Separate categories pane in outlook 2016
Add a Categories Pane to Outlook. I'm a big user of categories and it would be great to allow for easily selecting and adding categories to Outlook items. The current process of right-clicking and then assigning 1-by-1 or selecting "All Categories" and then choosing multiple selections are both cumbersome (same thing when accessing from the ribbon). A pane would ease my current pain.
Please! it's impossible when we have a category with long description, not always can be "blue" or "red" I have something like
try to read that on a tiny box that can be resize! It's nearly impossible !
Was just going to make this same suggestion. I have to re-open the drop-down and it would save a click to be able to pick multiple before closing. Rarely are my emails just one category.
I don't understand why there is no longer a list of categories on the sidebar, underneath Inbox, etc., or at least the option to view such a list.
I know that I can filter categories by clicking on the category title next to an email. But I have some categories that I use very infrequently. They are not immediately visible at the top of my inbox, but nevertheless, sometimes I want to filter by that rare category title, without having to scroll back through months of email to find one message with that category, so I can click on it. Honestly, I don't even always remember what categories I have.
A list is convenient, clear, and obvious, and the space it used to occupy is currently blank anyway. Is there no way to turn that list back on?
Add a second category set to be separtely selected and applied. I would like to mix two types of categories (1. General subject/contact and 2. Where to perform a task from a category (at work, at home...). Selection would be very much easier- For example I could select "Work for boss" and "at home" wihtout having to go through one of the categories and then look for the item which also has the second category. A matrix view would also be great for this feature.
