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.

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".

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.

  6. Crop/edit photos in addition to specifying focus points

    Cropping isn't just about picking what shows up in the Sway stream, it's also about eliminating/censoring parts of the picture so they can't be seen even when you drill in to the photo. When picking photos from one of my online accounts, it's super bandwidth intensive and time consuming to download a 1-5MB photo, open it in MSPaint etc, crop it, re-save it with a different filename, and upload it. Focus points are great, but they solve a different problem than cropping.

  8. Give Sway Title without Entering Into Title Box

    We have designed a masthead for our Sway newsletter. We don't want a title over it, but still want to give the Sway a title.

  9. Use Flow to create a daily Sway

    Leverage the new Flow app to auto generate a daily Sway. I'm thinking of a Feedof5 where I curate content from my top 5 influencers, newly published content.

    Thanks for the suggestion! We are pleased to announce that we now allow you to add audio with an audio card. This is the first step towards allowing narration and linking it with a picture. If you’d like to see any additional audio features, please open new suggestions to help us prioritize our future improvements in this space. :)

  12. Embedding (public) Facebook posts

    I'm preparing a Sway about the use of Social Media and it would be very nice to be able to embed public Facebook posts (e.g. from FB pages) similar to the ability to embed Tweets.

  13. Search 'my' Flickr photos

    It's great that I can search Flickr for images, however unless I've tagged my images as CC I can't find them. If I could log in to Flickr and have my images and albums right there in the images pane then I could get my images straight into my sways without having to download them and then re-upload them.

    If you’re signed in using your personal Microsoft account (and not an organization Office 365 account), you should see a button that says “Connect to view your Flikr content.” By connecting this account, you’ll be able to see your images.

  14. Better content management

    At the moment writing text offers very basic functionalities. I would like to have more options to enter text like possibility to change character style (italic, underline, linethrough, double-line).

    Better handling of images in the flow with the possibility to have text adapt around the image and have images positioned in different ways with respect to the text flow. This should be applied to any media actually: twitter posts, videos etc.

  15. Text formatting neceseary for scientific or mathematical equations

    I'm writing a scientific description of metabolic processes, and I'd like to be able to have superscripts and scientific characters (alpha, beta, gamma), multiplication via "dot" symbol etc. For example, I'd like to write -57 kJ * mol-1 and have that formatted automatically by Sway. I suspect that there will be some folks who will want to use Sway to present technical information, and this would be super helpful. Additionally, I'd like to just type things vs. having to use UI to generate the symbols that I want. So for example, I'd like to type delta G prime = -57…

  17. Sway API

    It would be great if Sway offered an API.

    I would LOVE to have tools to make templates or styles and give them out or at least edit my own sways in an advanced mode.

  18. Replace image command

    When adding images to cards it would be nice to have a replace image command. That way when you want to try a different image in your sway design, you don't have to always delete the image and then start a new card and add new media

    Thanks for the suggestion! For the time being, we kind of have this feature for header and title cards. Just drag a new image over the card and it will pop the old picture out into a separate image card and add the new image to the header/title. We’ll continue gathering feedback to see if we should expand this capability like you suggest. :)

  19. Refresh imported file (word, pdf, ...)

    The Import feature is fantastic, ie convert a dull Word document into a live Sway.

    However, quite often, the Word document remains the source and when it is updated i need to create a new Sway.

    Would love to be able to "refresh" input file so that the Sway remains, with its links to others and i don't need to keep deleting the old one when Importing the updated Word content into a new Sway as today.

  20. Track changes by different authors in Sway

    I would like to be able to figure out what changes have been made by others before finalizing the sway.
