Drag and Drop from Outlook

Today, I am able to take an excel file from a folder and drag it onto the canvas, which automatically creates an Input Data tool.

I would like to be able to drag an excel file right from outlook to do the same!

I receive a healthy number of Excel files via email.  Being able to drag from Outlook onto the canvas would be a very nice quality of life improvement!

Can we add in that if something is dragged from outlook that it auto-copies to the workflow's folder as well?  Outlook may use a temp folder for the files, but if we're dragging them over from outlook to the canvas, and option or prompt to "import and copy" to the workflow's parent folder would be a nice option with this enhancement.
