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.Anonymous commented
This can't be serious - looks horrible having these folders on the left side in the Explorer Window.
I understand this is a "significant engineering effort", but I was always thinking that at Microsoft work a significant number of programmers.
Hoping you will find a way to make this possible soon - especially considering this worked already in the past - we were able to reproduce it with old OneDrifve versions. But staying with these versions brings a bunch of other problems...Anonymous commented
Short comment on that one: We had here a long discussion with Premier Support. This one is actually not a feature request, but a bug fix.
This worked already in the past. We got Aware of it, when testing syncing SharePoint libraries with OneDrive:
If you stored synced SharePoint libraries with Onedrive, you were able to move them in nested Folders in the past. This way you could sort your synced libraries in OneDrive by site collection.
Not possible anymore after a Microsoft update. So syncing libraries from different site collections gets a mess, if you have several libraries in your site Collections.
Therefore, the described issue is even more relevant as it affects also SharePoint Usability and not only OneDrive sharing.
Considering there are already more than 4000 votes and it is a bug, not a (real) feature request, I hope that Micrsoft takes care for that issue soon.

We announced differential sync at the SharePoint Conference in May. We’ve already rolled it out to our OneDrive personal users and plan to roll it out to the rest of our users by end of this year.
