How can we improve your Desktop Outlook 2016 experience?

Schedule email in Inbox like on iPhone Outlook app!

Add the ability to schedule/archive emails like you can in the wonderful Outlook for iPhone app! Swiping two fingers to the right or left on the email to archive or schedule wonder be amazing!

You can swipe to the side and "Schedule" an email in the Inbox to go to a Scheduled folder until the time that you have it scheduled for when it shows up again in your Inbox at the time that you need to deal with it!

This is THE KILLER feature that would put Outlook far above all the rest!

        Please add this snooze / schedule feature.

        A key implementation point though is to make it synchronise with exchange so when you schedule it will also complete on your device.

        With email being utilised more and more being able to triage and focus on important items would be a great feature!

        +1 Definitely need this on the web and in the Desktop Outlook. Until then, I'll continue with Inbox by Google

        +1. After using Gmail/Google Apps for the past 6 years, the lack of this feature in Outlook 2016 is rather disappointing.

        Please do this! I could do this in Gmail using an app, but I was shocked that Outlook is so behind Google's features.

        Option / Rule Defer Until sending email until business hours. So email sent during non working hours would sit in outbox till next business hour. So a do not send until button, (specify next business day, a day, a date, or time period) So the rule needs to be able to run when Outlook is not running so as not to start an email chain afterhours if you answered on your iPhone.

        Add the ability to schedule a recurring e-mail (reminder) to go out on a specified date and time to a given distribution list

        Yes, agreed. Scheduled Inbox is _the reason_ I decided to try Mobile Outlook on iOS. I love how I have a unified email and calendar app for 5 accounts on my phone; having that on my Mac would be great as well.

        Thank you.

        Being able to "Schedule" emails (like on the Android and IOS versions of Outlook) is a powerful feature that should be standard across all platforms -- having this available on desktop and OWA/web versions of Outlook would definitely boost productivity.

        "Schedule" the most intuitive and seamless time management feature of an inbox.

        Come on Microsoft!
        This is a really good feature for Outlook. Read on Phone and edit or answer it later in Outlook or OWA.
