Sway your way to interactive presentations!

Why make a boring PDF that is hard to read on a phone when you can make a Sway? You can reimagine how ideas come to life using Office Sway. You can quickly create and share your thoughts with a variety of multimedia using Sway’s polished, interactive, web-based canvas.

Who can use SWAY?

Professionals will be able to use Sway to save time at work and easily create engaging, eye-catching interactive reports, presentations, and more which flow responsively across all device types. For example, marketing plans/campaigns, blogs, proposals and sales pitches, project plans/updates, brochures/digital fliers, newsletters, weekly /monthly / quarterly / annual reports, training manuals, and so much more.

In education, teachers can use Sway to engage students by creating and sharing interactive lessons and study guides, field trip reports, assignments and class project recaps, which they can also share easily with parents. Many teachers also document their best teaching practices with Sway and share them with colleagues. Students can have fun while learning and stay engaged by using Sway to breathe new life into reports, assignments, projects, study materials, and portfolios.

Roll-out

Microsoft has started rolling out Sway to Office 365 business and education subscribers. Features relevant to business (and education) customers—including simultaneous coauthoring, creating interactive charts and embedding Office documents (such as Excel charts and graphs) are added to the preview version. Sway will initially support English, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese and Spanish, with more coming soon.

Sway

A “Sway” is what we call the canvas you create using Sway, and it’s much more than a document in the traditional sense. It’s built from the ground up for the web and devices. A Sway adapts to fit the device that it’s viewed on, large or small, so your ideas always get the best treatment.

Add your content easily

It is easy to collect your content from a variety of sources right within Sway. Sway shows you the stuff you have stored in the cloud: just tap or click, drag, and drop it right onto your canvas. Built-in content sources include OneDrive, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, your devices, or even embeds for your other content (coming soon!). And we’ll be growing that list over time.

 

Sway’s built-in design engine takes the hassle out of formatting your content by putting all of it into a cohesive layout as you create. This means that from the first word, image, Tweet, or graphic you add, your Sway is already being formed for you.

Working in a SWAY

You can adjust and customize the format Sway has created in easy and intuitive ways. Want a picture to stand out? Don’t worry about exact pixel heights and widths or whether you have the design chops to keep things looking good. Just tap or click the image in your Sway and tap or click the star icons to emphasize it. Sway takes your natural feedback and works its magic almost instantly. Want to rearrange your ideas? Just drag and drop any set of your content where you want, and watch your Sway react.

SWAY will shape the future of productivity for sure.
