    Rules are boring... And so is the wizard that creates and edits them. I think it's time for an update where instead of looking through a long list of criteria for the target, then actions for the target, and then exceptions for the target we break procedure and go straight to writing our rules the way we understand them. This could also potentially be a more efficient way to potentially organize them figuring out which arguments are putting these many emails into a category or wrong appointments on calendar.

    A wise wizard that understands rules would help us better enforce them by letting us choose a satisfaction/confidence score after the rules have processed several times. It might even get smarter with AI analysis to suggest methods based on trends of our user inputs and our flow of email.

    Ultimately in conclusion i think everyone may want to personally break rules because they don't properly apply to them even though they're guilty for designing them. And maybe we can discover a better procedure than a rule. Maybe filter flags instead of putting them in a separate folder we're never going to check. Use rules not to just help us be more efficient with email; but guide us on how to be in an intuitive way.

    I have to log an e-mail for correspondence, issue, documentation purposes, etc. several times and there are several different platforms I may have to upload these as files to. Unfortunately we don't have a CRM add-in which I know would benefit in this purpose but then again it feels like this could be a convenient action for Quick Steps (also include Save all attachments would be nice).

    It would be great if we could use this as an automation to be applied quick step to "Search Folders" feature or simply allow "Search Folders" to be added to rules and it runs on a schedule/when new search criteria is found.
