Sway Suggestion Box

Update: Microsoft will be moving away from UserVoice sites on a product-by-product basis throughout the 2021 calendar year. We will leverage 1st party solutions for customer feedback. Learn more

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.

  3. See how many shares

    We need deeper analytics. How many newsletter shares were there? Also, what are the traffic sources for the views? It's hard to tailor future content when we dont have an idea of where the audience comes from. In my organization, we post the newsletter on multiple channels as well as embedding them in emails. However, we have no idea who our readers are. More analytics!

  4. A different mechanism for access settings

    Currently Sway external sharing configuration uses the tenant's SharePoint setting. This means we would have to allow anonymous sharing of our intranet. :(

    We'd love to use Sway for digital proposals for perspective clients but can't because of this limitation.
    Forms doesn't have the same issue. it would be great if access settings for Sway were independent of SP so we could actually use Sway for external clients.

  5. Customize the URL on sway just slightly.

    Customize the URL on sway just slightly. Just enough to make it a little more personal.

  6. allow section links for a table of contents or a link to a specific section

    We love using Sway for newsletters and more. But here's a suggestion for you, @sway. Allow us to make a link to a section. Then we could refer readers to a specific article. It would be possible to do a clickable TOC, too!

  7. nearpod embed codes

    Please add the ability to embed Nearpod lessons. Nearpod provides the iframe embed code, but Sway does not support it.

  8. 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…

  9. direct link to table of content

    Is there any way to open a Sway directly with the table of Contents? Maybe some Parameter in the URL would be sufficient. The ToC view is a great start for our Readers and should be somehow accessible directly by either modifying the url parameter or setting it as default view in Sway.

  10. Autoplay for multiple shorter videos without having to click on each to start (not YouTube)

    Auto play shorter videos and audio that I create without having to click play on each card. Not YouTube, just my own short videos and audio clips in Sway. Should play as one seamless slide show without having to stop and click over and over.

  11. Sharing Sways -- Too Much Hassle

    I cannot share a Sway with another person as easily as other Office 365 products. It used to immediately share, but now it wants me to send a link. It is frustrating.

    I need it to send an automatic email response like other Officer 365 products (i.e., PowerPoint, Word, Excel).

  13. Uploading a Sway to Microsoft Teams

    I'm looking for some direction, I'd like to upload my Sway library to Microsoft Streams, although we share Sways with the organization I'd like to build a full library of them in a central location for everyone to be able to view anytime and open it up for others at our location to be able to share their sway creations as well. Are there directions available on how to upload Sway's to Streams, I've been doing a lot of searching without success

  14. Scroll vertically in Chrome

    Currently when viewing a Sway in Chrome, vertical scrolling does not work on the page, just on the scroll bar on the side, or if touch screen, using touch. Please make vertical scrolling with a scroll wheel work with Chrome! (I've had this issue on multiple PCs, including Surface, and with multiple mice, including a Microsoft mouse)

  15. Sways lost because of a closed MS Office account

    We share editable links between each other in a team of 10 IDs. One of us has recently left the company, so with their account we lost a number of Sways.

    Is there any current process of "proper sharing" in place to keep all Sway alive?

  16. Arrangement

    If I arrange by title my sways at a new opening to see the same arrangement I do not arrange again.
    Of course, I would like some folders for grouping my sways.

  17. Find a way to print

    Currently when viewing prior to printing, the information is too small and blurry to see. When trying to increase the sizes, it moves the information off the page to the right. Is there a way to print in a better format, larger so user can see it? Thank you.

  18. Option to hide cookie notifications!

    I use Sway daily and the cookie notification makes it unable to use on mobile phone for my costumers, since the notification can't be hidden. This also looks bad on presentations. Would be great if it could be fixed quickly. Thanks
