Team Dashboard / Landing Page
When you click on a Team, it would be nice if you got a dashboard for the team / landing page instead of going directly to the "general" channel.
This would be a great place to roll-up information for activity in the team:
- recent conversations (from all channels within the team)
- recent or all documents (similar to the OneDrive landing page, but scoped to the Team
- membership list
- pinned content
- static content (to post general team information)

Interested to follow this thread, we too need to create a main landing page for a channel, repeatable and customisable after.

I would love MS Team to consolidate information and this would help us scan and focus.

Yes, a customizable, default landing page is needed

A dashboard would be nice - yes - but just a simple landing page would be a great way to start.
- One piece of custom graphics/bacgground
- Team description
- A field with additional text
- A field with Team activity summary (like "6 members, 7 new files this week, last activity on …".
I agree a proper Dashboard would also be nice, but simetimes you need to start small in order to actually get the ball rolling. Therefore my suggestion to the dev team is: Start with a simple landing page. That should be something you can make in a single sprint, whereas a Dashboard with 3rd party content and stuff requires much more implementation time.

The ability to pull in third-party app info as well. The ability to build dashboards within the landing page so you can see or pull in any content within teams. Be able to change the size of the dashboards as well.

This would be nice if you are able to pin channels to dashboard to view in one window the latest massages without jumping betweeen channels and teams even the activity window already shows the newest messages. In dashboard view: Team - Channel - Message
And the langing page (the most used channel on the selected team) would help new prople to use Teams.
Very important! Dashboard should be personalized (e.g. with planner tasks, last chats, etc.)
