Drag&Drop to Outlook add-in

I have a problem with Outlook 365 add-in we are developing. The add-in should accept files dragged from user desktop. The web page is working fine with Drag&Drop in any browser: IE, Edge, Opera.


Same web page in add-in accepts only files dragged from Office 365 Application and doesn't accept anything from Outlook, user desktop, any other website or app.

So in fact add-in is droppable and working fine, but only for files dragged from Office 365 App.


Is there any special security setting in place?

Developer issue, not Outlook client issue so I removed the Outlook tag here. Thanks for your understanding and support.

Hi @AlexanderZ-1396,

Welcome!

Not know much about add-in develop, however, I knew an existed add-in which could help achieve the similar goal. For your reference: Outlook File Drag. (Note: Since the web site is not hosted by Microsoft, the link may change without notice. Microsoft does not guarantee the accuracy of this information.)

Hope this can be helpful.
