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.

  1. 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

  4. 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 ?

  5. Share to a List of Individual users

    Share to a list of individuals without typing each one in individually, Users are not int he same Security or DL Groups

    I currently have to add 27 Individuals manually, and only 12 are in a group that I can use so 16 individual entries.

    It would be nice to add the list with the ; separator like when sending email.

  6. signature

    I would like to use sway to disseminate my company policies and procedures and I would like to include some way for the employee to acknowledge that they have read and understand. It would be nice if an email notification could be sent when a sway was acknowledge and if there was an audit trail that was kept to record each acknowledgement. I would really be cool if you could version the sway and it would automatically highlight the differences between the current and last version of the document for users that have read them both.

  8. Share a template with students

    Recently, Sway took out the ability to share a Sway template which in turn gave students the ability to duplicate it easily without having to navigate through the ellipses in order to duplicate. This can be difficult for kindergarten and first grade students. Please make it easier for a teacher to share a Sway Template so that each student can get their own editable copy.

  9. Visual Link in Texts

    We would like the option to copy and paste a visual link through text as well as email. Currently, all that pastes is plain text and that is not ideal for sending a Sway to clients who prefer to communicate through text rather than email.

  10. 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.

  12. Using Office 365 Distribution lists

    Our tenancy uses a lot of automated distribution lists rather than o365 groups, we use these throughout the O365 toolkit but are unable to use these in sway for limiting the audience. Enabling Sway to talk to these groups will greatly increase the flexibility of the tool

  13. The ability for the reader of the SWAY to be able to highlight information

    In my class I create SWAY's with articles and audio's I then embed a Form assessment into the SWAY. It would be awesome if my students could highlight information in the articles within the SWAY.
    I know that they can do this in OneNote and I do that right now...but SWAY looks so much better and I love it's layouts, it really matches the SBAC format/look.

  14. 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.

  15. Live Captioning/Subtitling enabled for a Sway Presentation.

    Like PowerPoint and Teams (Soon), Sway should be able to convert Voice to text during a presentation to help those who are audio impaired or viewing videos without sound on the receiving end.

  16. analytics

    Analytical data - It seems to currently only record one view if the same office365 account reviews it more than once. It would be great to see unique and previous views of the sway.
    It could also do with a key to explain the results and categories of the data e.g what is defined as a quick glance mean?

  17. Have the table of contents as a "card" option as well which could be inserted at the top of a Sway newsletter.

    Maybe just with the text/hyperlink for each header and without the photos to simplify it?
