Schedule email and Calendar Appointment in Inbox and Calendar 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! It should include this feature in Drafts as well.
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!

Do it. Do it. Do it now. Just do it. Do the dew. Please? :-)
Obviously MS needs to do a video on this or something, to get the word out.
-Look for Quick Steps in the ribbon.
-Click the tiny arrow bottom right
-Select New and Custom.
- Add 'Create an appointment with attachment' (or text).
-Add 'Mark as Read'.
-Description "Cr Appt W Attch"
-Tool tip"Create an appointment with attachment."
-Then delete the stuff you don't ever use from the Tool tips, so this one will be near the top.
- You can do the same thing with Create a task.

Yes, I totally agree. This helps to streamline the inbox so emails can be dealt with at an appropriate time (rather than inbox becoming an unwieldy task list)

I can't live without this on my mobile device (iOS) and can't wait for it to be on the PC. Hurry up already!

The one feature that is lacking on the computer compared to Google Inbox...
This is urgently needed, both for productivity and parity with excellent Outlook for iOS app!
This is ridiculously overdue. Almost all decent mail programs have it.

Please grant an option to schedule emails to be sent at specified times. For example, if I draft an email at 9:00 pm, then I should have an option to send that email at 7:00 am if deemed necessary.

Yes please! I'm having to open my iPhone to schedule emails, it would be great if I could do the same in Outlook desktop!
Michael Åström commented
The schedule feature is awesome and I often end up working with email on my computer while using my iPhone just to schedule emails I want to handle later.
This is a GREAT idea! The functionality of the Outlook for Windows app should meet and exceed the functionality of the iPhone app. The iPhone app shouldn't have features that the Windows app doesn't! Please Microsoft, make this happen!
Absolutely - in fact, to have it work so well in mobile/tablet (in my case Android) and not be available on the desktop version, is a serious feature incompatibility. It means I'll want to do email on my tablet when really the desktop is my preference for dealing with email.
