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.

If anyone is interested or renaming or removing the Files tab , please vote here: https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/17731678-make-it-possible-to-remove-and-or-rename-the-defau. They might reopen it if there are enough new votes.
We started using Teams to make more effective and integral use of our Office 365 platform—unbelievable that basic SharePoint integration is so lacking in the application!!! We've resorted to sharing files individually in the Team files directory, which has led to problems with version control. Can't imagine this needs 2 years to develop and implement.
Matt Stratton commented
Agree with the community on this one. It is starting to pollute what once was a well organized SharePoint site and our team is pulling the plug on using Teams until this is resolved.

What is the status of creating this functionality? It's a very basic need and should be priorized!
I need this to fix the situation of renaming a channel, which breaks the link to SharePoint because the URL for the channel does not get updated with the new name. So content disappears and is only available in SharePoint
Brandon Meyers commented
This basic feature is my only roadblock to a full MS Teams and Sharepoint deployment.
Wow, basic functionalities missing.
is this still on the backlog? its been nearly a year since the last update.
This is extremely important and should not be so difficult to implement! Please make it a priority, I can't believe it's been postponed for YEARS!

Last update....August 2018. Way to listen to the customer voice Microsoft.....
A: Can we add a folder directly in Teams?
B: No sorry, I can display sharepoint in Teams at the folder level, but not just the folder.
A: But you want us all to use Teams - its easier for us to just go into Sharepoint like we normally do.
B: Yep, cant disagree there.
C: How's the Teams user adoption going?
B: Well, we cant do basic folder mapping so everyone still just uses SharePoint
Noah Linssen commented
please add this feature, how hard can it be to actually link to a subfolder instead of going to the homedir?
please kinldy add this, it's unbelievable this is not available out of the box!
Kate Graham commented
Can a developer please tell us when this will be implemented? This is a critical need.
I do not understand how we could successfully integrate teams without the ability to point to a specific sharepoint folder. Giving each project its own library would scatter our files and make our system unusable. This should have been a feature from the start.

C'Mon guys! This is going on two years old?
How am I supposed to create project specific channels and only include the assets needed for the project?
I can link directly to a OneNote - which is a folder, in the sub-directory I want to link too, in the same Document Library as the folder
It´s a basic Feature.
How come this is still not implemented?
AKsel Mjeldheim commented
This is an important feature for us as we already, like many others, have project doc library with individual project folders that we want to access directly. This is slowing down our uptake of MS Teams in our organisation. At least I think we are owed an update about this feature. It has been almost a year. Will this feature ever be implemented?
Gabriel Martins commented
So, will this go forward?
It doesn't make any sense since we have different permissions for folders on the same library.
Worst of all is when someone doesn't have permission to see one folder, that same person wont see any folder at all on the TAB.
Andrew Krueger commented
Warren can you let us know where this sits in the backlog? It's been 14 months.
