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.

  3. Usage Reports in the Office 365 Admin tool or User Adoption PowerBI Content Pack

    Sway should be as manageable as any other workload in Office 365. It should have usage reports accessible to the O365 Global Admin. Usage reports should show how many Sways have been created, viewed, shared, or whatever other relevant actions in the last 7, 30, or 180 days, just like for several other workloads.

  6. suggestion

    I would like to be able to make an image a link to website. At the moment I have to do a separate caption link. This would enhance the SWAY and its interactive features.

  8. 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.

  9. Enable to display closed captions of videos automatically

    In my understanding, currently we have to pause a video and turn closed caption on for watching closed captions but I think it is not so good as presentation experience. Please add settings for automatically displaying closed captions like "ccloadpolicy=1" in YouTube.

  12. 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.

  13. 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?

  14. Enable displaying images uploaded to Sway in the same resolution as original images.

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    Sway にアップロードした画像について

    Enable displaying images uploaded to Sway in the same resolution as original images.


    ■Description(内容):
    Sway に画像をアップロードすると、元の画像より低い画質で表示される。もとの画像と同じ画質で画像をアップロードし、表示できる機能を実装してほしい。

    When uploading images to Sway, the images will be displayed in lower resolution than the original images.
    In order to improve usability, I hope the feature will be improved to enable uploading and displaying images to Sway in the same resolution as the original images.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  15. 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!

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  20. 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.
