I can't access the SWAYs on the IPAD-App throuhg the SWAY-App if the Sway was not created by myself but shared with me.
Any possibility to view a shared with me sway on the IPAD App?16 votes
At the bottom of sway there are options to share this via social channels like twitter and FB. I would like the options to turn this on or off.7 votes
Debería haber haber opciones para usar las presentaciones de Sway sin una conexión permanente a internet, algo así como Prezi, que se pueden bajar como un archivo ejecutable, porque no todos tenemos una conexión permanente y cuando se tiene que ir a un lugar a otro sería bueno poder contar con la presentación, sin la necesidad de internet.12 votes
Are we able to track how many time the sway is viewed, how many unique users view it and maybe it can pick up users' details such as email address?23 votes
i'm a high student and i really like Sway, it makes your presentation really cool, but unfortunately i can't save the document in my pc and it was suck becuse it only available on Windows 10. i hope you can bring sway to Windows 8.1 and 846 votes
I have done this many times for my professors in collage to make an basic HTML document for a sway submission because most of the time teachers want a physical file than a link. Please look at the file attached and look how I coded it. I used the embed code with and HTML template I created. Also please look how I have the resolution set for the sway Iframe because it is better than the default resolution for projectors. Maybe you can have an option for a sway convert to file (which is a HTML document)5 votes
I use Sway once a week. I create a Sway and send it to my employees to update them. I would love for me and my colleagues to be able to SEARCH content by text within those Sways. Like "I remember I said something about "XYZ" but i don't remember which Sway." Well, with search functions you could type in XYZ and find the Sways that relate! :)13 votes
currently the full screen button is only available in sway when using the embed url
the regular play url does not include the full screen button
When pressing the play button the full screen button should be available just as it is in embed mode4 votes
SWAYs, especially those with videos and other rich multimedia content, take too long to load and view on mobile devices.
I tested several 'featured' SWAYs on an iPhone 6, iPad, Samsung Note 4, and Note Tablet ed. 2014. I tried both ATT's 4G mobile data and a very fast WiFi connection.
The TEST RESULTS were the same: SWAYs load too slowly for most mobile viewers, especially first-time casual users to a Docs.Com Collection.
If MSFT can't improve SWAY mobile loading times, this outstanding method for web publishing will surely flop.13 votes
We are able to "share" a sway by clicking on a Yammer button, then it will launched a dialog box allowing us to post the Sway Link to a yammer conversation.
Is is possible to get some evolution on Sway to be able to Comment a Sway using Yammer (as example, by making the same thing as we have in Office Video : allowing user to comment a Video within a Yammer Conversation) like screenshot in attachment32 votes
Add a person to view/edit the Sway, just like you can do with a word document. It is silly to have to email the link.4 votes
I would like to be able to hide some cards without having to delete them. This would be very useful when showing a general Sway to a particular audience that might not be interested in some parts. It would also help when experimenting with various card arrangements to see which render the best in Preview mode.228 votes
Thanks for the suggestion! :)
I created about 5 Sways, all public, but i am not able to find them via google search. The sways are live for a few month. Event if i search very specifically, i can only find tweets or other posts mentioning the sway, but never the sway itself.
Found an older thread here on that topic, looked again and my sways are public for everyone. in the sourcecode i see a nofollow / no index tag.
thanks for help,
We’re gathering feedback on this suggestion. Any comments about the scenario you see this useful for would be helpful.
Currently Sways are not indexed by search engines. Here is a support article with more information: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Privacy-settings-in-Sway-394b551c-be6f-4bd7-a70a-f318d72bf217
Let people subscribe to sway presentations so they recieve alerts when presentations changes86 votes
Thanks for the suggestion! Do you frequently edit the same Sway and want to update your readers? Or do you publish multiple Sways to Docs.com and want to notify users when something new has been published? Let us know by leaving a comment! :)
I really wish Sway could allow the author to create an interactive event orientation that would then allow the end-user to respond to the event (RSVP) right in the app & send an update to the author to keep tabs on who's accepted and who have declined. Easy way to invite a large number of people to events and keep track of responses.6 votes
Would there be a way to save a Sway offline? Many conferences have little or no dependable wireless, which is also true for many schools. Offline mode would be helpful. I'm not sure if it can be done since it is dynamically rendering to different device types, but a "PDF" like snapshot mode would be helpful.1,151 votes
I'd like the option of having my sway URL encoded in a big sized QR code and having it automatically inserted at the end of the sway.
This is useful because when I present to an audience, I thought of not giving handouts to people anymore. Instead I would generate a giant QR code, encoding my Sway address, and put it in the Sway last page.81 votes
Neat idea! Thanks for the suggestion. :)
As a business user it is vital that our presentation is not shared on social sites or anywhere else. The option to only share with certain people is not am option either, we simply need the ability to embed the sway and have people view on our website. I think its a great app but until we have the ability to secure our contents as most other business apps do it is a non starter.......such a waste from what is such a great idea.32 votes
Thanks for the suggestion!
Save sways to OneDrive. Maybe in a way which is similar to OneNote (just a "link" to the notebook is sync, and the content "per se" is online. In the same way, just a link to the sway gets sync to the PC).
This way, the standard sharing features of OneDrive could be used by Sway.
If I put a Sway in a shared folder, everyone who can see that folder could see the Sway.575 votes
Thanks for sharing. Can you help us understand a bit of why you would want to Save to OneDrive? Is it for sharing or is it for offlne access? Are there other services you would want to save to? Why?
Interesting idea— please drop a comment if you like this idea as well.
