Sway Suggestion Box

Welcome to Microsoft Sway’s Suggestion Box by UserVoice!

To help us build the best version of Sway, we have partnered with UserVoice, a third-party service, to hear your ideas and suggestions. We will read all the suggestions, and we regularly review the ideas and incorporate them into product planning discussions. Please note that the suggestion box is moderated and is a voluntary participation-based project. Please do not send any novel or patentable ideas, copyrighted materials, samples or demos for which you do not want to grant a license to Microsoft. Your use of the portal and your submission is subject to the UserVoice Terms of Service & Privacy Policy, including the license terms.

How it works
• Create a user account if you want to add a new suggestion or vote on existing suggestions.
• Select one of the feedback forums listed.
• Check out the ideas others have suggested and vote on your favorites.
• Search for your suggestion and if you can’t find something similar, you can submit your own.
• Keep suggestions focused on a single idea per post and limited to 25 words or less.
• When you post an idea to our forum, others will be able to subscribe to it and make comments.

In addition to the Sway Suggestion Box, we have…
Show us your Sway
Have you created a Sway that you think is awesome? Then share it with others by posting a link to it in our Show us your Sway page. We might even feature it on www.sway.com.

  1. Immersive Reader for Sway

    The Immersive Reader found in Word and OneNote and other places is amazing. Please bring the immersive reader to Sway. As a presentation and teaching tool, this would substantially improve the accessibility of Sway content. The translation and dynamic visual formatting features would be most valuable.

  2. Whitelist Request (University Tenancy Level)

    At Griffith University we are wanting to embed our number of standard web applications as well as our own internal applications within our Microsoft Sway content. Currently you get an error stating "Sorry, we do not currently support this site...". Our MS 0365 support team have advised that they cannot add any applications to our white-list for Sway.

    We have found that the white-list of allowed embed-able content in Sway is controlled as one global list rather than administered per tenancy. This level of control to allow each tenancy determine their own white-list will allow organisations to cater to their…

  5. Manual Option To Add Font, Color, Background, Theme, etc

    I had moments ago described an issue with building a Sway. When the text and graphics are put together it's all entirely random. There needs to be consistency and documentation to this process. THIS IS NOT THE SAME ISSUE.

    When creating a Sway not only are the options limited (right side) but what is available I find utterly confusing. This could be organized far better such as picks: Select - background, font, color, whatever... The one click option to change is like everything else in the app totally random so I am forever clicking. Usually I end up liking a…

  7. About the Sway logs

    Sway の監査ログについて
    About the Sway logs


    ■Description(内容):
    この度 Sway の監査ログが廃止になったというアナウンスがあった。
    SharePoint など多くのログが取得できるなか、Sway のみログが取得できないとなるとユーザーへの説明ができない。
    Sway は SharePoint と操作感も似ているため、SharePoint と同等のログが取得できるようにしてほしい。
    同等のログが困難であれば、少なくとも作成と削除のログだけでも取得できるように機能を追加することを希望します

    There has been an announcement that Sway logs are to be discontinued.
    It is difficult to explain to users that even though many logs, such as SharePoint etc, can be obtained, only Sway cannot.
    Since Sway feels similar to use to SharePoint, please make it possible to get logs for it in the same way.
    If it is difficult to add such logs, at lease make it so that it logs creation and deletion events.

  8. data storage to move within EU

    Today our sway is not stored within EU, that forces us to block Sway, so we can't use it! Please move the storage of sway for EU installations to servers within EU.

  10. Show who has seen the sway

    Hi,

    I would like to have the possibility to see that people from my organization have seen my sway.

  11. Screen Recording

    I found I had no way to use Sway to record the screen in animated way for a presentation that required it to be filmed/pre-shot. In the end I used VLC media player to record the screen. It worked well enough but would have been streamlined with the aid of Sway built in screen recorder or animator. :)

  12. clickable table of content on top

    Have a clickable table of content on top iso only the navigation icon - this would enable me to use sway to create modern training manual, ie users can see the headers of my subsections and navigate quickly to the content they need.

  13. Give the option to remove security warning pop-up.

    This week, any links embedded in my Sways that are clicked on bring up a pop-up security warning regarding leaving the site and going to a new one. Now, all Sways that I have embedded in my WordPress site will not open any embedded links because it cannot deal with this pop-up. As the owner and creator of the Sways, I am confident that I am not entering any dangerous links (most of them are to my own SharePoint) and I cannot afford for my customers to have this annoyance. Please, at least, give organisations the option of removing this…

  14. Image links to work in mobile view

    We have a grid view with some images with links. This works well on a desktop view, but in the mobile view the images shrink and the links disappear and no longer work. It would be great to still be able to have that functionality in the mobile view. Perhaps the way to do that would be to add an extra type of card that does not expand the images when users click on them, but instead takes you to the image link. Thank you.

  15. Alignmet options.

    Hi.

    It would be great if you can align the text like in Word. Aligment options like justify or align to the right.

    Thanks.

    Forms のフォームを埋め込んだ Sway を iOS、Android のスマートフォンで閲覧すると、PC のように埋め込まれた状態で表示されず、[フォームの入力] をタップし別タブを開かないとフォームに回答できません。

    If you view a Form embedded in a Sway using an iOS or Android smartphone, it doesn’t display in the same way as it does on PC, and you can’t respond unless you tap on “Input to form” and open it in a separate tab.
    Please reduce the number of items for which you need to tap “Input to form” for.
    Also, in cases where you have to tap “Input to form” to…

  18. We need Scientific Writing text! Or at least, have the option for superscript/subscript.

    I can see sway as a powerful tool for online learning/self-learning, particularly during this pandemic. However, I am rather disappointed to find out that I cannot write chemical formula in the text box.

  20. *.Padlet.ORG whitelist request for University

    Here at the Queensland University of Technology in Australia, we use the Padlet tool in our Learning and Teaching tool mix.

    In the last year, Padlet.com changed their business model from allowing multiple free 'Padlets' to only 3, resulting in schools and universities such as ourselves needing to procure "Institutional" licenses for Padlet - this was no problem, and also allowed us to have a custom subdomain in the *.padlet.ORG space.

    Free-account Padlets (Padlet.COM) embed with no issues in Microsoft Sway. *.Padlet.ORG, however, DO NOT EMBED.

    error:
