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. Host sways in O365 SharePoint

    Instead of sharing on sway or as a pdf i want to share my sways on Office365 SharePoint where all my other content already resides. I also want to embed videos and other content in my sway that exists on SharePoint. I would expect a sway to be just another App that I can add to a site, just like a document Library or custom list. and for which the permissions are set in SharePoint.

  2. share externally to specific users.

    In a number of cases, there is a need to share a sway to specific external users to be able to edit, and then also have a secondary link for anyone to be able to view it. Currently You can only have one sharing permission level and you can only share externally via the anyone link.

    When collaborating with an external company/individual there is a need to allow just those within this specific company to be able to edit the Sway, but then once it is fully edited, for all who have access to edit to be able to generate…

  3. Add the setting of “Allow sharing only with the external users that already exist in your organization’s directory” to Microsoft Sway

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    Microsoft Sway の共有について

    Add the setting of “Allow sharing only with the external users that already exist in your organization’s directory” to Microsoft Sway


    ■Description(内容)
    Microsoft Sway にて共有を行う際に、ディレクトリ内に既に存在する外部ユーザーとのみ共有する項目がありません。
    そのため、Microsoft Sway の共有項目内に [組織のディレクトリに既に存在する外部ユーザーとの共有のみ許可する] 等の設定項目の追加を希望いたします。

    Currently I have recognized that there is no setting to share the items with external users who already exist in the directly when sharing in Microsoft Sway.
    Therefore, I hope the setting such as “Allow sharing only with the external users that already exist in your organization’s directory” will be added in settings for Microsoft Sway.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  4. Customize the Link Title

    When you share a sway link now, it auto-generates a link for you. For a more professional look I want to be able to customize my link to include the header of the document and/or in my case a version number or a issue date. For example if I'm making a monthly newsletter through Sway I want to be able to use the same title but include the month and year into both the document and the link I provide to others.

  5. 3D

    As Microsoft is adding 3D viewing in more and more environment:
    Mixed reality Viewer in Windows10, Remix3D in the Web, 3D viewer in OneDrive/Sharepoint, EMbed 3D in Office Document, I was wondering when it will appear in Sway.
    Support for glb/gltf is mandatory as well as fbx, obj and stl

  8. Allow URL Forwarding or Masking

    I've just discovered Sway and love it! What a game-changer for writers, bloggers & content managers! Kudos to the team.

    What is not visually appealing is the sway.com/xxxx URLs that are automatically created as unique. While this tactic might work well for media platforms like YouTube, here I feel it's a miss. It looks like you are working on this for the future, yet in the meantime perhaps there is a suggestion that would help alleviate this issue.

    I tried setting up a masked URL forwarding via one of my domains. I set up a subdomain and then created a…

  9. Change the autoplay time for each individual card rather than one time for all cards text can take longer than titles.

    Having one time for autoplay for all cards makes reading the title for 20 seconds boring for our users but then reading large text for 20 seconds makes it difficult. Being able to set the time for a title to 5 seconds but a text card for 30 would be advantageous.

  10. To be able to inset my sway as an email body, that would be awesome.

    I would prefer to send my SWay as the email body, this way it would look inviting, atractive, rather than a plane link telling you to open extra windows.

  11. clickable social media icons

    I would like to add small social media icons that are clickable, instead of adding text, add pictures & icons that can be connected to a link. Also I would like to adjust the spacing between topics, or add a side panel with information, icons, or whatever marketing content is needed.

  12. SEARCH sway

    We'll have a lot of Sway so we need search 1 of them but at this time, I haven't seen any search bar at home page.

    Can we create a search bar at home page?

  13. to be able to purge the view count periodically, or be able to break down views into, for example, views this week.

    So if I update something I can see how many people have viewed it since I've updated it, without having to actually write down the number and do maths each time! I know I could duplicate the Sway, but unless I can file them (administratively, for me) it will just clutter up my view unnecessarily.

  14. locked down kiosk mode

    We have a client who would like to use sway with a public facing large (65") touchscreen. They want visitors to be able to interact with the content, particularly images and forms but not be able to change the Sway or break out of the Sway. -Similar to the Kiosk mode in PowerPoint. They like the idea that they can update the content remotely as required.

  15. Share without Link

    Currently, when you select to share a Sway, the recipient has to open a link for it to show in their Sway "bin".
    The ask is for any Sways that are shared with edit permission to automatically show up in the other persons Sway page (either directly, or via a "Shared with Me" area, saving the step of having to open a link first.

  16. 3D Support

    As Microsoft is making a great effort in supporting 3D (in Win10 with Mixed Reality Viewer) in Office365, even in OnedDrive and Sharepoint it's now possible to view 3D files, it should be interesting to be able to use 3D in Sway. the Glb format is a good one with PBR features.

  17. Allow viewers to identify the owner of a Sway

    When a Sway view link is shared we need the ability for viewers to identify the owner of the Sway. This is especially important since sways can be duplicated and re-shared. It is also important to ensure that if we find an out of date Sway that is made broadly available to our company we can identify the owner for updates.

  18. Embed an Office 365 Sway into SharePoint Online

    Right now in Office 365 there is no embed code option for a Sway created in Office 365 (unlike the commercial version where you have embed code). This prevents the easy use case of embedding an Office 365 Sway in SharePoint Online. This is a popular use case for departments to easily create interactive Sways and then have them inline with other content on their department sites in SharePoint Online.

  19. More variety in font sizes

    In using sway in my classroom, I have had students complain that the font is too small to read when using my projector. Having the ability to have a wider variety of font sizes would be very welcome. Maybe similar to word where I can select 12 pt. font size if I want or 24 pt. font size if needed.
