Read outlook folders under "Search Folders" folder

Hi all!

Are there any ways to read the folder under “Search Folders” folder? I’ve tried using “Search Folders/Overdue” for the MailFolder under Input but got the error message “The specified folder does not exist”

Thanks in advance for any help!

Hi Natapong!

Thanks for the prompt reply. I’ve just changed it to “Search Folders\Overdue” but still got the same error.

Sorry for my mistake in previous reply.

Incase you want to get email from [Outlook Search folder]
I would suggest you use filter options in get mail activities.
Example
“[From]=‘Natapong’”

You can refer below article

Thanks for the reply!

Actually i would like to have a folder that filters Follow up due date that are past today’s date & those that needs attention today. I don’t think there’s a filter option in the get mail activities regarding this. Do let me know if you have any solution regarding this. Thank you!

@CCQ, You can directly filter the email subject string using “Get outlook email” activity.

@CCQ

Can you show me your search folder criteria of [Overdue] folder

*please hide your confidential information

Try following Path:
Inbox\Search Folders\Overdue

If you have a chance to check in Outlook:go to Folder > Folder Properties and check the path to the folder there
