User customizable left navigation
The far left navigation panel seems to have a whole lot of blank space just calling out to be filled with things, and there is plenty of functionality within Teams that could be put there so users could reach it faster. That big gap between Files and Feedback is wasted space!
You should let individual users decide what goes in this space by giving them the ability to pin additional things they want there. I use the 'Saved' functionality a lot for example. It would be nice to have it out there only one click away. Perhaps I think a certain person, bot, or channel is important enough to deserve placement out there. Or how about a certain Tab somewhere.
Give the user the choice and allow them to make Teams their own!
This feature request is now in the planning stage. As more details become available, I will post them here.
planner shortcut on the left nav bar, please!
My company just went to Teams from Skype and I would LOVE to see this upgrade
any news? Having this will encourage adoption in companies.
the Stream app only allows users to see their 'watchlist' is there a way we can change this to a selected channel or to see the homepage of Stream?
Any news on this subject?
I would like to have a Planner shortcut on the left just like the ones for Meetings, Teams, etc.
Especially to PIN the things that are currently under the ellipses icon. I'd love to pin Planner over there since I use that a lot.
Any update? It's been 8 months since the last post...

Any updates on this one? Can we have Shifts pinned in desktop app ?
If we can't customize the left rail, can you at least move Shifts to the visible apps? With StaffHub going away in October, Shifts is a critical app and should not be hidden. Thanks.
Have just found this article on the MS website that fits the requirement.
I have made the configuration changes, just waiting for them to become active.
We also need to pin planner to the left side nav bar, instead of clicking the "..." more options first.
Are we able to pin planner to the left side nav bar yet?
update on progress of this simple function ??

Are there any updates on this? It has been quite a while since this was said to be in planning. I am hoping to have this feature added sometime sooner rather than later.
Yes, please let us pin our Teams Apps on the left! Also I'd like if we can change the order of pinned items as desired.
Simple PIN/UNPIN in the ellipses for the apps will be enough. No 1 year planning needed.
I assumed that I would be able to pin apps to my left navigation bar. A bit disappointed. Any updates on when this feature will be rolled out? I don't like having to dig for Planner.
Any progress on this?
