Cannot add attachments to Approvals in Teams.

Darcy Bear 405 Reputation points

Can send approval request with no attachments but when one is added it fails. "Something went wrong, try again later". I reported it to Microsoft in the admin portal but the reply was no issue found. I have 2 office365 domains and both are acting the same inside and outside their networks. Incognito mode doesn't work, browser or desktop app both fail. Sending approval inside a chat also fails. Reinstalled Teams.

Issue started Monday morning. Has something changed on the license side perhaps?

    Hi everyone! Same here. I tried all the methods but nothing. The strange is the message is without error code. Only "something went wrong. wait a bit then try again" !!!!
