Change which Tab is default landing page for a Team and/or Channel
Right now the conversation tab is the default landing page for a Team and/or Channel.
I want to be able to have a SharePoint site landing page in a tab and that tab be the default tab open when you navigate to a team or channel.
Think of it like a landing page for that team. You may not want it to drop right into Conversations. If you can have a SharePoint page with a Microsoft Teams conversations web part, you get the best of both worlds.
I can see a lot of scenarios where you'd want the chat window open and another tab at the same time. Rather than having to context switch. Imagine the SharePoint page tab being the way to do that by using Web Parts on a dashboard. A web part for the Microsoft Team and another web part for whatever was in another tab.
I apologize for not having updated this. Changing the landing page for a Team and/or Channel remains on the backlog at this time.
trying to drive this up to 666 comments. yes, please allow for "Files" to be the default landing page. no one uses "Posts" and it's an added annoyance. any ETA for an enhancement?

I came here to see if there is a way to open on files instead of posts as the default. Not looking very promising. Why is this not being addressed? There seem to be a lot of requests for it.
As others have mentioned - the default tab is the Post tab, and nobody ever posts (if they need to, they use chat), so the Posts page looks bank and the main content you want people to see is elsewhere. I also want to be able to change the order so, for example Files is not up front because I want people to navigate the content in a specific way not see it all in a pile in Files. However on another Team, Files is the main tab because it is being used more like a repository, so i would want Files to be default tab.

Absolutely, Agree this is a great product that can be used as a central drive for access to files rather than making a clunky SharePoint site.
The landing page for my channels go directly to "posts." Nobody in my team has any use for the "posts" page. That's why the chat feature exists. Please allow us to choose the default landing page for our channels!!!! Listen to the people!!!!
To be able to change the landing page is crucial for the implentation of teams.
You have to make it interesting and this is not the way.
It looks and feels old.

Please move this up. Our students are not always finding their way in Teams, being able to change the default tab would really help.
Please allow us to set the Channel's landing page, or make it Files by default.
For every post requesting this there's 1000's of views in favor and countless other's that's not been here yet.

I agree with being able to customize the landing tab for a channel. The reason I don't pay attention to Posts and Files on any platform is because they are not curated. Wikis can be curated and my efforts to keep my Teams relevant is by keeping the Wikis curated: up-to-date, prioritized, clean, and relevant. Having to click to the curated content is another (albeit minor) impediment to ease-of-use. "Click-then-have-to-Search" is not a good process.
Please make "Files" the default tab under a Channel!!
we mainly use it for sharing files, so yes, please make the "Files" default tab. Who needs "Posts" anyway? Or make it configurable. Thank you!
Is there an update on this?

So...3 years later is this still on the backlog?
To make Teams usable to really work with, this is absolutely necessary. It should also be extremely easy and quick to implement...
I'd like to see the Files tab by default when I click on a channel. Please allow the user to select the default view, and I'm adding my vote for this feature.
Thank you for getting to this as quickly as you can!

Most disappointing aspect of teams. Our staff HATES the post tabs so all they use Teams for is chat and video. Actually going to Team is the last thing they seem to want to do and it's sad because there's so much great stuff there!
Please implement this feature to customize which tab is default within a channel
