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)

  1. Better color picker

    The colour picker is confusing. It seems to me that it is random?

  3. Edit Sway directly from canvas (viewing pane)

    I would love to be able to view and adjust my Sway in real time from the viewing page. Adjusting my Sway from the Storyline and then needing to click to the right to view changes seems like a time-killer, especially for those trying to personalize their pages to their liking.

  5. Android Sway App

    View a Sway via an Android app.

    The world has 2 billion Android users and many may be like me: I'd love to show my Sways offline. I would be keen to use Sway for my speaker presentations straight from my phone.

  6. Attribution at end of Sway (bibliography, works cited, etc.)

    If we can pull in content from other areas with a sway would it be possible to have an attribution page at the end of the Sway giving credit to the pulled content source?
    Can you pull in a series of blog posts via a RSS feed or maybe podcast and/or YouTube feeds? Seeing many possibilities for educational use.

  7. Live-updating Sways

    ... to edit sway, while it is shown on another device. This would be useful if sway is used as an infoscreen eg in Lobby. I want to insert actual information while someone watch at it somewhere else in the network. Best way: an automatic insert at a certain place (for rss-feeds for example)

  11. Provide sway applets for "graduated" infographic display.

    Provide applets that are themselves interactive for "stepping" through data to show sequences, evolution, or progression of a data series or relationship.

    Instead of "changing a page" you are going to the next iteration of the infographic display.

  12. Better design guidelines

    Sway "preview" design guidelines published so that companies can provide a "themed" design for use. Provide content guidelines, and specific guidance for companies and/or designers to start providing templated content/formatting for use in Sway. Explains how to provide formatting / content for sway as well as how users can use these custom sway formats.

  13. Photobooks

    A photo book is still an amazing way to capture memories and particularly the older generation appreciates it very much....I wonder if the AI/machine learning of Sway could help creating such a book out of an existing sway and move it to respective printing companies for the finishing touches.....such a feature could get printing companies to endorse SWAY and/or build add-ons in the future....

  14. Improved Cut, Copy, and Paste

    Need robust paste from most common apps, e.g. when I paste from Office apps, I loose all formatting.

  15. Draw Shapes

    I'd like to be able to draw shapes (boxes, circles, freeform, etc.) and be able to modify the properties of the shape (line color and type/weight, fill, transparency), just like in PPT.

  16. Linking within my Sway

    I want to be able to use links to navigate within my Sway. Basically, the feature in Word that lets you choose to navigate to a place within your document.

  17. Instagram in Media pane

    There's OneDrive, Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube for sources in the media pane. I would also really like to be able to add pictures from Instagram! Maybe my own instagram account as well as being able to search for what people are hashtagging there.

  19. Comic Book Style

    I would really like a style that would make my Sway look similar to a comic book. For example, making content boxed and changing the saturation of photos to make the color pop, including speech bubbles as a layout option for text, animations that mimic turning pages.
