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.

  1. the option for a QR code next to the link when sharing.

    Like in Forms, create a QR code for sharing the Sway easier.

  2. Full Customization

    Alright Mr. Sway-Decision-Maker, it's time for a reality check.

    Customization is NEVER a bad idea. Sway seems like I'm being shoehorned into making a crap presentation with a great program. The program shows promise, however I won't be using it in the future unless full customization is implemented. From the other posts I've read, either nobody working on Sway has any idea how to implement that customization (which I don't believe), or they've got their head so far up their assess that they forgot how to let people innovate within a program. I'm currently just trying to add a frame…

    We’re sorry to hear about your frustration. Sway is a new productivity tool striving to reinvent the way people work, and since Sway is still a fledgling product, there are things we’re still working on. That said, we typically follow this model: first, and foremost, we want design decisions to be automatic so that our customer isn’t obligated to spend copious amounts of time on fine grain details (for example, Sway will automatically crop your image). We came up with this automatic system by working with professional designers to try and find something that is broadly appealing. However, we know it doesn’t fit everyone, so we offer a set of overrides to help users tweak their Sway (in this same example, this would be the feature Focus Points). Finally, we want to allow customization of those overrides (in this same analogy, this would be the ability to manually crop the…

  3. Working Title

    I Use sway to send to customer after visit with main goal to show customer example of workflows. I would like to duplicate a Sway, make some modifications and send a tailor made version to the customer. Because each Sway has the same Heading it is not even slightly possible to manage Sways (with the same name).

    I Would like to be able to add a 'working title'. This title should only be visible to moderator - so not to customer! - I then can give the Sway a for me meaningfull name.
    Also It would be great to be…

  4. Digital Inking

    I love Digital Inking and would like Sway to support it for quick drawing, graph, math and why not able to write on the go.

    Also support for different colors of pen ink.

  5. a Translation feature - very interested to use Sway for a school newsletter. i.e. English to Spanish, etc.

    Word on Office 365 has this feature, and I would like for Sway to have this feature. Does this exist currently? Is this a possibility?

  8. A Sway web design app

    I would use Sway if it's output could be imported into website designs, or if it could be used to create them directly. The way it's designed is exactly the kind of web page design app I would go for.

  9. I would like to see more personalisation.

    I love the themes which are in place. However, I think that it would be nice if we could decide the colour of the fonts and headings used in the customise section with a colour picker like you do in other office applications. I would also like to see improvements to background images, so instead of using the defaults you could also choose to import your own images. This would make the experience much more personal. I always find that the themes which exist are missing the combinations of colours that I would like.

  10. Sway Integrated Into SharePoint Publishing for Curation

    Integration features into SharePoint Publishing to allow content curation of SharePoint content utilizing Content Search. SharePoint currently allows you to publishing pages, but not curate content. It would be nice if you have a portal hosted in SharePoint to use Sway features to use Content Search to discover content within your portal to use in creating a narrative.

  11. Yammer Integration

    I can imagine a Sway tab on the User's Yammer Profile.
    • listing sways created by the user
    • ability to attach them to posts for sharing
    • ability to link to them from notes etc

    I can also imagine uploading sways into a Yammer Group in the files sections.
    • Images, Documents, Images, Videos and now Sways

    Finally, we need to ensure that we use app extensions so that the user on a mobile can easily share a sway into a Yammer group. Or from Yammer, open the sway in the app.

  12. 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!

  16. to extend the size

    It would be useful to have the ability to extend the size of Sway, with the limit of 1000 paragraphs being increased, to enable documents with more content to be created.

  17. Sway to build entire websites

    I just think it would be an awesome one stop shop. Newsletters, prints, webpages, and it's all so easily connected to our email and PC.

  18. Add tel function for dialing and call to action purposes

    I noticed the tel function is not currently supported. I am going to look for a workaround concept, probably a link back to the site, but this might be nice to add in the near future.
