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. Use touchscreen functions to highlight, point and zoom on Sway in presentation mode

    I liked Sway very much but I still feel that it is limited in navigability bypassing other touchscreen functions in presentation mode.

  2. Adding Pictures

    It would be nice to have the ability to copy and paste images into the background tiles. You are currently not able to take an image from a document and put it in your sway.

  3. Scroll vertically in Chrome

    Currently when viewing a Sway in Chrome, vertical scrolling does not work on the page, just on the scroll bar on the side, or if touch screen, using touch. Please make vertical scrolling with a scroll wheel work with Chrome! (I've had this issue on multiple PCs, including Surface, and with multiple mice, including a Microsoft mouse)

  5. Sways lost because of a closed MS Office account

    We share editable links between each other in a team of 10 IDs. One of us has recently left the company, so with their account we lost a number of Sways.

    Is there any current process of "proper sharing" in place to keep all Sway alive?

  6. Arrangement

    If I arrange by title my sways at a new opening to see the same arrangement I do not arrange again.
    Of course, I would like some folders for grouping my sways.

  7. Custom Fonts and Transitions in Sway

    I found a Sway application that had a GUI somewhat like PowerPoint, where you can use the fonts that are on your PC and transitions. However, when I downloaded it, it seemed like an exact copy of the Sway that is on the internet. Can this be implemented, and if yes then when?

  9. Find a way to print

    Currently when viewing prior to printing, the information is too small and blurry to see. When trying to increase the sizes, it moves the information off the page to the right. Is there a way to print in a better format, larger so user can see it? Thank you.

  10. changing the SWAY default title picture ?

    I would like to change the SWAY default title picture in the newsletter template and I really cannot make it. I clicked on the title card, on the"Details" button and then tried both dragging and deleting it but none of the two works. Could you please provide guidance?

  13. 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.

  14. Uploading a Sway to Microsoft Teams

    I'm looking for some direction, I'd like to upload my Sway library to Microsoft Streams, although we share Sways with the organization I'd like to build a full library of them in a central location for everyone to be able to view anytime and open it up for others at our location to be able to share their sway creations as well. Are there directions available on how to upload Sway's to Streams, I've been doing a lot of searching without success

  15. Overlay Color on Backgrounds

    Backgrounds can sometimes overpower the text that's on top of them. It'd be useful to have a color overlay option (much like many websites use) so the image can be lightened or darkened with an alpha layer and tinted with the HEX or RGB overlay color.
