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. Overlay Color on Backgrounds

    Backgrounds can sometimes overpower the text that's on top of them. It'd be useful to have a color overlay option (much like many websites use) so the image can be lightened or darkened with an alpha layer and tinted with the HEX or RGB overlay color.

  4. 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.

  8. Change or remove grayscale background images

    There is no way to change or remove the grayscale background images used throughout the Sway, not just the title card. I would like to be able to remove them and choose a solid color background. It would also be nice to be able to upload my own background or at least be able to choose from the ones that already exist. The background that I am talking about is a lightning bolt in my image.

  10. Hyperlink Images

    Hej
    I'd love to create a simple landing page with various offers. Instead of a link-list to the details I would like to use images/icons that the user can click to navigate to another sway or service.

    Please just allow to change the navigation target from clicking on an image to either "view in fullscreen" as it is default now, or "navigate to: URL/Sway", so we can use images as hyperlinks.

    Thanks

  11. Change position of Logo

    It would be great if there was a setting for the logo to be in one of say 10 positions. Currently in my presentation I insert a logo and it's right in the lower middle of the header image which goes over part of the focus point. Would be great if we had the option of top right, bottom right, middle right, middle, top middle, bottom middle, left top, left middle, left bottom.

  13. Additional card options

    It would be good to see continued development of card types for additional media. There are only the Heading 1, Heading 2, and Text cards, but a third Heading card might be useful, or perhaps the idea of subtext cards that could be laid on top of other text cards (for placing footnotes, links to resources, or other additional information. It could even be useful to think of cards specifically dedicated to columns (up to 3 on a whole text card perhaps) which could be deliberately dragged and adjusted for width (similar to the comparison card slider). Other kinds of…

  16. Allow additional text (like bylines) on Title and Header 1 cards

    The title slide only offers one text field, and the caption is hidden if you set a background image. It would be great if you could add a little bit of additional text (date, version, authors, etc.) to give some more context to the title slide.

    Heading 1 cards are equally limited. Since I have to have a Heading 1 card in order to be able to use Heading 2 cards it would be nice if I could put a little more contextual information on the Header 1 card, especially for sways that only require one Header 1 card (single…

  18. drag and drop images within a sway to allow users to interact with the content

    I would like to make my Sways more interactive for use in a learning environment. The ability to drag and drop components allows for mix and match type interactive learning.

    The attached example was developed using Articulate Storyline. It is a more powerful software, but less beautiful and harder to use.

  19. Enhanced references - endnotes/footnotes

    We are able to copy and past documents that use references like endnotes/footnotes and the format is great on Sway. What would elevate this would be to have the references automatically linked so users can access the notes directly from the body text. It would also be great to have the capability to hover over a reference and view the note it refers to.
