Outlook for Mac

Allow smart folders in Favorites

The new Favorites category in the sidebar is nice, but should also allow Smart Folders to be added as Favorites. I want a few of my smart folders at the top of my sidebar. As do others...there are at least two other feature requests on this page asking to allow the Smart Folders section to be re-ordered higher in the sidebar so they are more easily accessible. Consider adding all those votes up to count for this request, because this request can help solve that problem too.

        man its irritating that some of the key features are not available on the Mac version of offices, across ALL OF THE APPS THAT WE MAC USER ARE PAYING FOR THE SAME F$%^&* PRICE AS WINDOWS USER

        Will be great to get this feature as Christmas present for 2018!

        Adding to this already massive heap...Why is a simple filter like "Unread Messages" with a count of messages not already part of the Mac version!? Overlooking such a seemingly simple (and essential) feature is mind-boggling!?

        would love to know the geek answer (logical) for why this isn't already a feature in the OS X Version.

        Just another reason on why to stop using microsoft products with OSX.

        Something I can easily do with OSX mail, just gets ignored in the outlook for mac community.....

        Hurry up with this Microsoft, surely you can mimic the smart folder feature from Mac to Outlook, it's essential. They need to be an easily findable place, not linked to individual email addresses and buried.

        I used Saved Searches all the time and would like to be able to mark each as a Favourite. This would move them to the top of the sidebar list and easier to access.

        Please implement this for Mac users; Windows users have been able to add Search Folders to their Favorites since Outlook 2003! How many upvotes do you need for resources to be allocated to this enhancement?

        Funny,

        This function is available very long on Windows Outlook

        ... but on Mac impossible to developing by Microsoft ;)

        This is such a whiff. The point of making Smaert mailboxes is to surface particular messages. But if the list is at the absolute bottom of my mailbox list it is-by definition- BURIED. which makes it mostly useless. Since I can't refer to it easily I might as well just do a search.
