Microsoft Outlook’s Email Attach File Tool

One of my new favorite features of Microsoft 2016 is Outlook’s Email Attach File tool. There’s no more searching dialog box after dialog box for that document you just saved. Now you can attach your file from your recent item list and share it from OneDrive or SharePoint with ease.

How it Works:

While in your message, click on Attach File or Attach Item and see how easy it is.

  • Attach Recent Files: You can attach recent files from the “recent item” list that is stored in the Cloud (i.e. OneDrive, SharePoint etc.)Productivity Tip - Outlook Attach File
