Is it planned to allow us to re-arrange or edit all tabs in a channel?

I would like to create some specific channels that don't start with the conversation and file tabs.

39 Replies
Hey Scott!! Today we support reordering, renaming, and deleting all tabs besides the Conversations and Files tab. Can you share with me the kind of channels you're creating where you don't want Conversations and Files pinned at the start? I'd love to understand the scenario here!
Hi Mark. One example would be to use the General channel or create a separate Announcements channel where only one person would be providing information (for example in a OneNote or Wiki tab).

It would designated for reading important updates and not intended for all Team members to respond. I think moving the conversation tab and having another tab as the default would allow us to keep relevant information easily visible for a longer time frame.
I know this can also be achieved by a using another tab on the General or any channel, but my idea is to highlight important information without a conversation pushing that information down or pulling attention away from it.

I've had similar asks from my users. @Scott Winn would the ability to "pin" conversations as a Team Owner so they either never scroll completely off the screen, or are always displayed initially even if there has been no recent activity fit your needs? Or do you need something more in depth?

@David Rosenthal, this would be a great feature! I would still like to have the option to edit or rearrange all of the tabs, though.

I would like to make Files the first tab, not Conversations. 

We have a similar requirement: we would like to rearrange the Conversations and Files tabs so that the Wiki App Tab is the fist (default) one when sombody enter a "channel".

Going even further, It would be great if could remove both the Conversations and Files tabs so that a Channel has only Wiki Application tabs.

Agree! Need to be able to re-order tabs in a channel, such as moving wiki to the first tab place.

@Mark Rubinstein I was searching for a similar request I'm getting from users. The ability to move (drag/drop) tabs from one Channel to another. Use case for this, is as work evolves/expands some content in that existing Channel may need to be moved to a more relevant or new Channel. Is this possible?

@David Rosenthal thanks for sharing the link. Sadly, it looks like the pin feature is on backlog :(

I would like to have Planner as my first tab.  I'm not using Conversations so would rather have the default be my list of tasks.

We desperately need to open up automatically to the Files page, not the conversation page. Any way to make this as an option?


Somewhere along this thread we have gotten away from the original subject and request to rearrange (reorder) all of the Tabs.  Another use case is when Wiki is used as the core reference, Conversations and Files are necessary yet secondary.   Hope this feature gets prioritized to be released soon.

Another Scenario would be that we are using a Sharepoint Document Library for multiple teams to store docs and we use the "Website" Tab to place a link to the documents specific to each team. This way all docs are in a single location, but can still be seen in all the different Teams.

 

We don't actually use the "Files" Tab

Same scenario for us I have our SP library on a tab which I want to use rather than files. Also want to have planner as first tab. 

In our scenario we make use of a hierarchy of Concepts and Use Cases. These are all Word documents. We want to make a tab from the concept document and use this as a table of contents. This document contains an description and links to all the use case documents.

And if we're talking about arrangement of Tabs, can we have the ability to return to the previously active tab, rather than always coming back to conversation.  For example, I'm in a Team, in a Planner tab.  I go off to do something else in another Team for a while and then when I return to my original team, I'm presented with the Conversations Tab.  I then need to locate and click on the Planner tab.   I'm sure not everyone will want this option (or not for every Team) so maybe it can be an option in Settings to "return to previous tab" or "Always return to Default tab".

My customers want to land on the "files" tab for some channels and random tabs for other channels. Just want the flexibility as everyone tries to move the 1st three tabs in different order so instead of having to request just those OOTB initial 3 tabs, why not make "ALL" tabs with the ability to reorder and many not delete but maybe hide "wiki" tab is not desired or never used.

I think this would be a great asset! Some of my channels are used mostly for file sharing as we all work in the same office so the chat/ conversations are not as important for us. 

Guys, it's still not happening. I have channels for which I'd like to remove the Conversation and Files tabs.

No, and there's no updates on this as well..So if it's coming it's probably gonna take a while

Hey everyone! Thanks for sharing your feedback! I recommend filing a request and your thoughts on our UserVoice site, which our feature teams use to triage feedback and help prioritize feature work. Thanks!

Daar Mark,
Don’t you think we already did?

Dear Mark,
Don’t you think we already did?
Greetz, earthling

Voted for the ideas I've found on the issue. Thanks for the suggestion, Mark. Strange that it's not the top idea.

Nope, The "Private Channels idea" rules them all!!

But that's for channels, not for tabs within the channels. Am I missing something?

No,  I meant the top voted idea on uservoice. They don't relate! Sorry for the confusion

Got it :) It definitely should be this idea instead of the private channels.

So, is it working now?

 

It's been a year!!

 

MS teams, what are you doing? You better work now!! 

 

I'd like to move the default tabs to the last!!!

The conversation and files tab cannot be moved yet

Any chance this is going to happen soon?  Really need the ability to reorder all tabs and to change the default landing tab for each channel.  Seems like such an easy fix.  

Yeah, no!

I don’t think this will be doable within the near future!

Please vote in the uservoice for this:

@Mark Rubinstein Our facility needs to be able to have the Files tab be the first thing the user sees when using Teams, instead of Conversations.  Our users will be using the Files more than the Conversations tab.  This is critical to the successful movement of our site usage of Teams.

@Mark Rubinstein I have a project's channel holds files for for video production books. I'd like files tab 1st as that is whole purpose of this channel

We would like to be able to have our channel home page displayed first, it would have channel maintainers and contact information, anyone know if this is possible to be the first page opened when selecting a channel?

 

@Mark Rubinstein Is there a reason such a simple feature like this would be locked to users of MS Teams?

Hi all, I really do not understand why any limitations exist in tabs rearrangement.

In our case we want to use Teams for our Digital Group Resourcing and Tasks, and basically, we want to position what is most important to be at first tab which is in this case "Tasks". However, at the moment I could move it at max one spot left of the Wiki tab, between Files and Wiki.@Gary Fouts
