show the amount of unread messages for each folder.

Each account's icon should have an own badge to show the number of unread mails, so I can decide if it has priority for me or not, depending on to which account the mails were sent to.

As difficult to notice unread messages that have been moved to other folders by rules, and as current badge reflects notifications that could already have been read on another device, the app should provide ways to easily see number of unread messages both when open and on the badge count.

Number of emails on Outlook icon
Ashley Salas commented
Outlook has a great feature that allows a person to create rules to presort incoming mail. This is great because it helps me know what I'm looking at before I view it, and I use this feature to presort my most important emails. Unfortunately the phone app doesn't show how many unread emails are in each folder, and consequently doesn't alert me about my important emails. Please fix this by adding a number by the folders for how many unread emails are in each folder.

widgets should show the number of unread emails on each email account. this worked perfectly on Windows phone live tiles. android showed total unread email on every widget (rather than just the relevant account) but now the unread email does not show on the widgets at all.

change folder display so that it ALWAYS shows the # of items in it, including a zero if it's empty. You can BOLD the number if it's unread emails.

Whenever I see on the home screen that I have unread emails I have to check all of my 4 accounts... over the iPhone it used to display a dot on the account with unread emails

At the inbox, show the number of unread emails at the top

it is an easy function which ios has also and allows you to have a quick overview over the number of unread mails in the inbox of your different mailaccounts
I've recently started Outlook Android app for my office emails. There are different sub-folders under Inbox which are created due to Rules.
I'm receiving notification on Outlook android only when the email is received in INBOX folder. There's no notification received for the email received in the sub-folders.
Is there any feature in Android Outlook which would allow the user to select the Folders for which notification is expected?

A true 'Dark Mode' ought to reflect and preserve the phone's system theme or at least render the background in a grey tone and not simply to render the app to display in a black and white mode. The lovely colourful rich textured system themes available from the Galaxy Store at least anyway, are ignored entirely by the current Outlook app where it simply sets it in a quasi monochrome appearance upon selecting its Dark Mode. I posit that the Outlook for Android app should allow users greater visual display setting options in setting the Outlook app to their desired overall visual theme.

count label on folders is too dark to see. should use a white font like folder name, not gray.

In Outlook.com I have created rules that email from specific senders get routed to specific folders. Those folders will indicate, by a number, how many unread emails are in those folders. Works great in Outlook.com. Using Gmail on my Android device this works great. Using the Outlook app it doesn't work well. The inbox and junk folders are fine. It seems if I haven't accessed a folder in a long time using the Outlook app, if a new unread email gets placed there no number pops up next to the folder letting me know. I have been working with Microsoft support for months on this and they're telling me the app doesn't support this feature. Not true since I have seen it myself. It just doesn't work well. So looks like I'll be going back to the Gmail app until Microsoft gets this fixed.

Home screen space is important. This would keep the focus where needed
I'm a little bit confoused about the fact that outlook can receive automatically mails every 15 minutes, but exept of an acoustic feedback not able to show that to the users eyes too. I would like to get an optical feedback on the app symbol of outlook if i get a new unreaded mail, because i often turn off the sound on my smartphone for different reasons. It could be a small counter or envelope at the corner of the app symbol. If the E-Mails are opend the counter disappears.

when I open the Outlook app, it does not indicate if there are unread emails in any of my folders, except the inbox. My incoming mail is moved to different folders based on rules setup up on my desktop. It is impractical to open each one of the 15 or more folders that I use, to see if there is unread email in them and therefore I must continue to use a browser to access my email on my phone and tablet and not the app.
The app has been approved in other ways and I would be able to use it it if this one essential feature was added.

Outlook Mobile app needs better unread mail filter to pull up unread mail from any folder not just the inbox.
James Sutton commented
having this feature would make this version of Outlook more on line with the desktop application.

Dark mode unreads are not as easy to identify as they were with the blue left border indicator line we had on Windows phone. Wish I could post my photo of that.
