I just tried to upload a file to share to a teammate in a chat and I keep getting an error message. I was just able to upload files an hour ago and now I am no longer able to.

I have tried restarting my Mac as well as the teams app

Hi @Alexe414 , 

 

have you tried to use the web app instead? Maybe even with different browsers!

 

Can you tell me what kind of file you tried to upload?

 

Sven

@svenseidenberg I think it may have been a Mercury in retrograde thing. If I renamed the title of the document to something slightly different it let me upload to a chat. Then at the end of the day the feature behaved as normal again. 

Hi @Alexe414,

 

I had a similar issue one day turned out there already was a file named like this. Seems like the error message is a  bit misleading here. Glad it´s working now!

 

Sven

@svenseidenberg usually it gives me a pop up message to overwrite and replace the original with the new document but in this case it wasn't. Glad it fixed itself!
