How can we make Microsoft Teams better?

Add other Sharepoint document folders under Files

Please allow adding granular SharePoint document library subfolders to the Files tab. Currently, only the document library level can be added, not sub folders.

This allows adding content from related but separate SharePoint sites without having to provide the entire document library (which may contain irrelevant content to the Team)

        This would be a game-changer for us, and would definitely increase the amount of time users stayed inside Teams. In fact, if implemented well, I'm not sure anyone would collaborate outside of Teams at all.

        We need this feature !!

        Our teams would greatly benefit from working only in the Library Sub-Folders they are meant to work in, instead of browsing through the entire Library every time they need to lookup/store/edit a document.

        Would love to see this prioritized! Please upgrade from 'on the backlog'. When MSFT thinks about usability of Teams for groups of people, one-click access to a specified folder is an excellent bet. MSFT should always assume user experience with files/folders will vary. While it also falls to IT/KM/ProjectManagement teams to support users using new technology (Teams), pointing a tab directly at a specific folder is a valuable simplification for all.

        This behaviour should be natural between Teams and SharePoint. Please, you should implement this solutions assap! Our entire marketing team and more of our company are deciding NOT TO USE Teams because of this behaviour...

        I cannot believe this is an issue. It is literally preventing us from being able to use Teams.

        Also would like this out of the backlog. How is this taking so long? Teams integrates with Box better than SharePoint in this regard. That doesn't make any sense...

        Just started officially migrating to SharePoint and ran into this. Posting a comment in hopes of it getting out of the backlog.

        This is shaping up to be pretty essential to using Teams for projects in the manner we require. Seems pretty basic...

        Why not simply add your document folders from another Sharepoint site as a 'website'? So long as the library settings aren't set to classic, the view of the folder is pretty good...

        This is essential to allow us to keep the client team up to date with changes that are made to certain staff folders. At the moment we are changing files in 2 separate folders which is both time consuming and error prone.

        The fact that specific folder access is still not available is a deal breaker for our organization. Can you please provide an update on the status? Last word was Aug 2018 and it is now nearing November....
