It only took a bit over 4 years, but as of yesterday, Microsoft Teams now supports dragging attachments from Outlook into Microsoft Teams!
This gives you a very fast and easy way to save attachments you receive via Email.
How to use drag and drop support for file attachments:
Open message in Outlook with attachment
Navigate to the Files tab of a channel you want to save to
Drag the attachment from Outlook into Teams
You'll see an "Uploading 1 Item" notification on the top right of Teams
The attachment is now saved to Teams
The feature should be enabled and ready for you to start using. If you don't see it, try restarting Outlook and Teams, then try again. If it still isn't working, contact your IT resource to make sure the feature has been turned on.
