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.

  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.

  4. 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…

  6. 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. 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.

  9. About “Start from topic” in Sway

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    Sway の "トピックから開始" について
    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.

  10. About the Sway logs

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    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.

  11. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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…

  18. 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.

    Viewing Sway on a smartphone

    [フォームの入力] をタップする項数を減らしてほしいです。
    また、[フォームの入力] をタップしないと表示されない場合、Sway を閲覧したユーザーにそこに回答するフォームがあることに気づかれない可能性もあるので、PC と同じように埋め込まれた状態で表示されることを要望します。

    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…

  20. 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. :)
