How can we make Microsoft Teams better?

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.

    It's really hard to get users to use Teams without this functionality. How is this even a question or whether or not to make this happen?

    This works. I dragged an attachment straight from Outlook to both the Conversation and File tab in the Team App. Great, thanks.

    You can forward an email into Teams; however, I would like to see a button on the Outlook toolbar to do this and then a pull-down list to select the channel you want to forward into.

    how is this still in the backlog?? we are trying to roll out Teams and get users to adopt it and not being able to drag and drop from email is seriously hindering our efforts

    So few people I know use Teams, and not being able to drag and drop (folders and Outlook attachments) is the #1 reason why. Also wish there was a "like" feature or could add replies on others' comments below on this topic. At least we could all bond while we await the rollout of this feature ;) Please share an update soon - thank you!

    Don't know why this is so hard to achieve... Massive productivity and time saving gains if it can be done..

    It's been a year and no updates? This seems like such BASIC functionality it is mind blowing that users had to even request it. Any updates?

    I admittedly just started using teams and assumed this would be a feature because they are both Microsoft products and it seems so basic. This was first suggested in 2016 and on the backlog as of 2018. Any update on this?

    Why is this backlog? This is about the most obvious missing function imaginable.

    Really amazing,. that it was shipped with such basic functionality just broken. Fix this, it is killing productivity.
