Attach files from other applications
It would be extremely helpful to be able to attach files from other applications (at least other Microsoft apps) to an email. It is very inconvenient to have to transfer a spreadsheet or word document to Dropbox and then attach it to an email thread in order to save the integrity of the thread.
When i attached a file from google drive it show error msg always. I can’t use this feature in the app version so I instead need to have it done on my outlook desktop.
The Outlook app is one of the best mail clients for iPad, but it still cannot replace the desktop client because it is not possible to drag a file from the native Files app or even OneDrive into an open draft email to attach it before sending. This functionality exists across all native iOS apps and a high percentage of third-party apps, but it is the primary function missing from the Outlook iPadOS client to finally allow O365 users to use their iPad as an independent computer that leverages outlook.
As part of my role i need to back up my statements with historical data usually found in other emails.
The desktop site lets be drag and drop other emails into my current as attachments.
So now i have to draft the email. Save it, log onto desk top and add the attachments.

The feature is enabled on our iPhones, but not enabled on iPad? Hope to see this one soon
Please redesign the Outlook app w.r.t. iOS 13. Current design looks not so good. Please redesign from scratch, make it more attractive and addictive.
I am unable to attach files from my desktop or Files while using Outlook on my iPad.
Noticed that Calendar does not have attachments.
The current app only allows attachment from the OneDrive or those attachment received thru this email app. It would be perfect if you could easily attached or paste docs from the Native Files ios app to this outlook app like how the Native Mail ios app works.

When I need to reply any message and attach file from files on my phone I can’t access files.
Only files from cloud drives.
You need to make access to files on my phone like others app.
With the app of apple for emails management I can attach files which are saved in my phone in other applications such as: “Dateien”, “Pages”, “OfficeSuite”, etc. With the Microsoft outlook App I am forced to put files in Dropbox, Googledrive, and other “Cloud” services ... this forces me to go back to the standard email application of my iPhone.
I look forward to your kind reply

Sending a picture or document, outlook app does not show as an option unlike the generic mail app on iPhone
Open and send attachments more easily

I love everything about outlook but one of the issues I have with outlook app is under attachments. Currently outlook does not let you attach anything from files folder on iPhone. I cannot attach files/documents saved under files app on iPhone.
I find I cannot drag an attachment from an email in outlook into another app or into my cloud storage, when in split screen mode in iPad.
I do this with a significant number of work documents and am likely going to go back to the native mail app because of this.

Be able to attach a file directly from other app in iPhone or iPad.

We need iCloud integration. We use iCloud files app more than any other cloud service on iPhones
Give the option to attach files from other apps, the apps and locations located under “browse” in the “files” app.

When selecting file attachments in email received in the Outlook app, the only options it offers for an unknown file type is to save it to OneDrive but the Outlook app should examine the device to see if there are apps that can open the attachment. For example when my company emails me an RSA token file, I should be able to tap on that file and have it open in the RSA app to import the seed file into that app but I cannot do this if the email is opened in the Outlook app as I only get the option to save the file to OneDrive. The native iOS email app ha does this situation perfectly recognizing that the attachment is a valid file type for the RSA app on my device.

I'm using the iPad app, and I'm not able to attach files that are literally saved on my iPad. How can this be?

I can go to Files app and share some documents from there to Outlook, but it would be much easier if I can do that from Outlook directly, especially when I’m on reply all.
