    I agree that this should be an option in Outlook 2016. I have used Scott S's solution mentioned below for now and it seems to work. however, I use categories and conditional formatting to organize my emails and would like to be able to pin items without flagging them.

    This would be very helpful in managing the hundreds of emails per day I receive so I don't lose one that I want to deal with later. Please bring this to outlook desktop for windows. thanks.

    This can already be done. I've been doing it for years. Click the view tab in the ribbon, then choose View Settings. In the window that appears choose "group by" and choose "flag status, descending" then go to "sort" and choose "received, descending" Now if you flag a message it will jump to the very top of your screen. You can also "collapse" and "expand" the section if they get in the way.

    1. PLEASE add this feature.
    2. WHY do you solicit feedback and then ignore it for two years?

    Lets do it. It's been a long time coming, so, carry on and *********! We will be so happy!

    This is a totally awesome option. I was able to use it for a little while and it was super helpful so important emails I need to follow up on don't get lost in the list.

    I am completely confused as to why this is not an option. At the very LEAST allow us to sort email with flagged at the top AND by date for the rest.

    How come it's 2018 already and this feature is still under consideration?

    I was about to give this idea... but as I was typing it showed me clearly that world is faster. There are so many folks who are already requesting to introduce this feature. Please implement this.
