In Outlook desktop I can use the Categories (colours and descriptions) and I can create "Smart Folders" that grouped messages for category.
In OWA I can assign a category, I can manage the categories, BUT I can't find how I can see messages grouped for categories.
Someone can explain me? Thanks

uhm... the business version of Outlook for Mac had this feature, in OWA there's the possibility to assign a category and then?
Why in OWA I can assign categories?
What is their function?

Yes, but OWA does not recognize the categories assigned in Outlook (desktop).
It is not possible to assign categories in OWA, categories in Outlook !!!!

I have several messages with different categories in Outlook for Mac: I can't see them in OWA.
I have assigned a category to a message in OWA: I didn't see it in Outlook for Mac.

Thank you for the information, but I am working on Outlook 2016 and not with the importation!
OK, I have tried it, yesterday, with Office Insider Fast v. 15.28 and today with the 15.29
I have to open a ticket in my tenant or I have to write via Outlook with a report of the problem ??!!!

I have followed instrucions at
BUT without success.
I have tried to find in the OWA site the messages with category:="_Vari Category", no results.
In Outlook for Mac I have tried to filter for category "Blue Category", no results.
I am waiting for a technical support.

This worked for me, but without equal sign after colon. I typed the following into the O365 search
category:"New Project Ideas"
making sure the Category Name was an exact string match.
