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.

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.
Cory Tomlinson commented
Ideally...Drag the tabs to the order your want. Whichever tab is in position number one is the default tab that shows when the Channel is opened. Easy.
James Summerton commented
Where we have a Team that is for more general use like Onboarding, having the conversations tab be the default with no options to change is not great.
Please look at implementing this feature, from the comments and the votes, it looks like it is really wanted.
I need to configure default tab. What is the status of this enhancement?
So... Is it still in the backlog? When can we expect this function become reality?
HAPPY BIRTHDAY BACKLOG !!!!!

Please add this function so it sets the right home page for the team, like SharePoint.
Why would you not want to land on the home page of a site?
Please move this to the top of the list!

Any update about this request ?
seems to be a huge problem. Unfortunately we had to change from Confluence Wiki to MS Teams and it's no comparison. MS Teams is lame for now.
Any update on this? It's been 2 years since the original request and we're coming up to a year without feedback from the Microsoft team.

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
