Enable Outlook to attach files from Sharepoint Online and OneDrive.
The 2016 versions of Word/Excel/PowerPoint natively allow you to save files directly to Sharepoint Online and OneDrive, yet Outlook offers no option to attach one of those files into an outgoing email. If Microsoft truly believes in "cloud-first" one would think they'd integrate Outlook with their own cloud services.

I can't believe it is still not an option. Access to sharepoint works like a charm in Word, Excel and PP. If it was clearly told it is microsoft's strategy to force us to use windows instead of osx, at least we could stop hoping and move on to the next issue.
I see that is was 'planned' on march 16th 2016. My company really misses this feature. When will it be available?

What is the sense in paying for 365 if it will not function on my computer. Please create this function quickly! Much <3 - angie

Seems that this came with 15.28, but is pretty much useless implementation.
I can only attach a link from Sharepoint.
And even on the link there is default that recipient can edit.
So when sending mail outside of my organisation, I still need to download file manually from Sharepoint and then attach it from local file system as there is no option to attach it as a copy from Sharepoint - only as a link :(
saving to Sharepoint libraries is definitely a must have too
There are a lot of things "missing" in Outlook for Mac and this one is important.

I have Office 365 and normally work in desktop Outlook 2016 for Mac but annoyingly I have to go to Outlook Web Access in order to attach OneDrive files to emails, whereas my other Office 365 apps work seamlessly with OneDrive.
The attach file button in Outlook for Mac 2016 should suggest recent documents you've been working on like the one in Office 2016 for Windows

This is Microsoft politics for its own proprietary technologies. Other implementations like AppleScript, accessing Calendar and Address Book are more important for Apple users. Please change your priorities - your users would be thankful.
Provide the ability to attach a file from OneDrive.

Recent documents you have been working on should appear as a quick pick list when you want to attach them

Especially ridiculous now, as the rest of the Office 2016 suite supports OneDrive out of the box, even defaulting to online locations when saving/opening.
Show recent files when adding an attachment as per the Windows version
When adding attachment, insert the 'Recent Items' drop down button on the 'Attach File' button. This is on Windows and is very nice feature
Please add OneDrive attachment support in Outlook for Mac 2016. It's already supported in Android and Web version of Outlook but not in Mac. Why not Mac?

WTF? So few votes, but already planned, but gmail ical is still not planning.

Even more I need to connect a phonebook list to Outlook Contacts from SharePoint to Outlook like the big boys and girls can do on PCs.
I need to be able to create iqy for Excel files from the Mac side of my computer rather than going to a VM.

Possibility to chose whether I want to send file as an attachment or just as a link from my OneDrive (if OneDrive client installed on my Mac).
Not only would attaching be useful, but having the ability to Save from Outlook to Sharepoint or OneDrive.

I'd settle for enabling Outlook to *save* attachments *to* SharePoint and OneDrive (including on-premise for both). Most of what I do is internal sharing, so you can always copy a link to the document and paste to an email. Actually, the Share option in Word/Excel/PPT natively lets you email a link to a document by automatically opening an Outlook message containing said link. You really don't want people to start attaching documents to emails that are already in SharePoint or OneDrive, you want to them to open them and, if needed, edit them online. So, really, your request to attach docs is really anti- "cloud first" (at least for internal, external is a different story).
