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. integrating Photoshop, Indesign, Illustrator, Fireworks and other Adobe programs

    Microsoft should think of maybe in the future integrating Photoshop, Indesign, Illustrator as well as other designer softwares such as Rhino and Sketchup.... Or maybe Microsoft can create another software similar to photoshop, Illustrator, Indesign and integrate it into Sway... it will make Sway look absolutely professional and extremely convenient for people who are proficient at design and it will also draw newer people who already use Microsoft into the new design softwares (which is connected to Sway), if you you do go ahead with this in the future, please send me an email, i will be more than happy…

  2. Sections and Pages

    Add Sections (tabs) and Pages like OneNote. This would be a great product to use for a project journal.

  3. Tagging Sways to help organize them

    Add tagging and viewing of Sways to work similarly as Microsoft Photo Gallery and OneDrive uses. The benefit would be that it's a familiar and current concept and that grouping and sorting of Sways would be possible. Currently, we only have a least-recently-modified view. As the number of Sways increases, we'll have to find them, manage them, or version them. Do this before a third party starts doing it. (Auto tagging in OneDrive fashion would help too.)

  4. Don't become overly complicated or add too many features

    With PowerPoint misuse embedded into the countless presentations I have ever seen (and created myself), please don't allow the suggestions brought to the table daily to sway you away from what sway is; a simple to use, visually amazing and incredibly powerful delivery resource. If you make it too complicated and add too many features, variations and customisation people will just fall back into creating dull and uninteresting resources. The absolute focus should be about customisation around designs (for use in remix) and that's all.

  5. Browser add-ins (similar to those available for Pinterest and Facebook)

    Browser add-ins (similar to those available for Pinterest and Facebook) that allow you to add content directly from the web. This is especially important since the sources available within the application for inserting content are curated.

  6. Add more hyper-text editing functions

    Onenote gives us an easier way to take notes, organize information, but its hypertext-editing function is not so good. At the same time, Word is a WYSIWYG software and it cannot edit hypertext either.

    I hope Sway focus on hypertext-editing function so as to organize all kinds of information more conveniently and effectively.

  7. Standard Business Reporting - Enterprise

    I would like additional content sources for #Sway to include Standard Business Reporting. Information is defined once in the SBR AU (Definitional) Taxonomy and re-used many times across reports. These data elements can be used in a variety of ways to review and report business and financial information.

    Please review www.sbr.gov.au

    The taxonomy is designed from an information classification perspective and would be enhanced with additional sources such as dashboards, sound clouds and linked to Business Intelligence capability in Azure.

    I would like to discuss sway on a confidential basis through @skypebusiness.

    Thx for your consideration of these matters.

    Kind…

  8. Sway for Business Sales presentations

    I'd like to use Sway as a tool for our Sales people to create personalized customer presentations.
    What I'd need would be for Sway to stay within our O365 tenant (not public), to be configured to look at specific publishing libraries for master presentation slides (stored as images maybe?), disclaimers etc.
    After that it would be nice to be able to have an offline format (through OneNote maybe?) and share it selectively with customers.
    SharePoint used to have a Slide Library that we used in a similar way. I think Sway could be the killer app for Sales!

    Thanks for all the suggestions! Some of them (like enterprise compliance) have already been suggested by other users, so make sure you go vote for their ideas. Can you elaborate more on what publishing libraries for master presentation slides Sway should be configured to? What disclaimers you would need? Let us know in the comments!

  9. interactive Data

    For example, creating interactive mathematic graphics with excel or other data. So the users could click on the graphic and see what happen on the graph.

    It could be nice to create a timeline option to click on and see what happen.

  10. Quick mode and Advanced mode

    So that would keep it quick and easy as you obviously want.
    But then you could have sensible layout features for those that want more control, and there's so much more control I'd like.....

  12. To add voice animation to a story book I want to create with Sway. Is it possible to have voice animation along with the text I will write?

    I want to create a story book with Sway for Special Education Needs children of one of the schools where I work. Some of the children have done cochlear implant. So I wanted to know if is it possible to have voice animation along with the text I will write? I want something like when the educator is reading the text for the children, the texts are highlighted as the educator reads the story.

  14. More OneNote functionality in Sway

    When looking at the current OneNote look, feel and handling it just does not feel like it is a part of the new road Microsoft is walking on. I believe that integrating functions from OneNote into Sway the whole new Microsoft experience will have a streamlined tool which fits in just right.

  16. Control Sway with Microsoft Band

    With Sway projecting to my audience from my phone or other device, I would like to move through my Sway presentation by using gestures picked up and interpreted by my Microsoft Band which then sends a corresponding navigation instruction to Sway. I would like to control my presentation by flicking my wrist or tapping the screen of my Microsoft Band.

  17. Provide sway applets for "graduated" infographic display.

    Provide applets that are themselves interactive for "stepping" through data to show sequences, evolution, or progression of a data series or relationship.

    Instead of "changing a page" you are going to the next iteration of the infographic display.

  18. Sway Slogan - Share What Animates You

    I think a phenomenal slogan for SWAY would be "Share What Animates You."

    Captures the animation aspect and the social aspect of SWAY.
