Share a file from cloud storage in Teams

OneDrive for Business cloud storage is available by default in Teams. To share files from other cloud storage you first must add them to Teams. For instructions, see Add a cloud storage service to Teams.

Add a cloud file to a channel conversation

  1. In Teams on the desktop or web, go to the conversation and select Attach Choose file button beneath the box where you type a message.

  2. Select your cloud storage service.

  3. Select the file you want to add.

Note: Contact your IT admin if cloud storage options don't appear.

Add a cloud file to a chat

We don't currently support sharing files from cloud storage services like Box or Dropbox in one-on-one or group chats. You can still attach files from your OneDrive for Business account to a chat message, though.
