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)
I think the Post section is Teams was poorly thought through. Think about it, when you are invited to join a team the first thing you want to see is an introduction telling you what this team is for. Next, you want to see important messages. Hosts want to be able to at like hosts and welcome people and highlight important things. Unfortunately, the first thing you see is a noisy scrolling audit log .. fair enough add an audit log as the 6th or 7 tab but have the ability to hide junk like abc was added to this group and xyz set-up meeting. Imaging you were using a channel to run a project and the landing screen was your 'Project on a Page' that would nail it.
We were just chatting about exactly this, that way you could pin key documents etc
Yes - a dashboard/landing page for a Team would be great. Perfect place to outline the purpose of the Team in a bit more detail (vs. description when you set it up).
Can MS TEAM developer work out a way to allow disable of auto email out the notification to the members when it is added
In my case, I added the members and they received the notification that to the main teams. However, I want them to go to the specific channel created within the TEAM.
how to only send the specific notification link to these group as now they are received twice the notification - 1st the main page, 2nd the channel they are added to.... is very confusing for the person who received.
Need urgent help
I created a TEAM chat with multiple channels . I want to remove the subtitle that show in the TEAM title as per image highlighted, how to remove it.. I cannot edit or remove when I click on Manage team and edit, it does not show the description.
and how to stop auto send email out when I created a member into the main group , i just want the in channel and where to send the link of the specific channel the the member inside.
The last comment I'm seeing is in April - has there been any news on making this happen? Thanks
To add an APP (Example SharePoint page), and make it as default.. This would be very useful.
Paul Richardson commented
This is a great idea - The Microsoft Stream Group page does a good job of this but it would be extremely useful in Teams.
If this is done, and there are modules, PLEASE make sure there's an "image" box or frame where we can upload anything we need.
A team landing page which is customisable as a reception area for teams. Perhaps the simplest way would be to allocate a tab as the landing page then this could be a sharepoint home page or a powerpoint file or one note page. T
is this on the roadmap...
There is a Wiki tab under each Channel that might work for some:-
Added on the topic, and agree, we need a Dashboard /Landing page
Yes, I concur. This would make teams much more useful. We end up with MANY different teams, and it becomes time consuming to figure out where things stand with each project or group.

It will be a great start if we can just put one of the other tabs first and customize it for each channel. currently, you can only order all tabs except for Post and Files. Alternatively, you can add a fixed tab as the first one you can control if it is shown or not and connect it either to a SharePoint page.

The same as the Sharepoint site concept
Björn Sighvatsson commented
This is absolutely needed. It should be an "easy-to-edit" landing page (not restricted and slow like SharePoint pages).
Perhaps even just a small customizable space at the top 1/3 of the general channel page for a team description and maybe some quick links. This would eliminate the need for too many "tabs".

A landing page would be nice and the ability to move the tabs around to prioritize them or sort for different types of Teams sites.
Also a web app that would allow you to build a simple web site inside the Team with the ability to write content and descriptions about links to documents in the Files area and to open them directly inside the Team site (OneNote is very ugly in this regard).
A way to remove the unappealing and unused (not to say "useless") general channel/tab would be great! At least a way to move that tab to the right, and make the landing tab custom!
Carl Donaldson commented
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.
