Online & Offline Folder building Option in Outlook 2016
It would be great if when you build folders you could make the decision to keep them online or take them off line. I believe this would speed up synchronizing, but they would still be accessible and off the servers.
In Outlook 2016, when new folders are created in an Exchange 365 account the new folder overlaps with existing folder names when clicked on until the folder is moved somewhere else in the list. The default new folder location when creating always produces this result causing one of the folders names to be obscured until the new folder is manually moved.

I think that there is an issue with the comment by Torsten S.
That is not a comment, but a new feedback. The content does not relate to this feedback thread.

Outlook 2010 the views for connected shared mailboxes where stored even when those mailboxes were connected in online mode (when you setup the mailbox under you own mail account).
With Outlook 2013/2016 this does not work anymore. As a result, if the shared mailbox contains a large folder structure Outlook will not be store the last view of unfolded folders. Of course, you can enable the feature "Download shared folders", but if you share your mailbox with many persons folder chaos will be the result. (working double on mails, etc.).
Please re-enable in Outlook the option to save the folder view in online mode for shared mailboxes and folder.
my outlook is saying it is working offline., I want it to work online. How do I change that?
