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)

  1. 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.

  2. Customize the URL on sway just slightly.

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

  3. embed h5p

    Hi,
    Could we please enable embedding H5P.com content on Sway please? We use Sway for education and we need to be able to embed H5P's interactive content on Sway.

  4. Immersive Reader for Sway

    The Immersive Reader found in Word and OneNote and other places is amazing. Please bring the immersive reader to Sway. As a presentation and teaching tool, this would substantially improve the accessibility of Sway content. The translation and dynamic visual formatting features would be most valuable.

  5. 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).

  7. 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.

  8. Bulk Copy Sways

    I use Sway in a class room environment. Each semester my students individually create a Sway.
    In order to lock down the current state of the submitted Sways, I make copies in my own account.
    Bulk copying with a common prefix (e.g. Fall 2019) would be VERY helpful with this laborious process.
    Bulk deleting of past semester Sways would also be very helpful.

  9. 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.

  11. 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?

  13. Hide sharing option to external services when sharing Sway

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    Sway 共有時に表示される外部サービスへの共有を非表示にする機能の拡充要望

    Hide sharing option to external services when sharing Sway


    ■Description(内容):
    Sway 共有時に "リンクを知っている人は誰でも" を選択すると、Facebook 等の外部サービスへの共有を選択可能となるが、この項目を非表示にする設定の機能拡張を要望します。

    If we selected “Anyone with the link” when sharing Sway with other users, we will be able to share items at external services such as Facebook. We need this option to be hidden, therefore, add setting to hide this option as needed.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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)

  17. 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.

  19. 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

  20. 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.
