Sway Suggestion Box

Update: Microsoft will be moving away from UserVoice sites on a product-by-product basis throughout the 2021 calendar year. We will leverage 1st party solutions for customer feedback. Learn more

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.

Need technical support? Please visit the Microsoft Community or the Office Support site.

Thanks for joining our community and helping improve Sway!

  2. Add a PDF as an attachment

    While it is nice to be able to import a PDF into the Sway content, I really just want to add a PDF as an attachment for others to click and view. Please make this happen! As an educator, I often have PDFs that teachers and parents need access to open and print.

  5. About “Start from topic” in Sway

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    Sway の "トピックから開始" について
    About “Start from topic” in Sway


    ■Description(内容):
    "Sway へようこそ" (https://sway.office.com/my) のページで "トピックから開始" に該当する箇所がありませんでした。
    "言語の変更" より、"English (United Kingdom)"、"English (United States)" を選択すると、"Start from topic" が表示されます。
    日本語を含めて他の言語を選択しても、"トピックから開始" に該当する箇所が表示されないことから、英語以外の言語には現時点で対応してないないようです。
    日本語を含めて、英語以外の言語でも対応するように要望します。

    On the “Welcome to Sway” Japanese page (https://sway.office.com/my) there is no “Star from topic”.
    If you use “Change language” and select “English (United Kingdom)” or “English (United States)”, “Start from topic” is displayed.
    Since “Start from topic” isn’t shown for other languages, including Japanese, it seems it is not supported in languages other than English.
    Please add support for other languages.

    In Sway, when upload of a video ends, the thumbnail displayed for that video is taken from the content of the video, and there is no way to change it.
    Please add a way to change what image is shown as the thumbnail here.

  7. add numbering to staple

    I use the staple feature to click through a list of topics and it would be useful for me as well as for the viewers to know the total of topics in each staple.
    So it would be nice if there was some small numbering indicator in the top left corner showing 1/5 on the first card, then 2/5 on the second, etc.
    Thanks for considering this idea!

  8. Have a vertical navigation menu

    I use titles a lot to structure my Sways and love the feature of the navigation menu.

    However, the menu is displayed on a horizontal list which truncates the titles and display images unnecessary for navigation.
    It would be much easier to move from one section to another using a vertical menu with titles that are displayed in full, one under the other.

  12. About the Sway logs

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    Sway の監査ログについて
    About the Sway logs


    ■Description(内容):
    この度 Sway の監査ログが廃止になったというアナウンスがあった。
    SharePoint など多くのログが取得できるなか、Sway のみログが取得できないとなるとユーザーへの説明ができない。
    Sway は SharePoint と操作感も似ているため、SharePoint と同等のログが取得できるようにしてほしい。
    同等のログが困難であれば、少なくとも作成と削除のログだけでも取得できるように機能を追加することを希望します

    There has been an announcement that Sway logs are to be discontinued.
    It is difficult to explain to users that even though many logs, such as SharePoint etc, can be obtained, only Sway cannot.
    Since Sway feels similar to use to SharePoint, please make it possible to get logs for it in the same way.
    If it is difficult to add such logs, at lease make it so that it logs creation and deletion events.

    Today our sway is not stored within EU, that forces us to block Sway, so we can't use it! Please move the storage of sway for EU installations to servers within EU.

    If you view a Form embedded in a Sway using an iOS or Android smartphone, it doesn’t display in the same way as it does on PC, and you can’t respond unless you tap on “Input to form” and open it in a separate tab.
    Please reduce the number of items for which you need to tap “Input to form” for.
    Also, in cases where you have to tap “Input to form” to…

  15. find

    Ctrl + F doesn't work instead you use accesibility viewer. Only works in Safari (Chrome, firefox and Edge chromium)

    Browsers indicate the number of times the word appears, but it does not position you in the document.

    However, if you use the accessibility view, the Ctrl+f works correctly.

    現在の Sway ではコンテンツのエクスポートやインポートは可能ですが、一括でそれを実行する機能の確認ができておりません。

    テナント自体の移行などで複数のSwayをコンテンツ毎にエクスポート/インポートするのは、非常に工数がかかります。

    複数の Swayコンテンツを一括でエクスポート/インポートする機能の実装を希望します。

    Currently, it is possible to import/export content with Sway, but there is no way to do this all at once.

    It takes a lot of work to import/export each of many Sway content items for tenant migration etc.

    Please make it possible to import/export multiple Sway content items at once.
