With Word Online you can create numbered and bulleted lists, but you can’t sort lists alphabetically. You can sort lists alphabetically in the desktop version of Word.
If you have Word, click Open in Word.
Then follow the instructions in Sort a list alphabetically.
When you save the document and reopen it in Word Online, you’ll see the changes you made to the list.
