Outlook cannot attach a file from Outlook. when I am composing an email, click on paperclip, there is no way to go to OneDrive. I can find Google drive but it is absurd that a Microsoft product - Outlook does not work with another Microsoft product - OneDrive. That should be a given.
All other email app allows us to attach file from Google drive like yahoo mail or BlueMail and many others.. Wonder what is problem for outlook to have this future??
I was just as frustrated as all of you. I couldn't figure out why I outlook on my old phone would let em attach files from onedrive but my new phone would NOT. I figured out that even though onedrive was installed on my phone I still had to add it as and account on my outlook account.
Go to Settings and add your onedrive account and the option to attach files from your onedrive will be available when you click on the paperclip. Hope this saves someone a litte time.
I cannot understand how to attach files from once drive form the android Outlook app? Is this possible if it isn't how am I'm going to trade information ? I didn't want to change to a Android form my old windows but you guys have given us nothing in the moble market. This is insane. I don't want Google anything either or Apple just a solid easy way to email files form my cloud out......is this so much to ask for? I don't understand? And I don't get paid enough to hunt for a workaround?
Seriously.. this is so messed up. ITS 2018 FFS

Google Drive SOLUTION (android phone with outlook)
1) make certain your gmail account is added to outook
2) click attachment paperclip
3)click attach from files
4)scroll until you see your Google drive account
5) click see all
6) select the folders until you find your file
7)click your file
8) select INSERT LINK or ATTACH FILE
Yes, when clicking attachment an option for Google drive would be much more seamless and turn a 3 step process into a 1 step process.
Ive had this problem for a long time. Now I can attach google drive folders easily.

if I want to attach three or four files from Google Drive, I have to open up photos and then drive three or four times. It's very long process and should be simple to do. this is from a mobile device

i would like a onedrive button so i can access one drive inside the outlook app when attaching documents on my phone. at the moment we have to open one drive and share then attach it
Alexander Corsell commented
make it easy and seamless. when click attach file it should open my one drive and show all folders and files, not just recently used files. stupid.

why can't I attach files from other apps like every normal app? you guys either make me attach from OneDrive or browse the filesystem of the phone.. absolutely ridiculous. I want to attach from Google Drive, Dropbox, etc. All the other apps make this so easy, except Microsoft...
I'm also having trouble with this. The Outlook android app simply won't link my OneDrive account to the app. I can share files rather than a link if I select the right option through OneDrive and that can in turn open the Outlook app. However the app itself refuses to connect OneDrive and there is no option for Google Drive even though it says in the "What's New" intro when installing the app that there is. False advertising as far as I'm concerned. It baffles me that apps like BlueMail are better equipped.

When typing an email on my Android device, I can't attach files from my Google Drive because Outlook for Android does not provide such an option.

when finding files in onedrive searching would make it so much easier
Brian Rayner commented
When using Google Drive, it attaches the file, but when using OneDrive to attach, it inserts a link. Why can't we attach the file?
KB Forbes commented
new version only allows one drive links.
Hello, Indeed would be simpler to add the possibility to Outlook, as said from Onedrive to Outlook there is no problem, but when you use Outlook and need to attach documents that you have on your Onedrive, is simply impossible :( sight
I feel at this point professionally it is a must to have that possibility, since it is part of Microsoft and is a pain in the a** to need to change app to another copy a link for the Onedrive to copy in your email via Outlook or Download the documents from Onedrive to your phone/tablet and the only go to Outlook to attached them. Please do something about it, it would definitely make a huge difference!
Thank you in advance to the team.
