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.

Need technical support? Please visit the Microsoft Community or the Office Support site.

Thanks for joining our community and helping improve Sway!

I would like...

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".
(thinking…)

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.

  1. Duplicate an existing Sway

    In fact, a few months ago, it was very simple to duplicate an existing sway. But since a few months, the functionality has disappeared. It is however essential to be able to duplicate an existing Sway.

    • Live Captioning/Subtitling enabled for a Sway Presentation.

      Like PowerPoint and Teams (Soon), Sway should be able to convert Voice to text during a presentation to help those who are audio impaired or viewing videos without sound on the receiving end.

      • Correct the heading on How To Sway webpage

        On the How To Sway page, (https://sway.office.com/howtosway) the heading titled 'Placing text besides an image in vertical layout' contains a spelling mistake.

        'besides' has an extra letter (s) that should be removed to instead show as 'beside'.

        Besides this edit - I have no other suggestions :)

            • Analytics for media content engagement

              It would be great if Analytics showed how much users engaged with media that is embedded in a Sway (e.g. average time viewing/listening, etc.). I am using it for student podcast/video hosting and this data would be useful for discussion.

                  • Disable 'enlarge picture' function + hyperlink

                    Being able to disable the 'enlarge pictures' function. I'm currently making text-in-images visuals to get variation into my sway and make highlights, however, users often think it's a link that doesn't work. In addition being able to disable the enlarge function, I'd appreciate a hyperlink function to images and icons.

                      • Option to hide cookie notifications!

                        I use Sway daily and the cookie notification makes it unable to use on mobile phone for my costumers, since the notification can't be hidden. This also looks bad on presentations. Would be great if it could be fixed quickly. Thanks

                        • Added Font Type to Sway

                            • analytics

                              Analytical data - It seems to currently only record one view if the same office365 account reviews it more than once. It would be great to see unique and previous views of the sway.
                              It could also do with a key to explain the results and categories of the data e.g what is defined as a quick glance mean?

                                    • 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?

                                        • Add a feature to create tables directly in Microsoft Sway

                                          *English follows Japanese
                                          ■Title(件名):
                                          Microsoft Sway 内での表の作成機能について

                                          Add a feature to create tables directly in Microsoft Sway
                                          ***************
                                          ■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.
