Rearrange all Tabs within a Channel
I know a similar request is marked as "We have this!", but it's not possible to move all tabs.
I can rearrange the tabs that I add, but Conversations and Files cannot be moved.
I would like to have a channel that starts with a Planner tab, and another that starts with a Wiki tab.
Not everyone channel will be based around conversations, so it should be possible to move the Conversation and File tab to the far right.

YES agree - have only just started using teams but certainly being able to move tabs about within channels, so can customise which tab I see first for which channel would be very helpful!
YES! Please... most of my channels need to have a SmartSheet first, then the conversation.

I understand Teams is a communication tool, but I don't see why discussion posts have to be priority? We are able to change our own added tabs, why not all tabs? We should be given the choice and not have this decision forced upon us.
My reason for wanting to change is if I add a tab that links to a seperate SharePoint Site Page, it asks for authentication, however, if I open the Team Home tab first, then click on my seperate SharePoint Site Page tab, authentication is no longer required, as it then knows I have permission to view? Not sure why needing to click on the Home tab resolves this issue?

Agreed, the ability to move tabs to fit individual requirement - be that Files first, Wiki etc - is basic and essential for the end user experience.
YES please - still a priority. Our scenario is that we'd like our official 'news' as the first tab
M. Conroy commented
YES! We want this, too. Multiple groups here in our org have also requested this feature. We want to truly determine our users' experience. Thanks.

Have clients asking for the ability to have Files as the 1st tab.
Our company uses teams and would like the Files tab first.

We are an architecture firm trying to use Teams as a kick-off point for our projects. We would like to host a project dashboard from a PowerApp as the first tab in all of our project teams.
Not all teams require collaborative conversations. Planners, forms, files are often teh common interface for team members. Please allow the conversation tab to moved back to allow important/relevant tabs to be moved forward.

We don't use the "Conversations" or "Files" tabs so much, as we try to point some of our (slightly technophobic) team members to precisely the content they need. I don't mind it existing, I don't even mind if I can't make it invisible (but that would be an option, to be honest). But this (along with the badly named and unnecessary "General" channel) are Microsoft imposing its working practices on users. Let me at least move it.
And please please please please please let me at least rename the "General" channel -- I could use it for something then, instead of it just getting in the way.

ABsolutely!~ Need to be able to manage the view so it's relevant to the use of the channel. Many of my channels should start with the Wiki, not Conversations...
Agree, need to order and pin tabs for our own preferences/needs
PLUS - is this a bug ? - currently when I move tabs they don't stay in the sequence I select!
I see other peoples comments regarding files and conversations cant be moved - fair enough - but it sounds like others are successfully ordering the rest of their tabs and nobody has said they have any issues with that. But when I order my tabs, they seem to randomly jump out of sequence afterwards. Am I missing something?

Agreed, this is an extremely basic capability. Customizing your first view in a team productivity tool is so 101 it's hard to believe this is still lacking.
Chris Newman commented
I realized Teams needed this capability within the first 10 minutes of use. It's a shame such a needed and seemingly basic tab-related feature hasn't been implemented yet.
I have a feeling Microsoft is wanting to have Conversations and File in the same location no matter what channel you are on. If they aren't willing to budget on that, at least let us pick a default tab to view first.
I guess I'll continue to painfully click off the Conversations tab every time I navigate to a channel.
When is this being updated? We want and need to land on the Wiki tab, not the conversations tab!
Completely agree with this. We need to land on the files tab
Another vote for this
Bob L. commented
Exactly, my team needs to land on the files tab not conversations tab.
Another vote to allow all tab manipulation, hide, move, rename, lock...clear chat history or archive.
