    When making folders, it is unclear in which folder the new one will be placed.

    Please make this clearer.

    Perhaps add a step asking which folder you want the folder created in.

    So how come this is still “under review” rather than complete? It’s not even down as being worked on!

    I guess it is self explanatory but. ow I access my e mail in my phone 90% of the time I cannot delete old folders . I know I can delete the messages but not the folder

    I contacted Support to ask how I might be able to rename a folder and also how I might be able to delete a folder. This is the response from Support:-

    I'm sorry, but currently, deleting/renaming a folder from within the app is not a feature yet. You may suggest this to our team. Just tap Settings -> Help & Feedback -> Suggest a feature. You can delete/rename folders from your webmail and our app will mirror the changes as well :).

    May I suggest that you include this as a feature within the Outlook app, please?

    Today, when adding a folder in Outlook for IOS, it places it at the highest folder level and does not provide an option to add a new folder as a sub to another higher order folder.

    I would like to delete a whole folder. I seeing a folder I deleted years ago in the outlook app on my phone but I cannot see the folder when I login to outlook on my laptop.
    Please let me know

    Please a the option or function to collapse folders to the side, to show/hide folders contained within other folders.

    I currently have multiple folders within a root folder. Incredibly inconvenient to handle in the app.

    I have hundreds maybe thousands of folders and subfolders. On my desktop this is no problem if I want to go to a particular folder but on my iPad or iPhone it is really hard work. Any chance of having a go to a folder dialog? Thank you.
