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)

  2. Screen Recording

    I found I had no way to use Sway to record the screen in animated way for a presentation that required it to be filmed/pre-shot. In the end I used VLC media player to record the screen. It worked well enough but would have been streamlined with the aid of Sway built in screen recorder or animator. :)

  4. We need Scientific Writing text! Or at least, have the option for superscript/subscript.

    I can see sway as a powerful tool for online learning/self-learning, particularly during this pandemic. However, I am rather disappointed to find out that I cannot write chemical formula in the text box.

  12. Why isn't the Sway app available in Android.

    Why isn't the Sway app available in Android. It would help make Creation and sharing of the presentations easy.

  14. ability to 'like' someone's sway to give them feedback

    I'm using Sway to share top tips, guidance, info snippets etc by sharing the links in newsletters and teams channels.

    It would be great if there was the option for the reader to 'like' the Sway at the end, then this data could show in the analytics section as an indicator of how useful the content is.

    100 views but 0 likes, or 100 views and 80 likes gives a helpful picture for the creator.
    I like 'likes' :)

  16. In many companies could sway be a good tool for creating manuals. Drawing tools are missing: for example circle, arrow....

    In many companies could sway be a good tool for creating manuals. Drawing tools are missing: for example circle, arrow.... Sway should be hostable locally

  20. Global Administrator Moderation and Control over Sways

    We really need this functionality. A member of staff sent out a Sway to all of our customers with the wrong kind of link so no one can access the Sway. She then went off on holiday and we cannot contact her. We now cannot simply access her Sway to get the right link and fix the issue. This is a real hassle and embarrassment for a simple problem that should be easy to fix. It would be really helpful to have a Global Admin overview (like in Microsoft Stream) to be able to disable, delete or moderate Sways that…
