New Folder -- default to Root
Idea shared by kevind - August 21, 2018 at 2:44 PM
Under Consideration
Currently, when you create a New Folder, the parent folder defaults to the one that's currently selected, which is typically Inbox.
Idea:  Default the parent to -Root- if you're on one of the system folders (Inbox, Deleted Items, Drafts, etc.).
Users shouldn't be creating subfolders under system folders. If they really want to, make them manually change it, not the other way around.

Yep, a seemingly simple idea, but very useful!
Hi Kevin,
You've got my upvote for this request. Adding subfolders to the Inbox may cause unexpected syncing behavior when using an email client, so I can see the logic in making users manually select that option. I've forwarded this suggestion to the development team and will post any updates I hear.
