I can't believe this still hadn't been implemented. I was using Nine mail as that supports categories, but my employer turned off mail access through 3rd party apps.
not having the option for assigning color categories defeats the purpose of being productive while working on the run. Please get this working on mobile!!!
Why isn't this part of the software?!? This is my primary mode of organizing email. Not having this on mobile is a huge issue!

There is currently no way to view categories assigned on the PC on mobile.

I have rules for automatically categorizing messages as they arrive. It would be great to see those categories denoted in the inbox list and then again in the messages. Filtering by category and assigning categories to messages would also be helpful.
Adding Categories to Android Outlook mobile. This is a crucial feature needed for organization and is superior to Folders.
Allow the user to assign categories to events when creating or editing an event in the calendar I'm the Android app.
It would we fine to have the categories from Outlook (Online and Office) available on the phone. E.g. as colored vertical bar on the right/left side of each mail in inbox view and as horizontal bar in detail view of mail. For sure it must be possible to edit and select categories for mails as well as calendar items.
The main reason why I am working with Outlook is because they have the option of the Categories it helps me a lot.
Please try to get this done asap

why Microsoft is not able or not willing to support the users in this from 2015, people are asking to have this since over 5 years ?!

In the Desktop application you can assign categories to calendar events. This doesn't translate to the moblie app which can be confusing when looking on the go.

I use categories both from web and desktop client. I have a lot automation around this the will be highly recommended that mobile client will also support them for outlook and exchange accounts.

The option to categroize my emails with the categories i created on the desktop is not possible.
categories options with colours as available in desktop version which is still good option to have it in app. i have used this feature in touchdown app.
in the shared mailbox this must-have!!
This functionality is key to my daily work in Outlook. The Outlook mobile app becomes a "view only" utility without it. Please make Categories available in Android as soon as possible!

I work with a lot of information from the same provider. If he sends me important information, I mark the different emails, but those marks tell me nothing about their content if I don't open them. If I could add customizable marks through categories, I could check the marks by product type.
Imagine that I am a construction contractor and I have to mark several customer emails. I could mark the emails and create 3 categories of marks for them. (Budgets, in process, Work completed).
The method I imagine to manage marks, is the same as in which android groups are created in the contacts application. Where the mail to be marked, would be the contact and the personalized mark, would be the group.

Folders suck, especially on mobile, please let's us catagorize!

I can see colors of my appointment categories from my Windows Desktop Outlook connected to my outlook.com account in the Outlook Calendar on Android, but I cannot edit them or assign them to new appointments!
