I have just upgraded to a Microsoft Business 365 so I can use the full functionality of Teams. However, I don't appear to have the ability to attach files or screengrabs in a chat. The attachment icon isn't present.

 

I am trying to chat to an external client. Can anyone help?

Hi! File attachment/sharing isn’t supported for external chats unfortunately
Thanks for letting me know. Do you know if this is something on the road map for future development?

A workaround for an image is to convert it to .png, copy and paste it from the open file in Paint
