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.
If there are two comments a day on a thread from 2017, then this should be your top priority. Pretty simple guys. Let us pick which tab a channel opens on. Like soon.
We need this feature. We want to have an org wide team which we want the landing default page to be training videos. If its the third tab along people will get confused and wont look for it.
can this please be looked at
This is a huge usability limitation for effective communication in Teams. Putting important content in a wiki that is, at best, the 3rd tab in the channel means it won't be seen by many team members regardless of how often you share a link.

Seriously when is this going to be possible... Suggestion was made in 2017... Such a basic functionality shouldn't take 3 years to evaluate and deploy... Either say it's not going to be ever possible or implement it already....
Just trying to do this again, today... Would be so useful.
I thought Microsoft was clever at this sort of thing. Come on guys, take a look at how many people would like this to work properly
This is so basic. As a teacher I want the first page to be the plan for the week. Please change this

This definitely needs to float to the top of the backlog. The amount of times I have to switch tabs on a daily basis is probably adding up to 1 - 3 hours monthly. It adds up. Please implement this feature.
Disappointing that this was started on March 22, 2017! Some real drawbacks with Teams in not being able to manage Tabs - particularly in the education sector. Ugh. : (

Please move this higher on the backlog.

This is the thing most complained about for customers we convert to teams. PLEASE make it possible to change the landing page to Files. It has been a showstopper
James McIntyre commented
Please move it to a higher priority.
This is a serious issue to adoption. We are trying to migrate all of our teamwork files from Network drives in the data center and many of our groups just want the files feature and definitely want at least the option of defaulting to the files tab.

Agree with the 322 comments! How hard can putting this fix in. All it would take is to add a drop down to each of the tabs created (like when I add a Sharepointe tab... there is a drop down option) and have an option that says MAKE DEFAULT PAGE.
May not be e developer, but doesn't sound as complicated as putting a man on the moon.
Hi! I am organizing a team site for a long term project with multiple workstreams. While I like the convenience of having the posts be the default opening or landing page, my view is that it is also distracting. I would like a landing or opening page to provide more general knowledge and project explanation and breakdown. I would prefer the posts be the second tab. Is there a way to change this. And I assume the general channel is always first and must always be named general? Thanks
I want my default tabs to be the SharePoint hub site for each Team. It doesn't seem like it should be complicated.
Landing straight into "posts" is bad practice and poor HCI! I will be using Google classroom until this is customisable... so many people have requested this feature... come on MS!
One of the main reasons NOT to choose Teams
Hard to believe that MS decided the "posts" tab is the most useful. Who thought of THAT? So amazing that the user cannot change this to what they really need. I hate having to click the Files tab I need EVERY time, especially when it is the only tab I ever use for a particular channel. We have been waiting for 3 years!!!!!! please tell me there is a way to do this now.
On the backlog for almost a year so doubt it is important to Microsoft
Absolutely! I use Teams at my school and the conversation tab is so distracting to students. The option to use a different tab would be amazing.
