Location based Outlook filtering rules

New Contributor

Dear community, 

 

I'm using extensive rule-based email filtering to remove all emails from my inbox that does not require my immediate attention. 

 

With Covid, one new stream of emails are that of pre-entry forms to get access to my office or other places. I would like to create a rule that moves the email and mark it as read based on my location. 

In other words, if I'm in the city where my office is: put the email in my inbox, else, put it in another folder and mark it as read. 

Is there any way to create a filtering rule based on my current location? 

 

Thanks in advance,

There is no way to do that automatically but you could create the rule and turn it on and off. If you use a different computer / Outlook desktop profile, the rule could be 'for this computer only' and would only run when you use that profile.

Hi @DonRL,

as Diana said, there is no way to do that natively, but in case you run your Outlook against Exchange online  (Office 365), you can create a Power Automate flow that will do what you want.

Google for "Power Automate" and "location trigger" to start. 

I  did not think of that!

 

Thanks! @Victor Ivanidze
