I have a local "next action" folder in the mail app on my mac. I move emails that require an action from the inboxes of my different email accounts into this folder. Also, i have asmart folder that contains flagged mails.
I would like to sync those folders with my iPad. So, the only solution I was able to think of is to create such a "next action" folder in one of my email accounts, e.g., my icloud account. However, it is very tedious on the iPad if I read emails from another inbox account and want to move them into this next action folder on my icloud account: each time i have to navigate up one level, and then navigate down into the icloud account.
Is there a way that I can link this folder to the main menu in mail on iOS? I noticed, for example, that my VIP folder (a smart folder) from my iCloud account appears there too. However, i didn't know how I achieved that. I would also like to set up a smart folder for flagged items that is shared between iOS and MacOs mail. How can I do that?
So to summarize what i want to set up:
1) A top level folder that is shared between iOS and MacOs mail
2) a top level smart folder for flagged items that is also shared
