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.

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

        When migrating from G-Suite to Office365 it would be super useful to bring Google Sites with you

        • Have the table of contents as a "card" option as well which could be inserted at the top of a Sway newsletter.

          Maybe just with the text/hyperlink for each header and without the photos to simplify it?

              ■Description(内容):
              現時点では Microsoft Sway 内の機能に "表" を作成する機能がなく、Excel Online 等にて埋め込む方法が代用の方法となります。今後の機能の拡充の要望として Microsoft Sway 機能内にて "表" を作成する機能を追加していただく事を要望いたします。

              It would be very useful if we can create a table directly within the Microsoft Sway, instead of creating a table in Excel Online and embed it into Sway.

              Thank you for your consideration.

                  How do we have one analytics page for a Sway that multiple people send different weekly versions of?

                  • Customization of SWAY analytics report

                    I want to customize the analytics report that is been generated on Sway. Like can I show it in chart view, User Location, Who is viewing, edit other options that I don't want to show out here.

                    • attach files, not import them

                      It would be great to upload files as an attachment without showing the content of the files, but have the possibility to click on it

                      • To have options for creating folders in Sway

                        I suggest Microsoft Sway team to think of an option to create folders and then create or place sways in it.

                        So that I can have all the sways related to one activity in one folder and also searching becomes easy.

                        Moreover, the dashboard looks clutter free.

                        • allow section links for a table of contents or a link to a specific section

                          We love using Sway for newsletters and more. But here's a suggestion for you, @sway. Allow us to make a link to a section. Then we could refer readers to a specific article. It would be possible to do a clickable TOC, too!

                          • Being able to add tables and quotes

                            To add tables and quotes (prominently) you need to separately create and publish as images, which impairs viewing by mobile devices.

                              • Enhanced references - endnotes/footnotes

                                We are able to copy and past documents that use references like endnotes/footnotes and the format is great on Sway. What would elevate this would be to have the references automatically linked so users can access the notes directly from the body text. It would also be great to have the capability to hover over a reference and view the note it refers to.

                                • 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 "cc_load_policy=1" in YouTube.

                                  • Add Hardware Acceleration to the Sway App

                                    It would be really nice if you could add hardware acceleration capability to the Sway application. The app starts to really drag under a lot of photos.

                                    • Microsoft to allow users to decide what they want to embed into Sway (I want to include Desmos and others want something else)

                                      I tried to embed an application to find Sway only allows a limited number of applications. Instead of defaulting to a 'we block you :)' position, default as you can work with our tool to do what you want using these guidelines.

                                      • Embed vanity urls

                                        I have an Excel file on the corporate Sharepoint directory. I want to embed it to my sway but cannot because apparently, its a vanity url. It would be great if support could be added to embed vanity url's.
