Cannot share files in a Chat
In a Chat, if I click either the PaperClip or the Files Tab, I cannot attach a file.
This applies to both the desktop and web versions of the application.
Have uninstalled teams, rebooted, then reinstalled the desktop app.
Have OneDrive for business set up.
This bug has been fixed!

Having the same issue. Cannot send attachments in private chats works fine in channels though. Please advice. This is very frustrating.

I have still the same issue on windows and newest version!

This is not fixed. I have never been able to send files in chat.
Whenever I try drag in or click the attachment icon I get:
"Sorry, you need OneDrive for Business for file sharing. See your IT admin about getting a license."
Microsoft Teams Version 1.0.00.16451 64-bit (last updated on 6/21/17 - today).

What is your recommendation if I'm still getting the "you need OD for Biz" error within individual chats? We have ODB and file sharing works at the team level. Thanks.

Same issue here. Sharing files works in a group but direct messages blocks me, "Sorry you need OneDrive for Business to share files..."
Using MacOS Teams, I get the message, "We're setting up your files. Check back in a few minutes." when I'm trying to post an attachment in a channel.
However, it is going on 2 weeks and no matter how many times I check back, I still cannot attach files in channels.

Several people in our organization have the same issue.
There are 2 users in our company that have reported this issue. We have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the application. Seems to be isolated to the installed version as the web portal OneDrive works properly in chat.

We keep getting 'sorry you need onedrive for business for file sharing' when we try to share a file in a chat. We all have onedrive for business. Is this a bug?

I'm having the same issue on the Mac desktop app. I cannot attach files to chats, only to team channels. :-(
