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.

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".

  1. Replace image command

    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 media

      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. :)

    • Download the corporate font on Sway

      This tool is great ! However, I would appreciate if I could download our corporate font on Sway in order to create our Sway template.

      Thanks :)

      • create a Sway within a group so that my co-workers can still access it (especially important if you were to leave the organisation)

        If a Sway could be created in a group / within SharePoint, co-workers would be able to access it and they Sway would continue to exist even if the creator were to leave the organisation.

        • Sign in to Sway through OneNote Add-in using company account

          Dear Team,

          I really like the Send to Sway add-in function in OneNote. However, when using company Office365 account, I can't sign in to Sway through this add-in. It seems it only supports personal account for this function. Hope it can also work for working or school account!

          Bests,
          Claire

          • Customise style

            I would like the ability to customise styles further. I have a black and white style selected with accent colour of a olive green (style 2) I would like the ability to customise the accent green colour to a custom colour as I love the style black and white but would prefer a different accent colour.

            • Sway in a Sway slow to load

              I have created a Sway in a sway however when scrolling through the Sway when we get to the point of the embedded Sway showing it takes some time to load. I would expect this to be a smooth transition without having a delay which reduces the impact of the message in the presentation. Surely the embedded sway would be aware that it is included and be visible at the same time as the rest of the Sway content.

              It also did not work well with my autoplay setting as I had to reduce this to allow for the Sway…

              • Sway text bug

                I am giving up on Sway due to a problem with text formatting on photo labels and text boxes. For the past couple days my text is entered from the right and scrolls to the left. It ends up looking like the attached sample. I suspect there's a bug in the coding. I am guessing you have given up on Sway. You are wasting my time. I must now redo the project with Adobe Spark Page.

                • Numbered items should carry from card to card

                  The text editor on a card is kludgy, buggy, and weird if you add bullets, so it's easier to put one bulleted entry per card if you want to created a bulleted list.

                  This trick doesn't work as well with numbered lists. Each new card starts its list at one. If there are multiple numbered card entries in a row, the numbers should carry on from the previous.

                  Alternatively, you could fix the text editor for cards so that it handles bullets correctly.

                    • Embed Microsoft Forms

                      I have tried to embed a Microsoft Form, but it displays a block containing a link to the form, rather than the questions.

                      It would be better if the questions could be displayed in and answered from the Sway.

                      • clunky

                        Microsoft really needs to go back to the drawing board on Sway. While I love its potential, my students are asking to use Adobe Spark instead. Their reasoning is that Sway is clunky and unintuitive. Spark is very fluid and simple to use. As I have stated in other product posts, Microsoft needs to move away from a legacy backend, like SharePoint. My 20 somethings say they love the potential of the Microsoft product line, but they choose tools like Evernote, Spark, Trello, and G-Suite because they are super fast and fluid to use.

                        • 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

                          • 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.…

                            • Let me text pictures to a Sway via SMS/MMS

                              My wife and I take a lot of pictures on our phone and are dying for a friction-free way to save the highlights with captions for the memories. The best we've got so far is a private FB group, but I love the format of a Sway and would prefer that. But the friction of adding pictures to a Sway is too high.

                              The best I've thought of is for Msft to get a phone number that I as a user can text with pictures and optionally a caption. I would register my phone number to my account, and it…

                              • 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.

                                  Our business Brisbane Catholic Education is currently looking at creating a completely digital onboarding (new hire or internal transfers) experience. As a part of this process we were envisioning individual schools to have a brief unique video or Sway (default design/style) that provides a basic introduction and background to new employees. Due to currency being a factor when creating digital presentations we were hoping to automate the updating of this Sway based on a database (API).

                                  It would be great if Sway had the ability to create an automated Sway based on data pulled from an API - (series of…

                                    • Drag - replace image

                                      Most of the time, I am designing images and then bring them into SWAY. The current UI is - delete image, add image, click on new image, reformat focus of image - this requires a lot of repetitive clicking.
                                      Is it possible to simply drag a new image onto of the existing image ( replace image YES / NO) and have the new image inherent all of the previous conditions?

                                      • Have a feature to automatically have all pictures full view

                                        I write a sway newsletter every week and use a lot of photos. I would love to be able to default to all pictures being full view.

                                        • To add text as the body after the header

                                          I would like to add bullet points under a heading in Sway, like a body. I would like to have this feature added...
