    I hope that this issue will be covered by the move to a common "back end" for Outlook across all OSs and clients, because having to compile my own HTML just so I can get an acceptably formatted signature is suboptimal (to put it diplomatically). Business users totally need this feature!

    Introduce a virtual folder which shows all mails in all (synced) folders from an account, like Nine does (http://docs.9folders.com/articles/25463-navigation-drawers-email) and as can be created using Search Folders in MS Outlook for Windows.

    This is a great "reverse filter" for when a user has MS Exchange Rules that move incoming mails with matching criteria into subfolders: this way, all mails can be seen at a glance when needed, but each folder can be viewed (and notified) separately when not needed.

    Using mobile devices for mail triage is very convenient, and using swipe actions for mail triage even more so. However power users need more than the choice of two options (set as "Archive" and "Delete" as default). If I want to "Mark read/unread", that's a long press, then click on the "three dots", then click on "Mark read/unread" - one click too many. Similarly, "Move to folder": long press, then "three dots", then "Move to folder", then select the folder - one click too many. If we could set e.g. 2 swipe options left & 2 swipe options right, then I could remove one click for each (as well as time/accuracy of hand/eye coordination). Therefore I would appreciate more granularity in customising swipe actions. Many thanks in advance!

    I have already set up Rules on Exchange to move mails into the right folders. Focused Inbox's machine learning can only examine the actions that I make, not the intentions behind the decisions that lead to the actions. This can lead to "mislearning", which then wastes a lot of time in retraining the algorithm. So I would prefer not to use Focused Inbox for work mails, however I also want to customise notifications on a folder by folder basis (e.g. I don't want a notification for "FYI" mails). Therefore I would appreciate more granularity in setting notifications for specific folders under the inbox. Many thanks in advance!

    Quick Replies (i.e. customisable standard responses to mails, like "Got it, thanks!") really are a must for a productive workflow for power users. If the goal of Outlook for Android is a "simple UI for simple users", perhaps showing Quick Replies can be toggled on/off deeper in Settings? Please add, with my thanks in advance!

    AutoText (Quick Parts) really is a must for a power user's productive workflow, as well as being an integral component of Outlook for Windows. If the goal of Outlook for Android is a "simple UI for simple users", perhaps AutoText integration can be toggled on/off deeper in Settings, or allow 3rd party apps like TextExpander / Texpand as the text editor within the body of the mail? Please add, with my thanks in advance!
