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…

  1. Customise style

    I would like the ability to customise styles further. I have a black and white style selected with accent colour of a olive green (style 2) I would like the ability to customise the accent green colour to a custom colour as I love the style black and white but would prefer a different accent colour.

    • Sway in a Sway slow to load

      I have created a Sway in a sway however when scrolling through the Sway when we get to the point of the embedded Sway showing it takes some time to load. I would expect this to be a smooth transition without having a delay which reduces the impact of the message in the presentation. Surely the embedded sway would be aware that it is included and be visible at the same time as the rest of the Sway content.

      It also did not work well with my autoplay setting as I had to reduce this to allow for the Sway…

      • Stream groups supported for embedded play

        Microsoft Stream is a pretty good product and a good way to control and share video. But if I allow one of my colleagues access to a video on Stream they still can't embed it into one of their Sway.

        When I embed the video into a Sway I can play it inline.

        When they embed the same code into a Sway it asks them to click to view and opens another tab to view the video. Less then ideal for big teams.

        • Keep Sway iOS app!

          Keep the Sway app on iOS! It is so easy to insert pictures from the iPhone into a Sway with the app. Don’t take it away!

          • Provide the permission level that allows specifying the external users when sharing Microsoft Sway

            *English follows Japanese
            ■Title(件名):
            Microsoft Sway の外部共有について、特定の外部ユーザーを指定して共有を行えるようにしてほしい

            Provide the permission level that allows specifying the external users when sharing Microsoft Sway
            ***************
            ■Description(内容):
            Microsoft Sway で外部共有を行う場合、リンクを知っている人は誰でも共有を行える設定のみとなり、特定の外部ユーザーを指定して共有する機能がありません。そのため、Microsoft Sway の外部共有においても、特定の外部ユーザーを指定して共有を行えるように機能拡充を要望します。

            When sharing Microsoft Sway with external users, there is only one permission level “Anyone with a link” available. It is not possible to share Sway with specific external users.

            In order to improve usability, it will be nice if we could specify the external users to share Sway.

            Thank you for your consideration.

              • Rainbow

                Wouldn't it be cool that once you're done typing everything (and if you wanted to) you could like somehow Rainbowfy your text and then it'll look like you used multiple colors on your text I'm just saying.

                • Sway text bug

                  I am giving up on Sway due to a problem with text formatting on photo labels and text boxes. For the past couple days my text is entered from the right and scrolls to the left. It ends up looking like the attached sample. I suspect there's a bug in the coding. I am guessing you have given up on Sway. You are wasting my time. I must now redo the project with Adobe Spark Page.

                  • Numbered items should carry from card to card

                    The text editor on a card is kludgy, buggy, and weird if you add bullets, so it's easier to put one bulleted entry per card if you want to created a bulleted list.

                    This trick doesn't work as well with numbered lists. Each new card starts its list at one. If there are multiple numbered card entries in a row, the numbers should carry on from the previous.

                    Alternatively, you could fix the text editor for cards so that it handles bullets correctly.

                    • to view who has read my sway

                      Today you can see the total views the amount of time spent which is helpful but given that I'm sending this internally it would be great to know who is reading it. Can you provide a list of viewers?

                      • Text to Speech

                        I would love a text to speech feature, like the one that exists in Microsoft Word. I intend to use Sway for online course lectures, and text-to-speech would help make the presentations more accessible for visually impaired students.

This is something that parents and students need to be able to see and interact with. If I just post a picture of a calendar that would have to be updated at every edit. Or if I link to an…

                            • Integrating some of the innovation used by Visme in Sway

                              If you have not heard of visme, take a look at visme.co I was part of one of your 3 day focus groups in Redmond a couple of years back. I had a great time with your Dev team members. I'm happy to see you implemented printing, but also find the visme template tools very easy to create dynamic presentations and documentation. Take a look. I look forward to hearing your thoughts! Lou Kalis - La Crosse Public Library - I.T. Manager

                                Currently, (The logo to the title card doesn't export?) there is no way to brand these exports or give them any identifying marks like a company logo, header or footer.

                                  • drag and drop images within a sway to allow users to interact with the content

                                    I would like to make my Sways more interactive for use in a learning environment. The ability to drag and drop components allows for mix and match type interactive learning.

                                    The attached example was developed using Articulate Storyline. It is a more powerful software, but less beautiful and harder to use.

                                      If you see SWAY (for example, when you click a link), you want to create multiple links that scroll to the title card location.
                                      Is there a way?

                                      • autoplay stack

                                        Currently when I have auto-play on my sway it does not click through any stacked images, therefore would be good if auto-play could play the stack as well as the content.

                                        • A sway android app

                                          It would be great to have a sway android app!
