Allow drag and drop from Outlook directly to Teams
Dragging and dropping attachments directly from the e-mail window without having to first drag them onto the desktop (for instance) and them from there dragging them to the files tab in Teams would make many lives so much easier.
There are a few suggestions to enable drag and dropping, but it seems that it is already working, at least with the desktop client, but making that work directly from an e-mail window would be very nice.
This feature request is still on in the backlog. No new updates available at this time.

Any update on this - it's incredibly irritating?

Drag and drop needs to be added. It works in Sharepoint, but not in Teams Desktop or online application. Thanks for working on this.

@warren Can you please provide an update on this feature?
Henning Luetje commented
Very important. Please implement this.
I don't understand this at all. I have to click and drag it to my local computer before dragging it into Teams. That makes no sense. Why add a step? This needs to be fixed.
I hope we get soon another update as it has been more than a year. I run a law firm and not being able to drag and drop drives crazy my non-technological users.

This seems to work from Outlook desktop app to the web app Teams in chrome (but not the Win10 teams app).

Looking at the comments -- there is an additional comment almost daily -- yet the last response is july 2018... I would think this would be out of the box since outlook and teams are both MS. Please Microsoft -- when will this be available..
How, when Microsoft own outlook, is this not a feature.
I can't think of anything more important, for my role at least, than for using this tool to collate all the thousands of emails, and attachments that come with it to one place.
This solely will stop the uptake in my organisation, which is not massive, but still 30,000 users.

Also allow drag and drop from teams to other locations (desktop, email, folders, etc.)
Drag and drop would reduce the time required to add items to a share folder as we are now working entirely in teams. Using the save as is time consuming when you have multiple items to move into the file.
When when when will this be ready?
Come on Microsoft!
Drag and drop is so quicker and efficient!

I really don't have any understanding for this feature not to work! I would assume that using the drag&drop option from one Microsoft product to another Microsoft product is more a selfunderstanding option. This works from outlook to OneNote for example!

The drag and drop functionality is the only one preventing the use of Teams in our organization
Hello, implementing the drag and drop functionality from mail to TEAMS would increase the acceptance of my boss using TEAMS. It is a so natural action to do drag and dropping files.
I appreciate listening to this uservoice and looking forward for the implementation of drag and drop.
What are we waiting for here, drag and drop would seem like an out of the box functionality.
This feature already exists, I use a cheap add-in to do this.
Its called DragDrop(dot)com.
It saved me loads of time in my work.
Super important feature
