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.
Agree that there should be an ability for the Teams to determine what's the default tab - For us it's the Planner tab

Great idea - I would like to have page first to have something like teams webiste channel.

I also want to be able to change the the name of the defaul-chanel tab.
This is a great idea, and would be really useful for large public teams.
This would save our Operations team tons of time if we could have our Daily Tasks tab as our default tab instead of conversations. We hardly use the conversations tab and we need the ability to quickly take down tasks when we head to our page.
This change would be an extreme improvement for overall usability and efficiency of Teams!
Honestly, I'd just like to be able to change the default tab, not necessarily to a SP page. For me and my purposes, I'd default to our Planner tabs.

Support @carrie totally. BTW awesome product
This Feature would be very useful...
I created a "Home Page" tab that I update with recent announcements and I really want this to be the first thing my team sees when they open Teams. It gets frustrating having to tell them to click on the Home Page tab every time I update it. But if I don't tell them, they don't automatically go there and see the recent announcements. I would like the Conversations tab to move over to the right and only be displayed when they click on it. I want to delete the Files tab, because we have no use for it. It would really be helpful to be able to move, delete, and rename tabs, and to be able to choose the default tab that I want my team to see first.

Perfect idea--- Will help with user adoption if I can land them in the right tab

I was looking something like that. Just a landing page which could also include things like timelines, news, links, widgets, etc. whatever works and appeal team members :)
I love this idea - it makes the interface much more friendly, especially for people who don't frequently use Microsoft teams and want to quickly know what's available on each channel!
The ability to customize tabs would be highly appreciated. Both order and default tab should be determined by the owner of the Team.
Otherwise this program seems wery promising and i´m looking forward to seeing future improvements.

totaly agree !
I would like the functionality to choose while tab should be default for each channel. Some, it would be better to default to Files. Others, it'd be better to default to Conversations.
I created my own custom tab within all my channels for projects and would like to be able to default to that tab rather than the "conversations" default tab. It would be nice to be able to move the tabs around according to the one that is used most. It would save time.

I completely agree. I have an group of engineers that are having a hard time adopting. Having a landing page that gives them immediate information would help them see the value in using the tool more often

I don't really believe it's going to happen because it kinda contradicts Microsoft Team developers team's wish to make this chat application become the center of collaboration. Or is it just me?
