I finally created my first Sway, and I can't get it to go public.

 

I found this Support doc, and right away the menu options they show under "Share a Sway from your Organizational Account" don't match what I see, which is:

I can't find where to turn off that "Share with only my organization" toggle. I did test the link on another browser anyway--https://sway.com/8V120NilOAdAyGWV--but it still required a work or school account.

 

I even tried the Docs.com route, but although I changed the default option to go public instead, it still wasn't accessible when I tested that link.

 

What obvious thing am I missing? :)

Hi Becky,

 

I would guess an admin has turned off the external sharing of Sways, as described in here

 

https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Administrator-settings-for-Sway-d298e79b-b6ab-44c6-9239-aa3...

 

We do the same, despite allowing nearly all the sharing functions in OneDrive, Groups and everything else. Sway doesn't have the same capabilities to monitor for data leakage or discover data so doesn;t fit our policy. I know it's in the rapdmap, but for the timebeing it's a disappointing limitation.

Fantastic. I had the power to turn it on myself! (I did check with my Global Admin first just to be sure.) Thank you so much.
