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.
Any progress with this? I agree that it would be a beneficial feature.

This feature would be very beneficial toward creating a more useable product. Stepping into the Team use is totally dependent on my trust in MS pushing features and fixes.

Yes Same Here - I want to add a SharePoint Web Page and use it as a Landing Page to Link our Old Site directly into Teams - and not having it as the default makes it very clunky! Please add asap. Thanks
Yes this a pretty basic concept and should be added asap. It is extremely annoying to land on a page which nobody uses.
Erica Morrison commented
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.
I'll add my voice to the chorus. Our default landing page preference would be pretty much anything BUT conversations.
Ado Zera commented
Please do this. My team would like to go directly to files. We have no use for conversations. Not having this modification is creating inefficiencies and confusion.
is this idea still in backlog?
this would be a huge usability win!
This would be really helpful. Please take in this request. Thank you in advance.
Is there change since 2018 ? Is it still in the backlog ? seems strange this feature is not implemented as it's one of the first idea coming when you create a Team
Andrew Jacks commented
I am surprised that this request has yet to be dealt with.
Especially as an example a Power BI Dashboard cold provide an overview of the team status.
Conversations, files etc in some teams are just noise.
Mel M commented
Would definitely improve usability and uptake of teams. Similarly defaulting to returning to the page you were in would be great.
Brian Mantel commented
Please add this feature ASAP.
Still in backlog since Aug 2018???!!!
Is this feature still in the backlog? If I had the ability to view my custom tab when opening the team site, I could open directly to a dashboard created in SmartSheet.
Much more powerful than the conversation tab!
Any update regarding this backlog?
This would be really helpful for me to set a Sharepoint webpage as the default landing page of a team channel and give me the ability to maximise the benefit of Teams.
Would love to see an update on this!

This feature should not be on the backlog, please review. Thanks in advance.
I need this badly... We don't use the conversation tab much, I'd rather have another tab as the landing tab,
Pete Garvey commented
Is there an update to this? We are really in need of this to direct users to the most relevant tab in a channel.
