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.

  2. Custom Fonts and Transitions in Sway

    I found a Sway application that had a GUI somewhat like PowerPoint, where you can use the fonts that are on your PC and transitions. However, when I downloaded it, it seemed like an exact copy of the Sway that is on the internet. Can this be implemented, and if yes then when?

  3. I would like users to be able to view Sways shared to them.

    I am in a school environment where we would like elementary students without email access to be able to easily share a sway with a teacher. Sway should have a "Shared with me" section, similar to the OneDrive experience. Expecting elementary students to copy and send a link is counter-intuitive. I am trying to "sell" these products to our teachers and staff. If Microsoft wants to compete with Google, they need to stop making such mistakes with the products released. This one is a no-brainer.

  4. Find a way to print

    Currently when viewing prior to printing, the information is too small and blurry to see. When trying to increase the sizes, it moves the information off the page to the right. Is there a way to print in a better format, larger so user can see it? Thank you.

  5. changing the SWAY default title picture ?

    I would like to change the SWAY default title picture in the newsletter template and I really cannot make it. I clicked on the title card, on the"Details" button and then tried both dragging and deleting it but none of the two works. Could you please provide guidance?

  7. Fonts

    We need more of a font selection in sway. The company that I work for
    has a standard font like the Maurea font family or the Arial font family.

    تحمي ل
    as Arabic letters are connected

  11. Sways lost because of a closed MS Office account

    We share editable links between each other in a team of 10 IDs. One of us has recently left the company, so with their account we lost a number of Sways.

    Is there any current process of "proper sharing" in place to keep all Sway alive?

  16. Unify the feature of Sway regardless of platforms to insert the content on OneDrive via the App.

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名): Sway のアプリ版で OneDrive 上のコンテンツを挿入する機能の追加希望

    Unify the feature of Sway regardless of platforms to insert the content on OneDrive via the App.


    ■Description(内容): ​​
    ​Sway のブラウザ版では OneDrive 上のコンテンツの挿入が可能であるのに対し、アプリ版では挿入ができず "Sway.com" へ移動して操作を行うようメッセージが表示される動作であることを確認しました。 アプリ版をより簡便に使用するためにも、アプリ版にも OneDrive 上のコンテンツを挿入する機能の追加を希望します。

    We acknowledge the current feature can be inserted the contents on OneDrive via the browser version of Sway. Somehow, it can not be inserted through the app version. As a matter of concern, there is a time-consuming behavior that prompts came up to redirect to "Sway.com" then perform the same operation.

    For this reason, we suggest unifying the feature of Sway regardless of platforms…

  20. Developers to alter Coding on Forward Link

    Issue: when using the forward link within Sway the recipient receives it in Storyline Mode, NOT Design. I need it to be in Design. I've been using a workaround: https://sway.uservoice.com/forums/264674-sway-suggestion-box/suggestions/9052105-open-sway-in-play-mode-rather-than-in-the-storyl
    "So i found a way to have Sway open in Play mode.
    1. Open the Sway in Play mode and copy the URL out of the address bar.
    2. Remove the r in front if play in the URL.
    Example ?rplay.
    Should be ?play
    3. Paste the new link into whatever form you are using."

    This workaround is too convoluted for my students. Could you ask the developers to do…
