Integrate SharePoint metadata and views with Windows Explorer
I still monitor this suggestion ..
.. and once a month without fail someone is commenting saying how fundamental and necessary this is. Please reconsider as this is a major roadblock in our adoption and causes us to have to go against Microsoft best practice and use folders in a SharePoint library to organise our data so we can sync locally.

If we are to be able to implement Sharepoint in our small but global organization, our travelling people working offline should be able to use the same url structure and views in Windows Explorer as they can when working in the browser online. This needs to be addressed if SharePoint is to effectively replace a company server.

Our business users have refused to use SharePoint unless we can provide them with this functionality whether via SharePoint or buy some app that bridges the functionality gap.
