Hide the 'Files' Tab
Hide the 'Files' Tab, to link a Team directly to an existing SharePoint document library
Its confusing to end users that a new SharePoint document library is created as part of the Team when they simply need access to the existing SharePoint document libraries in place
This setting should be available on a per Teams basis
fully agree to this request!
SharePoint has so many additional features which might never get made available in MS Teams and we are a crowd of not-so-dummy users who want to use the SP feature (authorizations, versioning, additional fields/columns,open in native app, etc).
So I have added the respective underlying SP site as a separate tab called "files via SP" but I can't remove the default "files" tab (or at least move it out to the far right/hide it).
This leads to people clicking on the default "files" tab and then being frustrated that the clicked document doesn't open in the native app and that the additional fields can't be maintained without first moving over to SP either way.
I'm almost about asking my users to ignore Teams and just use SP instead... is that the intent?
Please create a setting so Files Tab can be hidden! It's a weakness not to be able to hide it when you already have Sharepoint libraries you want to add. Why would any user like an empty Files tab taking up space and add confusion.
