Embed content in your Sway

You can embed a wide variety of content — including images, video files, audio clips, and maps — from several web sites in your Sway.

  1. Copy the content’s embed code, which you can find by selecting the Share option or its equivalent. The code should look similar to this: <iframe width="560" height="315"… </iframe>.

  2. Select Cards on the top navigation bar at the top of your Sway.

  3. Select Embed within the Cards pane, then paste your embed code to the new Embed card that appears in the Storyline.

    Note: If you paste a URL (web address) as your embed code, it must contain the secure prefix https:// instead of http:// or your selected content will not be embedded

You can also embed a form or embed an Office document in a Sway.
