How to share files through Microsoft Teams


Chances are that you have worked with the Microsoft Teams virtual collaboration solution recently. Many companies that work in a hybrid way use this easy-to-use tool for their virtual meetings. Collaborating with colleagues who work from home or with externals who don’t come to your office is easier than ever with Microsoft Teams. Scheduling a meeting is easy, the video and audio quality are particularly good and the tool offers all kinds of useful features, such as the ability to share files during a meeting.

Sharing files within Microsoft Teams is easy:

During a meeting:

  • In the box where you type messages, click Attach;
  • Then choose to upload a file via OneDrive or from your computer;
  • Select the right file and choose Share or Open;
  • A copy of the file will now be uploaded and shared with the participant(s).

Sharing files with your team via a channel:

  • In the box where you type messages, click Attach;
  • Choose Browse Teams and Channels, Recent, OneDrive or Upload on my computer to choose the file you want to share;
  • Upload the appropriate file by selecting Upload a copy or Open.

You can also select and share files via the Files tab and then the Upload files option.
