admin > Logging:


The output of your config.php file in /path/to/nextcloud (make sure you remove any identifiable information!):


The output of your Apache/nginx/system log in /var/log/____:


Can I also say that this sort order is a bit ridiculous?

Far better to either sort in alphabetical, or give us a choice.

I’m glad it is not just me. Now, how do we find a way to be part of the conversation on these UX

Normally, you fork, fix the code, and send in a merge request.

Been away for a while and not using NC. Starting a new project and see this is still in play in 22.1.1. Is there a different UX forum or something where it would get attention. I am happy to contribute within my knowledge and skill. I do not have the knowledge to fork the code to fix this.
