Using Microsoft Outlook with a Chrome Book. Posting attachments

We have just migrated to Microsoft365 from using Google Drive, Google mail etc. I use a Chrome Book and have done for a while.I have no problems accessing all the MSFT Apps, Outlook, OneDrive, Teams, etc. but I am having difficulty with OneDrive.
When I receive an email with attachments and I want to add the attachments to OneDrive. My Chrome Book wants me to move them to Google Drive!
How do I save an attachment to OneDrive on my Chrome Book?

RE: Using Microsoft Outlook with a Chrome Book. Posting attachme

Hello Christopher,

Thank you for your question. Of course, because you cannot install 365 desktop apps on a Chromebook, you can only access 365 in a web browser.

To save an attachment to OneDrive, open the email, then click the drop-down on the side of the attachment.

A "Save to OneDrive" option should appear in the list. When you select this option, the attachment will be saved in OneDrive, usually in the Attachments folder.

From here, you should be able to move the file to anywhere in your 365 environment.

I hope this helps.

Kind regards
Marius Barnard

Outlook tip:

Sending on behalf of tip related to servers

If somebody gives you the correct access to there inbox then you should be able to send on behalf of that person. If it says that you do not have permissions then you would need to speak with the techie guys. There is a setting on all user accounts which gives you send on behalf of rights. Users would need to be added and thus solving the issue.

This is something that I came accross on a recent rollout.
