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.

  1. linkedin

    Sway is great for making fancy resumés. Now that MS owns LinkedIn, a direct link between the two would be awsome: auto create a fancy resume in Sway using data from your LinkedIn profile.

  2. education sways so that content text is levelled at primary level

    sways need to be accessible for students - at the moment i cant get content leveled at primary level - the text retrieved is too hard - it'd be great to have education sways where content is simplified and easier to read for younger users

  3. Focus points

    If I want the entire image, I need to click "Focus points" and "The entire image is important".
    I would like have this option directly in the card and have the crop function to resize the orginal image for my needs in Sway document.

  6. Suggestion

    I have some suggestions to Sway and Office in general (I didn't find how to send Office suggestions, so this is the first suggestions: improve other Office apps feedback tools. My Windows Feedback Hub is not working since tha last update).
    1) I think Sway shouldn't be a Power Point alternative. I think this restrains Sway to much. People are familiar to Powerpoint already and will always prefer it. I thhnk Sway is a very powerfull tool to create websites: allow Sway creations to be published as websites or posts on services like Tumblr. Sway is already like a website…

  7. Using effects like Morph! That would be the future!

    Sway is a great tool, but it would be awesome to be able to use more effects like Morph in Office PowerPoint 2016.

  8. the ability to find and replace words across the Sway

    Its really quite simple - say you got capitalization of something wrong and you want to correct it across the Sway - how do you do that right now?

    If I wasn't importing pre-packaged content and was really building content directly into Sway, there is no way to make easy fixes.

  10. to have Quickstart create training content about Office 365 features

    Sway's are cool, we use them to create engaging pages about the new features in Office 365 for our users, so both informing them and inspiring them in this components.
    Quickstart is awesome, but it really doesn't know very much about itself, I created a Sway about Office Sway and it didn't even choose a single image etc.
    Please rig the algorithm so it pre-creates Sways packed full of videos, roadmap idea, tweets from the product teams etc. We would then adapt and use this for our own users.
    Imagine how cool it would be for Microsoft staff to demo…

  12. That good would be add you a bar of tools to crop, draw and add elements of design of drawing or complete parts to an image, create an image

    That good would be add you a bar of tools to crop, draw and add elements of design of drawing or complete parts to an image, create an image, forms geometric. It would be a complement powerful for the development of projects in a classroom with barriers to the learning. (SPECIAL NEEDS)

  13. Sway should have Office ribbon

    Hi, it would be just awesome if Sway could have the ribbon like it is in Office in general. This would make our work much more intuitive and effective. I think most of us agrees that ribbon was excellent idea.

    Thanks for this suggestion! What in the ribbon do you think would be good to add to Sway? Do you prefer the Win32 (Desktop) ribbon or the ribbon in the Universal app?

    We’d like to keep Sway simple to use, but would like to know if there’s functionality you think would be good to add.

  14. Die Überschriftszeilen sollten individuell positioniert werden können.

    Denn häufig kommt es vor, dass es vor dem im Hintergrund liegenden Bildteil als störend empfunden wird!

  15. Labeling and metadata

    I would like to be able to add labels and metadata (link account, date, descripition, alert, etc.) to the sway, ofcourse only visible for creator of the sway.

    Reason is that I want to use a lot of sways (for client proposols) and need to be able to manage them!

    Als0: be able to use labels and metadata to create views!

  16. 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).

  17. store Sways in Private cloud

    Sway provides interesting, new ways to reach out to groups. As an enterprise business, it occurred that this might be a potential tool for outbound marketing. But we have reservations about storing company Sways in the 365 cloud. Why not allow businesses to use Sway with archiving in their private cloud infrastructure? Would that be possible?

  18. Embed content from learningapps.org

    LearningApps.org is a Web 2.0 application, to support learning and teaching processes with small interactive modules. Those modules can be used directly in learning materials, but also for self studying. The aim is to collect reusable building blocks and make them available to everyone. Blocks (called Apps) include no specific framework or a specific learning scenario. The blocks are therefore not suitable as complete lessons or tasks, instead they must be embedded in an appropriate teaching scenario.

  19. Text Layout Freedom

    While creating a Sway for a presentation the current layout options would not let me arrange text in an aesthetically pleasing way. I was forced to pick a design that was closest to what I had in mind for the text layout of my presentation but in doing so I lost the background and color formatting I had liked.
    I would like the freedom to be able to move text wherever I please without having to change other features. The main thing I like about powerpoint is the ability to change the layout of each page however I choose. I…

  20. Make Sway work with Webboards

    Webboards allow publishing SMS from attendees directly into presentations (the conductor choose which question/remark to publish). It would be really great if we could integrate this simple technology (wich does not need app or smartphone) into sway through an API or something likewise.
    Webboards allow also to create simple and beautiful poll which can be integrated has oEmbed object in any service that support them.
