I have 100s of nested folders under inbox and I have to scroll through all of them just to get to drafts, sent, junk etc. it would be great if I could tap on a minus or arrow which will collapse the inbox folder structure.
Dar la opcion de eliminar carpetas que ya no se utilicen.
I think folders should be able to be able to moved in the ios app, aswell as being able to create a subfolder on the app as needed. I may be on my own here, but I think this would definitely make emails easier.
Allow collapsing of all folders!! I have to scroll down hundreds of folders/sub-folders to find the one I need. Plus their order is not synchronised throughout my outlook account but arranged a to z!! I’m honestly baffled that this hasn’t been fixed ages ag
I feature that I would find really helpful is the ability to edit my email inbox folder names in the app. This way I could do everything I needed in one place instead of having to switch to a laptop.
It would be very helpful if we were able to delete folders on an iPad. I don't understand why this feature isn't available.

I wanted to create new folders to order my emails but I didn’t manage to do it.
I have been searching for the answers for "how to collapse folders in the said bar" for more than 3 years, and got "no" from everywhere.
With the capacity of my outlook mailbox (99GB), it is impossible to manage mails without folders (and countless subfolders). The fact that in mobile outlook app all the folders are by default expanded make the folder completely useless for me (and all my collogues).

We need the ability to delete or edit folders using mobile app. Currently my email is not syncing from desktop to mobile, i have logged out of my account, reset my account, deleted and redownloaded the app.. nothing works. I have many duplicate and unwanted folders on my mobile app that don't show up on the desktop because i've already deleted them from the desktop version.. my folders on mobile are very cluttered and i want to clean them up. Why wont this sync? Why can't i delete folders on my phone? This seems like a very simple task.
A big flaw
Use the right click button to help with more features. It’s very difficult to delete an old folder on an ipad.
Allow for all the sub folders to be condensed and clicked on when needed
I use folders a lot in the desktop app and it’s frustrating to have to scroll down through all of the open folder to find what I want.
This makes using the mobile app more cumbersome.

I’ve used Outlook on my home desktop PC for decades. I have 30+ custom Folders to save my important emails in. I just moved to an iPhone after Microsoft put my numerous Nokia Lumia 635 & 950 in hospice. I only did it when I learned about this free Outlook for iOS APP.
But, now that I found out through your Support how to ADD a Folder, that solved one deficiency that I thought this APP had. There’s a problem though. I added a Folder and it was nowhere to be found on my computer’s Outlook 2016. Apparently the Folder was added to the very top and not in alphabetical order like all of the other Folders are displayed.
So, please add the 3 features.
Option to edit, delete, and create new folders from the app

This shouldn’t be a new idea. The fact Outlook iOS can’t “see” contacts grouped in folders on your computer is ridiculous. So we are forced to dump hundreds of organized contacts in “Contacts” (and if you try to maintain folders on desktop the joy of keeping TWO contacts updated).
Of course we really just need to carry an old fashioned roledex since two way sync with iOS messages and phone anyway. #late90’stech
