Adding Emojis

Adding Stickers

Adding attachments

Adding attachment to your conversation is cool, but you have to make sure that you have a great naming convention to find your document. There is no search available (at the moment), you have to rely on the file name.

The attachment tool will show you your most recent documents, documents from your OneDrive for Business or the documents from your team.
