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.

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".

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. Create a Sway app for Microsoft Teams

    We have teams that use a variety of Microsoft O365 apps for a single project. For instance, we have a Sway that people can read through to get information on a training course, and a Planner where folks can looks for issues with that material or make suggestions for updating that material in the future. We have started to use Microsoft Teams and we would like to move to using Teams as the go-to collaborative environment for certain projects. In order to make that work, we would need a Sway App that can be installed within Microsoft Teams so a…

    • create a Sway within a group so that my co-workers can still access it (especially important if you were to leave the organisation)

      If a Sway could be created in a group / within SharePoint, co-workers would be able to access it and they Sway would continue to exist even if the creator were to leave the organisation.

            • connect Sway Analytics in Power BI

              I would like to create Power BI reports and dashboards using Sway Analytics as a data source.

              Ideally, I could create reports using analytics from Sways I have created and Sways for which I have author access.

              • autoplay stack

                Currently when I have auto-play on my sway it does not click through any stacked images, therefore would be good if auto-play could play the stack as well as the content.

                  PLEASE do not retire the Sway app. I JUST found it and it is going to revolutionize my network marketing business. Please let me know how I can keep this app.

                    I would like to see that sways could be grouped into channels in a similar way as we can do in Stream. And I would like to have the ability to add a sway channel as a tab in Microsoft Teams, where I can see all the Sways in a channel as cards (like with Stream)

                      • to be able to have embedded content appear in exported PDFs.

                        The exported PDF is fantastic, and if it included embedded content it would be perfect. Surely this cant be too hard!!!

                        • The ability to have more than one owner.

                          Sway owners leave the firm and no-one owns the Sway and risks being deleted if ownership is not transferred by IT Dept before the 30 - 60 days it takes the owner to be deleted from Azure AD.

                          • Locking the Guiding Icons for New Users Throughout Entire Presentation

                            As a new user in the current set-up, you only receive a guiding icon to tell you how to use Sway (click through stack, select arrow to continue, etc) once or twice, and then the feature disappears.

                            I would like to see the ability to "lock" down this guiding system for all users, as we may send out communication via Sway to hundreds of new users who will not remember how to use Sway after just one or two times being "guided."

                            • drag and drop images within a sway to allow users to interact with the content

                              I would like to make my Sways more interactive for use in a learning environment. The ability to drag and drop components allows for mix and match type interactive learning.

                              The attached example was developed using Articulate Storyline. It is a more powerful software, but less beautiful and harder to use.

                                    Sway should be as manageable as any other workload in Office 365. It should have usage reports accessible to the O365 Global Admin. Usage reports should show how many Sways have been created, viewed, shared, or whatever other relevant actions in the last 7, 30, or 180 days, just like for several other workloads.

                                    • Download a local copy of my Sway to present without relying on internet connection

                                      There are time when having to present that I may not always have access to an internet connection. In these instances I would need to rely on a local copy of a document so I can make the presentation. Is it possible to enable this on desktop for Sway?

                                        • Provide the permission level that allows specifying the external users when sharing Microsoft Sway

                                          *English follows Japanese
                                          ■Title(件名):
                                          Microsoft Sway の外部共有について、特定の外部ユーザーを指定して共有を行えるようにしてほしい

                                          Provide the permission level that allows specifying the external users when sharing Microsoft Sway
                                          ***************
                                          ■Description(内容):
                                          Microsoft Sway で外部共有を行う場合、リンクを知っている人は誰でも共有を行える設定のみとなり、特定の外部ユーザーを指定して共有する機能がありません。そのため、Microsoft Sway の外部共有においても、特定の外部ユーザーを指定して共有を行えるように機能拡充を要望します。

                                          When sharing Microsoft Sway with external users, there is only one permission level “Anyone with a link” available. It is not possible to share Sway with specific external users.

                                          In order to improve usability, it will be nice if we could specify the external users to share Sway.

                                          Thank you for your consideration.
