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.

We have placed a simple list of meetings on a tab for people to have the ease of going in there and click on the link or copy/paste the link. this only stays about a few hours before the list is gone.

Teachers are using this as a method to assign homework to kids and yes it's gone.

I have created a channel and in the channel, created a forum for quiz. And this forum I added few users as "members" and revoked all permissions set for them....
But still these members able to edit and change the forum questions... which should not be...
Private channel owner unable to delete tabs! its a bug or by design issue can any one let me know.

Currently you can make private channels, and add tabs specific to that channel. So in effect, you should be able to accomplish this currently.
Permissions on individual tabs would be brilliant!

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.

Honestly a bit surprised that this is not getting noticed that much. I recently made a Wiki tab, and wanted Members to not be able to Edit it. But in order to revoke permissions, I have to revoke for every Tab period.
There's also the case that if a Tab is unable to be updated by Members, they also cannot Copy any info from it.
