Post message to teams with word document



I have a word document (can be taken from OneDrive or SharePoint, doesn't matter) and I want to post a message to a channel on Teams with the file as attachment.


I have been able to upload to the specific sharepoint library of the channel, but I need to post the file as a message in the channel.


How can I accomplish that? Thanks

I don't see any clear way to do it with current Teams connector action blocks 😞

I also assume you already discarted workarounds like:

-sharing file link in the message body

-sending an email to channel email

Hope this helps

Thanks for your reply.

I can't send an email to the group, and we dont want to post the link as it will open a browser windows to sharepoint, and we want to keep users working within Teams.

Hello @efialttes 

what I do at the moment is to upload the file to the SharePoint site of the channel and then post a message about the upload.

Have and issue though with the SP not accessible after the Team and channel is created, have created  anew post describing the issue.
