        I’m surprised that Microsoft is comfortable using the word “Share” in a 365 application that is so limited and is so different from the same feature in other 365 apps.
        While I recognize that the architecture open Sway saved files does not go through SharePoint and one drive, if suede has a share button, it should share the same way as other 365 apps such as PowerPoint, etc

        This is not done! Very disappointed to find you've just added a thumbnail to the link. I want the full Sway experience to be included in the email body. When is this likely to happen?? Otherwise my comms team will continue to cut and paste static pictures into their emails.

        I don't think this is "Done". I believe the request was to embed the Sway into an email...but this new "solution" just creates an image link instead of a text link. It is still just a link to the presentation.

        Many email clients block links and most people do not want to click on a link because it often leads to malware.

        What would be really useful would be to have the Sway actually embeded, so that it can be viewed in the email...with no linking.

        I agree with many of the comments here--to embed Sway directly in the email would be far more useable than the visual link.

        Sway should be able to be embedded into an email rather than just clicking on the link. This will give me a way to send video email.

        Has this been corrected yet? Such a pain to not be able to put a Sway into an email. I love Sway otherwise.

        Has there been an update ie: fix, yo this problem. I was hopeful that sway would be a great new tool for my newsletter but no go if I can't attach completed file to email. I too have lots of people that do not have fb or other social media, only use email. HELP MS!

        Any update on sending out newsletters via email w/o link. Great program but agree can't just send a link. Also when I do send a link it opens sway not the created version. All videos and tutorials show completed projects. I just created an entire newsletter and can't share via email :(.

        Agree with the others---Sway NEEDS to have the option to put whole newsletters in email messages or I'm done as a user.

        Hi Was a happy Picassa user could e mail it.
        Had great hopes for SWAY. Great programme BUT my older friends are not on FACEBOOK etc. just email.
        So now no sharing. We are not all on the new media If it worked why change it.
        Email me when you get it sorted.
        Until then Bye Bye Sway

        Please provide sharing as email attachment ot enable me to use SWAY. Otherwise will find other medium. Shame!

        Not being able to email a Sway presentation without having to click on a link is absolutely critical to me. Otherwise, this program, while very good, is TOTALLY USELESS.

        I'm a new sway user and I have created a sway of baby photos. I would like to email it to family and friends. How can I do this?

        The first thing I looked for after watching Sway tutorial was ability to send a newsletter included in the email, and seeing that many people are looking for this feature, and sadly, it is not there yet :(

        I agree! I like Sway a lot, but in order to utilize it I must be able to put it in an email without sending my readers to click on a link!

        From what I gather, this has been suggested several times from users, for several years now. The Sway Team always responds "thank you, we'll note the suggestion" and that's it.

        Adding my request for sway as an immediate access newsletter in email. Clicking on a link dramatically cuts down readership.
