It now forces me to select from SharePoint or a link?  This seems a sudden decrease in functionality?

@ColinFBMH are you accessing the Planner from Teams tab? If so, go to tasks.office.com and you should able to see the option to upload the file from the computer.

Of course Santhosh is correct :)

@Santhosh Balakrishnan  Thank you.  Indeed I am accessing the Planner from the tab in Teams.  Felt sure I had uploaded the from shared drive using the tab but perhaps not.  Are we saying this feature is simply not allowed using the tab?  I'm surprised why not?

@ColinFBMH Uploading files from Tab in teams is not supported, maybe it will be available in future

The reason for the design choice here @ColinFBMHwas that compared to the experience in the web it isn't as obvious where you'd want to put a document.  Rather than re-invent the wheel it was thought that using the Teams UI to add a document and then the Planner UI to link could achieve the right result  - and allow work on additional features rather than duplicating code.  Sorry for the extra few clicks needed here.

Best regards,

Brian
