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.

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.

  3. sync issues

    I'm using an online Office 365 version of Sway to create a monthly newsletter. I've been doing this for about a year and a half. I've been getting a syncing error message more and more often for the last couple months (see attached screen shot), and it's getting to the point where I can't get anything done. Can you help direct me to a solution? Thanks.

  4. A "new" way to mark words.

    Usually you can choose between a few options when you want specific words to stand out. I've only found a way to make the words thicker or make them "lean", for a lack of a better word.
    I would like if I could mark words by putting a line below them.

    A Sway page layout with ruled lines similar to a notebook for users to be able to type in, or write in with a handwriting option-either with your finger or a stylus!

  6. Templates

    An option for ALL users of Sway, (not just Office 365 users) to integrate interactive CSV formatting to display tabular data for spreadsheet tables and database info. Now, I'm not suggesting implementing the full on Excel program into Sway, but MINIMALLY give users the ability to create tables within the Sway program...similar to what Word offers their users which is the ability to create custom tables within a document. One would think a feature such as this wouldn't be too much of a hassle to incorporate into the Sway program fairly easily...?

  8. Add slugified name for my sway instead of that random name at the end of url. And ability to add html meta tags.

    If you change the publicly shared sway url to something like https://sway.co/{userName}/{slugifiedSwayName} it would be easier to share. And if also we could add html meta tags to make them easier for search engines to crawl and index them, It can be a good replacement for bloggers.

  10. Navigation Bar

    I really enjoy Sway, and it would be quite helpful if we could have a navigation bar template to link different sways together, maybe even allowing for a collapsible navigation bar. I think this feature would allow for many more uses of Sway!! Right now you have to make up a "fake" navigation menu, but it's still pretty clunky.

  11. more than one person to edit at the same time

    I would like to allow a group of students tow work on the same SWAY at the same time the way Google slides allows multiple people to edit at one time. Right now only one person can edit at one time

  18. Change all cards in one go to have the same properties e.g. Focus and Intensity

    When I upload 20 cards all with images - no text - and I want them all to be set to Focus = "All of the image is important" and Size = "Intense", I currently have to do this one at a time.
    I'd like to be able to select all cards and apply the above formatting in one go.

  19. Positioning captions and labels

    Allow Caption text to be positioned relative to a graphic.
    Captions: Above / Below / Side
    Labels: Over the graphic: Top / Bottom / Center

    Reason: Text laid over a graphic can obscure important content.

  20. Improved translation from word to sway

    I like to create my sway by first creating a word document and importing it into sway but figuring out how to do this properly has not been well documented or not specific enough.

    Sway will separate my word document into header cards and text cards while the headers are easily defined by using a larger font in word the rest of my document ends up on one giant text card. I would like to specify when one text card ends and another is created because sometimes i would like to add a picture to go with a certain paragraph.
