Long/Short Swipe Options
Daniel Hagen commented
A recent update seems to have disabled the ability to swipe multiple items at once. Now you have to wait for the swipe animation to finish before swiping again.

Using mobile devices for mail triage is very convenient, and using swipe actions for mail triage even more so. However power users need more than the choice of two options (set as "Archive" and "Delete" as default). If I want to "Mark read/unread", that's a long press, then click on the "three dots", then click on "Mark read/unread" - one click too many. Similarly, "Move to folder": long press, then "three dots", then "Move to folder", then select the folder - one click too many. If we could set e.g. 2 swipe options left & 2 swipe options right, then I could remove one click for each (as well as time/accuracy of hand/eye coordination). Therefore I would appreciate more granularity in customising swipe actions. Many thanks in advance!
Currently swipe action only allows one action on swipe. It will be more convenient if there are multiple options upon a swipe, e.g. upon right swipe, users may select mark as read, flag or move to another folder.

On swipe reply option needs to be added. Currently in one thread it's mentioned to be completed but i see its not there. I wanted to attch screen shot but you don't have even option in suggestions to attach file. You may add that also one of suggestions from my side?
please can you implement the swipe feature on the lines of boxer email client as it allows more than two abilities to perform an action which I find to be very useful. say long swipe for delete and short swipe for archive . these actions can be chosen.

short swipe & long swipe from each side, so that there are 4 swipe options (makes one hand use much easier since you won't have to tap on options all the way on the top of the screen)
Swipe to mark as unread
short and long swipe from right and left. delete, move to specific folder, flag, read

Be able to pin emails by swiping them and also have a separate folder/view within the app so pinned emails can be saved/viewed on a separate view from the normal inbox folders.

I want outlook to use four different kind of swipe.
Small Swipe and long Swipe from both the ends.
these will help us to accomodate more options.
This functionality is already there in the mail client in iOS if you wanna see the reference.

just like Boxer

Have a long swipe and a short swipe action so you get 4 swipe options instead of 2. Spark has done this and is a really good feature
Simon Taylor commented
i get so much unwanted mail i need to be able to quickly swipe to delete
Liedtke, Emil commented
there should be multiple options in a swipe like other email apps....customized for only 2 isn't enough.
Jackie Stewart commented
and I have deleted draft emails by mistake on numerous occasions! The swipe options should be consistent across all types of folders please.
Daryl Fubler commented
Ie. Short and long Swipe would allow you to to delete or schedule.
Johannes Hindahl commented
It would be nice to be able to create more sophisticated rules for the swiping, like the quick actions in the windows outlook allow.
For example I need an option to swipe and then the mail gets moved to a specific folder, instead of the generic one where I have to chose a folder first.
This should be freely configurable with a rules engine.
Abel Gerritse commented
Please add a two stage swipe in both directions to the inbox, for a total of 4 swipes instead of the current 2. This will allow the user to instantly have Archive, delete, Schedule and Move to other inbox available for instance.
(or any other 4 quick actions users would want to map to them)
Spark by Readdle on iOS does this really well, VMmare Boxer does as well.
This is currently not possible in the app but would fit the UI for outlook.
