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. Sway Enterprise Content Management - When User Leaves The Organization

    Hello,

    I would like to raise a Sway limitation related to enterprise content management when users leave the organization.

    As we know, Sway users that are added to the recycle bin can expect all their associated content to be permanently deleted after 30 days, with no path for restoration.

    We know that when a user leaves the organization, where shared accounts cannot be used, the only known way to save the content from deletion is to have the original user manually transfer the ownership of his content to another user, before the 30-day deletion policy is fulfilled.

    This approach is…

  6. 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

  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.

  8. 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…

  9. 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…

  11. bullets

    Bullets keep appearing black even when the font is white. So the bullets can't be seen in the background and there is no way to change the bullet color.

  12. font

    Hi, I know that an improvement has been made to Customize the size of the font but it changes the size for all the pages/slides. Is there a way to add the feature where changes to the font size can be made per slide instead of entire presentation?

  13. 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

  16. personalization

    I would be nice if I could add personalization fields. So for example, when someone opens my Sway newsletter it would say 'dear (name)'. It would also be awesome if you could connect a CRM system for that.

  17. sway name

    Having an actual filename to help organize a Sway would be very helpful.
    As I am developing a sway, or testing it with the audience, I don't wan the main heading of the Sway to be Topic Rev. 0, and Topic rev. 1, etc...

  18. Agreguen funciones de justificado y centrado para hacer de los documentos de Sway algo más atractivo.

    Sway necesita funciones como las de Word o Powerpoint para hacer documentos mejor preparados, ya que las opciones que tiene se sienten muy mínimas.

  20. 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.
