Step 7. Select the deleted mailbox or we can also select the Archive option (that is to say that when sliding we can not only delete, but also archive).
Step 8. We must confirm that the deleted mailbox takes us to the trash if we want to delete emails, or that it takes us to Archive if, on the contrary, our desire is to archive emails.
When we configure this option to slide to Archive instead of to delete, we are saying that that mail be archived in the “Archived” section of it. This section can be found together with others like (received, sent, highlighted, etc.)
If we want to eliminate these configurations for any reason, either because we did not want to have done that or because we were wrong we should touch “More” and there will be a box with the option to delete.
Step 9. There is less left! In this step, we must touch in the account section at the top of the screen or slide from the left edge of the screen to return to the previous screen.
Step 10. Finally we will have to touch on ” Done “.
If all the steps have been done correctly, now in our Gmail app, we can swipe in an email, either to delete it, or to archive it, depending on the option we have previously chosen.
If we want to have both options, it is also possible to keep both at the same time. Finally, it is recommended for the correct functioning of both the app and these functions, that is always up to date in terms of updates to the app.
