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".
(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.

  1. Allow sharing with Office 365 Groups

    Although the sway connector is not available under teams, we could more easily use workarounds if the share option allowed sharing with team group (Office 365 group).
    Please could you make this functionality available ?

      • connect Sway Analytics in Power BI

        I would like to create Power BI reports and dashboards using Sway Analytics as a data source.

        Ideally, I could create reports using analytics from Sways I have created and Sways for which I have author access.

        • Download the corporate font on Sway

          This tool is great ! However, I would appreciate if I could download our corporate font on Sway in order to create our Sway template.

            • Create a Sway app for Microsoft Teams

              We have teams that use a variety of Microsoft O365 apps for a single project. For instance, we have a Sway that people can read through to get information on a training course, and a Planner where folks can looks for issues with that material or make suggestions for updating that material in the future. We have started to use Microsoft Teams and we would like to move to using Teams as the go-to collaborative environment for certain projects. In order to make that work, we would need a Sway App that can be installed within Microsoft Teams so a…

                • Sign in to Sway through OneNote Add-in using company account

                  Dear Team,

                  I really like the Send to Sway add-in function in OneNote. However, when using company Office365 account, I can't sign in to Sway through this add-in. It seems it only supports personal account for this function. Hope it can also work for working or school account!

                  Bests,
                  Claire

                    • Enable editing of Sway on Android via an app

                      Until we can edit and update our Sway on the go and anywhere than this will not be perfect. It would be ideal to take a snap on our camera phone and instantly upload it to Sway for editing. I use my phone more than a laptop/ computer to work so having a Sway app would turn this into a much more user friendly concept

                            *English follows Japanese
                            ■Title(件名):
                            Microsoft Sway の外部共有について、特定の外部ユーザーを指定して共有を行えるようにしてほしい

                            Provide the permission level that allows specifying the external users when sharing Microsoft Sway
                            ***************
                            ■Description(内容):
                            Microsoft Sway で外部共有を行う場合、リンクを知っている人は誰でも共有を行える設定のみとなり、特定の外部ユーザーを指定して共有する機能がありません。そのため、Microsoft Sway の外部共有においても、特定の外部ユーザーを指定して共有を行えるように機能拡充を要望します。

                            When sharing Microsoft Sway with external users, there is only one permission level “Anyone with a link” available. It is not possible to share Sway with specific external users.

                            In order to improve usability, it will be nice if we could specify the external users to share Sway.

                            Thank you for your consideration.

                              If a Sway could be created in a group / within SharePoint, co-workers would be able to access it and they Sway would continue to exist even if the creator were to leave the organisation.

                                  When you share a Sway it does not going into view mode, but edit mode with editing turned off. I just want to share a SWAY, opens into the presentation without the person I'm sharing with having to start it manually.

                                  • Integrating some of the innovation used by Visme in Sway

                                    If you have not heard of visme, take a look at visme.co I was part of one of your 3 day focus groups in Redmond a couple of years back. I had a great time with your Dev team members. I'm happy to see you implemented printing, but also find the visme template tools very easy to create dynamic presentations and documentation. Take a look. I look forward to hearing your thoughts! Lou Kalis - La Crosse Public Library - I.T. Manager

                                    • The ability to add company branded headers and footers to the PDF export

                                      Add the option to include a default website, logo and disclaimer etc. so when clients export Sway to PDF / Word.
                                      Currently, (The logo to the title card doesn't export?) there is no way to brand these exports or give them any identifying marks like a company logo, header or footer.

                                      • undo option in Sway

                                        If I delete a card there should be an option to undo

                                          If you see SWAY (for example, when you click a link), you want to create multiple links that scroll to the title card location.
                                          Is there a way?
