Have you tried dragging an attachment straight from your outlook email into a SharePoint library? Is this the hidden gem that you have been looking for?

SharePoint Online - A modern library drag 'n drop hidden gem in Edge only. Microsoft Edge, Microsoft Office 365, Microsoft SharePoint Online 9311429a edac 4de4 9cb9 6853d9ddd7d2

Did it work for you?

This doesn’t work in Chrome, but it does work in the Edge browser. Simply find an email with an attachment and open the modern library in Edge. Then drag the attachment directly into SharePoint Online.

I also tested if I could drag ‘n drop the whole email, but unfortunately that doesn’t work yet. Hopefully that will happen one day too.
