Save Sways to OneDrive
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.
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.

It's certainly sharing and also succession planning: making sure your colleague has given you a copy and you can then do something with it.
Similar to Forms, we should be able to save Sways as part of an Office 365 group. This means that when someone leaves the organisation this content is not lost. Permissions to view/edit the Sway would then be with the owners/members of the Office 365 group.
This feature (with the option to assign it even to Sharepoint team / comm sites) is desperately needed to reliably roll out Sway in enterprise context. As someone mentioned before, centralized and managable storage location is one reason, advanced permission managament is another.
Totally agree with this suggestion.
As with any type of file, I want to create a library of files and content that several people can access.
And I want to be able to put them in folders etc
At the moment, ALL my other files are on OneDrive / Sharepoint... and its just the Sways that are stuck elsewhere.
The only way we can find them as a team is searching for a link in our inboxes!!!
Why can't they be saved into a folder like every other file?
Really really frustrating
Makes zero sense
I have shared a model shoot, how can she save the photos from sway
I'd like it to play in my sharepoint but can't seem to get around the access issue though both the sharepoint and sway were created in my organization's microsoft account, not a personal microsoft account.
Two reasons (and I vote SharePoint OR OneDrive, not OneDrive exclusively):
1. Permissions! Would love to create a Sway with confidential data, but as it stands, anyone in my company with the link can access. The only option is password. Again, passwords could be shared. I need this tied to user access.
2. Centralized storage options. If I create a Sway for a team outside my own, I want to be able to save it on THEIR SharePoint site so they can edit/update as needed, and not come to me!
We had someone leave the company who did all the newsletters for the company on Sway. We moved their OneDrive files, but forgot about the Sway files. All the links to the old newsletters died and we lost them all. Not cool!
What if our school's Office 365 server is changing? We understand that our OneDrive files will migrate, but what about our Sways?

Even if this could be a link from OneDrive, that would be great. We recently met with some teachers that were starting to use Sway. However, they became very frustrated when they had problems finding the Sways that were previously created. They did not understand that Sways are only stored on the Sway website. They found this not intuitive.
Hi, I am not very savvy on the computer . I wanted to send many pics from my saved pictures to my web site.
When I created an album I then tried to attach to my email and that's when it said I must upload to sway or onedrive.
I then created an account with sway and I can't seem to attach the album from sway to my email message.
Should I have used onedrive instead?
We use Sway corporately and I now have 50 or so that I've created personally. It's getting to be a nightmare managing them without a OneDrive style filing system. I know of several businesses that are now using Sway internally that would consider rolling it out on a larger scale were this possible.
Would like to use Sway for some manuals. Multiple authors are creating the content but no one should be the one "to own" the content. If the author deletes the sway, it's gone. What happens, when people leave the company and still are owners of some Sways?
Has this been made possible yet? I would love for my students to be able to save their sway files to a shared OneDrive as well. It would open many possibilities!
I want to be able to save into Classroom. As an educator I am trying to have the students do a Sway and we use classroom to turn in everything-- there is no way to easily share their Sway in classroom. The only way I think this will happen is to have them put a link onto a word document and then turn-in the word document. This just creates extra steps for the students as well as the teacher to correct them.

Why has this still not been incorporated two years after the original query??

I need to share my presentations with staff -- at the moment I am having to send multiple emails, with sway links on them. I need my presentations to be saved to onedrive so they can be put in various different topic folders -- I do not understand why this is not already a feature??!!
help, my Dad created folders with sway.com and put them on facebook but now they are not there. How does he get them back?

Saving to OneDrive for Business allows for versioning, etc. What happens when a user leaves the company? What happens to their Sway files? The current approach adds more complexity to enterprise use.

I like having everything in one place
