      Thanks for the suggestion! Are you able to get your company colors using the color inspiration and color palette picker in Design → Customize? (You can use a picture of your company’s logo to inspire some palettes.) Hopefully this can help in the short-term while we work on enabling a more robust solution for you in the future! We appreciate your feedback. :)

      We have recently added the ability to add custom colors to Sway and pick one to use in various ways in your Sways to help you with branding in business scenarios or any other reason to use an exact color in the Sway. To do that click on Design, then Customize, and you have a button to add a custom color.

      Very soon we will also be rolling out the ability to add a logo to your Sway title.

      Also made available recently is the ability to turn a Sway into a template - you can do that using the Save as Template menu item in the ... menu on the top right corner of Sway.

      Thanks for using Sway and giving us great feedback!

        Hi Bashir,

        Good news - you can do both of these things, at least from a computer or a browser on phones and tablets!

        For the iOS app this is on the backlog.

        To add a YouTube video, get its embed code from the YouTube website, add an Embed card and paste the YouTube embed code to it.

        To upload an audio file, add an Audio card and upload the recorded audio.

        Good luck and thanks for using Sway!

              If you’re signed in using your personal Microsoft account (and not an organization Office 365 account), you should see a button that says “Connect to view your Flikr content.” By connecting this account, you’ll be able to see your images.

              Good point! We'll keep that in mind.

                  Hi Mark,
                  Thank you for the feedback. We are considering using different visual treatments for the image that is being shared. I am interested to hear how you feel about having the Sway brand icon on the image, or perhaps Sway icon with a 'Made by <your name>' , or perhaps even a thumbnail preview of what the Sway looks like if they were to click in to view it.

                  Let us know!
                  Thanks

                    Sorry for the delayed response, and thanks for your detailed account of what was happening (and the screenshots)! We're logging a bug to track the issue and we'll update back once we reach a resolution. As for leaving us feedback without using votes, the best place to have conversational feedback is in the comments chains in this forum because we'll read through the comments of relevant idea submissions when developing a new feature or improving an existing one. You can also submit feedback my sending us a smile or a frown from within Sway.

                                    When you imagine audio in your Sway, is it that you want to add background music, narration, sound clips, or something else entirely? Are these sounds clips saved on your device or somewhere else? Let us know in the comments!

                                        Thanks for the feedback. It’s really an interesting idea! Do you imagine being able to crack open documents and add content from them? What type of content do you want to add? (Pictures? Text? Graphs?) Let us know in the comments!

                                            Interesting idea. It makes sense to create Sway based on the existing Sway you created. Thanks for your feeeback. Do you exclusively create Sways from your iPhone or iPad? If not, you can actually do this already on the web app by using the Duplicate feature.
