How can I do a bulk action on many conversations?

Missive has a multi-swipe feature. When you swipe a conversation, you can move your finger up or down as well to select multiple conversations. You can only select conversations that are right next to the one you swiped first, but once you get used to it, you can clear your inbox fast! Here’s a GIF showing the behavior; it was recorded on a desktop to show the cursor acting as a finger. On desktop, it works by holding down the Shift key and dragging conversations to swipe.

This is helpful for:

  • Marking multiple emails as read
  • Archiving multiple emails
  • Starring multiple emails
  • Trashing multiple emails
  • etc.
