Introducing Sway

Sway is a new browser-based application for presenting ideas. UC San Diego employees have access to Sway through OneDrive.

A 'Sway' is a presentation made from 'cards.' You can sort these cards for easy reorganization of content. Cards can contain headers, text and media. Media content can be added from your own device or you can embed content from a number of online resources, including:

  • OneDrive (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and PDF documents)
  • Flickr
  • Google Maps
  • Vimeo
  • Vine
  • YouTube
  • See Microsoft's Sway support page for an up-to-date list of supported sites.

You can invite others to collaborate on the presentation or simply share your finished Sway with a link.

Getting started

  1. Log in to OneDrive for Business.
  2. Under My apps, choose Sway.
  3. Choose Create New or Import to start a presentation.
