    If setting/changing default tab is not feasible, it would even be helpful if a channel opened to the last tab that was viewed.

    Yes. Want to be able to choose which tab is first opened. This will enhance Teams and will allow us to focus our team on the most used tab. Enhances efficiency.

    Trying to minimize keystrokes and maximize efficiency, this would truly help the process if I could select a Team and it go directly to the folder that "I" have pre-selected as the default. Please make this change.

    Agree. We need to select a tab other than Conversations to be our default. Please do this.

    Starting an Enterprise roll out of Teams... not having the ability to set a channel default tab is a HUGE frustration, making the roll out that much more painful and difficult for new user adoption and education. We need this asap.

    +1. Default tab needs to be user defined at some level. Continually having to change it every time we switch channels interferes with efficient working - a waste of time.

    We need this. Sometimes a channel is document-centric, or task-centric. In such cases, the default tab should be the Files tab, or a specific document, or the tasks tab (whether it's Planner or another task app).

    There might be other use cases as well. For example have the wiki or OneNote as default tab for a notes-centric channel. Or have a dashboard (Power BI) as default.

    PLEASE allow default landing to be user set, conversations have remained intrusive for a year and EVERY time we use Teams we switch to Files view.

    This would a be a great idea as could put a SharePoint page of information as the first thing the user sees on entering the channel.
