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.

  3. Developers to alter Coding on Forward Link

    Issue: when using the forward link within Sway the recipient receives it in Storyline Mode, NOT Design. I need it to be in Design. I've been using a workaround: https://sway.uservoice.com/forums/264674-sway-suggestion-box/suggestions/9052105-open-sway-in-play-mode-rather-than-in-the-storyl
    "So i found a way to have Sway open in Play mode.
    1. Open the Sway in Play mode and copy the URL out of the address bar.
    2. Remove the r in front if play in the URL.
    Example ?rplay.
    Should be ?play
    3. Paste the new link into whatever form you are using."

    This workaround is too convoluted for my students. Could you ask the developers to do…

  4. Change or remove grayscale background images

    There is no way to change or remove the grayscale background images used throughout the Sway, not just the title card. I would like to be able to remove them and choose a solid color background. It would also be nice to be able to upload my own background or at least be able to choose from the ones that already exist. The background that I am talking about is a lightning bolt in my image.

  7. See more detailed analytics (geographic) or be able to add a google analytics tag to Sway

    The analytics Sway currently offers are very basic. I'd like to see for example how many readers there are per region/country and how much time they actually spend reading it. If it's not possible to implement this in the Analytics section, it would be nice to have the possibility to add a Google Analytics tag to your Sways.

  8. Overlay Color on Backgrounds

    Backgrounds can sometimes overpower the text that's on top of them. It'd be useful to have a color overlay option (much like many websites use) so the image can be lightened or darkened with an alpha layer and tinted with the HEX or RGB overlay color.

  12. Print to PDF icon more visible

    Users main complaint is that they can't find the print to PDF icon "..." Would be good to customise the Sway to have a print icon in the corner to make it easier for users within our business to print

  13. Custom Footer/Signature

    A company-branded footer/signature that enables you to apply to all sways and edit the footer which also apply to all sway. So you can edit the footer once and it applies to all Sways.

  14. ANALYTICS

    The analytics is not really working as described.
    It provides only the summarized information without the ability to have a
    detailed view.

  16. Allow form filers to upload files

    Allow third party users accessing a Sway to upload a file onto the platform. It would be preferable if this option were connected to the forms that we embed into the platform.

  19. data storage to move within EU

    Today our sway is not stored within EU, that forces us to block Sway, so we can't use it! Please move the storage of sway for EU installations to servers within EU.

  20. A way to organise my SWAYS

    Sway has replaced PPT and Prezi for me in my teaching, and I can see it being useful for students to help them create and populate reports and assignments, but until Microsoft find a way of allowing users to organise and file Sways in their own folders it will frustrate the **** out those with multiple files. Why can't this be added to the My Sways options? surely it would not be a big task?
