In the past, to attach a file stored in a SharePoint site, we’d have to open SharePoint in the browser, navigate to the file stored in a library in a site, download it to the desktop, then drag it into the email. And if you wanted to attach multiple files, you’d have to download each file one at a time, which can be a pain.
There’s a new way to attach files stored in SharePoint into an email using Outlook 2016. Check it out:
Step 1: Open Outlook 2016.
Step 2: Make sure you have setup Connected Services – See: “How to Set Up Connected Services in Outlook 2016“.
Step 3: Create a new email.
- Click on the Insert Tab.
- Click on Attach File.
- Click on Browse Web Locations. Choose Sites – [COMPANY NAME]. You’ll now be able to access files stored in your SharePoint site.
