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.

Need to push performance indicator result and development to all coworkers for awareness (white collar environment) when leaving Temaplace/SharePoint as entering point for coworkers. Using PowerBI for visualizing this but now it's "hidden" and demands active clicking to be flashed and that leads to low awareness of our performance development and low energy for the Improvement Culture.
So we need this to help us grow the Continuous Improvement Culture and feeding the "Living Process" with energy.
Add my voice to the vote to have this feature added to set default to a specific tab - i.e,. Home tab that is connected to sharepoint site
Our users at THRYV are eagerly waiting for this feature. Please make is asap
Thanks in advance, Team of MS Teams
Yeah, I agree with Andrew. This is a no brainer and shouldn't be that hard to do. Like literally one line of code.
Please implement this feature as soon as possible. This is a no-brainer.
Please at least share what the actual beaviour is. Right now whenever I switch back to Teams tab I'm taken to a particular team's General channel's Files tab and not even the root folder, but a /folder /folder/ folder... As if Teams decided: this is the place you will start from. FOREVER. And I can't change it no matter what I do.

Please allow us to choose which tab is the active tab upon clicking on a Teams Channel! Please... User disengagement and time wasted is the opportunity cost! Teams is so stale...

Aggree on need for this.
I have 1000+ users that almost never use the chat landing.

Please can you provide an ETA, we are many that need a better landingpage to efficiently utilize Teams!
Presumably a minor thing. Has been on the backlog for 4 YEARS. You're killin us guys...
Let's get a move on. Understand the idea when the program was launched, focus on team spirit and messages and all. But no-one is at this stage interested to have this as the landing page. It needs to be switched to files.
This is an Important feature to improve efficiency and communication!

Such a simple feature guys... Submitted back in May 2017... 4474 votes.. What is even the point of uservoice if such a basic thing just gets dustbunnied?
I never heard of UserVoice before, which seems nice.
Unfortunately this does not seem like a priority...
I was just searching with Google on how to change the default landing page in MS Teams. Top response yet again is UserVoice.
Seems UserVoice is replacing all the multitude of help forums for questions on Microsoft Products like MSTeams. Soon I think when I need to know about how to do something I will search User Voice to find out if the feature or thing I want has even been implemented.
Then as per usual the most recent comments of desperation include "IT has been X years why has this not been implemented"

The original post was March 2017 so this March it will be 4 years and not implemented yet. I realize that the original concept of TEAMS was to compete against SLACK, but you have far exceeded the Capabilities of SLACK. TEAMS backend is SharePoint so let SharePoint be the landing place so people can customize their team/channel landing pages. Now that Salesforce owns or will own SLACK, I'm sure they will be looking for ways to overtake TEAMS/Microsoft 365. Please make sure that doesn't happen!
In the backlog and queued you say, this shouldn't take to much effort for you to implement. ETA?
Not being able to do this is stopping us from using Teams for an entire segment of our user community. We definitely need this.
we need to personnalize this view to have it as closer as possible than the way we work.
Yes please consider the options to either hide Posts tab or allow each org to set a default tab to open at launch. Would be most helpful to facilitate user acceptance and reduced clicks. thx.
