Sway Suggestion Box

Update: Microsoft will be moving away from UserVoice sites on a product-by-product basis throughout the 2021 calendar year. We will leverage 1st party solutions for customer feedback. Learn more

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)
Do you use Sway’s iOS app? We’d love to hear your feedback on the Sway for iPad & iPhone page.

  1. 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.

    Thanks for the suggestion! Are you envisioning being able to edit your Sway using the IFTT service? Or do you want to be able to share a Sway using it? Let us know in the comments! :)

  2. Customize your Sway

    There isn´t a Blank layout that allows user to customize his presentation... and there should be some effects as in the PowerPoint

    Thanks for the feedback. Have you tried playing with the different options in the Mood tab? Let us know what further customization you would like to see in the comments!

  3. 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.

  4. Full web (www) access via Bing or Google and multi file format support

    That will be nice if we had full web access, for now there is only possibility to get photos, videos etc. via Facebook, YouTube, Twitter... I mean by that to have easy access to any material that is available on the internet, when I'll need more information about anything that I could easily get for example from Wikipedia, Yahoo answers etc. That app is not giving much for now but with full access to WWWs and multi file format support it can be the best app out there. :)

    Thanks for the suggestion! Are you thinking specifically of looking through web pages for media content or do you envision being able to browse the text on web pages as well? Let us know in the comments!

  6. More dynamic text

    While trying Sway, I noticed that the entered text could not move freely like in ppt.

    A subindex of types of letters as you write would be great to improve the partnership with development.


    Original:

    Saludos desde chile, mi idea de mas dinamismo al texto

    Al probar sway note que el texto ingresado no lo podia mover libremente como en ppt.
    un subindice de tipos de letras mientras se escribe seria genial para mejorar la amistad con el desarrollo.
    Pero los felicito por el desarrollo, seguire probando para ayudar en su prontas mejoras.

    Thanks for the suggestion! We’re doing our best to understand your request, and would definitely appreciate any bilingual speakers who can help clarify our translation. :)

  7. Make UI more intuitive

    I as an experienced user like the sway Interface but I think new users might get lost to do simple tasks because they are hidden!


    • How do you preview your sway? You click out of the content area but this is a bit hidden I think.. why not adding a button in the header saying "preview" or something to make it super-simple?


    • The areas to edit something is not always clear. I've found myself selecting the group instead of the item itself or the exact opposite because I clicked a few pixels too high.. It's hard to find the area…

  8. Refresh OneDrive Photo Listing

    I was uploading new photos from Lightroom to OneDrive, to get them visible in Sway, I had to keep navigating in and out of the OneDrive folder to refresh. A button would be great.

  10. Let the input be easier

    The idea I made of Sway was an I/O software... And I discovered a wonderful output generator... Please let me include content "à la volée" : Let me write or copy text quickly, add photos or videos for further layouts or adjustings... If possible :) Otherwise I will keep my OneNote nearby ;)

  12. Better color picker

    The colour picker is confusing. It seems to me that it is random?
