To be able to create a presentation for my software that is not linear to demonstrate my company's product
The company I work for has software that is multi-tiered and the graphical nature of Sway is marvelous. I have a vision that could put together a marvelous presentation that could take an interactive tour of my software with levels that are as independent as my software. Sway I see now is linear but I see a 'coming soon' feature that possibly shows something different. The tiers of my software would be great to preview on Sway where I could go up and down as I presented so I can go DEEPER into my product.
Great suggestion! We definitely have some exciting plans for nonlinear Sways that you can see a teaser of in our “Coming Soon” section when choosing a Structure (or with some of the Sways We Love: https://sway.com/wood_burning, https://sway.com/red_panda, https://sway.com/state_flags). We want to make these more sophisticated before we let our users start authoring in them though, which is why they aren’t currently available. Thanks for the scenario suggestion! It helps us prioritize our work in what we will deliver soon. :)

I am new to Sway and wondered how far away a non linear feature is. My need is reasonably simple and may be achievable some other way. Essentially I want to produce a software performance report that has a dashboard like front page with 6 or seven "tiles" that show throughput, error rates, response time, etc and behind each tile there are one or more cards which are graphs and textual comments. Currently content created in MS Word and loads nicely into Sway but just need that one "dashboard card" that links it all together. Wider context, it needs to be able to be automated as it will be produced every month for large number of clients i.e. handcrafting each one will not scale for what I want.
