Sway Recycle Bin
For student use, ideally we would have a Recycle Bin just in case they accidentally delete the wrong Sway (or their mate does as a prank!). For students to rely on this as a service to produce work for hand in, this is a must!
Sway now has a recycle bin that will save deleted Sways for up to 30 days! Read more about it here: https://blogs.office.com/2016/01/22/sway-recycle-bin-full-screen-mode-in-windows-send-to-sway-add-in-for-onenote-preview-and-more/
so nice how my user voice had a thing where they said oh we don't know what you are talking about but this one works fine.
This is unbelievable. Unacceptable. I didn't delete a file, but just lost a huge amount of work. Three or four cards, with a ton of content. How in the world is there no way of controlling for this type of problem? I didn't delete a card, or try to move it, or do anything--just refreshed the document and poof, it was gone.
Just when I started to like Sway, I wanted to delete all the example presentations which I did not need and mistakenly deleted the one I had just created. Can't believe there is no way to recover the file. Won't use it again soon until this is fixed, already lost too much time with it. Shame
Please consider adding a way to retrieve accidentally deleted projects from SWAY - it's a real bummer not to have this safety net available on an otherwise cool tool.
Shocked to discover there is no way to recover a sway. I just lost an hour of my time because when trying to delete a photo from a sway, I somehow deleted the whole thing instead. There wasn't even a "are you sure you" prompt. That sucked.
This is KEY. I just deleted a project I have worked two straight hours on, a masterpiece. I went to Whole Foods to grab a juice and starting using the iOS app and accidentally deleted. I rushed home certain there would be a restore/trashcan on the web version...NOPE. This is a must.
We haven't had any yet! But we really want to prompt students to use Sway for their online work portfolios, as it stands, if they accidentally deleted their Sway they would have to start again, Which could be a pain before hand in deadlines. Having a deleted Sway area removes the excuse of (the computer just deleted it).
Obviously with Word, PowerPoint, etc We can always recover with "previous versions", so for staff confidence in Sway, it would really be helpful to have the ability to check a recycle (or deleted Sways) bin.
