Sway Suggestion Box

Update: Microsoft will be moving away from UserVoice sites on a product-by-product basis throughout the 2021 calendar year. We will leverage 1st party solutions for customer feedback. Learn more

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.

  1. Enable external sharing permission to some users in my organisation

    Instead of disabling external sharing to everyone, it would be nice to be able to create a policy that we can enforce for some users being able to share externally.

    Thanks.

  4. Organising multiple Sways

    Sways are really useful for sharing info and video clips with parents and children during lockdown. We are building up a collection of them, and sometimes want to share them with other practitioners who work with families elsewhere. It's hard to organise them though, with no folders or organising system - what's the solution?
    thanks, Charlotte

  6. make accessible without a link

    We recently used Sway to create an educational module for a doctoral project--it looks amazing. However, the hospital where we launched the project was unable to open the link to the sway due to strict security restrictions on hospital computers. A way to convert the Sway to PP in these situations might be helpful. Or just a way to make the Sway accessible without a live link.

  7. Global Administrator Moderation and Control over Sways

    We really need this functionality. A member of staff sent out a Sway to all of our customers with the wrong kind of link so no one can access the Sway. She then went off on holiday and we cannot contact her. We now cannot simply access her Sway to get the right link and fix the issue. This is a real hassle and embarrassment for a simple problem that should be easy to fix. It would be really helpful to have a Global Admin overview (like in Microsoft Stream) to be able to disable, delete or moderate Sways that…

  8. Dynamically update images

    We update and present a report weekly, which also has several images as part of the presentation.

    These images also change on the server (are over-written) but if we do this, the linked images do not update. Is there a way to dynamically/automatically update this content, the same way an embedded spreadsheet or word doc would update?

  11. ability to 'like' someone's sway to give them feedback

    I'm using Sway to share top tips, guidance, info snippets etc by sharing the links in newsletters and teams channels.

    It would be great if there was the option for the reader to 'like' the Sway at the end, then this data could show in the analytics section as an indicator of how useful the content is.

    100 views but 0 likes, or 100 views and 80 likes gives a helpful picture for the creator.
    I like 'likes' :)

  13. Enable Export Sway to Microsoft Stream

    Give me a reason to not export the PPT to Stream. Stream channels are used at my organization to centralize content. I have to record my screen pressing "play" to get what you offer with PPT export to Stream. Enable me instead to directly export my Sway to Stream, with or without 1. animations and 2. choosing the display speed (ie more time for slides w/more content). Ensure display of 3 options in Sway (horizontal, vertical etc) is optimized for non-theater mode of Stream.
    Thanks! Please vote for this!

  14. Share Sway with an Outlook Contact List

    Within my organization (a university) I have created personal contact lists. I want to share a Sway newsletter with that personal contact list. It seems, however, that I can only share the Sway with university-wide lists and not my own personal one. How can I make this work?

  17. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. embed a sway in Teams channels

    I'd love to be able to embed a sway in a teams channel. So that it functions - not as a link.
