Outlook for Android

support pinned emails in the Outlook app. I can pin emails in OWA but the app doesn't show them as pinned (making them difficult to find).

Show pinned emails at the top, or in a special tab in the app. And let me pin or unpin emails from the app.

    I want both the ability to see currently pinned emails at the top in the app as well as the ability to pin new emails from the app.

    include the option to pin emails on top like in outlook.com in addition to just flagging them

    the function is available on PC and i use it extensively to keep track of important emails. however the outlook does have this function to pin emails, or more importantly, at least be able to see the pinned emails easily at the top of inbox

    I can pin emails, and on the desktop site they stay at the top of my email page. it would be great to have this feature on the mobile app too.

    Very important to have this functionality in both iOS and Android Outlook apps. Defeats the whole purpose of having it one the web app if not present across other platforms. Requesting to add this functionality as soon as possible.

    Sigh it's been months and still not added... a lot of other apps already supporting this.

    You can flag an email, then turn on the filter to show only flagged items. That's what I do to find my important emails. Or I change them to unread and filter only the unread emails

    Yes, I would add: it's quite strange that this option of pinning is available in outlook web app, but not in app for android (and in my case for iPhone), and same deal for Outlook on my computer. The inconsistency makes the pinning relatively useless. And it's a great feature.

    like others said, defeats the purpose of having them on the web. it is even more needed on the mobile given the usual urgency of checking an old pinned email on the phone.

  • Kuo Jeff commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    the web version is able to pin the emails to the top of the list but it'll not work on the app version.

    This is why I loathe Outlook with a passion. Issues like this and many many others. VERY cross-platform unfriendly. Why would they NOT have this functionality??

  • c. leigh commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Oh my gosh I cannot believe I cannot access my pinned emails in app. Will go through and mark them some other way but it is really ridiculous.

  • Emily Meens commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    You can flag and unflag in both the app and web interface but pinning is non existent in the app. Please add both to the app.

    in outlook online i can pin an email and it stays at the top, the app should honour this and allow me to do it as well

  • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    It's ridiculous that this feature is not available on the app. If I pin an email, it means it's important enough that I need to be able to find it quickly or often. A pinned email on the website that means no access AT ALL to the most important email when using the app. So stupid!
