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.

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:

  • 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".

  1. Allow sharing with Office 365 Groups

    Although the sway connector is not available under teams, we could more easily use workarounds if the share option allowed sharing with team group (Office 365 group).
    Please could you make this functionality available ?

    • automatically start sway shared presentation

      When you share a Sway it does not going into view mode, but edit mode with editing turned off. I just want to share a SWAY, opens into the presentation without the person I'm sharing with having to start it manually.

      • Create a Sway app for Microsoft Teams

        We have teams that use a variety of Microsoft O365 apps for a single project. For instance, we have a Sway that people can read through to get information on a training course, and a Planner where folks can looks for issues with that material or make suggestions for updating that material in the future. We have started to use Microsoft Teams and we would like to move to using Teams as the go-to collaborative environment for certain projects. In order to make that work, we would need a Sway App that can be installed within Microsoft Teams so a…

          • Enable the same sharing options as in Forms

            Would be good to have some standard across the products instead of having different options for each tool, especially as Forms and Sway are quite similar in some ways. This would definitely help increase the user experience across the O365 platform.

            • Stream groups supported for embedded play

              Microsoft Stream is a pretty good product and a good way to control and share video. But if I allow one of my colleagues access to a video on Stream they still can't embed it into one of their Sway.

              When I embed the video into a Sway I can play it inline.

              When they embed the same code into a Sway it asks them to click to view and opens another tab to view the video. Less then ideal for big teams.

              • link

                If you see SWAY (for example, when you click a link), you want to create multiple links that scroll to the title card location.
                Is there a way?

                • autoplay stack

                  Currently when I have auto-play on my sway it does not click through any stacked images, therefore would be good if auto-play could play the stack as well as the content.

                  • The ability to have more than one owner.

                    Sway owners leave the firm and no-one owns the Sway and risks being deleted if ownership is not transferred by IT Dept before the 30 - 60 days it takes the owner to be deleted from Azure AD.

                        • Delegate Sharing permissions

                          I would like the posibility to delegate the "share external" permission. Currently it´s a tenant wide setting. I would like only specific users to be able to share with anonymous links external.

                          • Locking the Guiding Icons for New Users Throughout Entire Presentation

                            As a new user in the current set-up, you only receive a guiding icon to tell you how to use Sway (click through stack, select arrow to continue, etc) once or twice, and then the feature disappears.

                            I would like to see the ability to "lock" down this guiding system for all users, as we may send out communication via Sway to hundreds of new users who will not remember how to use Sway after just one or two times being "guided."

                              There are time when having to present that I may not always have access to an internet connection. In these instances I would need to rely on a local copy of a document so I can make the presentation. Is it possible to enable this on desktop for Sway?

                                When sharing a Sway with specific people, email addresses are requested but no notification is sent to those email recipients to let them know that the Sway has been shared. This is contra to how specific sharing from OneDrive/SharePoint works leading our users to believe they have shared Sways when, in fact, the recipient has no knowledge of the fact that they have been granted access. To improve, please generate an email to email addresses specified (like the one that comes from sharing files from OneDrive) CC'd to the owner(s) letting them know that the Sway has been shared.

                                • Enterprise Library

                                  I like using Office 365 Sway for guidance documentation within an organisation, but it is a pain that I have to actively share them with other people, rather than them being in a location where people can find them.

                                  In the Sway interface, there are sections for My Sways and Featured Sways. I want something between these; for Enterprise Sways, where any Sways I have shared with my enterprise could be found.

                                  Ideally, there would be a concept of libraries or channels, like in O365 Video, where it would be possible to group Sways together and control access for editing…

                                    As readers may have different needs when it comes to autoplay, it would be a good idea to let readers change the autoplay tempo.

                                    • View history - going back further

                                      It would be helpful if the 'Viewed' tab went back further than just the last 12 Sways read.

                                      • VISUAL LINK

                                        How can I choose what image displays in my visual link? When I sent out my first newsletter it displayed the background from my first heading which I liked. Now it is displaying a generic image, and not my first heading image.

                                        • Disable the search candidate appearance by the settings in Microsoft Sway.

                                          *English follows Japanese

                                          ■Title(件名):Microsoft Sway の共有時に表示される候補について

                                          Disable the search candidate appearance by the settings in Microsoft Sway.
                                          ***************
                                          ■Description(内容):
                                          ​Microsoft Sway の共有時にアカウントの一部を入力すると、一致する候補が自動的に表示されます。現時点では、この機能を有効化および無効化に変更する機能がありません。
                                          そのため、本機能が設定で変更可能となる機能の追加を要望いたします。​​

                                          When you enter some part of your account in case of you are sharing the Microsoft Sway, Search Suggestions are automatically displayed. However, at this time, there is no function available to diable this function by now.

                                          Therefore, we hope the feature to be implemented that enables switching on/off the search candidate appearance from the setting freely.

                                          Thank you for your consideration.
