create folder in outlook


is it possible to achieve what's in the subject?

My purpose is to create a folder, after having verified that it does not exists in the inbox.


In my case I should automatically create an Inbox subfolder giving a name coming from a preaviously saved variable.

Hi @kinobijei,


Creating folder in outlook is not supported in microsoft flow currently,

I afraid that there is no way to achieve your needs in Microsoft Flow currently.


If you would like this feature to be added in Microsoft Flow, please submit an idea to Flow Ideas Forum:

Yes, you can do it with Power Automate.

Creating Outlook folder is one of the actions supported by the Outlook REST API, so if you programme it you can get it done. Programming Outlook REST API with Power Automate is possible.
