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. Presentation Mode

    Since Sway is something between of Word and PowerPoint, I would like to write my research in Sway and get a presentation out of it, e.g. with removed details etc.

  2. Create an API to allow Tallyfy to feed in data to auto-build a Sway

    Once you have an API, we have a tool that automates processes and collects data needed for a Sway.

    With a Sway template built - we would then feed through that data to auto-generate a Sway. This is extremely useful for templated presentations e.g. a proposal by a sales team generates a consistent Sway with all the right data in the right place, ready to edit if needed.

    If anyone is interested in this approach - please get in touch with us at Tallyfy.

  3. Sway to have compatibility with XBOX 360 or XBOX ONE For Windows controllers to use as presentation devices

    The ability to use XBOX 360 or ONE controllers as presentation devices would be super handy. Bumper buttons (or X/Y) to move forward/backwards, the left thumbstick to move around the screen, A button to click on things, and the right thumb stick to slide the slider across on Comparison images.

    I made this Sway about the idea:

  6. Microsoft Docs.com (The New Blog engine) & Sway (The new code-free content creator Tool)

    We are loving sway in our company and we believe this is the new trend in content creation, better than blogging as we know it. We are already in the process of helping small client/bloggers planning to start a blog without the hassles of coding take advantage of this new tool. But Microsoft needs to help us make the tool look professional. Scenario 1: We'll like to see the possibility of having a media site around docs.com something like bloggers (By google). Docs.com is almost like that already we just need to create some templates for users to configure to…

  7. linkedIn

    I'd love to capture a post from my LinkedIn, Facebook and Google+ pages to include in my Sway. (very similar to what we can do with Twitter). Ideally, I'd like to be able to click "share" on each of those posts so others can share with their networks (from a newsletter).

  8. to see more education support like "Moodle" with tests, interactive response, etc.

    I have currently a Christian Education Center: https://docs.com/QualityofLifeMinistries
    I have over 500 Views. But it could be a lot better if I could give tests and thereby certificates. And to do that I would need: Question/Answer capability-Multiple choice, essay, etc . The future is into online education. "Mix" has limited capability in this area, but it needs to be updated to Windows 10 apps.

  9. live eBooks in sway- meaning dynamic content from web pages could be embedded inside sway

    sway should have the ability to embed share point pages in inside it. so that if I go to sway and embed any page which has dynamic content inside it, it will start displaying those dynamic content.

  11. Generate a carrousel and publish it on SharePoint and other sites

    That could be great to use Sway to get an automated carrousel that could be publish on the SharePoint intranet site directly or on any other site in an anonymous way.
    If the sway content could be automatically generated based on a list of articles from SharePoint or any other RSS sources... That could be amazing!!

  13. labs.js functionality similar to officemix to allow evaluations

    In OfficeMix for PowerPoint, we can add web apps built using labs.js that allow us to put interactive material such as multiple choice questions. The backend records these attempts and even sends grades to LMSs (learning management systems) like Blackboard. I think this feature of OfficeMix would work really well with Sway. And Sway is a somewhat better format than PowerPoint for the presentation/evaluations I want to be able to create.

  16. Mind mapping

    Allow Sways to have multiple paths - basically "mind mapping". An example would be a company org chart, starting with Acme Widgets Co, where you can click on any department, and leads you to that branch. (Could show personnel, finances, other metrics, etc)

  17. Name and Lines

    Great new product MSN!

    Helpful additional features for the future might be an option to enter lines between tekst, pictures etc. Now I make them in Photoshop and enter them as picture.

    Secondly it might be better to be able to rename the Sway and not only leave the text on the first Title as name of the file.

  18. Allow presentation to 'sway' based on audience or customer

    For those using sway in a sales or other type situation you often have a standard set of introduction slides. After this depending on some criteria you customize the presentation based on ...their industry, their answer to a key question etc. Having the ability to create one presentation with several possible endings would be fantastic in so many settings and would help the problem of keeping 3 or more presentations ready depending on the customer or audience.

  19. Sway as a real interactive (nonlinear) storytelling tool

    Since Sway is promoted as storytelling and presentation tool, you should add more features specialized in interactive, dynamic and nonlinear storytelling. So you could create interactive novels, tutorials or things like "textadventure games", where you have choices, different story branches and conditional statements.

    To get an idea, what I mean, you can take a look at the tool "inklewriter" (http://www.inklestudios.com/inklewriter/)

    It would be really awesome, if the features of "inklewriter" would be available in Sway also.
    Sway is currently really cool, but it has actually no features for nonlinear storytelling.
