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

  2. Text to Speech

    I would love a text to speech feature, like the one that exists in Microsoft Word. I intend to use Sway for online course lectures, and text-to-speech would help make the presentations more accessible for visually impaired students.

  3. Microsoft Flow integration for data import automation

    I would like to leverage Microsoft Flow to pump data into Sway in order to present live data within Sway slides. By focusing on Flow, the types of content available to Sway users would increase over time as more Flow integration options become available.

  4. Panopto video to be able to embed

    We use Panopto at our post-secondary institution - a lecture-capture solution that has amazing Universal Design for Learning tools (closed captioning, chapters, etc.) that we use to support student needs and teaching resources. Sway would be a wonderful place for us to design student resources (and have students demonstrate their own learning) if they could embed Panopto into a Sway.

    What would it take for this to happen?

  5. Personal Flickr / Photography service accounts

    I would love to use this but unless I can connect to my flickr account, I really cant. I've read a few posts from dev's which say you can connect to your flickr account, but I cannot see how to do it. I can see flickr, so might I suggest that is where you put the option to connect to your own materials, even if they are copyright! It looks very promising!

  6. Power Bi Embedded Capabilities

    Power Bi's service capabilities have changed in a way which will make Sway's existing workflow for embedding dashboards unusable. This is very unfortunate, because Sway provides an excellent venue for quickly and easily sharing dashboards.

    It would be excellent if Sway could add functionality to embed a Power Bi dash using the "Embedded" workflow. Bonus points if you can tie in buttons that can link to the API functionality.

  7. presenter view 2nd monitor

    I present a lot (10-20 times a week - but not on sway), and having a preview monitor or presentation view of the next upcoming slide and notes is mandatory. Would be great to have a presenter view? As is, Sway looks to be a great consuming platform for non-live applications and something akin to a web site pop up link.

  9. ability to record audio on mobile phone

    It would be great if students could record audio in the Sway app on their mobile phones. Most desktop computers in school labs don't have external microphones so it would be helpful and convenient if audio could be recorded from within the app itself.

  10. Include Heading 2 in Table of Contents

    To help us navigate non-linearly through our Sways, please include Header 2 items in the Table of Contents as well. Thanks!

  11. Have a directory of all Sway documents in my organization

    The landing page for Sway today includes the following: Edited, Viewed, Deleted

    I would like an additional category called "My Organization" which lists all of the Sway document that have been created.

    Having one simple location to see all of the organizations Sway documents provides a way to check adoption/usage and also as a reference point for individuals wishing to create a new Sway.

    This 'hub' would also server to promote knowledge sharing and highlight new content.

    I would like to congratule you guys I like this app very much and also if something comes to my mind while I work on it I'll be make sure to tell you about it.

  13. Classify and organize My Sways

    When writing many Sways a better classification or organization of your Sways would be interesting. Tags or categories or folder like feature on "My Sways" page would be very helpful.

  14. Add Sway service and actions to Microsoft Flow

    If we have Sway service and actions at Microsoft Flow, it will be able to get any notifications like someone add Sway.
    It's similar to provide RSS feed on the blog post.

  15. Ability to Customize Heading Text and Position on Page

    The remix feature is nice but I would like to choose the color for emphasis/general text and also placement on page. It may differ for each page and one size/format style does not work on all pages. The ability for more customization of text would be much appreciated.

  16. annotate

    I want to present in sway and be able to annotate on top of the presentation and still be able to scroll to the next section. Currently when I do this in Edge I have to exit the annotation function to scroll and it resets the presentation.

  17. Stop automatic animation of images

    Add the ability to STOP the automatic zooming in and out of images. Once an image has loaded, it continuously zooms in and out which is very distracting on a large projector where the image is the focus of that part of the presentation

  18. Sway to have compatibility with USB presentation devices or have a Bluetooth phone app similar to Office Remote

    I'd like to Sway to be compatible with USB presentation devices or maybe a Bluetooth phone app like Office Remote so that I can present Sways without having to stand behind a computer or look down at my tablet to move the Sway along. This would improve my presentations because I'd be able to move around during my presentations, engaging with more of my audience.

  19. Move sway across tenants or organizational units

    If you work with multiple tenants it would be nice to be able to move your sways between them. Specially when you have template of sway and you would like to reuse it. Currently lot of people work in many organizations at the same time. If you want to change your tenant in O365 (because URLs are unfortunate) you want your sways with you.
