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. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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."

  5. Download a local copy of my Sway to present without relying on internet connection

    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?

  6. 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.

  7. Let readers modify autoplay

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

  9. View history - going back further

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

  10. 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…

  11. Share Sway with specific people (from Office 365 Home account) - as a way to get off facebook

    Allow Office 365 Home account to share Sways with specific people - I would like to do this to share content outside of Facebook. It seems this allows us to share content and control who can see it - thank you.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. Play settings for public

    When a sway is shared publicly via link. Viewers from the general public can see the sway and they can click to see the next page/side. But they can't click a Play button to allow for the Sway to automatically progress and loop.

    I think I used to be able to do this, but now it seems to have changed.

    Please fix this functionality.

    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.

  17. address bar

    When I open and play a Sway on tablet or phone the browser address bar remains visible. Since there are no function keys on these devices, it is impossible to remove the address bar, so part of the screen is taken up by it. This is the case with MS Edge, Chrome, etc. If I cast from these devices, the bar is always visible. Please develop/provide a solution.

  18. Password timeframe

    The password function is great but I would like to limit access to a Sway and have the password expired with a user specified timeframe - like 30 days after first access. This will help avoid unwanted sharing a bit also.

  20. Improve 'Invite' feature

    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. Also,…
