Swipe to a defined folder

I Think if I have an swipe option to move an e-mail to an especific folder, this will be amazing. I have a folder named "action required" so, an swipe to left I Would put directly in this folder.

    When I move an email I’d like to have the option to send it where other emails like it were sent. For example a receipt I always send it to the receipts folder.

    If you move email from a certain person to a specific sender Yahoo mail remembers this and next time when you try to move emails from same sender it suggests you to move in to same folder which you choose last time but in this outlook we have to scroll and find folder as i have too many folders and it would be helpful if you add this feature it will save alot of time.
    Many thanks

    Suggesting adding to have the ability to swip and Move to a specific folder, in order to avoid having to search for it

    It would be great to have the app learn when I move emails to a folder to quickly move emails and not select a folder every time like the iOS email app does.

    Your move to folder button takes like 3 steps to do. It would be better to just swipe it right to move or allow us to choose what swiping does.

    In Windows Outlook I have a simple action that will move an email to a specific folder.
    I use that all the time.
    I’d like a similar function.
    A way that I can use a single tap to Move an e-mail to a specific folder.

    Outlook should have an option to set a default mail folder (not Inbox) to be visible when the app is opened. This way my attention will be on the most important emails making me more productive.

    Allow you to define the actions of swipes. For instance instead of archiving on a swipe I want to move an email to a predefined folder. In my case, I want to swipe the emails to my “2018” folder for archiving. Not the “archive” folder

    There should be an option to specify a default folder when swiping a mail to move it to a folder. This was a time saving feature in the Windows Phone version.

    I usually swipe to move a mail after it's read. 99% of the time I move mail to the same "read" folder. On iPhone, I have to manually select the same target folder every time, and this is wasted time.

    Swipe to archive but would be helpful to have an feature to move messages easily too?

    Ability to move to a specific folder on menu
    Add move to menu for left or right options

    Be able to swipe left and move to a mailbox within and automatically recognize sender like available in Apple mail.

    I would like to be able to swipe to move the email into a folder that I've preselected other than archive. Right now I can swipe to move it into a folder but have to do one more step - select a folder. This would let me swipe my emails into my DONE folder and get me to zero inbox.
