Provide a feature to move email to Focused or Other inbox based on subject, recipient or based on importance in Microsoft Outlook 2016
Provide a feature to move email messages to Focused or Other inbox based on subject of emails, addressed to recipient or based on high or low importance in Microsoft Outlook 2016 for easier sorting of emails.
If I could just get notifications from @yammer.com to go to Other inbox automatically, that would be great.
I realize there is a conundrum.
When you right click and choose "Always move to Other" , you could be thinking "Always move THIS KIND OF MESSAGE to Other" rather than "Always move MESSAGES FROM THIS SPECIFIC SENDER".
But I'm sure a compromise could be found.
With Clutter, the AI learned based on lots of factors (subject line, content, sender, etc.). With Focused/Other, my only option is to tell it to send everything /from a certain sender/ to the Other mailbox. This is not detailed enough for a rule.

Please add this feature. I can not believe it is not there yet.
Please allow rules to be set up for subject contains....I don't want everything from a sender in other - just certain things!
Gavin Means commented
Yes, Please! An action for rules should be to make "Focused" or "Other"
Absolutely need this. I have internal, corporate emails going into my "Other" inbox and missing things that need to be addressed. Give us the option through rules at least to chose parameters that will always put the messages in our Focused Inbox

YES PLEASE! I get important emails from facebook, but most of them are junk. I want to be able to keep the important ones (by subject) in the focused box and the rest can be read later.
I have subscribed Yammer notifications and as each notification has been sent from unique email address instead of a common email address, my focused inbox every now and then get overloaded about Yammer stuff. I'd like to get te yammer notifications moved directly to Other inbox but it's not possible because there is no Rule to move messages to Other inbox . In addition to that I cannot count on "always move to Other inbox " command as Yammer sends the notifications always from unique mail address.
So please implement a rule action to move messages between Focused / Other inbox.

And can you please PAHLEEZE enable search folders for the Web client. You're LITERALLY taking years off my life by not enabling this.
I'm looking for a way to send ALL mail to Other unless it comes from a Safe Senders list of about 200 email addresses.
I want the ability to import .csv file to overwrite the Safe Senders list.
I could try to accomplish this via rules, but 1) no way to create rules that mark Always move to Focus/Other, 2) that is a ton of rules to maintain, 3) I like the easy click between Focus/Other.

the focused inbox really needs a way to handle subject, most of our company notifications come from firstname.lastname@example.org which include things like password expiration warnings (useful) and corporate news (not immediately useful). i want to make sure things like password expiration always show up in my focused inbox. there is already an in-depth rule engine, why not add another action like 'Move to Focused", seems trivial....
That's why so many people, including me, tried to get Clutter reinstated - but Microsoft ignored us. Focused/Other was and still is, a bad idea. What you are doing now is nibbling around the edges trying to make Focused/Other work more like Clutter did. Forget it. Switch off Focused/Other, create your own Clutter Folder, set up your own rules to move unimportant stuff straight into it. It takes about 10 seconds to add any new source of newsletters, useful advertising or other clutter to the rules list. It doesn't make any wrong decisions because you are fully in control. It's perfect.
Ideally I'd like full rule control over which messages go to Other and which go to Focused. Barring that, I'd like to at least be able to shift things to Other based on a partial subject line or if I'm in the CC line. Clutter seemed better able to differentiate between things that were important and those that were clutter.
Outlook allows two inboxes; the focused and the other. It would be nice to have option to make as many as you like. I receive over 30 emails from one company all at the same time. I would like to be able to program this emails to come in their own inbox, so they would not flood the rest of my inboxes.
Agree the ability to allow Focused and Other Inbox as a destination when creating a Rule would be beneficial. I find it very unintuitive that messages where I’m in the CC line aren’t automatically put in Other, so would welcome the ability to create a rule to do so.

In Jira or Confluence, I want to know (i.e. see it in Focused) when I'm mentioned in a comment. The subject will contain "[...] mentioned you on [...]". The rest of the messages can go to Other.
I think that by default, any message that is caught by any rule should be skipped over by the "focused/other" engine.
T. Hines commented
This feature is really important because it's sending email alerts based on whether an email is in focused. I'm getting too many alerts for emails that are subscription-based and not relevant.
I need to be able to write a rule to move emails to focused based on criteria including specific text inside the subject line. Just having it work on sender is not good enough i.e. I only want a few specific emails from that sender (Jira).

there are several general email addresses in my company that are monitored by various people. Each of us wants to get the email, but it always winds up in the other box. need a way to sort based on who addressed to.
