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'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).

At a minimum, Outlook should be able to look up and include a link to the file stored in the cloud.
Yes please! This is a huge pain point for me as I have this feature on the Windows side but not Mac.
Also when you want to attach a file it is great to display the recently accessed documents to simplify the management of the attachment

I thought it could already do this? At least with OneDrive, I think it can...
Even in the last update this problem isn't solved!
Office 365 MAC should support Sharepoint completely!
Is it so difficult to add online locations in Outlook?

That's strange no attach file from OneDrive for Business in Outlook for Mac 2016 while the suite of Office for Mac open files from SharePoint server !!!
Seriously, this is still not supported? I just tried to attach file from One Drive for Business to Outlook 2016 for MAC and One Drive for Business is not a source option at all.

This is already supported in Outlook Web Access. It needs to be supported in the desktop client as well, please. Our users store files in OneDrive for Business and SharePoint Online and need to be able to easily attach them to their emails in Outlook.

Please add support for OneDrive natively.
