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.

  5. Hyperlink Images

    Hej
    I'd love to create a simple landing page with various offers. Instead of a link-list to the details I would like to use images/icons that the user can click to navigate to another sway or service.

    Please just allow to change the navigation target from clicking on an image to either "view in fullscreen" as it is default now, or "navigate to: URL/Sway", so we can use images as hyperlinks.

    Thanks

  6. Unify the feature of Sway regardless of platforms to insert the content on OneDrive via the App.

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名): Sway のアプリ版で OneDrive 上のコンテンツを挿入する機能の追加希望

    Unify the feature of Sway regardless of platforms to insert the content on OneDrive via the App.


    ■Description(内容): ​​
    ​Sway のブラウザ版では OneDrive 上のコンテンツの挿入が可能であるのに対し、アプリ版では挿入ができず "Sway.com" へ移動して操作を行うようメッセージが表示される動作であることを確認しました。 アプリ版をより簡便に使用するためにも、アプリ版にも OneDrive 上のコンテンツを挿入する機能の追加を希望します。

    We acknowledge the current feature can be inserted the contents on OneDrive via the browser version of Sway. Somehow, it can not be inserted through the app version. As a matter of concern, there is a time-consuming behavior that prompts came up to redirect to "Sway.com" then perform the same operation.

    For this reason, we suggest unifying the feature of Sway regardless of platforms…

  8. attach files, not import them

    It would be great to upload files as an attachment without showing the content of the files, but have the possibility to click on it

  10. A way to organise my SWAYS

    Sway has replaced PPT and Prezi for me in my teaching, and I can see it being useful for students to help them create and populate reports and assignments, but until Microsoft find a way of allowing users to organise and file Sways in their own folders it will frustrate the **** out those with multiple files. Why can't this be added to the My Sways options? surely it would not be a big task?

  12. Developers to alter Coding on Forward Link

    Issue: when using the forward link within Sway the recipient receives it in Storyline Mode, NOT Design. I need it to be in Design. I've been using a workaround: https://sway.uservoice.com/forums/264674-sway-suggestion-box/suggestions/9052105-open-sway-in-play-mode-rather-than-in-the-storyl
    "So i found a way to have Sway open in Play mode.
    1. Open the Sway in Play mode and copy the URL out of the address bar.
    2. Remove the r in front if play in the URL.
    Example ?rplay.
    Should be ?play
    3. Paste the new link into whatever form you are using."

    This workaround is too convoluted for my students. Could you ask the developers to do…

  13. Change or remove grayscale background images

    There is no way to change or remove the grayscale background images used throughout the Sway, not just the title card. I would like to be able to remove them and choose a solid color background. It would also be nice to be able to upload my own background or at least be able to choose from the ones that already exist. The background that I am talking about is a lightning bolt in my image.

  14. Allow sharing with Office 365 Groups

    Although the sway connector is not available under teams, we could more easily use workarounds if the share option allowed sharing with team group (Office 365 group).
    Please could you make this functionality available ?

  15. Add an option that excludes specific users and groups in the search feature.

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名): Office Sway の共有機能で一部のユーザーやグループを検索対象から外す機能を実装してほしい

    Add an option that excludes specific users and groups in the search feature.


    ■Description(内容):
    Office Sway の共有相手を検索する際、検索対象がテナントメンバー全体、グループも全体が対象となっているため、特定のユーザーやグループを検索対象から外す機能を実装してほしい​。

    So far we acknowledge that the search candidate for entire tenant member and group when searching people for Office Sway by default design. In order to find the relevant user who wants to "Share with" easier from large numbers of people, please add an option that excludes specific users and groups from the search feature.

  16. See more detailed analytics (geographic) or be able to add a google analytics tag to Sway

    The analytics Sway currently offers are very basic. I'd like to see for example how many readers there are per region/country and how much time they actually spend reading it. If it's not possible to implement this in the Analytics section, it would be nice to have the possibility to add a Google Analytics tag to your Sways.

  17. SWAY Navigation

    Is there a way (even with code) to embed the navigation view of a sway into a site?

    Would you know if this is available or coming?

    See attached for example.

  18. Change position of Logo

    It would be great if there was a setting for the logo to be in one of say 10 positions. Currently in my presentation I insert a logo and it's right in the lower middle of the header image which goes over part of the focus point. Would be great if we had the option of top right, bottom right, middle right, middle, top middle, bottom middle, left top, left middle, left bottom.

  19. Accessible Font Type in Accessibility View

    It would be great if the font type in the Accessibility View was changed to a sans-serif font (e.g. arial, calibri, etc.) to further enhance the accessibility of that view.
