Sway

Welcome to Sway’s Suggestion Box!

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 regularly review the ideas and incorporate them into product planning discussions. We will read all suggestions and respond to every suggestion that gets at least 20 votes. We may also merge and rename suggestions for clarity.

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 boxes, 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.

Need technical support? Please visit the Microsoft Community or the Office Support site.

Standard Disclaimer
(Our lawyers made us put this here ;-) )
Please note that the Sway Suggestion Box is moderated and is a voluntary participation-based project. If your submission is not a product feature suggestion it may be removed. Please do not send any novel or patentable ideas, copyrighted materials, samples or demos which you do not want to grant a license to Microsoft. Your submission is subject to the UserVoice License Terms.

Thanks for joining our community and helping improve Sway!

I would like...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

    • The ability to create corporate-branded templates

      My organisation (global top 500) wants to start using Sway to share reports and ideas internally. However, all of our communications needs to conform with our corporate branding i.e. specific colour schemes and fonts. We want to be able to create a Corporate template to make available to our employees like we do with PowerPoint templates. If we can't do this, we can't use Sway, which is a huge shame.

                    Sharing / privacy settings are constantly resetting, inconsistently applied, and generally aggravating. Please fix this.

                    I can't tell you how many times I've RE-APPLIED settings concerning duplication, sharing, and so on, only to find them DESELECTED at some later date. I don't know what's up with this, but please completely overhaul these settings, put them in a central spot in the UI, and show their state of activation in the thumbnail view.

                    Please fix this.

                    • Ability to Size the Header Image within the Layouts

                      In most images in Sway you have the option to "showcase" or change the size of the image in general but in the Header Image you cannot. It takes up more space than I want in some cases and I'd like to be able to size it also. Changing the layout does not solve my issue.

                      • Some Ideas that could be useful

                        Sway it is pretty easy to use, and I am not a person too familiar with programming and anything like that, but I have some ideas for you guys,

                        1. Put a Social Networks buttons like Facebook, LinkedIn, etc.
                        2. Put a comment box or feedback to the author
                        3. It would be awesome if we had a little bit more fonts.
                        4. Also more layouts.

                        I would like to congratule you guys I like this app very much and also if something comes to my mind while I work on it I'll be make sure to tell you about…

                        • To be able to link within a Sway.

                          The ability to link within a Sway. So for example you could create a page with links to spots within the Sway, like either a table of contents. This will allow more flexibility for navigating through a Sway. Besides ease of navigation to go to a particular spot, this will also allow reinforcing conceptual schemata if that is relevant to the topic being presented.

                          • I would like sway to be embed into email for marketing use. This programme has so much it could offer.

                            A way to embed or copy the HTML of the sway so I can use it for marketing newsletters. even copying the HTML for use with Dotmailer etc would be amazing.

                              • Sway Apps should added more Features !

                                Hello Microsoft Sway Team,
                                I am using my sway from their web Apps, viewer's counts aren't aviable using from web apps. I prefer add more features concerning viewers counts/stats such as daily/monthly as well as region wise viewer's count.
                                I hope the issues will be resolve ASAP.
                                Thank You.

                                • Change the autoplay time for each individual card rather than one time for all cards text can take longer than titles.

                                  Having one time for autoplay for all cards makes reading the title for 20 seconds boring for our users but then reading large text for 20 seconds makes it difficult. Being able to set the time for a title to 5 seconds but a text card for 30 would be advantageous.

                                    • Allow viewers to identify the owner of a Sway

                                      When a Sway view link is shared we need the ability for viewers to identify the owner of the Sway. This is especially important since sways can be duplicated and re-shared. It is also important to ensure that if we find an out of date Sway that is made broadly available to our company we can identify the owner for updates.

                                      • Support for Google My Maps

                                        Can you please add support for Google's My Maps embedding.
                                        You support normal Google Maps, but I have created my own maps, and I want to present them with Sway.
