I have recently upgraded to an S20 from an S7. On the S7 and on my Samsung Tab A, I am able to delete and archive emails directly from the notifications, which is really useful. But on the S20, the options are Archive and Reply and I can't find out how/where to change this. I have set swipe options in the Gmail app to be Delete and Archive, how do I get these carried through to the notifications?

 

Many thanks

Hmm I didn't know you could do this straight from notifications. So if you get a notification you can just delete it right then without even having to open the Gmail app? I'll have to look into this.

Yup, you certainly can and it is very helpful if, like me, you get loads of unwanted mails.

 

Just pull down on the notification and the options are there (archive and reply by default). Thanks to This-is-me, I have now found how to change the options to delete and reply.
