How can we improve Microsoft SharePoint Apps for iOS?

Allow to attach SharePoint files to emails on Outlook and Mail apps

It is not possible to set SharePoint app as an storage account for both Mail and Outlook apps. So, it's not possible to attach SharePoint files to an email on both apps. It's really absurd to be able to do it with Dropbox and not with SharePoint, the main storage account for companies subscribed to O365!!

        How is this not still fixed?

        In regards to previous comments adding via OD that’s is fine if you are creating a new email. However my complaint is when Relying and want to attach a file to the thread. The OD sites option is not visible unless I’m missing something??

        Yes, i also would like to be able to access sharepoint from outlook for IOS. I mainly use my ipad and always have to do go arounds to attach files from sharepoint to e-mails sent with outlook

        Sharepoint must be able to recognize basic apple software. Pages, Keynote and numbers. And it must have basic email functionality such as attaching to an email. Seriously, a workaround is needed to attach a file to an email?

        Agreeing with comments below. Integration in a similar manner to that which already exists with OneDrive is necessary for our business to continue using SharePoint. This is a big hole in Microsoft's Cloud strategy. Would be great to get a fix on this! Thanks.

        For those of you mentioning a SharePoint file attachment workaround (using the iOS OneDrive, sites, share a copy via Outlook) I will point out that this is sub-par. We want to be able to invoke the attachment during a reply while in the iOS Outlook app, so that the attachment stays part of the email thread. Basic functionality. Please add this feature Microsoft.

        I found a way to do this:

        Open your OneDrive App
        Touch Sites (at the bottom of the screen)
        Choose your library
        Browse until you find your file.
        Open your file.
        Press the SHARE icon
        Select 'Send a Copy' at the bottom of the screen
        Choose you email program and the file is attached.

        This only works for composing new email, it does not work when replying.

        This functionality used to work the way as Anonymous points out below but now it doesn’t work. What happened?

        Migrated to O365 and come to find out now that we are knee deep into a project the feature to attach a sharepoint file from Outlook app is not possible. Come on how does this make any sense? Come on Microsoft lets get this done! We shouldn't have to vote for this feature make it happen - where's the MAGA? just kidding - lets make it happen Microsoft!

        The Apple Mail app allows you to reply with attachments from SharePoint on current threads but the Outlook mail app does not - this seems like a major flaw if a major competitor can integrate with your own software better than the creator...

        Making a new email is one thing, but there is no way to reply to an existing email thread with a SharePoint file

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I don't see the problem. Open SharePoint app, navigate to your site. Click on your document library. It opens the OneDrive app. Find your file, click on the ellipsis. Click "Share". On the very bottom, you see "Send a copy". There you can choose "Mail" or "Outlook" app. When you do, it will take you to a "New email" with the file as an attachment.

        It’s really frustrating that we can’t do this. For this I have to keep Dropbox as well

      • Cédric Vallin commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Can you change it and make it possible? It is very difficult for a business not to be able to access all his document via outlook.
        We are going to move if this is not resolve.

        We are moving to Dropbox Business to Share Content for our Deparments and personal data of our coworkers. consuming 3000+ E3 Licences. it's absourd Outlook App can't do this. Really Microsoft?

        I completely agree. This is a ridiculous oversight by Microsoft. Apple is the most used phone in the USA. Please get the IOS working.
