Allow collapsing of folders in Move to Folder
I have a lot of email folders. When I move an email to folder, I have to scroll through a lot of folders to find the correct destination. It would be great if I could collapse all or expand all folders that I want to look at. Also a type-in feature to find a folder by name would be equally useful!
This should be an easy fix!

What is the problem with adding a feature that collapses folders?

I agree with everyone else that it's ridiculous that you can't collapse folders in the app.
As most people have multiple folders with multiple subfolders it’s quit hard to find the folder if everything is expanded.
I’ve Googled a lot but can’t find anything but people are screaming for such.
This is extremely important as every time I open outlook app, I see a big list of folder list and I can’t collapse them so that I can only focus on important ones
Please just provide the ability to collapse subfolders so it is easier to browse to the correct folder. Other apps (Nine for example) have that option and you can actually type and search for a folder name to browse to. I’ll pay one million pesos for this.
It’s frustrating that I keep seeing updates for this app, hoping that this will get fixed, and yet it doesn’t; Microsoft keep asking me if I’m satisfied, and I’m not - once in a while I come back here and see that I’ve already ‘checked’ this item, and there are new comments from similarly frustrated customers, but no progress - very disappointing. I’d expect much better from Microsoft, on what is a key product for their brand (one I use extensively every day).
I have 100+ email folders and sub folders which works great on desktop. The mobile version does not allow to minimize folders taking forever to scroll and sort.
When an email is moved, the folders should expand after a short period of time. With folders always expanded it is very uncomfortable to find where to move an email.

This needs to happen. It is a nightmare to have to scroll down to get to what you want. Such an easy solution....Collapse all/Expand all option on folders
Come on Microsoft!!
I have approximately 50 main folders and many sub folders from the mains. Desperately need a collapse feature. It takes me forever to scroll down through every dub folder. Should be an easy fix. Its an Outlook staple feature.
For everybody who sorts his mails in many different task or person related folders (like me for work) it’s **** to have all folders and subfolders permanently opened up. Please add folder closing and opening to make it cleaner!
Pls pls, thx thx
Bitte Ordner und Unterordner ausbreit- und zusammenklappbar machen! Jeder der seine Mails in vielen Ordnern und Unterordnern sortiert (ich für die Arbeit zb) bekommt sonst ne Riesen Liste in der App!
Aufm Windows Laptop im Programm und im Browser funktioniert’s doch auch!
Bitte, bitte, danke danke
Definitely necessary. Can’t use the app for anything but reading new email without it.
Its one of those Google things where you just shake your head and wonder if there not intentionally screwing with users out of some twisted form of spite. The side column nested folders are not collapsable in the app version. Really? I have never seen that in any other app. Been a SW Eng for 25 yrs. Downright strange and kind of pathetic. No way to raise the issue with output-only Google. If you somehow did, they would ignore it.
I keep a lot of seperate sub folders under titled main folders. On desktop the sub folders can be collapsed and then expanded when I want to drill into them. On iPhone all folders are expanded making it quite difficult to scroll through them all to find the one that I need.

would be nice to be able to collapse folder structures for the mobile app like you can do with the desktop app. I find myself have to scroll through all of the folders to find emails at times.
Really? 3 years on that?

I have to scroll thru my full list of sub folders (I.e. 2019 sub category folders) befor I get to my 2020 folders).
Should be able to collapse
Does anyone have an email solution for expand/collapse folders for iOS? I'm not finding one? I don't think it's a Microsoft/Outlook issue. I think Apple is holding out.
