Add "attach to email" option from Files in Teams
If you are working in Teams and want to send one of your files to someone outside of the Team, your options for sending it as an attachment are clunky and many clicks. You can download the file and then attach it to an email, you can open the file in Word (or whatever relevant program) and then "share" and send as an email attachment, and there are some similarly clunky options. It would be nice if there were a simple menu item for Teams files to simply "attach to email" so you can send to external customers or people who do not have permissions/access for the Team and linked SharePoint site.
yeah, must be able to drag and drop a file from Teams to an email in Outlook
PLEASE add a "drag n drop" from TEAMS to OUTLOOK attachement. Much needed feature to interface with those outside our organization.

Please add Drag and Drop similar to functions present in OneNote

I'm in favour of the drag and drop too. KISS principle please :)
WE NEED THIS ASAP!!!
Just need a very simple drag & drop, insert or copy files into emails outside of the Teams group. Surely this can't be that difficult. Otherwise makes using Teams even more clunky as it is already for document sharing.
Drag and drop to email feature please!
You just copy and paste a document in to add an attachment.

We are in the process of setting Team for large upcoming event, wich we need to be able to email forms to vendor, and was suprised to see there is not Drag and Drop from Teams to Outlook, or Send file By email Option. We need this Functionally.

We are using teams and I have just run into this difficulty. I have a PDF stored for the team to use and share. I want to be able to drag and drop the file into an outlook email and can't do it. VERY DISAPPOINTING!
Karen Alders commented
We really really need this in our organisation. A lot of collegues dont want to work with TEAMS if this option is not available. Currently we can only add recently used documents.
Susan Tutt commented
Glad it's not just me who can't find a simple way to do this.

What wonderful cloud-based* software!
*Caution: only cloud-based if you don't ever intend to move/share/print it from said cloud.
I agree 1,000% with the prior comment--MS is making it really difficult to cheerlead for transitioning to this platform when it has so many shortcomings
Thomas Laubscher commented
Sometimes it's really hard to convince users in the company using teams due to missing functions like this.
Rebekah Cox commented
I don't understand why you can't just browse your teams folders for the attachment you need and/or just drag and drop. Drives me crazy that it only has 'recent' files appear - not even the option to go via a 'file explorer' type option. Half the time they aren't even recent!!

We are trying to move everything to teams and simple things like this make it really difficult.
Team files are stored in Sharepoint and use a standard URL, so you can use the Outlook -> Browse web locations -> Sites
The URL will be https://<YOUR_SHAREPOINT_DOMAIN>/sites/<TEAM_NAME>/Shared%20Documents
This should take you to the root folder, and you can then browse to the Channel and folder that you need. Once you've done this, the URL should show in Outlook as a Recent Folder.

Please Please Please do this. Make it easy to attach meeting documents to the calendar appointment directly in Teams. Google Calendar Appointment feature is a great model if you need one.
Yes, I need this too. Working from home and need to email my personal account to print docs.
Please hurry up with this update! Sorely needed
