Sharepoint tab linked to a list, a library or even a specific view
At present, when adding a SharePoint tab, you can only link to a site. Since sites may be shared among several teams, team members will still have to browse the site to find material relevant for the actual channel. It would be nice if a tab could pull up a specific custom list, library or even a specific view of a library. That would keep stuff on the site in context for that particular channel.
This item is still in the works.
Also, thank you for the additional feedback. I will circle back to the feature team and provide a new update soon.

We can add a SP document library, but we cant add a specific view of that document library. With various people or teams working in the same SP library, we create various views for various teams. Thus adding a specific SP library view instead of "just" the full library helps in sorting and collaborating

I was going to suggest the ability to add sharepoint files as tabs, but thank you for pointing out that it's already there in a rather convoluted way.

The process to adding a sharepoint file as a tab is very confusing. I figured it out after about 30min. you have to add the library and then click on the document. I would suggest you add the ability to just directly add a file from sharepoint as a tab without going through the process of adding the entire doc lib. Even if you are doing it in the background.
