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.

  • 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. allow section links for a table of contents or a link to a specific section

    We love using Sway for newsletters and more. But here's a suggestion for you, @sway. Allow us to make a link to a section. Then we could refer readers to a specific article. It would be possible to do a clickable TOC, too!

    • Create a Sway app for Microsoft Teams

      We have teams that use a variety of Microsoft O365 apps for a single project. For instance, we have a Sway that people can read through to get information on a training course, and a Planner where folks can looks for issues with that material or make suggestions for updating that material in the future. We have started to use Microsoft Teams and we would like to move to using Teams as the go-to collaborative environment for certain projects. In order to make that work, we would need a Sway App that can be installed within Microsoft Teams so a…

        • Live Captioning/Subtitling enabled for a Sway Presentation.

          Like PowerPoint and Teams (Soon), Sway should be able to convert Voice to text during a presentation to help those who are audio impaired or viewing videos without sound on the receiving end.

              • Option to hide cookie notifications!

                I use Sway daily and the cookie notification makes it unable to use on mobile phone for my costumers, since the notification can't be hidden. This also looks bad on presentations. Would be great if it could be fixed quickly. Thanks

                • analytics

                  Analytical data - It seems to currently only record one view if the same office365 account reviews it more than once. It would be great to see unique and previous views of the sway.
                  It could also do with a key to explain the results and categories of the data e.g what is defined as a quick glance mean?

                  • Have the table of contents as a "card" option as well which could be inserted at the top of a Sway newsletter.

                    Maybe just with the text/hyperlink for each header and without the photos to simplify it?

                      • Enable the same sharing options as in Forms

                        Would be good to have some standard across the products instead of having different options for each tool, especially as Forms and Sway are quite similar in some ways. This would definitely help increase the user experience across the O365 platform.

                        • VISUAL LINK

                          How can I choose what image displays in my visual link? When I sent out my first newsletter it displayed the background from my first heading which I liked. Now it is displaying a generic image, and not my first heading image.

                          • The layout of an exported Sway should be the same as the Sway it was exported from.

                            I tried Sway a while ago, but the lack of offline viewing options rendered it useless.
                            When I saw that an Export feature had been added, I gave it another go.
                            Foolishly, I created a new Sway, rather than trying to export an existing one.
                            What a waste of time. Having spent time formatting my Sway to look how I wanted it, I exported it to PDF, but when I viewed the PDF, the layout had changed, so it didn't resemble my Sway.

                              to be able to embed a Sway into an email for distribution via MailChimp or Dotmailer. Even just regular email through Outlook would be better than nothing. I love the tool but nobody clicks on links in emails and I need to maintain my readership!

                              • Host sways in O365 SharePoint

                                Instead of sharing on sway or as a pdf i want to share my sways on Office365 SharePoint where all my other content already resides. I also want to embed videos and other content in my sway that exists on SharePoint. I would expect a sway to be just another App that I can add to a site, just like a document Library or custom list. and for which the permissions are set in SharePoint.

                                  • 3D

                                    As Microsoft is adding 3D viewing in more and more environment:
                                    Mixed reality Viewer in Windows10, Remix3D in the Web, 3D viewer in OneDrive/Sharepoint, EMbed 3D in Office Document, I was wondering when it will appear in Sway.
                                    Support for glb/gltf is mandatory as well as fbx, obj and stl

                                    • Change the autoplay time for each individual card rather than one time for all cards text can take longer than titles.

                                      Having one time for autoplay for all cards makes reading the title for 20 seconds boring for our users but then reading large text for 20 seconds makes it difficult. Being able to set the time for a title to 5 seconds but a text card for 30 would be advantageous.

                                      • SEARCH sway

                                        We'll have a lot of Sway so we need search 1 of them but at this time, I haven't seen any search bar at home page.

                                        Can we create a search bar at home page?

                                        • Share without Link

                                          Currently, when you select to share a Sway, the recipient has to open a link for it to show in their Sway "bin".
                                          The ask is for any Sways that are shared with edit permission to automatically show up in the other persons Sway page (either directly, or via a "Shared with Me" area, saving the step of having to open a link first.
