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…

  3. Correct support for headings H1 - H6

    To be fully accessible Sway should support headings levels H1 - H6.

    It seems to only support H1 and H2. Without the additional levels, it's not possible to create a good document structure or empower content creators to create WCAG 2.1 AA compliant content.

    The process of adding headings is cumbersome and counter-intuitive. It would be great if using headings could be easier.

  4. Connect to a REST API or Import JSON to present data

    Connect to a REST API or Import JSON to present data -

    Would be great to have a REST API called and use the returned JSON data to present in SWAY. One requirement I have is to show a table from a remote data set, but it could be as well used to create presentation content

  5. Start from Topic Option Missing

    When I open SWAY I do not have the option of "Start from a Topic", I only have create new or from a document. Why is this?

  6. Customize the column/row amount for grids in Sway

    It would be great to be able to customize the amount of rows and columns displayed for the Grid feature in Sway. Currently, it automatically sorts your table, but sometimes the amount of columns it produces isn't ideal for the intention of the grid.

  7. Please add different kinds of bullets such as the disc, square etc. Thanks

    Sway users should be given a number of bullets to choose from such as the disc,square etc and not just one. Thanks

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. Customise style

    I would like the ability to customise styles further. I have a black and white style selected with accent colour of a olive green (style 2) I would like the ability to customise the accent green colour to a custom colour as I love the style black and white but would prefer a different accent colour.

  15. Sway in a Sway slow to load

    I have created a Sway in a sway however when scrolling through the Sway when we get to the point of the embedded Sway showing it takes some time to load. I would expect this to be a smooth transition without having a delay which reduces the impact of the message in the presentation. Surely the embedded sway would be aware that it is included and be visible at the same time as the rest of the Sway content.

    It also did not work well with my autoplay setting as I had to reduce this to allow for the Sway…

  16. Sway text bug

    I am giving up on Sway due to a problem with text formatting on photo labels and text boxes. For the past couple days my text is entered from the right and scrolls to the left. It ends up looking like the attached sample. I suspect there's a bug in the coding. I am guessing you have given up on Sway. You are wasting my time. I must now redo the project with Adobe Spark Page.

  17. Numbered items should carry from card to card

    The text editor on a card is kludgy, buggy, and weird if you add bullets, so it's easier to put one bulleted entry per card if you want to created a bulleted list.

    This trick doesn't work as well with numbered lists. Each new card starts its list at one. If there are multiple numbered card entries in a row, the numbers should carry on from the previous.

    Alternatively, you could fix the text editor for cards so that it handles bullets correctly.

  19. Download the corporate font on Sway

    This tool is great ! However, I would appreciate if I could download our corporate font on Sway in order to create our Sway template.

    Thanks :)

  20. 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.
