4.9. Customize the Sidebar

In Spark, you can adjust the left sidebar to quickly access the folders you use the most. They include pins, sent, attachments, archive, etc.

The sidebar has customizable top and bottom sections. You can add a maximum of five folders to the top section while the bottom section is able to contain an unlimited number of folders.


Between the top and bottom sections, you can see the folders which can’t be deleted from the sidebar. They include Inbox, Pins, Drafts, Sent, Archive, and Trash. You can move some of them to either the top or bottom section.

At the very bottom of the sidebar, you can see your email accounts that are currently added to Spark. Tap the account to view its folders like Inbox, Sent, Drafts, etc. This section is not customizable.


Adding a folder

Tap at the top left, go to Settings > Personalization. Here you can see the folders currently displayed on your sidebar.

Tap Add new. On the next screen, choose the folder you wish to add.


Choose the accounts you want to use with the selected folder. For example, you may want to see the pinned emails only for your work account. Tap Add after selecting the accounts.

You can reorder your folders by holding and dragging them. The folders you added appear on the sidebar.

Deleting a folder

Open Settings > Personalization, choose the folder and swipe to delete it. Alternatively, you can tap Edit at the top right and touch the minus icon near the folder.
