Root Folder by tenant for Multitenant Installations

Currently you can specify a custom folder for a tenant and it shows on the menu bar, but it is still referenced under Team Content as a sub-folder. We have the scenario where we have our base content that needs to be deployed on a per tenant basis, since all clients may not be on the same version of our application/content. By having each tenant have their own root folder, that can be referenced with a standard pattern across tenants would be ideal for both our integrations within our applications and for when importing content into a multitenant environment.

We provide content to our clients and currently there isn't a way to effectively change the location of where the content is imported to without breaking the reports. If you could associate the import with a tenant, then the default path should go to their root, not the Team Content root, thus not breaking the package references in reports.

For our integrations, having the path be relative to their root would also help when a report is being called by its path and the paths are the same for all tenants, except the root folder.
