Multi swipe options
When you swipe left or right on a mail message it would be useful if you could have various options, selected via Settings.
Add “create task” as an option for swipe gestures on emails. Currently custom swipe gestures cannot create a task from an email, and requires multiple taps to do it instead

It would be very helpful if the email ‘swipe’ function could include ‘add to MS To-Do list’. This way I could easily keep track of the tasks and emails I need to respond to.
Swipe options should have more to chose from. For instance, swipe right you can chose to mark (flag) as important or chose to delete. As of now you can only pick one
Swipe right options for the personal folders and currently it works only swipe left but both swipe options works for Inbox folder.
Put multiple options within the swipe rather than just left and right. Left could have two to three options as could right.
Yes, it would be MUCH more time efficient to be able to swipe for 2 options, e.g. left swipe to archive OR flag, or right swipe for delete (similar to eg. WhatsApp)
Possibility to Choose action every time when you wish email to the left or to the right

It would be helpful to add a Flag to the left-swipe-delete. Can add a flag in 1 motion, instead of 2. Thx.

On iOS Native email there is an option to select “More” for more action instead of just having to action on each swipe.
Can you please add the ability to have more swipe options, going from the current two to a total of four swipes? Adding a short and long swipe in both directions would allow this, as some other e-mail apps have done. I find that it would make Outlook more convenient to use, as some options are buried behind several taps. Being able to choose two more quick actions to add to the swipes would be monumental for me.
This is one of the few features that keep me from wanting to keep Outlook as my default e-mail app. Please add this feature - it would mean so much to me and my productivity!
It would be helpful to have 2 swipe options left and right depending upon how far you swipe. For example, swipe 1/2 way left for Archive but continue all the way left for Delete. On the right you could have as an example Snooze then Unread. User to select options.
There should be an option to create an appointment or meeting directly from the mailbox by swiping right on a message. The message content and subject should then be copied.

Messages used to have an option of deleting or moving or adding a flag when swiping. Now there is only one option. Of course I need to delete and move messages which leaves no option to flag them. Very frustrating!
On the inbox screen.
A Flag+Archive action in one swipe would be the perfect complement to working with ToDo. With this option inbox zero can be quickly achieved and flagged+archived emails could the be acted upon in the the ToDo app at a more appropriate time.
Many thanks for the great work!

It would be great if we could get back the old behaviour of marking an mail as read, as soon as its selected - or at least after a configurable time.
Now one always needs to select another mail and then agin the original mail in order to mark it as read.
Annoying since if this is not done, you end up with a lot of unread mails after shifting them
Please add additional options per slide left or right. So if we slide left, we see More, Mark as Read, and Delete or slide right we we see more options. I am now converting to Outlook for iOS after waiting about 2 years for it to develop. But we need more slide options on the either the left or right slide.
Like the native iOS mail app there’s a two finger gesture available for multi-selection of mails. It’s a interesting feature that can be added on outlook for iOS.
manage multiple actions with swipe (like in ios mail)
Basically the same behaviour as is in the iOS Mail app.
