    I saw in a thread the Update 3 was to include document attachment in email. I cannot figure out how to do this. Can anyone provide instructions on this?

    You need to open the document from the office hub and hit share.

    That's now new though. I've been emailing documents to my bosses from my phone for a while now. That's how I send them my billable hours for invoicing and I've definitely done that on GDR2 on my 1020.

    Via a sky drive link. Not actually attaching the document.

    That really blows. Not much different and that feature was already very hard for people to find.

    How? From within Office Hub?

    Yes you need to share the doc from within the hub. Gdd3 update will allow you to attach right from email itself :-)

    Yeah and on GDR2 (1020). I just long press any document that's on my phone and send from any email and it attaches. If it's on skydrive, but not my phone I do the same but before the "send from" screen comes up it says "Downloading...". Still attaches directly and without simply sending a skydrive link, though I still have to go to the Office Hub.

    It is pretty crappy how they implemented it, but you need to open up the Office Hub, find the file you will to attach, long press, and select share. Then you select your email account and then you'll notice that the file is actually attached.

    So yeah, to save time, simply nothing has changed regarding attachments in GDR3.

    So it's still not working the way it should. Sigh, when I hit attach, it should allow it from there, not force me to go to another app. It's stuff like this that will hurt WP in the business sector.

    I'd say more of an incomplete implementation, not an incorrect one. It should work the way it does now and also from the email app itself.

    but this doesn't make it so you can attach when replying to an email which is absolutely comical

    It is comical. Gmail app can even open the files (docs, pdfs and etc) on its app. Gmail for android, and quickly reply it, edit it. Everything on a mail app. Here, MS owns office and I cant even do the same on the e-mail app...kind of garbage...

    Not happening... the attachment button in the mail just directs you to 'Photos' (of course you can upload multiple photos)

    shows how much "vision" they have... who the hell do they have over there making decisions on what is needed in a phone? ESPECIALLY when you look at their push toward business users and you can't even figure out this BASIC feature...?

    That's the exact same way I've been doing it since WP7. I can do that exact same action on GDR2 now with any documents I have stored on the phone or in Skydrive. I think what everyone is asking is how to attach multiple documents to a single email- something that no one has been able to uncover yet. I'm really not sure how MS is advertising this as a new feature when this functionality has always been there.

    exactly, and considering that most attachments will be needed in the form of a reply then I don't see how they fix the attachment issue.

    The WP blog post doesn't mention email.attachments. That was only reported on WPC.
    http://blogs.windows.com/windows_pho...w-program.aspx

    It doesn't mean it won't happen, its just that this 'preview' doesn't have it.

    Edit: I believe WPC knows what it's talking about, so I would think that attaching office files from the email app will come in gdr3. Its just that this preview doesn't do it. I still think this feature will arrive in the final gdr3. Its just a personal opinion.

    If that's the case then so be it. However with that said, I don't think this is something that needs to wait for a system update. Win8 does it perfectly by updating the email client as an app. Somthing that they need to start doing with WP

    To tell the truth it wont update now. I talked to some devs and they told me that is API's restriction that avoid to attach on e-mail. WP8 apps (even native) can't go to documents folders, videos or etc. That it is why whatsapp u cant send videos from your library. Again poor job of MS.
