Update Git "Source Template" in Get Source Changes Step to execute a "git sparse-checkout" instead of a plain git command to checkout a repo

Hello, we are wondering if there is a way we can use the Git "Source Template" to execute a "git sparse-checkout" instead of a plain git command to checkout a repo. This is in the 'Get Source Changes' step where its being used. We have a Git repo that users add folders to, the folder names are their user name. We need a way to checkout only the users folder in our build process, not the entire repo with all users folders.
