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. Give the option to remove security warning pop-up.

    This week, any links embedded in my Sways that are clicked on bring up a pop-up security warning regarding leaving the site and going to a new one. Now, all Sways that I have embedded in my WordPress site will not open any embedded links because it cannot deal with this pop-up. As the owner and creator of the Sways, I am confident that I am not entering any dangerous links (most of them are to my own SharePoint) and I cannot afford for my customers to have this annoyance. Please, at least, give organisations the option of removing this…

  4. Regarding download of images on Sway

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    Sway に載せた画像のダウンロードについて
    Regarding download of images on Sway


    ■Description(内容):
    Sway を外部ユーザーと共有した時に、Sway に載せた画像をダウンロードして保存することを制御したいです。

    しかしながら、現時点では、組織内、外部に関わらず、画像のダウンロードを制御する設定がありません。
    画像のダウンロードを制御する機能の追加と、すべて可、すべて不可、組織内のみ可 (外部不可)、特定のユーザーを指定して可、など運用にあわせて柔軟な制御ができるように要望します。​
    We want to control the download and saving of images on Sway when sharing Sway with external users.

    However, currently there is no setting to control the download of images regardless of within the organization or externally.
    We hope that a feature will be implemented to control the download of images, along with the ability to change the restrictions flexibly according to operation needs, like All downloadable, All not downloadable, Downloadable only for within organization (no external), Downloadable only for specified…

  5. Twitter Card Removed

    I work for Education training and supporting schools to use MS products. The feedback from Sway has been amazing and staff love the Twitter card. This has now been removed but I would love to see it added again. I know you can embed but that word puts a lot of staff off. We loved the simplicity of the Twitter card

  8. Change the message on the tab

    The “Sway-Error” tab is very misleading and stops people from noticing the message that they need to sign in which then equals a support ticket. Please remove error and replace with Sway - Sign in.

    Can we please have the flickr photostream and flickr album options back. The flickr support is now reduced to virtually pointless.

  11. To have a community page where we can share our work?

    Sway is amazing website that allows you to create lots of content just just using the inside built templetes or just starting from your own, while eventualyl there are millions of users using Sway.
    I suggest that you created a community where users can share up each others work and then so that way we can have meainingful conversations with each other on developing something,creating,etc.
    Also in this sense, our sways might also get large number of visitors.

  12. Correct the heading on How To Sway webpage

    On the How To Sway page, (https://sway.office.com/howtosway) the heading titled 'Placing text besides an image in vertical layout' contains a spelling mistake.

    'besides' has an extra letter (s) that should be removed to instead show as 'beside'.

    Besides this edit - I have no other suggestions :)

  13. Help content in other languages

    Et pour les francophones
    étant utilisateur de Sway et ne comprenant pas l'anglais, il m'est impossible d'apprendre en détail Sway. Merci de penser à nous

    Translation:
    And for francophones

    being user of Sway and not including English, find it me impossible to learn in detail Sway. Please think of us

  15. Why we don't have simple Rich Text Editor like SharePoint

    I have gone through the Many post has been submitted still no action or no feature has been added in Sway.


    1. Not able to align the Text

    2. Not able to insert Picture in Text Area instead of background image

    3. Not able add Any Object in Text Area.

    4. Unable to copy paste images, it goes to Backgroud

    Please provide attest simple text editor that will help to use Sway, other wise that no use of it.

  18. volume control

    The audio volume control seems backwards. To increase the volume, you should slide the bar to the right, not left.

  19. Allow form filers to upload files

    Allow third party users accessing a Sway to upload a file onto the platform. It would be preferable if this option were connected to the forms that we embed into the platform.
