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.

  1. More embed options

    I love how you can now add embedded content to a Sway. However, I would also like to add content from more services.

  2. To be able to create a presentation for my software that is not linear to demonstrate my company's product

    The company I work for has software that is multi-tiered and the graphical nature of Sway is marvelous. I have a vision that could put together a marvelous presentation that could take an interactive tour of my software with levels that are as independent as my software. Sway I see now is linear but I see a 'coming soon' feature that possibly shows something different. The tiers of my software would be great to preview on Sway where I could go up and down as I presented so I can go DEEPER into my product.

    Great suggestion! We definitely have some exciting plans for nonlinear Sways that you can see a teaser of in our “Coming Soon” section when choosing a Structure (or with some of the Sways We Love: https://sway.com/wood_burning, https://sway.com/red_panda, https://sway.com/state_flags). We want to make these more sophisticated before we let our users start authoring in them though, which is why they aren’t currently available. Thanks for the scenario suggestion! It helps us prioritize our work in what we will deliver soon. :)

  3. YouTube thumbnails

    More of a question than an idea. When we insert a YouTube video, the thumbnail looks blurry. Is Sway grabbing the custom thumbnail presented by YouTube, or finding a random frame to use in the video as the thumbnail?
