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)

  1. string multiple sways together

    I would like to have 3 or four sways playing continously on a screen in the canteen at work.

    Similar to how it might be at a fast food restaurant where there is usually monthly ads or ads at lunch time that run about specials.

    The Idea is that you could string sways of different stylings together. Newsletter, ad/marketting campaign and Emergency Information are all different formats.

    I personally feel Sway is perfect for these dynamic notice boards that is the norm in most companies today.

  2. Enable Aliasing of Sway

    I am an FTE -- Love Sway. I think it would be good to have the ability to create a unique alias for Sways that correlates to the URL that is create automatically when you create a Sway. Let's say I create a new Sway and wanted to use a URL that I can remember, it would be cool if I can have a feature that would allow me to pair my unique name (something readable) with the auto generated URL.

  3. Card Sorter for Sway

    Sway has some features that make the end product very engaging for the intended audience. However, because your scrollbar shrinks as your Sway grows, it's difficult to rearrange cards. I would like to see a feature similar to the Slide Sorter in PowerPoint that would make it simpler and quicker to sort or rearrange slides.

  4. add video comments to a Sway

    I work with deaf students and need the ability to add video comments (in sign language) to provide feedback to their online work (including Word etc). Is this ever going to be a possibility like it is in Google Docs by using Kaizena add-on??

  5. Add Bot Functionality to Sway

    Add the functionality to have a bot.

    The nice thing about Sway isn't presenting in real time, but giving users a rich experience they can view on their own. Imagine having the capability to supplement your content with a bot for questions!

    This should be extremely easy to do by adding the Azure Bot Framework as an embed. The functionality is already there!

  7. to be able to add music.

    You already have creative commons images, why not add music? It would add a lot to a presentation.

  8. Notification

    Hi,
    There should be an option in Sway for sending a notification to all the invited members whenever there is a edits/updates made in text, so that every time the admin does not have to send an email or inform the invitees about the updates done.

  9. the edited default "address" send and receive.

    the ip address for created accounts need to be adjusted on the proper search engine to be modify accordingly when or after logon.. due to the fact that once you created the email its a mission to modify once you have a default name.. but the main issues for me is to recreat the email send and receive address... the dam thing is to "robo" for me. not complex but not easy to either just practical like logistics..

  10. Sway as a managed app

    Would be good to know if the product group have plans to introduce Sway as a managed app (Intune MAMWE in particular) so we can control data and make full use of the client on mobile devices.

    Thanks,

  12. Sway to play directly into ONENOTE without a link. The look of sway right in a ONENOTE page. Students do not like links.

    Open a sway file right in ONENOTE. A fully functional sway presentation in ONENOTE. Students do not like to follow links. presenting content in a effective way with sway and students can take notes in ONENOTE. Using one program seamlessly with another.

  13. Shared Sways with Editing Permissions appearing in Sway Dashboard

    It would be very helpful if Sways that we have been invited to edit would appear in our Sway home page/dashboard. This would make co-authoring much easier as we wouldn't have to hunt for a link every time.

  15. Create a teacher controlled live session

    Allowing users to create a live-session in which the pacing is controlled by a facilitator would be a great addition to Sway. If this tool is being described as a storytelling tool, then Microsoft needs to pay attention to one of the most important aspects of telling a great story, the timing.

  18. Use Sway to post Podcasts

    I am posting audio using the audio card but I am not able to easily organize the podcasts so that the groups can be easily viewed or grouped together with pictures and audio. For example, there is no card that will allow me to put audio and a picture together. If I organize the audio card (the postcast) and the visual card (a picture of the speaker) together in the grid group, the layout dictates how the they will appear. There is spacing which causes more scrolling. I'd like to use Sway as a user-friendly platform that is allows for…

  19. Link my Twitter account

    Link to my Twitter account so I can search and view in my twitter lists for specific tweets and then just drag and drop them onto a sway card. I would also be able to search for specific hash tags, trending topics etc, select and insert them.
