    Politely request the option to Disable rather than remove an account and subsequently all of the associated credentials.

    As an end user I wish to be able to disable an account temporarily on an as needed basis without removing it entirely. This feature should meet the following criteria:

    1.) Disabling the account removes visibility of the account from the user interface entirely except within the account management UI where it can also be re-enabled.

    2.) Disabling the account will prevent all notifications for that account. Badges, banners, pop ups, history, and lock screen notifications fall into this expectation.

    3.) Disabling the account can be done manually.

    4.) Disabling the account can also be done on a automatic user defined schedule such as a specific date and time range as well as re-occurring type of settings.

    5.) After automatic disabling the time range has expired, the account becomes automatically re-enabled.

    Purpose and value of this request is the end user may not wish to have particular account(s) active during certain time periods such as work related email accounts on weekends. I personally prefer not to be disturbed by constant work emails over the weekend and currently my only option is to remove the account entirely. Disabling notifications doesn’t actually disable badges for that specific account and all of the emails are still visible in the UI.
