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)
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.

  2. PWAs dos apps do Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint)

    PWAs dos apps do Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint)
    PWAs dos apps do Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint)

    Uma sugestão: Os apps do office online (office.com) poderiam se instalar sozinhos como PWA. Por exemplo: Word Online seria PWA do office.com/launch/word?ui, PowerPoint seria do office.com/launch/powerpoint?ui e assim com o Excel.

    Também poderiam dar repaginada naquela aba arquivo do Office Online. pois tem um visual feio e antigo, na minha opinião está fora dos padrões do fluent design.

    Assim o Office ficaria bem melhor.

    Porque ainda deixam aquele visual de win8/office 2016 em alguns produtos do Office como Sway e OneNote?

  6. to keep the format of a "Copied" Sway and just change the photos

    I already have a format that I like and "editing" (via a Duplicate Sway or Saved Template) will still mean that I need to change the photo, change the "Focus point" and delete the previous Image card.

    Is there any way to just change the photo and keep the formats?

  8. 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.

  9. multilingual

    Sway to be available in Multilingual mode like Forms and Forms pro
    I would like to have the possibility to give several languages options in the same Sway so readers can choose the language they want the sway in.
    I would like to have the choice between :
    Providing myself the texts in all languages
    Have sway translate my original text

  10. *.Padlet.ORG whitelist request for University

    Here at the Queensland University of Technology in Australia, we use the Padlet tool in our Learning and Teaching tool mix.

    In the last year, Padlet.com changed their business model from allowing multiple free 'Padlets' to only 3, resulting in schools and universities such as ourselves needing to procure "Institutional" licenses for Padlet - this was no problem, and also allowed us to have a custom subdomain in the *.padlet.ORG space.

    Free-account Padlets (Padlet.COM) embed with no issues in Microsoft Sway. *.Padlet.ORG, however, DO NOT EMBED.

    error:

  12. Revamp Sway to be integrated in Sharepoint like the "new" MS Stream

    Do to sway what you are doing with the "New" MS Stream. I don't like the proposals for the new MS Stream, but for Sway it would be amazing and breathe new life into it. Make a Sway just the same as any other SharePoint file type, stored on Sharepoint/Onedrive and then create a Sway App, for creating and viewing content

  14. To be able to copy and paste into the alternative text box

    I'd like to be able to copy and paste into the alternative text box especially as PowerPoint Smart Art images come across as images so then I have to type the slide contents in again as alternative text as I can't copy and paste it in - so much time wasted!

  16. Set your own image as the background of the entire Sway

    It would be nice if I could set my own image as the background of my entire Sway presentation, like there are already some prepared backgrounds but it would be great if I could use my own image.

  17. Enable Export Sway to Microsoft Stream

    Give me a reason to not export the PPT to Stream. Stream channels are used at my organization to centralize content. I have to record my screen pressing "play" to get what you offer with PPT export to Stream. Enable me instead to directly export my Sway to Stream, with or without 1. animations and 2. choosing the display speed (ie more time for slides w/more content). Ensure display of 3 options in Sway (horizontal, vertical etc) is optimized for non-theater mode of Stream.
    Thanks! Please vote for this!

  18. Share Sway with an Outlook Contact List

    Within my organization (a university) I have created personal contact lists. I want to share a Sway newsletter with that personal contact list. It seems, however, that I can only share the Sway with university-wide lists and not my own personal one. How can I make this work?

  19. 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.…
