Send files as email attachments directly from document library
There is no need to download files to local file system in order to attach it to your email. Just select desired files in any Document Library and attach them to your email with just one click.
Available from library ribbon and item drop-down menu
You can perform 3 actions from either location:
- Send as Attachment (open Outlook New Mail form and attach selected documents)
- Send As Archive (compress selected files into one archive and attach)
- Download as archive (compress selected files in archive and downloads to your file system)
Send documents as attachments – not as links
OOTB SharePoint on-premise functionality doesn't allow you to send files as attachments to your email. You should download it to your local drive, or you can send a link to file. In SharePoint Online you can share the document. However with Email As Attachment web part you enable your SharePoint users to attach any file or group of files directly to their message. Sometimes this feature is extremely required. Especially when communicating with external users, and exchanging important documents with them.
Send multiple selected documents in archive
If there are too many files to be sent in one email, you can add them all in just one click as one archive. Simply and swiftly.
