Focused Inbox for "All Accounts".
Hello - in the latest Fast Build (15.33.170315) it has the new "All Accounts" at the top. It would be nice if Focused Inbox worked here as well (similar to Outlook for iOs).
Please make this a feature it is ridiculous how I can use it on iOS but not on mac for my account which I am paying a subscription for microsoft 365. MAKE THIS FEATURE AVAILABLE TO ALL USERS AND NOT JUST BUSINESS ACCOUNTS.

I tried the fix suggested by Andrew Glennerster, and that did not work. Would be great if Microsoft would just fix this issue, which is extremely annoying, especially if you use Outlook for iOS all the time as I do.

I had this problem (Outlook 16.22 for Mac) and asked Outlook Support. They pointed me to this:
Running this (with Outlook closed) then restarting my Mac and Outlook fixed it.
1. Quit and re-launch Outlook.
2. Open this link -> https://github.com/pbowden-msft/FlightReset
3. Click "Clone or Download" -> select "Download Zip"
4. Open the Zip file
5. Right-click on "FlightReset" and then 'Open with Terminal'.

Totally agree. So disappointed that the latest update (16.22) which has redesigned the look of Outlook for Mac has once again NOT included Focused Inbox for All Accounts.
Microsoft should fix this ASAP. Please!!
this option should be implemented as soon as possible
this option should certainly be activated
This option is available and works well in the iOS version of Outlook. Ridiculous that it doesn't work in the desktop app.

This feature really should be available, it's available on the mobile apps already so why not on the desktop...

It would be handy if the shared mailboxes are also visible in "All Accounts"
Hi I would really appreciate this feature be added to my version of Outlook. Currently it does not work for me. I'm on the insider fast and no button can be seen. Hopefully released on the next update.
I could not agree more. Besides it exists on the phone

I use this feature every day on my IOS device and was so excited when I had it released to me as an early adopter... only to find out that you implemented it just for o365... so disappointing. Please make it available to all accounts like it is in Outlook for IOS. I have o365, Exchange, Google and Yahoo accounts in my Outlook and I can only use the focused inbox if I go to the inbox of my o365 account... that is a fail to me.
You guys have severely impacted my productivity by replacing clutter with focused inbox and not allowing it to go to the all accounts section. It virtually rendered my mobile device unusable until I discovered the Outlook app. In the app the Focused Inbox is included in the All accounts level.
Focused Inbox is worthless when all the junk appears in the "All Accounts Inbox". I have to run a powershelgl script every so often to force back Clutter and turn off Focused Inbox on my accounts. Until the all accounts inbox can be clear of SPAM I'll stick with clutter.
It seems ridiculous that this is available on iOS and the Windows Mail app but not in Outlook 2016 (for Windows or Mac)

This show be so simple. A simple: default view in right click would set it. Or at least, focus in the LAST opened folder. That would help .

I agree! I can use it in IOS but not on my computer. I think it should be the same on both platforms.

I have two Gmail accounts, both show Focused if you look at the Inboxes individually, but if you go to All Mail and the combined Inbox, it doesn't show Focused or Other. This feature works just fine on the iOS app, but is missing in Outlook for Mac. Of course, this is still an early release version, so maybe they'll include this in the public release.
In general, I am pleased to see Outlook for Mac and iOS improving. I have since moved on to other apps, but might switch back if they keep this up :)

When some accounts support Focused inbox but others don't, the "All Accounts" inbox doesn't show messages that would appear in the "Other" inbox. The only way to get all inbox messages to appear is to disable Focused inbox in the accounts that support it. This nullifies a very useful feature!
