German sort order incorrect

New Contributor

When I sort my students by name in Teams I get Bernhart, Burtscher, Böckle whereas Excel sorts as follows Bernhart, Böckle, Burtscher which is the correct sort order. How can I configure Teams to sort correctly? Many thanks for your replies.

Alphabetically is sounds right! There’s no way to change this in Teams afaik but might also be something with the language set in teams.


if there’s something wrong I’d also suggest providing feedback to Microsoft about this via Help -> Feedback

Many thanks, Adam. I see! Sounds right seems to be a good option for English. For German it is annoying and error-prone. I will give Feedback a chance.
