Create custom home page design in Microsoft Teams

Last Modified: 2020-11-20
Hi there. Our company uses Microsoft Teams which is tied into Sharepoint which we use to store and share files. We would like it so that when a staff member logs in Teams that they first see this customized home page (almost like a web page look and feel) with videos, link, information. Is this possible? And is it possible to set one of these page templates up from within Sharepoint and tie that into Teams and make that our home page: https://lookbook.microsoft.com/#templates

If this is possible, what are the steps to accomplish this?

Teams is not SharePoint. Users can add tabs to a team and add apps to the launcher but you can't change the interface any more than you can change the Skype client interface

My understanding is that Teams utilizes Sharepoint. Okay I found this tutorial --> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j4GlfSpZsi0

Thanks Jeff, I see your point now. Yes, I was referring to creating a design on a tab page not so much the Teams overall interface. I'm going to try out the steps in that video I posted above but thanks for your comments!

Just so you know, you can add a Sharepoint page as a Tab. Any SharePoint page
