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. signature capability

    We use Proposify for company proposals and would like to use this instead. The primary difference is that a client can approve/sign the proposal provided. Is this something we can look toward or is there a workaround?

  7. Looping Sway

    I have read the previous post answers that say you can loop or play a sway automatically if you have office 365 OR are a viewer of the sway

    I can find neither of these options.

    Can someone please clarify if there is an autoplay/loop option.

  9. Retention rates

    So one of the first things I noticed when learning how to Sway was the "Tutorials" button at the top menu. While I think Youtube is a great resource for education, I first thought about user retention since clicking this button takes you away from the Sway site.

    Would it make more sense to include a tutorial either as an in-browser dialogue box for important features (Insert, cards, design, layout, remix, etc) or after pressing the tutorial mode, this activates a guided teaching call-out mode that directs you to click on features you should know about as a first-time user.

  10. Encryption at rest

    Your site says you do encryption over the wire but not at rest. When will you support encryption at rest. This is needed for large companies to use this product and to be able to meet their security requirements

  11. List view for my Sways

    When you have many Sways, the view with the small pictures is not useful. You always have to scroll a lot to find the correct onw. A list view would be helpful.
    See attachment...

    Thanks and best regards,
    Fritz

  13. Naming a Sway

    Why is not possible to name a Sway with a exclusive name? As far as I have seen the name of the Sway is the title sentence. What if I need to duplicate, let's say in English my Sway but the initial sentence is the same (motto), how can I save both Sawys with different names?
    Thanks, BTW the app and the idea are brilliant!!

  16. To allow pictures geotagging.

    Today pictures taken by smartphones and many cameras include (or may include) geotagging. It would be a good idea to utilize this information once it is presented. Won't it be interesting to see exact GPS coordinates for such a picture?

  17. Notes

    I am using Sway for company tutorials. So my titles are titled to state the lesson number and what software we are learning. I have 20+ Sways with essentially the same title, which was directed by my superior. It would be awesome to have a 120 character limit note underneath each Sway to add a quick description.

  18. Different Glyphs

    So, in education the letter 'a' is represented by a glyph similar to the one in the bottom right hand corner of the attached file. However none of the fonts available in Sway use this glyph. This makes it difficult for students, especially those with learning difficulties to read, would you be able to add a couple of fonts that use the glyph I have indicated, please

  19. video

    It would be great if you could import a video directly from Microsoft video. It would also be great if you could share Sway newsletters directly into yammer.

  20. Please whitelist the prefix "https://maps.googleapis.com/maps/" so it could be embedded

    I guess you guys accidentally left the url https://maps.googleapis.com from the whitelist.

    Currently, if one tries to embed an URL that starts with that address, the message "Sorry, we do not currently support this site. Please look at the more information link above for a list of supported sites." is shown.

    What I'm trying to do here: https://developers.google.com/maps/documentation/static-maps/intro

    Sway already supports URLs starting with "https://www.google.com/maps/embed/", in other words, Google Maps Embed API is supported. I'd like to use Static Maps API, as it supports more URL parameters. But it's not supported, or, it's URL prefix isn't supported.

    If…
