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. I would love to see an Undo Feature added.

    It was my first time visiting Sway & I accidentally X'd out a feature that I cannot find to re-add to save my life! Undo would allow me to go back a step and correct my mistake, that so far I have found no way to fix. Searching for that feature (options for suggestions when adding pictures) has been fruitless so far. The actual options we have for view are very limited, and I don't see this as a settings option at this time. I don't know how to bring it back and I really preferred it to be there.…

  5. delete

    There's still no way to delete a Sway "inside" Office/MS 365 as their Sway area lacks the DELETE command (in Sway file menu "..."), this command should be available like it is in the file "..." menu available at https://sway.com. Boring to switch URLs just to delete a file.

  10. Add Sways into Folders... I have too many under 'My Sways'!!!

    I have so many Sways... Revision Sways, Portfolios, Stories, Newsletters, Units of Work... and they all live under 'My Sways' - an increasingly over populated area! I like an organised workspace and would love to be able to create category folders and organise my Sways accordingly. PLEASE consider this, we teach students not to save everything in 'My Documents', to use Tabs in One Note, to use folders in OneDrive, to use channels in Teams, why is Sway storage so one dimensional???

  11. Fine Tuned Analytics

    When reviewing Sway Analytics, I notice that the number of total views is higher than the number of people in the distribution list that I send the newsletter to. Is there a way to modify the analytics to only include unique views based on sign in information and not include additional views by the same person but on a different device? The skewed numbers don't allow me to present an accurate report of how many people are actually opening the newsletter.

  15. Sway App!

    Hi!

    I am using sway, and i think it is amazing! However I would like to suggest that a Sway app is created instead of having to use sway online! Also a photo and video crop function would be good. But apart from that, awesome program!

    Thank you Microsoft!

  16. Do not require authentication if Sway link is all users can access

    We have produced a Sway link that allows all users with the link to access it. However, we find that users with another Office365 account are being asked to authenticate to view the Sway. If they try to log on to their own tenancy, they are blocked. It seems the only way around this is to open the Sway in an inPrivate or incognito browser window. This is making it impossible to share Sways as users are unable to just click and open the Sway as intended. If there is a workaround for this, I have not been able to…

  17. Allow to edit each cards playback time

    Allow to edit each cards playback time.

    Some cards don't need a lot of time to present in playback, like introductory cards. But other cards contain a bit more context and you need to offer the audience more time to read the content.

    Setting a preset time holistically to all cards can dulls the audience during intro cards if the playback duration is too long and can cause the audience to give up if they can't read the cards with more substance if the playback duration is too short.

  18. Allow to further customize each cards look based on the Style selected

    Allow to further customize each cards look based on the Style selected.

    Sometimes you want a card or a group of cards to slightly stand out from the rest. There should be sub-styles that each card or group of cards can be modified to for this purpose, but still adhering to the overall style selected.

  19. export

    We would like to export/import a Sway. This way our students could export a Sway from their school account and import it to their privat account, when they're leaving school. Or one teacher could export his sway and give it to another teacher who then could import it and adapt it to his needs in his own account. As a workaround we can share a sway, open it with the other account and duplicate it then. But a export/import possibility would be way better. Thanks.

  20. Automatically generate captions from photo EXIF data

    I use Sway to share photo albums with family. My workflow is:
    1. Create album in OneDrive
    2. Add captions to each photo (this becomes EXIF title field in photos)
    3. Use Windows Photos app to generate Sway.

    I would like Sway to automatically generate captions if they are available in the EXIF data.
