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.

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

Thanks for joining our community and helping improve Sway!

I would like...

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.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • 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".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. 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?

  3. Add a feature to create tables directly in Microsoft Sway

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    Microsoft Sway 内での表の作成機能について

    Add a feature to create tables directly in Microsoft Sway
    ***************
    ■Description(内容):
    現時点では Microsoft Sway 内の機能に "表" を作成する機能がなく、Excel Online 等にて埋め込む方法が代用の方法となります。今後の機能の拡充の要望として Microsoft Sway 機能内にて "表" を作成する機能を追加していただく事を要望いたします。

    It would be very useful if we can create a table directly within the Microsoft Sway, instead of creating a table in Excel Online and embed it into Sway.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  5. Share to a List of Individual users

    Share to a list of individuals without typing each one in individually, Users are not int he same Security or DL Groups

    I currently have to add 27 Individuals manually, and only 12 are in a group that I can use so 16 individual entries.

    It would be nice to add the list with the ; separator like when sending email.

  8. direct link to table of content

    Is there any way to open a Sway directly with the table of Contents? Maybe some Parameter in the URL would be sufficient. The ToC view is a great start for our Readers and should be somehow accessible directly by either modifying the url parameter or setting it as default view in Sway.

  9. Change position of Logo

    It would be great if there was a setting for the logo to be in one of say 10 positions. Currently in my presentation I insert a logo and it's right in the lower middle of the header image which goes over part of the focus point. Would be great if we had the option of top right, bottom right, middle right, middle, top middle, bottom middle, left top, left middle, left bottom.

  10. Visual Link in Texts

    We would like the option to copy and paste a visual link through text as well as email. Currently, all that pastes is plain text and that is not ideal for sending a Sway to clients who prefer to communicate through text rather than email.

  11. CONVERT A SWAY TO A GIF

    I would like to see the sway converted into a animated .gif. So animation is not lost and my customer doesn't have to follow link to view the sway when inserted in an email, but also be able to had a hyperlink associated with the .gif that is referenced within the sway (my company website). One less click and less loading time.

  12. Additional card options

    It would be good to see continued development of card types for additional media. There are only the Heading 1, Heading 2, and Text cards, but a third Heading card might be useful, or perhaps the idea of subtext cards that could be laid on top of other text cards (for placing footnotes, links to resources, or other additional information. It could even be useful to think of cards specifically dedicated to columns (up to 3 on a whole text card perhaps) which could be deliberately dragged and adjusted for width (similar to the comparison card slider). Other kinds of…

  13. Scroll vertically in Chrome

    Currently when viewing a Sway in Chrome, vertical scrolling does not work on the page, just on the scroll bar on the side, or if touch screen, using touch. Please make vertical scrolling with a scroll wheel work with Chrome! (I've had this issue on multiple PCs, including Surface, and with multiple mice, including a Microsoft mouse)

  15. Title

    Hi guys. Just a bit of feedback on the titles -
    The Sway title from the first slide is not necessary the name you want to call the Sway in your personal library / Home page.
    Also, if your typical title slide for whatever reason is just a photo, you end up having a number of Untitled Sways in your library.
    It would be good to have Rename option included in Settings, where the library title would be independent of the slide contents.

  17. eDiscovery & Administrative Management of Sways

    https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Sway/eDiscovery-amp-Administrative-Management-of-Sways/m-p/288723#M281

    Today:
    •Sway activities are available in the Audit Log of the S&C
    •Sways are held in a blob storage in Azure, so are not stored in Exchange or SharePoint
    •Because Sways are not in the purview of Exchange or SharePoint, you cannot place them on eDiscovery holds or capture them in content searches
    •No PowerShell module exists that can manage Sways from a tenant admin perspective, like Whiteboard.
    •Additionally, because they are not stored in Exchange or SharePoint, and there is not a PowerShell module, you cannot transfer ownership of a Sway(s) to another user.

    What we need:
    1.…

  18. Customize the column/row amount for grids in Sway

    It would be great to be able to customize the amount of rows and columns displayed for the Grid feature in Sway. Currently, it automatically sorts your table, but sometimes the amount of columns it produces isn't ideal for the intention of the grid.

  19. Use Sway to create a knowledge base

    I would like to use sway to create my articles in my knowledge base. To make this work I would need SharePoint libraries to accept sway documents as a standard type. This would allow metadata tags for categories and also full text search capabilities.

  20. signature

    I would like to use sway to disseminate my company policies and procedures and I would like to include some way for the employee to acknowledge that they have read and understand. It would be nice if an email notification could be sent when a sway was acknowledge and if there was an audit trail that was kept to record each acknowledgement. I would really be cool if you could version the sway and it would automatically highlight the differences between the current and last version of the document for users that have read them both.
