Sway Suggestion Box

Update: Microsoft will be moving away from UserVoice sites on a product-by-product basis throughout the 2021 calendar year. We will leverage 1st party solutions for customer feedback. Learn more

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.

  5. embed a sway in Teams channels

    I'd love to be able to embed a sway in a teams channel. So that it functions - not as a link.

  6. 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…

  7. 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…

  9. Save Sway file in SP

    Sway is a great tool to easily create beautiful user manuals, but we can not store them in SP for collaboration and maintain access to files in case the creator left the organization. I would like to see the possibility to save a Sway like a Word document or PowerPoint presentation

  10. Organising multiple Sways

    Sways are really useful for sharing info and video clips with parents and children during lockdown. We are building up a collection of them, and sometimes want to share them with other practitioners who work with families elsewhere. It's hard to organise them though, with no folders or organising system - what's the solution?
    thanks, Charlotte

  11. Add a PDF as an attachment

    While it is nice to be able to import a PDF into the Sway content, I really just want to add a PDF as an attachment for others to click and view. Please make this happen! As an educator, I often have PDFs that teachers and parents need access to open and print.

  12. Endnotes/Footnotes that are linked

    Sway templates have little footnotes/endnotes sections which is great. But it would be great if you could make endnotes appear in a familiar format, like superscript. It would also be helpful if you could more easily make these link to their location in the endnotes tile.

  13. More design tools for spacing

    It would be nice to be able to define the white space a little more within Sway. We are starting to use Sway for our internal newsletters. As the newsletter editor, I created a template, but the Creative Director needed to approve it and wants more space between cards.

    I would like the option to add a border to the Heading image. Having more overall control of how the Heading property appears would be great!

  18. About “Start from topic” in Sway

    About “Start from topic” in Sway


    ■Description(内容):
    "Sway へようこそ" (https://sway.office.com/my) のページで "トピックから開始" に該当する箇所がありませんでした。
    "言語の変更" より、"English (United Kingdom)"、"English (United States)" を選択すると、"Start from topic" が表示されます。
    日本語を含めて他の言語を選択しても、"トピックから開始" に該当する箇所が表示されないことから、英語以外の言語には現時点で対応してないないようです。
    日本語を含めて、英語以外の言語でも対応するように要望します。

    On the “Welcome to Sway” Japanese page (https://sway.office.com/my) there is no “Star from topic”.
    If you use “Change language” and select “English (United Kingdom)” or “English (United States)”, “Start from topic” is displayed.
    Since “Start from topic” isn’t shown for other languages, including Japanese, it seems it is not supported in languages other than English.
    Please add support for other languages.

  20. 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.
