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. Additional card options

    It would be good to see continued development of card types for additional media. There are only the Heading 1, Heading 2, and Text cards, but a third Heading card might be useful, or perhaps the idea of subtext cards that could be laid on top of other text cards (for placing footnotes, links to resources, or other additional information. It could even be useful to think of cards specifically dedicated to columns (up to 3 on a whole text card perhaps) which could be deliberately dragged and adjusted for width (similar to the comparison card slider). Other kinds of…

  4. Enhanced references - endnotes/footnotes

    We are able to copy and past documents that use references like endnotes/footnotes and the format is great on Sway. What would elevate this would be to have the references automatically linked so users can access the notes directly from the body text. It would also be great to have the capability to hover over a reference and view the note it refers to.

  5. Allow additional text (like bylines) on Title and Header 1 cards

    The title slide only offers one text field, and the caption is hidden if you set a background image. It would be great if you could add a little bit of additional text (date, version, authors, etc.) to give some more context to the title slide.

    Heading 1 cards are equally limited. Since I have to have a Heading 1 card in order to be able to use Heading 2 cards it would be nice if I could put a little more contextual information on the Header 1 card, especially for sways that only require one Header 1 card (single…

  6. drag and drop images within a sway to allow users to interact with the content

    I would like to make my Sways more interactive for use in a learning environment. The ability to drag and drop components allows for mix and match type interactive learning.

    The attached example was developed using Articulate Storyline. It is a more powerful software, but less beautiful and harder to use.

  10. autoplay

    Like many others I'd like videos in Sway to play automatically. I understand it's possible to embed an iframe that support autoplay. Would it be possible to include information about this on the support pages?

  11. Add Columns to Text

    I would like to be able to edit the text into columns or at least a table so that it is easier to compare text--not pictures (I know there is a way to do it with pictures).

  12. Change menu back

    The Office 365 version of Sway was better than the Microsoft personal version. Remix was an obvious button which the students love. Just yesterday, we saw the O365 version now matches the personal version. Please change it back. The O365 version was more user friendly and easier to navigate without a bunch of extra clicks. Personal should have changed to match O365, not the other way around.

  13. Colour choice for links

    Give a colour choice when displaying links to sites and other media platforms. I see when i click on a link it comes up blue , but never stays that way. It would look amazing if they could be a different colour as i always use a black background and electric blue or any other colour REALLY stands out. !!

  14. Let me choose the image to go with my SWAY.

    Sway is excellent but sometimes the core image it pulls to create the visual link is cut off and doesn't look right. (see attached). Can you let me create my own image to attach to a SWAY so it can be correctly formatted? Alternatively, can you auto format the image so it shows the whole one vs truncates??

  15. All Microsoft Word Fonts available in Sway

    All Word Fonts available in Sway.
    This would allow greater flexibility for users to personalise their Sways.
    It's particularly useful for business users who must adhere to brand/design guidelines.

    Gathering Feedback  ·  Sway Team responded

    Thanks for this suggestion. Right now, we do have an audio card (so you can add a file, or record something to add to your Sway).

    Any more information you have is appreciated on how you’d like this scenario to work (ie – does it come from spotify/youtube/a file? should it play the entire time, or just for certain sections? what types of documents would you use this on?)!

    Thanks again!

  20. Select only Accessible themes

    Many government departments are limited to creating accessible documents. It would be nice if our users had an option to select only themes the know meets accessibility requirements based on colour contrasts/text sizes. It would also be nice to have template sets for different organisations.
