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!

  1. Screen Recording

    I found I had no way to use Sway to record the screen in animated way for a presentation that required it to be filmed/pre-shot. In the end I used VLC media player to record the screen. It worked well enough but would have been streamlined with the aid of Sway built in screen recorder or animator. :)

  3. Customize the URL on sway just slightly.

    Customize the URL on sway just slightly. Just enough to make it a little more personal.

  6. More fonts for specific storytelling themes

    Wider selection of fonts, especially "historic" fonts e.g. JSL Ancients/Apocrypha, and also transport fonts like Johnston100 (London tube font), NY Subway or ability to upload font files for my account

    For guidance as to range of impactful fonts that would be desirable, please consult "The non-designers design book" and the "The non-designers presentation book" both by Robin WIlliams.

  7. Enhance sway layouts

    Enhance Sway's layouts by taking ideas from "The non-designers design book" and the "The non-designers presentation book" both by Robin WIlliams. This may need a few more alignment features for text on cards

  10. compare sways

    I seem to end up with several versions fo the same sway - I don't know how this happens and would like not to do it. But now I have says that look the same (all edited on the same date) I appear to have no way knowing which is "better". A compare feature might help - keep the one that has the most content.

  12. clickable table of content on top

    Have a clickable table of content on top iso only the navigation icon - this would enable me to use sway to create modern training manual, ie users can see the headers of my subsections and navigate quickly to the content they need.

  13. Immersive Reader for Sway

    The Immersive Reader found in Word and OneNote and other places is amazing. Please bring the immersive reader to Sway. As a presentation and teaching tool, this would substantially improve the accessibility of Sway content. The translation and dynamic visual formatting features would be most valuable.

  17. zoom picture deactivate

    I want to deactivate the zoom function when I uploaded the picture. sometimes it is not necessary for making a real website for some requirements. It is better to show the options for the users to activate or deactivate the zoom function when showing picture.
    Thank you

  19. Add more variety with design of the templates

    Once you have selected a template you cannot then change the font colours. This makes things difficult when trying to design newsletters around our own 'theme'
