How can we make Microsoft Teams better?

Better permissions for tabs

Right now Team permissions can only be set for members to "Create, update, and remove tabs". This means any member can remove a tab, which has happened several times in our Teams. The owner should be able to lock certain tabs so that members can update it but not delete the tab.

    Permissions don't work for all tabs.

    Example: admins of a channel want to restrict the permission to edit/change/add/delete tabs to themselves. Members shall be free to contribute to conversations or to add files.

    If checkbox for "create, update, and remove tabs" is unchecked for members, they might not be able to change wiki/conversations and files.

    However, they are still able to change tabs which are originated from OneNote, Word etc. Admins could use pdf to display information, but then they would need to store the "original document" separately and create pdfs whenever they need to update.

    Would it be possible to extend coverage of the permissions/restrictions to those OneNote/Word tabs as well?

    Also the ability to control what team members have access to what tabs in the team.
