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.

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".

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. organizing sways

    I use sways to make newsletters for parents, staff meettings, resources for parents, special events for our childcare center. We have created quite a few sways in the past few months and it has become a little hard to organize and keep track of them. I would love to be able to put them in folders to keep them organized. I also have 4 other Directors at our center. We would love to be able to have the permission to be able to edit each others sway without being the initial owner. I would love to speak to someone in…

  2. Embed Power BI reports (internal embed link) excluding the Publish to web link

    We all know we can embed a Power BI report once a Publish to web and get an iframe code, paste done.

    However, for [internal use only] I can't publish a PBI report to the world and therefore using the new PBI Embed code for internal use only, is ideal, but does not work.

  4. Reset metrics to have a "clean" report

  5. Duplicate an existing Sway

    In fact, a few months ago, it was very simple to duplicate an existing sway. But since a few months, the functionality has disappeared. It is however essential to be able to duplicate an existing Sway.

  6. Live Captioning/Subtitling enabled for a Sway Presentation.

    Like PowerPoint and Teams (Soon), Sway should be able to convert Voice to text during a presentation to help those who are audio impaired or viewing videos without sound on the receiving end.

  7. Correct the heading on How To Sway webpage

    On the How To Sway page, (https://sway.office.com/howtosway) the heading titled 'Placing text besides an image in vertical layout' contains a spelling mistake.

    'besides' has an extra letter (s) that should be removed to instead show as 'beside'.

    Besides this edit - I have no other suggestions :)

  8. analytics

    Analytical data - It seems to currently only record one view if the same office365 account reviews it more than once. It would be great to see unique and previous views of the sway.
    It could also do with a key to explain the results and categories of the data e.g what is defined as a quick glance mean?

  9. Enable to display closed captions of videos automatically

    In my understanding, currently we have to pause a video and turn closed caption on for watching closed captions but I think it is not so good as presentation experience. Please add settings for automatically displaying closed captions like "cc_load_policy=1" in YouTube.

  12. The ability to add company branded headers and footers to the PDF export

    Add the option to include a default website, logo and disclaimer etc. so when clients export Sway to PDF / Word.
    Currently, (The logo to the title card doesn't export?) there is no way to brand these exports or give them any identifying marks like a company logo, header or footer.

  13. Have the table of contents as a "card" option as well which could be inserted at the top of a Sway newsletter.

    Maybe just with the text/hyperlink for each header and without the photos to simplify it?

  16. Disable 'enlarge picture' function + hyperlink

    Being able to disable the 'enlarge pictures' function. I'm currently making text-in-images visuals to get variation into my sway and make highlights, however, users often think it's a link that doesn't work. In addition being able to disable the enlarge function, I'd appreciate a hyperlink function to images and icons.

  18. Name a Sway without title showing

    I love Sway and create dozens of them. I often duplicate them to share samples with clients, and end up with lots of versions of similar sways. There is no way to name each Sway in a way i can easily identify it without opening it and looking through it. Any name i give it shows in the actual Sway headline, which i don't want.

    In other words, not everyone wants the name of the sway to also be a headline. Sometimes use a custom image and embed a title into that image rather than letting Sway set the type.…

  19. Usage Reports in the Office 365 Admin tool or User Adoption PowerBI Content Pack

    Sway should be as manageable as any other workload in Office 365. It should have usage reports accessible to the O365 Global Admin. Usage reports should show how many Sways have been created, viewed, shared, or whatever other relevant actions in the last 7, 30, or 180 days, just like for several other workloads.
