How can we improve the Outlook.com mobile webpage beta?

Beta version should consider: 1.folder editing options and settings, can't even organize my folders

    Outlook.com targets mainly a business audience, we all have a large and ever expanding number of folders. Why on earth should outlook.com expand ALL folders and subfolders by default? IT makes navigating our folder structure borderline impossible.
    I like Outlook.com but this is becoming a deal breaker.

    Have some way to add, edit, folders from your cell phone, tablets etc

    Ik krijg melding dat mijn folder opgemaakt is met verkeerd karakter. Ik kan dit alleen niet aanpassen op mijn telefoon. Je kan geen mappen aanpassen of verwijderen op je telefoon.

    I need an explanation of how to add a folder, and how to move my folders - when I use the drop down menu, clicking on "add folder" it's all good, but the new folder is never saved, so it is very frustrating

    I have outlook through MSN.com. I had folders from emails when on my desktop. No longer have desktop and only use iPad and iPhone. Everything transferred fine except can’t create “new folder” and don’t know how to store old folders in iCloud. Can you help

    Tessa, in the meantime, you could rename them as "Z" "Z1" "Z2" "Z3" etc. So atleast they would be at the bottom of the list and out of sight.

    I did NOT mean to flag this as inappropriate.... was trying to view the comments.

    Create new folders on a mobile device. Not everyone has a laptop or desktop.

    Need to be able to create folders on the app. Can only do this on laptop/desktop currently.

    I NEED the ability to delete a folder that I created in the past but no longer need or want. Even on desktop, i can't delete one of mine.
    Outlook support gave me instructions on how to do this, including multiple ways to do it depending on which version of Outlook I was using.
    Not a single one of them applied to my outlook layout.
    Now I'm stuck seeing a folder with my ex's name on it every time I look at my emails menu.

    I am unable to add a new folder using my Android phone. Please provide instructions to do so. Thank you.

    Should be able to Create New Folders while Using Your Phone when logged into your account and also be able to Permanently Block emails

  • Amber Lewis commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    There should be an option to long press out side swipe to modify a folder to rename or delete. I have empty folders I can't delete

  • Margaret P commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Outlook.com or at least my desktop version does not have the option to delete or make new folders. This is a horrible beta

    Allow pepole to add/delete/move/rename folders. Remember choices for emails

    I would like to be able to add/delete/move/rename folders, while using a mobile device. I am not able to use a computer to change them. All I have are iOS devices and when I can’t add folders to organize it’s frustrating.

    I would like to be able to add/delete/move/rename folders, while using a mobile device. I am not always able to use a computer to change them.

    Also, when I mark emails as someone I trust & show images & move them to a specific folder. I would like to have it remember my choices.

    Like to be able to choose more than one choice, when asked about "category", "what is the issue" & so on. People usually have more than one reason for contacting.

    Thank you!
