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.

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.

  1. Download the corporate font on Sway

    This tool is great ! However, I would appreciate if I could download our corporate font on Sway in order to create our Sway template.

    Thanks :)

  2. Uploading a Sway to Microsoft Teams

    I'm looking for some direction, I'd like to upload my Sway library to Microsoft Streams, although we share Sways with the organization I'd like to build a full library of them in a central location for everyone to be able to view anytime and open it up for others at our location to be able to share their sway creations as well. Are there directions available on how to upload Sway's to Streams, I've been doing a lot of searching without success

  3. Use touchscreen functions to highlight, point and zoom on Sway in presentation mode

    I liked Sway very much but I still feel that it is limited in navigability bypassing other touchscreen functions in presentation mode.

  5. Overlay Color on Backgrounds

    Backgrounds can sometimes overpower the text that's on top of them. It'd be useful to have a color overlay option (much like many websites use) so the image can be lightened or darkened with an alpha layer and tinted with the HEX or RGB overlay color.

  6. connect Sway Analytics in Power BI

    I would like to create Power BI reports and dashboards using Sway Analytics as a data source.

    Ideally, I could create reports using analytics from Sways I have created and Sways for which I have author access.

  9. I would like users to be able to view Sways shared to them.

    I am in a school environment where we would like elementary students without email access to be able to easily share a sway with a teacher. Sway should have a "Shared with me" section, similar to the OneDrive experience. Expecting elementary students to copy and send a link is counter-intuitive. I am trying to "sell" these products to our teachers and staff. If Microsoft wants to compete with Google, they need to stop making such mistakes with the products released. This one is a no-brainer.

  10. Hide sharing option to external services when sharing Sway

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    Sway 共有時に表示される外部サービスへの共有を非表示にする機能の拡充要望

    Hide sharing option to external services when sharing Sway


    ■Description(内容):
    Sway 共有時に "リンクを知っている人は誰でも" を選択すると、Facebook 等の外部サービスへの共有を選択可能となるが、この項目を非表示にする設定の機能拡張を要望します。

    If we selected “Anyone with the link” when sharing Sway with other users, we will be able to share items at external services such as Facebook. We need this option to be hidden, therefore, add setting to hide this option as needed.

  11. Find a way to print

    Currently when viewing prior to printing, the information is too small and blurry to see. When trying to increase the sizes, it moves the information off the page to the right. Is there a way to print in a better format, larger so user can see it? Thank you.

    I would like to change the SWAY default title picture in the newsletter template and I really cannot make it. I clicked on the title card, on the"Details" button and then tried both dragging and deleting it but none of the two works. Could you please provide guidance?

  14. Fonts

    We need more of a font selection in sway. The company that I work for
    has a standard font like the Maurea font family or the Arial font family.

  16. 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.

  20. 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?
