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 request is still on the backlog.
I'm Holger from Germany and I'm working for a company with 3000 employees.
Please add the functionality as described!
Without this simple functionality, it is not possible to colaborate with Sharepoint and Teams in an effective way.
Every file must be copied an pasted, you have to maintain double files in different versions everywhere.

The lack of this functionality makes Teams and SharePoint virtually useless together, considering that Microsoft is an Enterprise company it floors me that this wasn't part of the initial Teams design spec. If I create a new channel I should be able to link it to an existing SharePoint subfolder, as it stands I need to have my Team members avoid the "Files" portion of Teams altogether or I can run two copies of the same files and live in version history ****

After more than 3 years, is this request still in the backlog?
I thought Teams was developed in an Agile mode ...
Has this still not been fixed?
Egnyte can do it....
... fix it or loose customers.
Andi Waterston commented
Yep please do this, I'd love this too, it would solve a world of pain and extra setup that shouldn't really be necessary
Jon Lind commented
Please do this. It's keeping me from convincing my coworkers how great Teams is because they don't want to have to go back and reload all of the files and structure that they already created.

I even tried to do a hyperlink to the specific folder and posting it as a comment. Still, sends me to the Library instead of the specific folder.Absolutely ridiculous that this still hasnt been fixed

@jesse Walter - I think you are missing the point. The current functionality only allows the addition of whole document libraries to the files section, we want to be able to include at the "folder" level. We have been using teams for 3 and a half years across multiple projects and have many, many teams. Consider the scenario of delivering a new hospital system to a client, and in the document library there are multiple folders for "Inpatients", "Outpatients", "Radiology" etc. Now repeat this team for each new client. Now consider a project that is focusing specifically on Radiology, imagine the benefit for a new project/team too be able to add just the Radiology related folders from across 10 different previous projects.

Adding Documents and Folders in SharePoint
Open the 'Shared Documents' library by clicking its name in the left navigation pane or it's title if embedded in a page.
Open the 'Shared Documents' library.
Click the 'Documents' tab at the top of the screen.
In the ribbon, click the 'New Folder' icon.
Type in your folder name and then click 'Save'.
Hope this information is helpful to you
This has been a HUGE hurdle for our operations. And it's simple to map out! Please knock this one out this week - It'll take you 2 hrs
Totally agree! It would allow us to seemlessly work from our company document library without duplication in the files tab for each team.
When will this be done? It would greatly help us integrate important files in one SharePoint site into different Teams.
If we do need to use just a doc library... if members of that Team don't have permissions to resources within that library would it be a work around....?

This is a core feature requirement and should not be on the backlog after 3-4 years!
please privide this functionality, it is urgently needed

This would be such a great feature. We are doing cross-team collaborations, and we have different teams and channels that access specific shared subfolders in SharePoint. Getting only the root folder does not make sense. It would be very valuable and appreciated if we can get this feature.
May I have an update on the progress for implementing this functinality? It's been two years, it would be good to have this feature.
Just to be clear "And I really don't want to create a site for every project so I can sync, because that will be a mess in the file by creating a large flat structure that doesn't take advantage of the power of the Sharepoint and Windows Explorer."
This feature will not address that problem. Adding a shared folder from a different team/site to the files section in teams does NOT physically move it, so if you were to have team site A, and then add 1 folder from team b, c, d and e to the files tab on team A, you would see all of those in one view, but to synch them you would still need to synch 5 different sites/folders
this feature would be so useful. Would actually allow Teams to become the go-to place for files as my Teams would have the exact correct folder synced. No more missing files, no more duplicates.
It is not appropriate for my Teams channels to have access to the root folder, as my structure is Root (site) folder-Client folder-project folder in sharepoint, and Team-Channel in teams. So I don't want a user in a channel to have to hunt through the whole root folder to find their project folder.
And I really don't want to create a site for every project so I can sync, because that will be a mess in the file by creating a large flat structure that doesn't take advantage of the power of the Sharepoint and Windows Explorer.
When is this likely to be possible?

I agree with thios feature request - we just want to share on sub folder from our library NOT the whole library. Please fix!
