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. Being able to add tables and quotes

    To add tables and quotes (prominently) you need to separately create and publish as images, which impairs viewing by mobile devices.

  5. Sways lost because of a closed MS Office account

    We share editable links between each other in a team of 10 IDs. One of us has recently left the company, so with their account we lost a number of Sways.

    Is there any current process of "proper sharing" in place to keep all Sway alive?

  11. Unify the feature of Sway regardless of platforms to insert the content on OneDrive via the App.

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名): Sway のアプリ版で OneDrive 上のコンテンツを挿入する機能の追加希望

    Unify the feature of Sway regardless of platforms to insert the content on OneDrive via the App.
    ******************************
    ■Description(内容): ​​
    ​Sway のブラウザ版では OneDrive 上のコンテンツの挿入が可能であるのに対し、アプリ版では挿入ができず "Sway.com" へ移動して操作を行うようメッセージが表示される動作であることを確認しました。 アプリ版をより簡便に使用するためにも、アプリ版にも OneDrive 上のコンテンツを挿入する機能の追加を希望します。

    We acknowledge the current feature can be inserted the contents on OneDrive via the browser version of Sway. Somehow, it can not be inserted through the app version. As a matter of concern, there is a time-consuming behavior that prompts came up to redirect to "Sway.com" then perform the same operation.

    For this reason, we suggest unifying the feature of Sway regardless of…

    It would be great to upload files as an attachment without showing the content of the files, but have the possibility to click on it

  18. A way to organise my SWAYS

    Sway has replaced PPT and Prezi for me in my teaching, and I can see it being useful for students to help them create and populate reports and assignments, but until Microsoft find a way of allowing users to organise and file Sways in their own folders it will frustrate the **** out those with multiple files. Why can't this be added to the My Sways options? surely it would not be a big task?

  19. Developers to alter Coding on Forward Link

    Issue: when using the forward link within Sway the recipient receives it in Storyline Mode, NOT Design. I need it to be in Design. I've been using a workaround: https://sway.uservoice.com/forums/264674-sway-suggestion-box/suggestions/9052105-open-sway-in-play-mode-rather-than-in-the-storyl
    "So i found a way to have Sway open in Play mode.
    1. Open the Sway in Play mode and copy the URL out of the address bar.
    2. Remove the r in front if play in the URL.
    Example ?rplay.
    Should be ?play
    3. Paste the new link into whatever form you are using."

    This workaround is too convoluted for my students. Could you ask the developers to do…

  20. Change or remove grayscale background images

    There is no way to change or remove the grayscale background images used throughout the Sway, not just the title card. I would like to be able to remove them and choose a solid color background. It would also be nice to be able to upload my own background or at least be able to choose from the ones that already exist. The background that I am talking about is a lightning bolt in my image.
