Automatically send files if they finish uploading.
When sending a file I have to wait for it to be uploaded before I can send it. Why don't send it but keep it uploading? It´s a waste of time. I don't won't to wait. It's frustrating.

My primary chat to one user is STILL locked by this message after a week. I found that I could "popout" a separate chat window and continue the chat there. The chat appears on the primary window chat but is not blocked by the upload lock.
I have no idea how to get rid of the upload lock yet.
I'm currently staring at a 70% uploaded file....waiting.....to be able to hit "enter" on an important message with directions to a team member.
Any reason it can't auto-send when it finishes uploading? Adobe has a similar function when you go to close a file while it's actively saving–– "This file will close when it finishes saving." Automatically. Beautiful.
What if my file takes 10mins to upload? During this time, I can't talk to the person. Such bad design...

Yes! I don't want to babysit Teams while it uploads. Please fix this! Twice yesterday I tried to send a file, had to wait so I moved on to something else, and then a few hours later realized that I hadn't sent it.

This issue actually has a lot of votes on various pages - if we all vote for on all of these perhaps we can get this issue fixed:

Yes please! If i upload a file and hit the send button, just let the message continue sending after the upload is complete. I hate having to wait around for the upload to finish before I can hit the send button again.
Look at Skype: it is easy to send files there, but in Teams you have to wait when the file will be uploaded before sending it.

Yeah at the very least fix the upload bar to represent the ability to send the message. It's annoying to see the upload bar complete, hit Send, and then be told to wait until the upload has finished... :-(
I totally agree. If I let it upload and move on to something else and forget about it, then it never gets "sent" even tho it uploaded. Ridiculous.

Completely frustrating. A very bad behaviour, absolutely useless.

Agree - especially with large files it's easy to forget to press the send button once you've moved onto other channels or chats
