Send uploaded files immoderately. Currently you have to wait downloading and then press Send button
When you drag-and-drop a file in edit message area, the file begins to upload. When the file will be uploaded, message which contains the file will not be send automatically. You have to wait for uploading and then press the Send button to make other person possibility to view or download the file.

We really need this feature. Just had an instance where files were shared late for a client because of this issue. Please enable us to press send before a file finishes uploading in order to either a) send once the file has finished or b) send the text and inform the recipients in the Team that the file upload is in progress.
I really need this feature, I have to share a 70Mb file daily with a coworker and it takes about 10 minutes for file to get uploaded (not sure why upload is so slow). I have to keep checking back if the file is uploaded and then press send. I often get distracted with other tasks and forget to check and that leads to delay in sending file that my coworker needs to send critical daily reports.

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.

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:
You may want to correct the spelling to "immediately".
