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.

  2. Password Protection a Must

    Great app. I think it could be better if the app has an option to automatically lock if not in use after few mins, or lock manually just like a bank account. it is personal information we are protecting here. still need to test out the features, but so far I like the concept and the custom ability of the app.

  4. Touchscreen doesnt work in 'Edit Text Box' during preview

    Touchscreen inputs do not work when using the 'Edit' option for text during preview. I am able to navigate using touchscreen until I press 'Edit' and an 'Edit Text' dialog box appears. Cursor navigation does not work inside this box and I must move the cursor using the keyboard. (I did not try the mouse.)

  5. Emphasize a portion or a specific part of a picture

    Goal: To offer a better flow of emphasizing certain parts of pictures.

    The ability to do one or many of these things:
    -draw arrows or boxes on images with or without some kind of flow or animation to draw attention to that point.
    -zoom in on parts of images "prezi style"
    -grow and shrink an image as it becomes the primary focus of the screen.

  7. A Sway site for doctors/dentists, or a way to search Sways by profession or discipline

    Me gustaria una categoria para profesionales medicos/odontològicos, para el caso de distintas profesiones dentro de esta categorìa,

    Translation:
    Hello...!! I am a professional dentist, do not understand the technical, but if I use PW x e.g. for lectures,
    I would like a category for professional medical/dental, in the case of different professions within this category,

    Thanks for submitting us feedback! If we understand correctly, you’re interested in having a specific Sway site that has content for doctors or dentists? Does anyone else want to be able to see Sways that pertain to a certain business sector? Let us know in the comments!

  10. Provide a better way to describe the Sway concept to the lay user.

    I'm beginning to understand what you guys are doing, but I've had to read about it from other sites.

    When you use the term "authoring model" you're not helping your case; you need to use terms that everyday people are going to understand:

    There are components to Sway: the first is the "sandbox", the second is the "mixer", the third is the "sculpture".

    There's an audience out there that would like to see your stuff. You have boxes and boxes and boxes of stuff you've accumulated throughout your life (e.g., photos, documents, links, ideas) and you want people to see…

    We like the analogy! Thanks for sharing with us! We always like to ask our users, “What is Sway?” to see what they say, because Sway is a little ambiguous and is still being defined. Does anyone else have other thoughts about explaining Sway? Let us know in the comments!

  11. More production manual on Sway in local language

    Currently the information for Sway is very limited especially in local language. And it is making IT administrators hard to evaluate this feature. In particular, we are being concerned about the Sway's data space if any. And if there is any data sapce for sway, where is it in o365. It would be very helpfull if we can have those technical manuals before the release.

  12. Seeing a Sway's share status (public, just with a link, or just me) from My Sways

    "My Sways" Shared Status
    When we log into Sway, the "My Sways" page should show if each Sway is shared publicly or just via a link. Currently we have to open a Sway to see its shared status. This will get inconvenient once someone has created more than 15 sways.

    At this time, you can’t manually override the style’s layout of your Sway. However, we do have a style that centers all content. (Currently the 4th row of styles.) What do you think of these styles? Let us know by leaving a comment. :)

  14. Arrow Buttons and Keys in Photo Grid

    If you create a grid of photos, and then click on one to make it fullscreen, there should be arrows to look at the other photos (and arrowkey shortcuts) . Right now you have to click to minimize then click a different pgoto to maximize

  15. import ppt masters (for layout & font) and ppt color palettes/themes created in-house

    In order to use for business, it would be helpful if Sway allowed you to import ppt masters (for layout) and ppt color palettes. As it stands, I'm not sure I can produce anything that will comply with company branding guidelines.

    I would suggest more flexibility and customize-ability. Especially if you want large companies to work with it.

  17. Jump to the end of Sway (>|)

    This option is required. During creation of Sway, when we add some contents, we start Preview and we have to go to the end of Sway to see how it looks. So, quick jump to the end of Sway is a very useful feature. Also, this is useful if a table of contents at the end of Sway.

  18. Post updates to sway from other applications

    I would like to be able to post updates to Sway whenever I update a blog post in Wordpress or other blogging platform. This could be done with IFTT.com. Emailing to Sway would also be useful.

  20. Support own/foreign Web-Storage through WebDAV/FTP/HTTP Links

    Import and export of media should support own Servers, NAS or other Web-locations. The most useful protocol would be WebDAV. Also supporting access through FTP would also be helpful. Using a link to import videos or images would also be pretty useful.
