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.

    Html to Sway

    I am planning an app that produces (W3C conform) html pages (travel reports).

  5. h5p.org and Padlet.com

    Hello!
    I work as a teacher, and would like to be able to embed more HTML5 content for interaction into my sways. Consider adding support for h5p.org, they offer a lot possibilities for interactive content. Padlet is another useful tool we often use in the classroom. Please consider enabling these features, would help many teachers and pupils!

  7. Sway would have great potential as a digital signage system

    I think Sway could have the building blocks for a great digital signage system. If Microsoft could release a "Enterprise" product where digital signage content could be created, and then be able to distribute them to TV's using a Windows 10 IoT device, that would be amazing. Storage of content could be either OneDrive, OneDrive for Business, SharePoint or on premise server. Would need to separate the management of the connected Windows 10 IoT devices (IT department) from the content creators (your Communication department), then you got a great corporate digital sinage system.

  9. 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…

  10. 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?

  11. Add screencasting tools to SWAY so I can make my own educational videos from my computer

    Please include screencasting tools to sway. Small businesses will not always have dedicated video makers or graphic artists to make educational videos and upload to sway before making a newsletter for example..I should be able to record and demonstrate while my webcam captures me and the educational video uploaded into SWAY...(see screencast-o-matic.com).

  12. 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…

  13. 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.

  14. Data Tables

    Sway absolutely needs the ability to include data tables of some sort. Similar to Word or PPT.

    There is basically no way to present numeric data in Sway right now which makes it mostly useless as a business presentation tool.

  17. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
