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.

I do find Teams a bit average. Shame, because it out to be awesome - but my users can't be bothered as the functionality simply isn't there to support the way a teams need to work
The is the first comment/concern/request from first time (and recurring users). Please do this soon!
@Warren where is this at in the queue now? July 2019.

I am pretty sure that almost no dev has gone into this product in the last couple of years.. That is why so many "features" look half implemented.
Agree with all the comments. It is little things like these why I have to continually fight to keep the team on Teams.
Fully agree with this request its slowing down adoption !! is there a roadmap available ?
Would like to be able to rearrange the tab order with the first tab being the default landing page.

any update on this?
Marcus Erb commented
this experience so so bad...is there a hack to change this. Our users in a Design department don't accept this aweful experience
Found this page from searching for how to accomplish it... astounding that this feature wasn't there from the start and that it has taken so long to implement...

Concur with the need to be able to change the default landing tab for each channel ore team.
Refer to and vote for "Rearrange all Tabs within a Channel" at
Please add this feature
PLEASE add this feature, my organisation is always going to want to get to files before chats.
It's maddening that any channel or team we open it's on chats first!!
Upvote. Please add this feature.
This would be an important add to make Teams the primary point of entry for my team.
Please address this... I thought this was supposed to be a productivity tool. Every time I switch channels, I should land on the most appropriate tab for that channel. By not having this feature, I am wasting a lot of time on.
Please put on the escalate to see this delivered as a fix as as possisble
Please fix this so that we can choose what tab we want defaulted for each channel. "Conversations" is not needed for the majority of my work on Teams.

New to Teams, and we have realized this was not a changeable. I am astounded. Why would the conversations tab be a forced default. Teams is supposed to be a simplified interface and I have had 3 complaints from non-tech savvy employees about this now. We aren't really going to use the conversation tab so my users are required to add an unnecessary click for each team they are involved in.
Please reconsider the backlog you put on this....... ALMOST 2 YEARS AGO.
