Enable colored mailbox folders
MS Outlook 2013: I have many (sub-)folders in my mailbox and I already use the function "Show in favorites". But there are too many favorites and i scroll all the time in my POB to find the folder with mails that I need actually.
My idea of improvement:
Enable to set colors for the (sub-)folders in the mailbox, because the human brain links words with colors easier. So when I search e.g. the folder "Verbesserungsvorschläge", I don't need to search the written folder by eye. No, I can search by the color, that I defined for this folder. I mean, that the background around the letters of the foldername should have a color.
Yes please enable assigning color to folders or (!) exclamation to the folder.
To be honest, we've been asking for this for like 10 years!!!
Please listen to us.
PLEEEEEASE UPDATE TO ALLOW COLOUR CODING ON FOLDERS!
IT WOULD MAKE MY WORLD SO MUCH EASIER <3
I agree it is very frustrating when are looking at the same color folders. Color scheming would be so much more efficient and is a needed function in outlook. Please make it happen Microsoft. Other applications are doing better and I love your products.
I agree.. color coding would help GREATLY!!!!!!

thought about this many times especially when you have many sub folders to look at.

As an organized person,
I would like to have the ability to color the OItlook mail folders or tree nodes (left pane),
So I can quickly find a folder set when the folder structure is too long.
I would like to use blue for management and red for important messages I want to archive/move from my inbox. Delete and Junk Box would probably have a less noticeable color.
Yes! As a new user of Outlook 2016 it is a challenge to distinguish between all my personal folders, color coding would improve my productivity immensely!
Couldn't agree more - especially for use at work when you have multiple folders and sub folders. Seems to be in high demand for years now, what is going to be done?
I have 6 email accounts with similar folders so is tricky to workout which account you are looking at when scrolling through the folders list so this would be invaluable for me too !
Yes, color-coding of folders would be incredibly helpful and would seem to be a no brainer. Microsoft, can you break your silence on this issue? What are the reasons for not doing it?
Colors in folders and subfolders!
I handle several mailboxes in my workday. We recently updated to Outlook 2016 & this job is now a nightmare. My productivity is way down as I cannot distinguish between the mailboxes easily. Using Categories is a waste of time and I have extensively used this option. What I need is a quick colour change between my mailboxes so I can drop my emails from one box to the other easily and efficiently. Please give us this option.

With a lot of folders and subfolders, it is difficult to find one.
It would be a great relief if I could assign individual colors to folders
It must be very complicated for them, Microsoft is no longer what it was
Google would do better in one day

Keep us customers happy and loyal - make the color folders available today - or at least announce when you expect to launch this function!
Wholeheartedly Agree! Color Coding of Folders is Badly Needed!
Please listen to us Microsoft. We have been asking for this colour folder functionality for nearly 10 years!!
