We’re looking at two related pieces of this:
1) For OneDrive for Business, enable shared folders to be added to the root of the OneDrive folder at all (like in OneDrive Personal).
2) For OneDrive across business and personal, enable shared folders to be placed into subfolders.
We appreciate your patience; this is significant engineering work given the architecture of the products and our diverse customer base, spanning individuals to small businesses to multi-national enterprises to government agencies. We aim to address this while maintaining our industry-leading security, privacy, and compliance commitments.
Thank you for the continued feedback.
If folders are problematic then what about the ability to customise the display of the content beyond basic metadata, if we could filter by who shared it or other common tags it would be better than the dogs breakfast most of our staff are dealing with.
Alternately, make it possible to search within only the shared with me folder, the current search option seems to only allow you to search your entire OneDrive and then doesn't allow any filtering of the results provided bar file type and time period - it's insane!
Still thinking about it? Folders would be great, but correctly functioning Sort would be a good start. If I try to sort by last modified by, it's alphabetically jumbled. If I click on Name to sort by filename, all the files just disappear. Surely these are relatively basic native functions, why are they not operating?

This is something we’re looking at, no dates to share yet.
This is critical for uptake and was broadly working on some libraries last week but not now. If my teams can't edit from their synchronised folders, they'll stop using the resource altogether and go back to having saved versions in their own folders creating versioning issues.
This needs to be fixed asap!
