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. 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

  2. to be able to duplicate a section of a sway

    I use the same format for certain parts and I would like to be able to duplicate a section that may consist of a heading, text & image without needing to make a new sway.

  3. Ability to hide cards or sections

    There was an option in the previous version to "hide sections" similar to hiding slides in powerpoint. Can that option be brought back?

    It makes it easier to customize a Sway per targeted audience

  4. Embed PDF in Sway

    Hello. I would like to be able to embed a PDF in a Sway. Not the content from the PDF, but embed the PDF so the information can be consumed in its native format. Thanks!

  5. 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. :)

  7. to keep the format of a "Copied" Sway and just change the photos

    I already have a format that I like and "editing" (via a Duplicate Sway or Saved Template) will still mean that I need to change the photo, change the "Focus point" and delete the previous Image card.

    Is there any way to just change the photo and keep the formats?

  8. I would love to see an Undo Feature added.

    It was my first time visiting Sway & I accidentally X'd out a feature that I cannot find to re-add to save my life! Undo would allow me to go back a step and correct my mistake, that so far I have found no way to fix. Searching for that feature (options for suggestions when adding pictures) has been fruitless so far. The actual options we have for view are very limited, and I don't see this as a settings option at this time. I don't know how to bring it back and I really preferred it to be there.…

  10. Automatically generate captions from photo EXIF data

    I use Sway to share photo albums with family. My workflow is:
    1. Create album in OneDrive
    2. Add captions to each photo (this becomes EXIF title field in photos)
    3. Use Windows Photos app to generate Sway.

    I would like Sway to automatically generate captions if they are available in the EXIF data.

  12. Embed CodePen content into Sway

    I would like to be able to embed CodePen content into a Sway. Teaching any kind of Web Design course at uni is very difficult without some kind of code snippet being able to be embedded. CodePen (codepen.io) would be the best.

    They give iFrame embed code with any new pen and it should just "work" if MS permits it.

  15. WYSWYG Predictability in Creating Sway

    Creating a Sway for me is quite time-consuming. Adding the pictures and text I never know how it's all going to look even when I click Design. Therefore I need to play it numerous times. There must be a way to standardize this at least offer a standardization option which limits how they Sway looks and acts - yet is very predictable. It takes me far longer to create a Sway than PPT becasue of the squirelly nature of it all.

    I have also found both in creating and playing Sway the webapp freezes randomly. This is very ******* my…

  17. Adding Pictures

    It would be nice to have the ability to copy and paste images into the background tiles. You are currently not able to take an image from a document and put it in your sway.

  18. Automatic scrolling time

    Have an automatic scrolling time by card type (Title, Text, Picture...) and not global on the whole Sway. Indeed displaying a title for 15 seconds is not necessary if then it is the time necessary to read a next card with longer text.

  20. changing the SWAY default title picture ?

    I would like to change the SWAY default title picture in the newsletter template and I really cannot make it. I clicked on the title card, on the"Details" button and then tried both dragging and deleting it but none of the two works. Could you please provide guidance?
