Hi! Our internal communciations loves Sway and we want to use it more. We're interested in hearing how other teams are using Sway for employee communications. Please share!

Our company used it once to present and announce something from the marketing team. I think that if the Sway app was in the Office Pro Plus suite then people might use it more for uses like internal communication. But we still see a lot of people defaulting to PowerPoint because it's installed, familiar and therefore comes to mind before Sway.
I think it is a good alternative and brings together online content easily, without too much time to design the final piece.
What do others think?

Hi Erin,

 

I'm a member of the Sway team and we'd love to learn more about how your team is using Sway for internal communications, including which requests you all have for new features and any pain points. I just direct messaged you my email, would love to hear from you. 

 

Thanks,

Preeta Willemann

Hi, we are doing a pilot in our Finance Unit, and began to issue Sway update communications as part of the change management activities in our ERP implementation. We used Sway to communicate an update on trainings stage and a social responsibility initiative. The first response from people was good, but we are working in using the Sway to publish a digital bulletin in a touch screen LCD that we acquired. We will provide an update how the digital bulletin experience works
I am making one pager sales sheets for products like Office365 and CRM using Sway. It's a great way to store useful information in a format that isn't intimidating to sales folks.
