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.

  2. Image links to work in mobile view

    We have a grid view with some images with links. This works well on a desktop view, but in the mobile view the images shrink and the links disappear and no longer work. It would be great to still be able to have that functionality in the mobile view. Perhaps the way to do that would be to add an extra type of card that does not expand the images when users click on them, but instead takes you to the image link. Thank you.

  4. Do not require authentication if Sway link is all users can access

    We have produced a Sway link that allows all users with the link to access it. However, we find that users with another Office365 account are being asked to authenticate to view the Sway. If they try to log on to their own tenancy, they are blocked. It seems the only way around this is to open the Sway in an inPrivate or incognito browser window. This is making it impossible to share Sways as users are unable to just click and open the Sway as intended. If there is a workaround for this, I have not been able to…

  5. Allow to edit each cards playback time

    Allow to edit each cards playback time.

    Some cards don't need a lot of time to present in playback, like introductory cards. But other cards contain a bit more context and you need to offer the audience more time to read the content.

    Setting a preset time holistically to all cards can dulls the audience during intro cards if the playback duration is too long and can cause the audience to give up if they can't read the cards with more substance if the playback duration is too short.

  6. Allow to further customize each cards look based on the Style selected

    Allow to further customize each cards look based on the Style selected.

    Sometimes you want a card or a group of cards to slightly stand out from the rest. There should be sub-styles that each card or group of cards can be modified to for this purpose, but still adhering to the overall style selected.

  7. Automatically generate captions from photo EXIF data

    I use Sway to share photo albums with family. My workflow is:
    1. Create album in OneDrive
    2. Add captions to each photo (this becomes EXIF title field in photos)
    3. Use Windows Photos app to generate Sway.

    I would like Sway to automatically generate captions if they are available in the EXIF data.

  8. multilingual

    Sway to be available in Multilingual mode like Forms and Forms pro
    I would like to have the possibility to give several languages options in the same Sway so readers can choose the language they want the sway in.
    I would like to have the choice between :
    Providing myself the texts in all languages
    Have sway translate my original text

  10. more font choices

    I already voted for the custom font option, but at the very least, I think Sway should offer the same standard font options that are available in other MS Office applications, like PPT and Word (Trebuchet, Verdana, etc.).

  12. A different mechanism for access settings

    Currently Sway external sharing configuration uses the tenant's SharePoint setting. This means we would have to allow anonymous sharing of our intranet. :(

    We'd love to use Sway for digital proposals for perspective clients but can't because of this limitation.
    Forms doesn't have the same issue. it would be great if access settings for Sway were independent of SP so we could actually use Sway for external clients.

  17. About the Sway logs

    About the Sway logs


    ■Description(内容):
    この度 Sway の監査ログが廃止になったというアナウンスがあった。
    SharePoint など多くのログが取得できるなか、Sway のみログが取得できないとなるとユーザーへの説明ができない。
    Sway は SharePoint と操作感も似ているため、SharePoint と同等のログが取得できるようにしてほしい。
    同等のログが困難であれば、少なくとも作成と削除のログだけでも取得できるように機能を追加することを希望します

    There has been an announcement that Sway logs are to be discontinued.
    It is difficult to explain to users that even though many logs, such as SharePoint etc, can be obtained, only Sway cannot.
    Since Sway feels similar to use to SharePoint, please make it possible to get logs for it in the same way.
    If it is difficult to add such logs, at lease make it so that it logs creation and deletion events.

  19. Where is the point of making suggestions for improvement if you do not implement them?

    I am a first time user of Sway and as it looks also a last time user.
    Where is the point of making suggestions for improvement if Sway does not implement them?
    How many votes does an idea need for getting implemented?
    I was missing at least two functions.
    Creating a Hyperlink with image and inserting an image from a URL.
    All suggested a couple of years ago.
