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.
This feature is still in the backlog.

Absolutely needed. We would prefer to have an SP/Wiki landing page with summarised pertinent info rather than the chat window.
This needs to be fixed. But it is probably assigned to someone who isn't with Microsoft anymore. I wonder if these forums are monitored.

"""This feature is still in the backlog."""
Translated,,,,, Forget about ever seeing it done.
There's only about a million people so far that have state that this is needed.
Having to click on "Files" EVERY time I move inside Teams is a pain in the donkey.
Why is this so hard to accomplish and why isn't it done already?
No, I don't expect an answer from MS before 2035.
(Yes, I'm jaded after working with MS products since 1995.)

Please add the feature to default tab selection when opening 365 Groups
Please update the status of the backlog.
Is this feature will keep remain in backlog for lifetime?
Please, allow the ability to change default tab.

I would like to be able to select which tab is the default when selecting a channel.
Looks like the last admin response was from August 2018, can we get an update?
Support for this request, also for the Android app. My users are asking why they default get the "Chat" tab shown, when all new stuff appears under the "Teams" tab.
I'm upping this one as well, it's really helpful to create a team landing page, preferably Sharepoint for our use and to make this the default tab to go to when opening Teams. It provides a lot more flexibility.
Hoping for this ability soon. It is annoying
Please complete this. The forced use of the general page and inability to change the default page that opens when you open teams is a problem.

Flush the backlog and make this happen please.

please add this feature... it is really needed
Yes, please allow this ability to change default tab
PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE get this capability out of the 8/2018 backlog and into development to allow configuration and adjustment of the tab order. One channel might need one, another something else. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE allow us to determine our own use cases and configure as needed in the real world.
We really need this change - a huge time waster!!

@Warren been "in the backlog" for over a year! what is the deal??
Richard B commented
Admins should be able to drag and drop tabs to choose which one is first, and the first should always be the default one that opens for everybody that goes there.

Teams should remember the last tab. If it was a file tab, then it should remember the position within the file hierarchy.
