Why you’d use it

We know sharing files is critical to building a collaborative environment. With this new feature, users can easily share files with meeting attendees before a meeting, ensuring everyone is prepared and able to collaborate on the same file.

Additional details

If you attach a file directly to a Calendar invite, you will see a pop-up asking if you’d like to share the file with the meeting attendees.
