Attach files from iCloud Drive
Please add the option to add files from iCloud Drive, currently Dropbox, Google Drive and recent attachments are there but not iCloud which is frustrating.

When sharing photos that have been uploaded to iCloud, Outlook should automatically insert the iCloud link when you select it from the share screen. It could recognize when say 20 or more photos are being shared and instead of attaching that many, just put the link in. Currently, you have to choose “copy iCloud link” and then open outlook and only then paste the link into an email.

We want to supply a file attachment from OneDrive or other cloud drive to create a new message from another IOS app, then invoke Outlook for IOS to compose this new email
About “custom URL Scheme”, please refer to this link:
This blocks our customer’s customized IOS app development and deployment
We want to provide the functionality to use a custom URL scheme to pass the attachment files to Outlook for IOS. We think it is a useful feature in Outlook for IOS.
Currently we can only specify the subject, message body via the custom URL scheme. We want to specify the attachment files to invoke to compose a new message in Outlook for IOS
High. If we have this feature, it can improve the users’ experience
We want to have this feature in Outlook for IOS
Currently the users use IOS native mail email client as a workaround, but they want to use Outlook for IOS so that their IOS app can invoke Outlook for IOS to compose this new email with specified subject, message and the attachment files
Attaching iOs OneDrive files to a draft email in iOs Outlook is unnecessarily difficult.
1) The OneDrive search functions should be available when attaching a file to a draft email. Navigating folders and remembering file names frequently results in my not being able to attach the desired file.
2) We should be able to attach multiple OneDrive files to a draft email in Outlook.
Basically, searching for and attaching OneDrive files to draft emails in Outlook should be as easy as searching for files and sending them from within OneDrive.
On the iPad: When attaching a file from my OneDrive account it is utterly painful. Why? I have more than 15 levels of folders and hundreds of thousands of files. The attach feature in Outlook forces the user to browse and dig into each directory. There is no option for recently used directories!! For example, to attach 4 files from the same directory which is 10 levels deep, the user must navigate those 10 levels each time. This is very painful. Oftentimes I am replying to other people's emails and therefore I cannot send the files directly from the OneDrive app.
The Office apps for iPad should all show recently used folders (not just files) and also have the ability to mark folders as "favorites". This would really ease in file navigation.
How is it possible that this is not implemented yet??!!!! I am considering migrating too Google Professional suite
When attaching pictures or documents from a folder in OneDrive, there should be a possibility to mark more than one picture or file to add at once. As it is now you have to choose one file, then go back through all the folders and then choose another one. If you want to attach a few files then it’s not easy to say at least.
There is currently the ability to only see a limited number of cloud drives (via email accounts) and not separately linked accounts. Although I have them added in Outlook, they’re not listed when I select ‘Attach File’ button in a composed email message. For example, I’m using Google Mail account but would like to get to my Personal OneDrive to attach the file. The Google Mail, Outlook Mail and O365 Business files are listed, but not the OneDrive account that I had added.
I cannot upload files from OneDrive to a mail started from outlook.

I found a workaround for this. Using the Files app in iOS locate the attachment and choose Outlook to send it. I don’t know how you could send more than one file but possibly selecting several could also work?

It’s now July and this is still not available. Microsoft is a barrier to good business.
This needs to be fixed ASAP. I will not be switching to any other cloud service. I use Outlook on my iPad daily and need this to better mange my time.

I see this functionality I now available in the iPhone version of outlook but NOT in the iPad version still - very frustrating
It is a quite the issue that I cannot attach a file (other than a photo) from my iPhone hard drive nor from iCloud from this app. Instead one would have to upload the file from its source (i.e. the Files app), but then only one at a time. What a nuisance. Please add this feature ASAP. Otherwise, pretty good app. Thanks.

FFS Microsoft - I am sick to death of attempting to work in outlook and I can’t attach files that are in Apple Files, iCloud or other places I’ve stored it on my iPhone or iPad.
This didn’t use to be a problem before you bought the platform, so fix it and stop trying to use your platform to force workers to use OneDrive. My work doesn’t support it, or google drive.

This email client will be THE BEST if it had the option to attach files from iCloud Drive. Because it doesn’t have the feature I may just have to change my services to a different provider.
We need to have iCloud soon or I will end my subscription -
The current default behavior on iOS is to send the document as a link to OneDrive and there is no option available to attach it instead.
This ability would allow me to work more efficiently and enjoy utilizing Microsoft Office regularly. Please make this a priority.

It is very strange that one cannot attach files that are saved on the iPad in files and iCloud. This is a major shortcoming.
