Sway Suggestion Box

Update: Microsoft will be moving away from UserVoice sites on a product-by-product basis throughout the 2021 calendar year. We will leverage 1st party solutions for customer feedback. Learn more

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.

  1. Manual Option To Add Font, Color, Background, Theme, etc

    I had moments ago described an issue with building a Sway. When the text and graphics are put together it's all entirely random. There needs to be consistency and documentation to this process. THIS IS NOT THE SAME ISSUE.

    When creating a Sway not only are the options limited (right side) but what is available I find utterly confusing. This could be organized far better such as picks: Select - background, font, color, whatever... The one click option to change is like everything else in the app totally random so I am forever clicking. Usually I end up liking a…

  2. More design tools for spacing

    It would be nice to be able to define the white space a little more within Sway. We are starting to use Sway for our internal newsletters. As the newsletter editor, I created a template, but the Creative Director needed to approve it and wants more space between cards.

  3. Alignmet options.

    Hi.

    It would be great if you can align the text like in Word. Aligment options like justify or align to the right.

    Thanks.

  4. Endnotes/Footnotes that are linked

    Sway templates have little footnotes/endnotes sections which is great. But it would be great if you could make endnotes appear in a familiar format, like superscript. It would also be helpful if you could more easily make these link to their location in the endnotes tile.

  5. mobile

    Please could a mobile preview function/button be developed for Sway to assist Sway producers to check how this would look and be displayed on a mobile.

    This functionality is provided in Forms. In this digital era this would help producers ensure that Sways look as professional as possible across multiple media streams, especially when there is an increased reliance on mobile phones to read communications.

  6. Text/Bullet Formatting

    Amend text and bullets colours, font, style etc. in the individual text boxes so to keep inline with corporate branding.

    Currently have to create in PP then screenshot and add as an image.

  8. Color setting for hyperlinks

    Allow easy color setting for hyperlinks done throughout a Sway to align with company design guide. In face the entire Company design setup is urgently missing

  9. PWAs dos apps do Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint)

    PWAs dos apps do Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint)
    PWAs dos apps do Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint)

    Uma sugestão: Os apps do office online (office.com) poderiam se instalar sozinhos como PWA. Por exemplo: Word Online seria PWA do office.com/launch/word?ui, PowerPoint seria do office.com/launch/powerpoint?ui e assim com o Excel.

    Também poderiam dar repaginada naquela aba arquivo do Office Online. pois tem um visual feio e antigo, na minha opinião está fora dos padrões do fluent design.

    Assim o Office ficaria bem melhor.

    Porque ainda deixam aquele visual de win8/office 2016 em alguns produtos do Office como Sway e OneNote?

  10. Allow to further customize each cards look based on the Style selected

    Allow to further customize each cards look based on the Style selected.

    Sometimes you want a card or a group of cards to slightly stand out from the rest. There should be sub-styles that each card or group of cards can be modified to for this purpose, but still adhering to the overall style selected.

  11. Set your own image as the background of the entire Sway

    It would be nice if I could set my own image as the background of my entire Sway presentation, like there are already some prepared backgrounds but it would be great if I could use my own image.

  12. Add a border to images and videos within sway

  15. Allow to edit each cards playback time

    Allow to edit each cards playback time.

    Some cards don't need a lot of time to present in playback, like introductory cards. But other cards contain a bit more context and you need to offer the audience more time to read the content.

    Setting a preset time holistically to all cards can dulls the audience during intro cards if the playback duration is too long and can cause the audience to give up if they can't read the cards with more substance if the playback duration is too short.

  16. more font choices

    I already voted for the custom font option, but at the very least, I think Sway should offer the same standard font options that are available in other MS Office applications, like PPT and Word (Trebuchet, Verdana, etc.).

  18. More fonts for specific storytelling themes

    Wider selection of fonts, especially "historic" fonts e.g. JSL Ancients/Apocrypha, and also transport fonts like Johnston100 (London tube font), NY Subway or ability to upload font files for my account

    For guidance as to range of impactful fonts that would be desirable, please consult "The non-designers design book" and the "The non-designers presentation book" both by Robin WIlliams.

  19. Text Box Use Entire Screen in Vertical Style

    Currently, the text boxes only use 2/3 of the screen, even though images with even moderate focus cross the entire screen. It looks unprofessional and puts an unnecessary limit on how much text I can have show below an image. Is there a way to extend the text box to match the length that an image can take on screen?

  20. 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.
