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.

Sway for iPad & iPhone (iOS)
Do you use Sway’s iOS app? We’d love to hear your feedback on the Sway for iPad & iPhone page.

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

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".

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.

      • eDiscovery & Administrative Management of Sways

        https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Sway/eDiscovery-amp-Administrative-Management-of-Sways/m-p/288723#M281

        Today:
        •Sway activities are available in the Audit Log of the S&C
        •Sways are held in a blob storage in Azure, so are not stored in Exchange or SharePoint
        •Because Sways are not in the purview of Exchange or SharePoint, you cannot place them on eDiscovery holds or capture them in content searches
        •No PowerShell module exists that can manage Sways from a tenant admin perspective, like Whiteboard.
        •Additionally, because they are not stored in Exchange or SharePoint, and there is not a PowerShell module, you cannot transfer ownership of a Sway(s) to another user.

            • Enable to display closed captions of videos automatically

              In my understanding, currently we have to pause a video and turn closed caption on for watching closed captions but I think it is not so good as presentation experience. Please add settings for automatically displaying closed captions like "cc_load_policy=1" in YouTube.

              • Add Hardware Acceleration to the Sway App

                It would be really nice if you could add hardware acceleration capability to the Sway application. The app starts to really drag under a lot of photos.

                • Microsoft to allow users to decide what they want to embed into Sway (I want to include Desmos and others want something else)

                  I tried to embed an application to find Sway only allows a limited number of applications. Instead of defaulting to a 'we block you :)' position, default as you can work with our tool to do what you want using these guidelines.

                  • Embed vanity urls

                    I have an Excel file on the corporate Sharepoint directory. I want to embed it to my sway but cannot because apparently, its a vanity url. It would be great if support could be added to embed vanity url's.

                      • Hyperlink Images

                        Hej
                        I'd love to create a simple landing page with various offers. Instead of a link-list to the details I would like to use images/icons that the user can click to navigate to another sway or service.

                        Please just allow to change the navigation target from clicking on an image to either "view in fullscreen" as it is default now, or "navigate to: URL/Sway", so we can use images as hyperlinks.

                        Thanks

                        • Ribbon UI & UX for Microsoft Sway.

                          Ribbon is a great UI with lead to great UX why do not use it?

                          especially when our muscle brain remembers office UI better and removes the needs to learn a new interface.

                          Moreover, more features can be added with ribbon UI and are easier to discover with the new simple Ribbon UI

                          • Enable the same sharing options as in Forms

                            Would be good to have some standard across the products instead of having different options for each tool, especially as Forms and Sway are quite similar in some ways. This would definitely help increase the user experience across the O365 platform.

                            • VISUAL LINK

                              How can I choose what image displays in my visual link? When I sent out my first newsletter it displayed the background from my first heading which I liked. Now it is displaying a generic image, and not my first heading image.

                                Support for glb/gltf is mandatory as well as fbx, obj and stl

                                  I really, really wish there is support of panoramas in Sway. This should include 360C photos as well as "normal" wide panoramas. Like in Google Photos or Flickr

                                    • Integrate Google Analytics Code

                                      I would like to add the Google Anyltics tracking code.
                                      Adding the UA Code for my google Analytics profile, like Tumblr is doing it, would be a great way.

                                      • Sway to be stored in O365

                                        If an employee creates a new Sway from Office 365, the default location should be in a location that is manageable by the O365 Admins. Sway content needs to be treated just like any other business content.

                                        • automatically display picture captions next to picture

                                          Captions pictures should display automatically next to the picture. Do not require viewer to click the picture to see the related caption.

                                            Almost all picture captions are displayed next to the picture (or on the picture). There are some exceptions (for example, when the picture takes the whole screen, users will have to scroll slightly. Or if the picture is part of something interactive, there’s a button to reveal the caption). Are you concerned about the image location not being shown unless the user clicks the image (the link of the site where the picture was obtained)? Let us know in the comments!
