Notification for new mails in folders and subfolders other than inbox as well as easier switching into folders.
Kalin Vitkov commented
Advanced users sort incoming emails into various folders. Currently, one would see if new emails have arrived only by opening Outlook and going to the folder. It would be much more convenient to show all upon arrival as notification. This was one of the main features for Nitrodesk's discountinued mail client...

I move some incoming mails automatically with a rule in custom folders. When I get a new email, I don't get notified. I only see the index on the right side of the folder. It will be great, when outlook notifies the new email in the same way as it does it with the inbox.

other apps such as Nine Will allow you to receive email notifications when new email arrives in subfolders. I have to manually check the folders frequently throughout the day to look for new mail using this app. super annoying.

How is this not a thing in 2021? Looking for an alternative app if Outlook won't add this.

Only the inbox syncs and delivers notifications. I use a large number of rules to organize my inbox. The ability to have all folders from my email sync and deliver notifications would help improve my productivity.

Currently in Outlook you do not receive notifications for subfolders. Seems obsurd that this is not an option in 2021.

Currently when the user creates a new folder,he 3x03cts any emails that come into this folder will be notified to the user,this feature is not there and should be added
allow me to simply control notifications for certain emails, folders, and subfolders for the app.

why isn't this a thing. I miss emails from my boss and coworkers because I have them in separate folders and I only get notifications from "inbox" not from sub folders
This is 2021 and enabling/disabling notifications for certain folders is more like a necessity.
Not having this feature results in a lot of productivity loss.
Kindly prioritize this feature.

When I get a notification of a new email message on my Android phone, I tap it to read the full email. This brings me to the Outlook app showing my inbox, but the email I was notified about is not displayed there. Not in the Focused inbox, nor Other, nor any sub-folder. It's like I'm looking at an old snapshot of my inbox before the message arrived. I have to log on via desktop or wait an hour to actually read my mail, which is ridiculous.

At the moment the Outlook app on mobile only gives notifications whenever an email arrives at the Inbox. Even when you set Favorites, that only works if the email goes to the Inbox, so if you have Rules to move emails to certain folders you will never get notified on your mobile. Either change the notifications to allow for certain folders to trigger a new email notification, or if Favorites are still to be used then allow for the other folders to get notifications as well when receiving an email marked from a Favorite person.

In the Outlook app new emails folders other than inbox are not shown unless you go in a particular folder and wait for it to update.

Upvoted this - our company just foisted this horrible Outlook application upon us for our corporate Exchange Emails, and I receive far too many emails to sort by hand to keep things organized, and now I have to wear my laptop as a personal accessory to get my email since the mobile stays DEAD SILENT from any emails coming into a folder besides the Inbox.
Fix this. Like. . . 5 YEARS ago when it was first brought to your attention in other forums. . . . For the love of all that is Peaceful and Harmonious. . . . FIX THIS
the same here . very strange situation from Microsoft.
Still not a feature in 2021, the mobile app is pathetic.
