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!

        I agree that I would like to use this feature in the desktop Outlook app, which exists in the Outlook iOS app.

        It took 18 months from the time MS said Teams would support external/guest users. I sure hope this doesn't take that long. Please MS, don't ignore the users in this thread.

        Today I updated Microsoft and was expecting to find this feature. Unfortunately, it is not included. When Microsoft?

        Please add, this is a really useful productivity feature - and not having it on desktop is rather limiting its impact.

        THIS FEATURE IS THE BEST THINK MICROSOFT HAS EVER INVENTED! And y'all, I'm including the Zune!

        Can't wait for it to roll out in Outlook desktop version too!

        Switched from iPhone to Android, the lack of this feature is really annoying

        Would also be good in the Internet Portal of Outlook, - homail / live accounts and 365 accounts.

        Essential...shows how the software developers play to the *** appeal of the portable device...lame!

        I have used Baydin's Boomerang product to do this for at least a year, got upgraded to Outlook 2016 only to find out it doesn't support that version. Argh, I am lost without it...

        I actually created a custom view so I can flag messages for follow up and they will disappear until they are due. I did this to simulate Gmail's Inbox and didn't even know the function was built into the mobile Outlook client. I was super disappointed when I found it MS was smart enough to give us the feature but not for their primary client!

        +1. It seems odd that it exists on the app and most competiiton has this as a standard these days but the desktop client is still lagging.

        Please please please bring this to life.

        This is the feature to add. MS likely thinks this will lead users away from desktop Outlook. In reality the lack of the feature draws me away. I want to keep using desktop but the lack of this feature just keeps me off it more and more.
        And here we are, years after MS acquired this feature and still ... nothing.

      • Edwin commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        My god it took me ages to find out that it's not available in the desktop version... WHY NOT.
        Please add this feature asap.
