Per account rules for focused inbox
I'd like to be able to set focused by account. I love the focused feature on my work emails as I get loads of useless emails. For my personal emails it just means an extra click as I like to see them all!

If an email is flagged, there should be a setting where that can be turned on/off where it is automatically moved to the focused inbox.
Ability to sort items into other/focused within the app
Need a feature of whitelist of domain so that all email from it are shown in focused.
There is a EC platform company, Rakuten, which all order emails come with the common domain but funny seller address like abs4567 and all those are shown in other.

I would like to be able to control what goes to my focused inbox. Right now only a couple important things go to it. That option to change which inbox it goes to would be nice!

Currently it’s all or nothing approach to using the focused inbox feature.
As a user of multiple mail accounts, including Office 365 Business, I find it frustrating to have this be setup like this.
Please add a per account setting for focused inbox.

I work at a university and some of my students emails come from the LMS software. I’d like to add that domain name to get all of their emails into my Focused box.

The focused inbox feature should be on a per account basis. For example I want it on for my work email but off for my gmail.

Important emails keep getting filtered to "other"

Th Focused and Other Inbox is a great feature but I think it’s missing something. I want to have separate settings for each of my accounts. A focused and Other Inbox for 2 accounts and just one Inbox for my work email.

I like my focused inbox but I would love it better if I knew how to make other e-mails go straight to the focused inbox, and get rid of others that are going to it. If that’s a feature I haven’t figured it out...

Allow emails to be designated as focused by domain name as opposed to (or in addition to) designating them by full email address.
This allows one to send emails from a listserv to the focused inbox.
I receive almost ALL (30/40 emails a day) through the focused tab, at all hours of the day and night and cannot switch it off - I’m considering deleting the app due to this
I need certain "no-reply" e-mails to go to my focused inbox. These include e-blast e-mails from my son's school, and mass/junk e-mails from my 2 favorite coffee shops. How can I do this???
Move Facebook to other inbox
Add capability to 'People focused' inbox

1) Focussed: Did I opt in for this. Two in-boxes is frustrating.
2) If something is sent to junk but is actually deemed as 'acceptable' and responded to and/or moved to inbox etc. then subsequent messages from same "...@com" (or whatever) should not be sent to junk. Maybe encourage users to make more use of rules and wizards?
Th Focussed Inbox on mac/iOS has major disadvantage in that the emails become lost in the system and not discoverable
Paul McCarthy commented
I use the focused/other inbox in outlook IOS and have been proceeding with training it as to what should remain in "focused" and what should go into "other". And I also have my alert to sound only for focused email.
As you know, the default for a previously unknown sender email address is to put it into "Focused".
But in the past few months I've been getting a lot of spam/junk (about weight loss) - sometimes dozens per day. They are all coming from different individual email addresses and therefore coming directly into the focused inbox and alerting me. I.e: Since the spammers are doing their spam using countless individual email addresses, they all go into the focused inbox.
So it occurred to me that this problems would not occur if I could make the default "Other", and then of course recommence the training as to what should go into "Focused".
So my suggestion is: Could you provide a way of setting the default to "Other".
I think it's up to me to decide what emails I want to see and not an automated system which always gets it wrong. I hate the feature and I feel like it should be an option and not something that's forced upon us.
