Wanted to provide an update here: this is something we’re planning on doing, but don’t have a timeframe to share yet
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.Ben Van Zijl commented
This is really a basic feature, and this is indeed taking to long.
I'm considering to swith to Google Drive because of this since they do offer this option for years now
