When viewing someones sway as at the moment there are only very few available to see on sway.com, it would be good to be able to write a little review for the creator, such as ''I really enjoyed reading/viewing your sway'
It will also be useful for feedback in how others view possible improvements or corrections etc.
Thanks for the suggestion! Is it more important to you to have someone be able to comment on the entire Sway or on content within the Sway? Also, do you think of commenting as something people who are authoring with you should do or as something you want your viewers to do? Should comments be publicly visible or only visible to you? Let us know in the comments. :)
From the perspective of teaching high-school age children, the ability to add comments relating to specific areas of the Sway, and for a summary comment at the end would be very useful from a marking point of view. For the specific comments, being able to use a comment bank would make repetitive feedback - spellings, grammar, etc - a much easier prospect.
At a larger scale, the option to generate a gradebook within Teams and to link a Sway to a column in the gradebook would be a huge bonus.
it would actually be quite interesting to have the comment section in Sway as it would allow people to better interact with our internal newsletter.
It would be ideal if we could:
- add a comment section whenever in the newsletter we consider efficient (at the end of a section or at the very end of the newsletter)
- add comments both when editing (allowed to authorized people only) and once the newsletter is shared. But this would be two types of commenting options. the first one, i can i magine it being like Word, when you highlight something and then add comments. The second one, would be more as box to add where people can exchange their comments and start a discussion even.
-The comment box should have the option to be approved, deleted if inappropriate and answered even.
when will it be available the comments sections?

I'm starting to use Sway a lot. I feel the number one real missing feature, IMHO, is comments. I think both at the section level and at the entire Sway level would be good. I do like the idea of just dropping a comments box into the Sway. That would solve it at any level / place the author desires.
Please, please, please, add a comments and discussion option!
It would be great to have a card that allows people to drop a comment in, then would be added to a list (much like this comment and comments thread in this forum). It could be used to ask for recommendations on the next instalment of a newsletter, or to let people have a conversation around what they have just seen.

That is one way in which you could drop your articles online for free without charge. Go there and post your articles without paying a dime!
It would be extremely valuable to allow viewers to comment also within sway (the specific element)

Comment on entire sway, available for author and viewer is enough as a start I would say.
Yeah, you're right. it'd be great. I actually always read all reviews on topics or stuff I am interested in. For example, before I chose https://supremedissertations.com I read a lot of information about similar services.

im new to sway please help? how do put comments in my sway? i want people to be able to comment on my sway pleased help asap?
I see Sway as being quite powerful in terms of creating in class workbooks for training. It would be great if comment cards can be added for each piece of content in Sway. This way, instructional designers can give space for participants to put in their comments, thoughts and notes as it relates to various parts of the content within that Sway. It would be great, if we could then email a pdf version with their particular comments of that participant back to them when the class is over. If Microsoft forms were embedded, then it would be good if the data they entered including data from reports be included in that pdf as well.

I would prefer to have comment box within sway as feedback can be viewed for each page.
Please continue to consider adding comments to Sway. My enterprise is restrictive in that they do not allow us to publish to docs.com so that is not an option for us. I would love to be able to leave feedback to the creator of the Sway and let them know what sparked my interest or have a debate around an interesting topic within the organization. I think this would add some major value to Sway.
Sway looks like a really great tool...until one tries to export it for printing or working on it offline...then it really falls short. Can't see it replacing PP and/or Word for these reasons. I'm writing a short story that requires constant editing (kind of "sudden idea" thing)...this could be on an airplane or wherever. Without wifi, I am not able to access Sway. I had been using PP (mainly because I'm comfortable with it) and exported my story into Sway...now I can't move it back. It would seem that as a Office 365 product developments in one would be able to move back and forth.
I'm also planning to use Sway for training documentation. Having a comment card to allow others review and suggest changes would be useful.
*comment on content within Sway
*commentors would be both authors and viewers
*comments to be visible to authors and submitter only (don't want it turning into a long comment thread)

I would really love a comment card, so that I can drop it onto my travel reports so that people can comment on that particular activity / day or holiday.

A couple of things I would like for my Sways - apologies if other people have suggested them.
For marketing purposes, I need to know how many people are looking at my Sways and how often. This is really important to me.
I would also like feedback on what I am showing. Some sort of comments page that can be added (if need be, a simple link to an external site could work, though I'd much rather have something built into the Sways)
Any help or suggestions for either of those would be appreciated.
I would like to use Sway to present a project news and I'd like my colleagues to write comments below a pic or a text, or a the end of a page ... I don't want to open a "big" tool like Wordpress for just a little "news" page...
