Allow customized buttons in notifications such as Delete, Mark as Read, etc
Several other email apps have the ability to delete a message from the notification screen without having to go into the app. I know you can archive but having a delete function (or a choice of which function you want) would be awesome.

Add Delete button (similar to Archive) to email item shown on pulldown notification so that I can quickly delete unnecessary email items without having to open Outlook app just to delete it.

Currently the notification on new mail only allows me to do three things (reply, archive and delete I guess). I'd like to mark mails as read because some are so short or uninteresting that I wouldn't want to open the app just to wait some time until the mail loads. Also, this is a feature in the Windows version, too! The ultimate solution to me (if Android allows such things) is to let us customize our own quick actions on mails.
Working on it over over a year... any update? O_o
It would be really nice to have Mark as Read in the drop-down notification menu instead of having to open the email app every time.

You should change archive to mark as read in the e-mail notification or at least give it as an option to configure in app settings. It is not God usability to open the app to mark them as read.
Mark an email as read from the notification panel instead of opening the app and then mark the email as read.

We should have an option to mark as read from the android notification. Currently there are option to delete, archive. By having mark as read from the notification, allows to have better usability as you do not have to open the app to do so.

The gmail app does not have this function, either. I switched from gmail hoping Outlook had a "mark as read" button in the notifications.
It's been "WORKING ON IT" for more than a year. Please let us know when will the feature be available!

Make these options customisable so that people can choose what they want to do. For instance, I want to change Archive option to Mark as read/unread so that I get choose either Mark as read/unread or Delete or Reply options on email in the lockscreen.

In the SMS-App and other messengers it is possible to perform the action "mark as read" by clicking the corresponding button within the notification.
This feature would make the app more consistent with others and also faster to use.
Allow us to select what options appear on the Outlook notification, most other email apps allow this.
If I can read the whole email or even know what it's about then I was to be able to mark it as read in the notification instead of having to go into the app.

Notification only have Archive and Remove actions.

Delete emails directly from notifications screen without the need to open the app.
Phillip Tyson commented
the latest app update has removed notification shade actions. these were useful for dealing with emails without having to wait for the app to load.
Please replace archive with flag or customize button action.
Pedro M Nunes commented
so people ask for a feature with more options other than delete or read, and Microsoft instead of adding them just completly takes them out?
get the delete button back in notifications please

Before the June update, whenever you received an email, you had the option to completely Delete or Open the email straight from the notifications tab. After said update, you can only see the email's data, but not the option to Delete them anymore
Would love to swap the 'Archive' button with a 'Mark as read' button!
Have mark as read in notification panel
