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.

So many opportunities would be enabled by implementing this. We'd love to have a sharepoint site in a 'website' tab as the landing page so could customise content.

That update would be most welcome for several of my clients...

Completely agree with this request. Some channels I need a SPO page as the default tab, others I need files. Please implement this ASAP.
Definitely needs to be done, we use multiple channels and don't require 'posts' in each one, however use the files in them. The ability to change the default tab from 'Posts' to 'Files' would be well received.
Please add this functionality ASAP!
Channels have different purposes, and tabs offer different tools. Some channels would require a Microsoft List as the best start page (open issues), some would work better if it was a sharepoint page (welcome page, which explains the purpose of the channel), some would work great with a BI dashboard integrated. This would really make a huge difference in usability.
Nearly a year since the last update and still no news in regards to this request? It is an obvious improvement that should have been addressed by now!
This would be an amazing change and provide a lot of growth to the Team Channels I already use.
I have created a ton for my company and having the default landing tab be something else would be amazing. So many times someone doesn't know what to do in a team channel, and if this is made, that issue wouldn't happen anymore.
Adding my voice. :)

I've noticed a few times now that MS doesn't react to "UserVoice". Maybe to them it's just "UserNoise"?
Would be appreciated if you can start at Call tab because using Teams now also for our telephony
Any updates from MS? This would increase the usability of MS Teams.
It seems like a simple thing to do: select the tab, make it "default" landing page.MS you have done other things, I'm sure you can help with this one!!!
This is really annoying to switch all the time from Posts to Files. I work on multiple spaces on Teams and we only use Files in our organization. Default tab configuration is highly needed.
We need this functionality!
Agree, this one has been in the queue long enough, please show some acknowledgement of the 5000+ votes . . .
Waiting for this one!
Yep.... waiting for this one!

I suggest to make it an option to change the landing page for an individual.
