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.

Need technical support? Please visit the Microsoft Community or the Office Support site.

Thanks for joining our community and helping improve Sway!

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".
(thinking…)

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. Improve (slow) loading time/start-up performance...

    The initial display of a Sway takes quite long time to display (as compared to a conventional web page)

    Please improve Sway initial display start-up time. Especially on mobile devices with less CPU power. Some sort of server caching for the initial page view would be really appreciated.

    • The ability to upload larger images

      The first thing I tried was uploading a 5MB image from shutterstock. It failed miserably.

        • Preview and edit media before insertion

          It would be good if you could preview and edit media content instead of just entering it in.

          • Delete multiple Sways simultaneously

            Please allow me to delete multiple sways at one time. I had to delete each sway individually. It would make the experience of organising my sways much easier.

                    • Add pinterest as resource

                      Pinterest could be a great resource for images and optionally the content associated with the image.

                      • Refresh OneDrive Photo Listing

                        I was uploading new photos from Lightroom to OneDrive, to get them visible in Sway, I had to keep navigating in and out of the OneDrive folder to refresh. A button would be great.

                        • Select all / deselect all button in Add Content Pane

                          I wanted to test how clever Sway is when you put bunch of photos so I picked one of my trips folder in OneDrive and have found out that I need to manually select all photos one by one.

                          It would be great to have a button for selecting all files in current folder.

                            Thanks for the suggestion! In the meantime, here’s something that might help: with a keyboard, you can use shift+select to select the last item in a folder after selecting the first to quickly select all items. After you’ve made some selections, a “clear selection” option is available.

                          • Improved Cut, Copy, and Paste

                            Need robust paste from most common apps, e.g. when I paste from Office apps, I loose all formatting.

                                  A photo book is still an amazing way to capture memories and particularly the older generation appreciates it very much....I wonder if the AI/machine learning of Sway could help creating such a book out of an existing sway and move it to respective printing companies for the finishing touches.....such a feature could get printing companies to endorse SWAY and/or build add-ons in the future....

                                  • Edit Sway directly from canvas (viewing pane)

                                    I would love to be able to view and adjust my Sway in real time from the viewing page. Adjusting my Sway from the Storyline and then needing to click to the right to view changes seems like a time-killer, especially for those trying to personalize their pages to their liking.

                                    • Offer additional sway components/apps in the office store

                                      Offer sway apps from the office store or in sway itself that can be plugged into your sway site such as a PayPal or Stripe app for commerce or a Skype app for web based calls like in Outlook.com

                                        VBA or C# macro language to enable scenarios for automation, animation, interaction, and data sharing. The other Office products are not just tools -- they're amazing platforms for building customized tools. Sway is a great concept. Make it better with Macros.

                                          Switch to different views of the same object (front, rear, from above etc.) to create a tridimensional effect.
