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!

I would like...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Live calendar embedding

    Please make it possible to embed a live calendar into a Sway that can be clicked on to open events and will reflect any live updates. We are replacing our current web site program with the use of Sway for teacher websites. One HUGE issue with the transition is the inability to have a calendar of events and assignments due. This is something that parents and students need to be able to see and interact with. If I just post a picture of a calendar that would have to be updated at every edit. Or if I link to an…

    • Name a Sway without title showing

      I love Sway and create dozens of them. I often duplicate them to share samples with clients, and end up with lots of versions of similar sways. There is no way to name each Sway in a way i can easily identify it without opening it and looking through it. Any name i give it shows in the actual Sway headline, which i don't want.

      In other words, not everyone wants the name of the sway to also be a headline. Sometimes use a custom image and embed a title into that image rather than letting Sway set the type.…

      • Add Additional Owners (not authors)

        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 Menu

        • Add a new font to Sway

          I would like to suggest "Segoe Pro" as a font in Sway in order to be in line with Microsoft's brand guidelines. In this way a Microsoft employee with an exchange account xx@microsoft.com has access to it, when working in sway and using it for internal and external use.

          • Improve 'Invite' feature

            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,…

            • More flexibilty

              Sway is a great product but it is VERY restricted.
              We need the ability to add background colour, resize images or text and move items around freely. If you add these features, Sway will be without a doubt the best presenting program available.

              • Change menu back

                The Office 365 version of Sway was better than the Microsoft personal version. Remix was an obvious button which the students love. Just yesterday, we saw the O365 version now matches the personal version. Please change it back. The O365 version was more user friendly and easier to navigate without a bunch of extra clicks. Personal should have changed to match O365, not the other way around.

                    Hi, You already have the ability to see the number of people who have viewed a given Sway. Just look at the number in the corner of the Sway, when you are on the sway.com/my page. If you’ve voted on this for other reasons, please comment about the functionality that you’re looking for. Thanks!

                  • The layout of an exported Sway should be the same as the Sway it was exported from.

                    I tried Sway a while ago, but the lack of offline viewing options rendered it useless.
                    When I saw that an Export feature had been added, I gave it another go.
                    Foolishly, I created a new Sway, rather than trying to export an existing one.
                    What a waste of time. Having spent time formatting my Sway to look how I wanted it, I exported it to PDF, but when I viewed the PDF, the layout had changed, so it didn't resemble my Sway.

                      I'd like to add buttons to Sway for an interactive experience, so that users can choose to click on option A, B, or C. Clicking on one should jump them to that location in Sway.

                        • Audience interaction

                          Hello, It would be great to have audience interaction when swaying a presentation. Currently, to have this facility I am embedding chat rooms, poll apps, etc. However, it would be sleeker if these were part of the sway app.

                                      Thanks for this suggestion. Right now, we do have an audio card (so you can add a file, or record something to add to your Sway).

                                      Any more information you have is appreciated on how you’d like this scenario to work (ie – does it come from spotify/youtube/a file? should it play the entire time, or just for certain sections? what types of documents would you use this on?)!

                                      Thanks again!

                                      In most images in Sway you have the option to "showcase" or change the size of the image in general but in the Header Image you cannot. It takes up more space than I want in some cases and I'd like to be able to size it also. Changing the layout does not solve my issue.

                                      • Different Text Size

                                        You should be able to change your text size so you can fit everything on a single page.
