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.
Can Teams default be Files rather than Posts?
Paul Western commented
Please can this be given higher priority. The ability to choose any tab as the default landing page will provide much improved functionality within many of our companies Teams.

Still in backlog?
Rene Kluyskens commented
This would be very welcomed!
Michaël Jouve commented
This possibility would save us a lot of click !!
Sheridan Buckland commented
We rarely use the Posts tab so having to switch to Files or some other tab all the time is painful

Yes agreed it would be really nice to have this option. This would really help with communication. Also surprised this is not an option.

This would be a huge win for our org too. It is odd that this isn't already available. What gives?
Ian Simons commented
Being able to set the default tab within the channel would be a fantastic quality of life upgrade. We rarely use the 'Posts' tab and just the 'Files'. Being able to move the order or right click the tab to set the preferred one as default when you open the channel would be brilliant. 7th Oct 21

Another vote on 6th October 2021 for a feature requested back in year 2017!
Matthew George commented
I wouldn't think that this should be a heavy lift! Please bring this to Teams ASAP. this would be a game-changer!
Patrick Foose commented
My chief stakeholder would like to have this option.
Arthur Louwerse commented
Would be great!! Looking for this option for a while....
Jen Crosby commented
We'd really like to see this feature enabled. It makes sense to be able control the user experience this way - Teams isn't only about chat anymore.

A must to have feature to allow selecting default tab
Brad Robbins commented
We just asked this very question in my office. Sure would be nice to see MS support their user/customer base.

So many votes, so many comments. Yet one more area that Microsoft doesn't really listen to the User and what they want or how we can work more efficiently. Every app requires so many clicks to get the simplest things accomplished.
This has been out there since 2017 and no update in over a year. People wonder why I don't promote MS!
Such a basic option is a must. We use Teams channels as a Corporate- and Business news source. Going directly to the news tab when clicking the channel would be a big, big improvement.
