Attach File Dialog
Multi-select files to upload/attach from onedrive.
Every time I have to attach multiple files to a Teams post, and have to navigate the entire Teams folder structure (which is relatively complicated in our environment) to find the location which stores all the files, I cry.
I yearn for a sea of tick boxes, or a multiple selection feature.
I honestly thought there was something wrong with me that I wasn't figuring out how to do this. After much research, I now understand that it is impossible to select multiple files in onedrive or sharepoint (or teams) and share them all at once. I cannot believe that this seemingly simple ask has not been satisfied as I have seen requests for it dating back to 2014. I think I might be able to do it in dropbox, that's my next move-investigate yet ANOTHER service to do something that Microsoft is unable to do, despite the cost my company is paying for Microsoft365 and the prevalence of Microsoft in the corporate world. I am literally smh.

Can't believe this hasn't yet been implemented. What a pain!
The fact that, inexplicably, selection of multiple items isn't supported in this control is compounded by two other, non-standard behaviors:
1. The file selection dialog can't be moved, so if you want to check which files you already attached, you have to close the dialog
2. The control doesn't remember the last folder visited. For every new file, you have to start at the OneDrive root and navigate down to the folder containing the relevant files.
The small number of votes suggests that not many people actually use this feature in Teams. Either because they don't know about or understand it, or because it's just too inconvenient.
Huge benefits for making the saved files more easily accessible in a post. Rather than expecting people to know and find the file structure.
Massive requirement - we run networks for many clients and this is a massive task that is missing from the system
This would be a meaningful time saver for me. It would also be consistent with the experience across other products.
