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. Option to hide cookie notifications!

    I use Sway daily and the cookie notification makes it unable to use on mobile phone for my costumers, since the notification can't be hidden. This also looks bad on presentations. Would be great if it could be fixed quickly. Thanks

  3. Enable editing of Sway on Android via an app

    Until we can edit and update our Sway on the go and anywhere than this will not be perfect. It would be ideal to take a snap on our camera phone and instantly upload it to Sway for editing. I use my phone more than a laptop/ computer to work so having a Sway app would turn this into a much more user friendly concept

  4. Analytics for media content engagement

    It would be great if Analytics showed how much users engaged with media that is embedded in a Sway (e.g. average time viewing/listening, etc.). I am using it for student podcast/video hosting and this data would be useful for discussion.

  5. backup

    I think it is important to have the choice to backup sways or download their original formate file. Exporting is not enough as you lose formatting. What if a sway(s) is(are) deleted by accident?

    They can't be recovered. This becomes all the more pressing as more content is built in the account.

  6. Using Office 365 Distribution lists

    Our tenancy uses a lot of automated distribution lists rather than o365 groups, we use these throughout the O365 toolkit but are unable to use these in sway for limiting the audience. Enabling Sway to talk to these groups will greatly increase the flexibility of the tool

  8. Share a template with students

    Recently, Sway took out the ability to share a Sway template which in turn gave students the ability to duplicate it easily without having to navigate through the ellipses in order to duplicate. This can be difficult for kindergarten and first grade students. Please make it easier for a teacher to share a Sway Template so that each student can get their own editable copy.

  15. automatically start sway shared presentation

    When you share a Sway it does not going into view mode, but edit mode with editing turned off. I just want to share a SWAY, opens into the presentation without the person I'm sharing with having to start it manually.

  19. display photo citation, not the link, without clicking

    the auto-generated photo citation does not show up on Play. The only thing you get next to the photo, save for your own caption, is a link to the source, and you have to full screen the photo for even that. I'm tired of clicking and I wouldn't mind making my own in-text citation caption if I could make it smaller than the rest of the text

  20. Your directions don't indicate how to change a design. They are shallow and don't actually work.

    Your directions don't go far enough to show how to change a template or customize colors. They just don't work in real life. More detail is needed.
