Embed web content as iFrame in a Sway
I would like to be able to embed an external website inside a sway as content, so you could scroll through that website as part of the sway. This would be use din instructional manuals that are authored as Sway's, but contain small embedded live sites, such as forums or forms or other similar items.
Thanks for the feedback and for sharing with us which scenarios you would find this useful in.
We need Iframe embed from any domain or at least a way to whitelist. the restrictions are rediculous and driving our users away from Inhouse and private/Secure storage platforms.
Yes, we need to be able to embed iFrames into Sway presentations so that we can demo interactive Anatomy quizzes that we've developed, based on BioDigital Human models.

For interactive classroom content, we need to be able to embed iFrames for content such as Google Earth Engine Timelapse and ThingLink.

Using external media in iframes to build a scrolling dashboard-like experience is a must for us. We'd love to use sway instead of building a custom solution for this. The data we need to display is not in BI
I work at a university and we have invested lots of money, time and energy into our own private video streaming service (powered by Kaltura open source video). Getting Sway adopted on my campus is going to be tough/impossible unless it supports video embeds from iFrame or from a Kaltura integration. Youtube is great, but we have thousands of hours of in-house instructional media in Kaltura, and our captioning workflow for accessibility goes through Kaltura. We cannot use Sway (at least for video) without more video embed support.
Personally, I would want to use iFrames to embed interactive content of all sorts (timeline.js, tumult hype files, etc). My guess is that this thread means there's no support for embedding an iframe still?

My idea was to embed content from Office 365 / OneDrive, and in particular the charts and visualizations from SharePoint Online and Power BI. Combining the interactivity of Sway with Power View it would make it an amazing product for delivering reports in an engaging way.
