When adding images to cards it would be nice to have a replace image command. That way when you want to try a different image in your sway design, you don't have to always delete the image and then start a new card and add new media87 votes
Thanks for the suggestion! For the time being, we kind of have this feature for header and title cards. Just drag a new image over the card and it will pop the old picture out into a separate image card and add the new image to the header/title. We’ll continue gathering feedback to see if we should expand this capability like you suggest. :)
I think I can use sway for compelling presentation of technical and business information, but much of my content is in Visio and exporting to raster format like PNG to import in Sway is far from ideal (poor zoom in / details experience, large file size).83 votes
Sounds like a great idea. Let’s see if others share it!
Cropping isn't just about picking what shows up in the Sway stream, it's also about eliminating/censoring parts of the picture so they can't be seen even when you drill in to the photo. When picking photos from one of my online accounts, it's super bandwidth intensive and time consuming to download a 1-5MB photo, open it in MSPaint etc, crop it, re-save it with a different filename, and upload it. Focus points are great, but they solve a different problem than cropping.82 votes
Good point! Thanks for the suggestion.
I would like to see the ability to add multiple owners who have full control of the Sway and its settings.
This would be in addition to the collaborative functionality available via the edit link. A co-owner would be able to modify Sway settings and properties.
Here are a few functionalities that are currently unavailable for co-authors:
1. Save as Template option
2. Modify View settings with Settings Menu
3. Share 'Edit' and 'View' links within the Share Menu82 votes
Noted. Thanks for the feedback!
Sometimes I´d like to share ideas with people around the globe (especially in my professional life). So it would be great to have the chance to add textboxes in different languages and a toogle-switch within my sway.80 votes
Thanks for bringing this up. We appreciate the thoughts and suggestions.
PowerPoint has this feature, though I've never used the green marble or fish fossil patterns...the subtle paper, linen, and wood patterns in Sway look really fantastic. Giving users the ability to choose from several preset textures would be a great way to give users just a little more "control" over the look and feel of the Sway. I know I often refer to www.subtlepatterns.com when I'm looking for something like this.79 votes
Thanks for the suggestion! It’s on our radar.
Text on a text card immediately following an image card continues directly below/beside the image card rather than beginning as a new card.
Option to force next card to start in the place of the next card and not inline as it were.
I have a horizonal scrolling sway and text is appearing below images where I would like it to appear beside it where the next card belongs.79 votes
Thanks for the feedback!
I really, really wish there is support of panoramas in Sway. This should include 360C photos as well as "normal" wide panoramas. Like in Google Photos or Flickr78 votes
Thanks for the suggestion! We’ll let you know when we start to make progress on supporting this feature.
I love how you can now add embedded content to a Sway. However, I would also like to add content from more services.77 votes
Let us know in the comments which types of embeds are important for you!
I dont want my presentation to be a single strand of information, but spontaneously decide which slide/card to go next according to the situation.
If i could put links between cards of similar topic, i could choose where to go next during the presentation.
So i can easily adjust my presentation acc. to different audiences, times and questions, without editing the presentation.76 votes
This is definitely something we’d like to ultimately build for Sway! What types of scenarios do you see yourself building something like this? Personal stories? Reading materials sent out to colleagues or to a class? Something else? Let us know in the comments!
You should be able to change your text size so you can fit everything on a single page.76 votes
Its very compatible if the sways created by our organization is could be explored through DELVE or Sharepoint site, since its part of knowledge sharing so why not to let it be exploreable, manageable
Maybe you guys already doing something great about it,
Sway is great to use. I love it75 votes

ability to have more control over the layout75 votes
The Sway team wants to make content groups in Sway work better for you. We’d like to learn from you – whether you use groups in Sway, how you use them, what you like and what you’d like to see changed.
Please fill out this short survey to help us!
Also please tell us what types of layouts are you trying to achieve that Sway isn’t allowing you to do yet? Let us know in the comments!
I tried making a sway (or whatever you call to the product of this software) and found that it is an easy way of organizing your thoughts when doing a presentation.
Instead of putting your ideas in "Outline" in Microsoft PowerPoint, I think organizing it this way (I mean the sway way XD) makes it more easier and adorable.74 votes
Thanks for the feedback! How do you imagine Sway integrating with PowerPoint? Do you want to be able to convert one to the other? What functionality would you expect to see in Sway or in PowerPoint if they were integrated? Let us know in the comments! :)

When sharing a Sway with specific people, email addresses are requested but no notification is sent to those email recipients to let them know that the Sway has been shared. This is contra to how specific sharing from OneDrive/SharePoint works leading our users to believe they have shared Sways when, in fact, the recipient has no knowledge of the fact that they have been granted access. To improve, please generate an email to email addresses specified (like the one that comes from sharing files from OneDrive) CC'd to the owner(s) letting them know that the Sway has been shared. Also, update the Dashboard section to include 'pending' shares that have yet to be accessed - my understanding is that Sways only show up after they have been accessed. This would allow those working in Sway to easily find new invites if the original email (currently separately manually sent) cannot be found.

I would like to be able to insert a twitter field, which I can set to a specific #hashtag, which would then show the e.g. newest 1-3 tweets.71 votes
