How can we make Microsoft Teams better?

Change initial tab

Right now, the Conversation tab is the initial tab in a channel. I would like to put my Planner tab as the initial tab, so everytime I open my Channel, the first thing I see is the Planner tasks. I can only arrange the new tabs, but the Conversation, File and OneNote can not be changed nor deleted.

    I would like to make the associated SharePoint home page as the default tab. this gives us the opportunity make the user to land on the home page when they open a team or specific channel.

    Yep, I want to be able to re-arrange tabs. Mainly I want to have the planner show up as the first tab, the others don't matter so much. Pinning conversations to the frontpage is useless to me.

    I would love to have the ability to change the initial tab in a channel!!

    For instance, if you want the Wiki page or a file to be the first thing "landed" on when a team member goes there.

    That would help focus direction when needed!

    It should be possible to define the starting tab instead of "Conversation", since not every team need the communication tab as main-hub. Re-arranging with drag&drop is an additional advantage.

    I have several channels where I am the only user/participant, so it makes no sense to have the Conversation tab as the default initial tab in these channels. For optimal workflow I want the Planner tab to start up first. So being able to cutomize tab order (individual ordering of tabs per channel) would be a big help.

    I can understand not allowing developers to delete the Conversations and Files tabs, but please give us the ability to reorder all tabs including Files and Conversations.
