As in iOS mail it could be very useful to have the possibility to manage multiple mails, write one or more mails at the same time and reducing them to the footer in order to read or write another mail. Without this feature it is very difficult move prof iOS mailing tool.
The iOS mail app has a feature that lets you drag down the current message you're viewing/editing and places it as a bar on the bottom so you can look through other messages in your inbox. Could that feature be possible on the outlook app as well?

I noticed that the windows ten features an on-screen writing app. Is there one in iOS for iPads and iPhones?

Totally agree! This is a kry feature not available yet...

Yes. This would be awesome

This is a huge annoyance for me! I waste so much time everyday saving emails as draft and then searching for it to continue writing just to look at another message for 3 seconds!
Ugh this needs to gain traction! I can't believe more people don't complain about this...

While i am typing an email , I Should be able to drag the active draft to the bottom of the screen. This is useful if I want to refer to another mail while typing in a new one. Don't have to save draft and open it again .. Thanks
It would be great to be able to see more than one email at once when drafting a new email as so I can cut and paste from previous emails.

If you switch apps while writing an email, e.g. To copy a URL from a browser, outlook on iPad loses the draft.
This is a serious flaw in my opinion as good support for multitasking is already a serious deficiency of iOS

There are a lot of times when I need to briefly put an email on hold while I source information from another email. It would be convenient if we could swipe the draft down to put it on hold while we navigate the ap to mailbox or sent messages, whatever it may be, then quickly swipe the draft back up

I fully agree. I miss this so much.
An option to minimize the current draft and look at your emails or other inboxes

I can't check my calendar while composing emails. Need to be able to switch back and forth. Multi-tasking here is a must!
Jaime Franco commented
Yes! I need this!
Every time I'm responding to an email and I get a phone call, my draft just disappears into thin air. I go back to my email drafts or any other folder and it's not anywhere. I literally had to re type every contact and body of the email about 6 times in an hour due to the fact that I get tons of calls from my employees and send email all day long all from a phone. How can we fix this?

Is there a function that allow having two draft emails open at once? I was writing one, opened new one to copy txt across and the original disappeared into cyberspace. The office version allows this
The ability to park a draft just like the stock iOS mail client!

Spark is going to be your guy's biggest competitor. I like outlook but you need to match some of sparks features in order to keep me using it.
1) Minimizing Drafts: Instead of saving drafts away into a folder, have the option to minimize them at the bottom of the screen in order to get back to them faster.
2) Quick Replies: A few buttons that send automatic quick replies. Should have presets like "thank you", but also the ability to add custom replies
3) Swipe Signatures: Have multiple signatures and be able to "swipe" through the one you want to add to the bottom of the email
4) Widgets: Widgets in the top corner of the screen such as: Package Tracking (filter emails down to those regarding packages), iTunes Purchases, Amazon Purchases, and Recently Read emails.
Spark by Readdle has some REALLY great features, but still has some quirks. If you guys could bring these features to Outlook, you could crush the competition.

It would be nice to have a feature to minimize drafts while composing if you need to search for another email or file to reference. The draft email(s) would transition to the bottom of the screen and remain in view while you search. A few similar apps have this feature if you need to reference them (I.e. Spark, Apple Mail and Confidential CC Corp.)
This eliminates the need to save the draft and then go back to the drafts folder just to pick up where you left off.

Sometimes when composing an email you may need to refer to a different message or attachment in you inbox. A great feature would be to slide the composing message to the right to then be able to review messages on the left. Once you have the detail you need, including copying and pasting, you can slide the composing message back into view and continue.
