Sorting flows by name

Is there somehow a way that you can sort desktop flows in PA web concole by name or something like that? Clicking on columns above do nothing. When you have 100 or more flows it makes hard to manage and find something if it is not sorted.

I click on Name and it sorts by name.  Here is default (by Modified):



Here is by name:



Notice the sort arrows (ascending or descending).


Note: this is in Desktop.  You look like you are online, so don't know if it's different, but it looks exactly the same.

@MichaelAnnis Yeah that is in PAD editor, and that's fine but I'm talking about when you go to Microsoft PA platform through browser, where you manage all your flows and assign them to different environments and where you edit cloud flows and schedulers etc.

I would contact Microsoft Support.  They clearly meant for it to be in there:



However, manually changing the "aria-sort" field to "ascending" has no effect.

Is this going to be implemented in new updates. Or maybe to put all scheduled flows under specific tab, where it could be easily seen on wheech machine is certain flow running etc and at what times. All in all, when you have 50 or more scheduled flows it's hard to maintain all that and keep track, because now you have to enter each flow and go to edit section so you could see when it is scheduled. It would be very useful if Microsoft team would add special column for 'Machines' to Flow page and maybe for the scheduled time. It would look something like this..
