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.

  1. 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!

  3. improve the size for tweets.

    Recently the tweets I have inserted come out cut by the size of the photo but only in "styles" horizontally and vertically, I saw the posts based on "iframe" can be resized as faceboook posts.

  4. 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.

  5. sway name

    Having an actual filename to help organize a Sway would be very helpful.
    As I am developing a sway, or testing it with the audience, I don't wan the main heading of the Sway to be Topic Rev. 0, and Topic rev. 1, etc...

  6. Ability to hide cards or sections

    There was an option in the previous version to "hide sections" similar to hiding slides in powerpoint. Can that option be brought back?

    It makes it easier to customize a Sway per targeted audience

  7. Adjust Line Spacing

    The line spacing at Sway looks like it is double-space, which does not allow you to include a lot of text on just one view. I

  10. to be able to duplicate a section of a sway

    I use the same format for certain parts and I would like to be able to duplicate a section that may consist of a heading, text & image without needing to make a new sway.

  11. Agreguen funciones de justificado y centrado para hacer de los documentos de Sway algo más atractivo.

    Sway necesita funciones como las de Word o Powerpoint para hacer documentos mejor preparados, ya que las opciones que tiene se sienten muy mínimas.

    Hi.

    It would be great if you can align the text like in Word. Aligment options like justify or align to the right.

    Thanks.

  15. 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.

  17. clickable table of content on top

    Have a clickable table of content on top iso only the navigation icon - this would enable me to use sway to create modern training manual, ie users can see the headers of my subsections and navigate quickly to the content they need.

  19. Enable external sharing permission to some users in my organisation

    Instead of disabling external sharing to everyone, it would be nice to be able to create a policy that we can enforce for some users being able to share externally.

    Thanks.
