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.

  5. to extend the size

    It would be useful to have the ability to extend the size of Sway, with the limit of 1000 paragraphs being increased, to enable documents with more content to be created.

  6. I would like sway to be embed into email for marketing use. This programme has so much it could offer.

    A way to embed or copy the HTML of the sway so I can use it for marketing newsletters. even copying the HTML for use with Dotmailer etc would be amazing.

  8. Add tel function for dialing and call to action purposes

    I noticed the tel function is not currently supported. I am going to look for a workaround concept, probably a link back to the site, but this might be nice to add in the near future.

  11. Sway to play directly into ONENOTE without a link. The look of sway right in a ONENOTE page. Students do not like links.

    Open a sway file right in ONENOTE. A fully functional sway presentation in ONENOTE. Students do not like to follow links. presenting content in a effective way with sway and students can take notes in ONENOTE. Using one program seamlessly with another.

  12. linkedin

    Sway is great for making fancy resumés. Now that MS owns LinkedIn, a direct link between the two would be awsome: auto create a fancy resume in Sway using data from your LinkedIn profile.

  13. h5p.org and Padlet.com

    Hello!
    I work as a teacher, and would like to be able to embed more HTML5 content for interaction into my sways. Consider adding support for h5p.org, they offer a lot possibilities for interactive content. Padlet is another useful tool we often use in the classroom. Please consider enabling these features, would help many teachers and pupils!

    Html to Sway

    I am planning an app that produces (W3C conform) html pages (travel reports).
    Users should be able to publish html pages to Sway. Would be great!

  16. a Translation feature - very interested to use Sway for a school newsletter. i.e. English to Spanish, etc.

    Word on Office 365 has this feature, and I would like for Sway to have this feature. Does this exist currently? Is this a possibility?

  18. the ability to find and replace words across the Sway

    Its really quite simple - say you got capitalization of something wrong and you want to correct it across the Sway - how do you do that right now?

    If I wasn't importing pre-packaged content and was really building content directly into Sway, there is no way to make easy fixes.

  20. the option for a QR code next to the link when sharing.

    Like in Forms, create a QR code for sharing the Sway easier.
