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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  5. Embed PDF in Sway

    Hello. I would like to be able to embed a PDF in a Sway. Not the content from the PDF, but embed the PDF so the information can be consumed in its native format. Thanks!

  8. Give the option to remove security warning pop-up.

    This week, any links embedded in my Sways that are clicked on bring up a pop-up security warning regarding leaving the site and going to a new one. Now, all Sways that I have embedded in my WordPress site will not open any embedded links because it cannot deal with this pop-up. As the owner and creator of the Sways, I am confident that I am not entering any dangerous links (most of them are to my own SharePoint) and I cannot afford for my customers to have this annoyance. Please, at least, give organisations the option of removing this…

  9. mobile

    Please could a mobile preview function/button be developed for Sway to assist Sway producers to check how this would look and be displayed on a mobile.

    This functionality is provided in Forms. In this digital era this would help producers ensure that Sways look as professional as possible across multiple media streams, especially when there is an increased reliance on mobile phones to read communications.

  12. A report with dates and the possibility to embend documents for download

    A report with dates to know how many people viewed it date by date, even per time frame..

    The possibility to embend documents, not to see them directly but to download them with one click action. Like a little card that says the name of the doc and a Download/print button in a Sway.

  13. data storage to move within EU

    Today our sway is not stored within EU, that forces us to block Sway, so we can't use it! Please move the storage of sway for EU installations to servers within EU.

    Viewing Sway on a smartphone


    ■Description(内容):
    Forms のフォームを埋め込んだ Sway を iOS、Android のスマートフォンで閲覧すると、PC のように埋め込まれた状態で表示されず、[フォームの入力] をタップし別タブを開かないとフォームに回答できません。
    [フォームの入力] をタップする項数を減らしてほしいです。
    また、[フォームの入力] をタップしないと表示されない場合、Sway を閲覧したユーザーにそこに回答するフォームがあることに気づかれない可能性もあるので、PC と同じように埋め込まれた状態で表示されることを要望します。

    If you view a Form embedded in a Sway using an iOS or Android smartphone, it doesn’t display in the same way as it does on PC, and you can’t respond unless you tap on “Input to form” and open it in a separate tab.
    Please reduce the number of items for which you need to tap “Input to form” for.
    Also, in cases where you have to tap “Input to form” to…

  17. find

    Ctrl + F doesn't work instead you use accesibility viewer. Only works in Safari (Chrome, firefox and Edge chromium)

    Browsers indicate the number of times the word appears, but it does not position you in the document.

    However, if you use the accessibility view, the Ctrl+f works correctly.

    About export function


    ■Description(内容):
    現在の Sway ではコンテンツのエクスポートやインポートは可能ですが、一括でそれを実行する機能の確認ができておりません。

    テナント自体の移行などで複数のSwayをコンテンツ毎にエクスポート/インポートするのは、非常に工数がかかります。

    複数の Swayコンテンツを一括でエクスポート/インポートする機能の実装を希望します。

    Currently, it is possible to import/export content with Sway, but there is no way to do this all at once.

    It takes a lot of work to import/export each of many Sway content items for tenant migration etc.

    Please make it possible to import/export multiple Sway content items at once.

  19. Add Maths editor in Sway

    At the moment it is not possible to type maths equations in Sway. It would be great if a maths editor could be added to be able to type math symbols, directly in Sway, like you can do in Powerpoint. Every time I need to add a maths equation in s Sway I have to type it into a powerpoint slide and import it into Sway. This is double the work, time-consuming, plus it doesn't look as good. A maths editor in Sway will solve the problem.

  20. make accessible without a link

    We recently used Sway to create an educational module for a doctoral project--it looks amazing. However, the hospital where we launched the project was unable to open the link to the sway due to strict security restrictions on hospital computers. A way to convert the Sway to PP in these situations might be helpful. Or just a way to make the Sway accessible without a live link.
