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.
It makes it very hard to maintain 2 separate places for storage as opposed having all files/folders under one tree.
And because symlinks break the OneDrive, it doesn't leave any good workarounds for users to use.
And every one of my users hates that they have places in different places.
We can't wait until this feature is implemented.
We agree 100% with the suggestion and are exploring ways to enable this. This represents a significant amount of engineering work hence we don’t have a schedule to share yet.
This is an important issue because OneDrive business is frequently sharing files with other OneDrive users who have Personal subscription but they can't access files that are supposed to be essentially one file storage system.
That means that people have to open each invitation link manually as opposed to just adding it to their OneDrive account.
This is a critical issue that needs to be addressed very soon.
This is an essential feature to have. Currently OneDrive is split into two: items you own and items shared with me. It should instead have all files/folders under a single tree, or provide an option to make it so.
It makes the user experience especially difficult.
