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.

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.

      Hi, thanks for using Sway! Just to be clear, are you asking to have a web page as a content type in Sway (similar to pictures, tweets, etc.)? That is not possible at this time, but we are always trying to make Sway better. Thanks for the feedback!

    • Photo caption font should match text style

      I added a caption to a photo, but it looks jarring and out of place because the text style is different than other blocks of text in my Sway.

          We can see why having a long document would be difficult. Out of curiosity…were there any types of dividers in your original Word documents, such as headings? If so, were they respected in a way that seemed reasonable to you?

          Would you find it useful for a split card command to exist to help break text cards into smaller text cards?

          Additionally, splitting text cards apart by inserting a different card between them has been implemented! Thanks for the feedback. :)

        • Sway Slogan - Share What Animates You

          I think a phenomenal slogan for SWAY would be "Share What Animates You."

          Captures the animation aspect and the social aspect of SWAY.

          • Bigger scroll button on L-R views

            I have my Sway layout right now going from left to right, and I can use the little scroller in the middle of my mouse to easily browse through the photos. However, for those without one of the scrollers on their mouse, or not knowing they can use that to view the images, the < and > buttons in the lower right should be a little bigger (hey, I know how it works but lots of people are a bit slower), and I also wish they would respond a bit quicker when you do click on them, as there is…

                • Change state of elements (such as on hover or on seelct)

                  It would be great to have a bit more control on text elements, like when hovering or selecting a text element, have it change color, go bold or italicize...You could also do this with photos, like pop up photo credits on hover...

                  • Share to Sway

                    The possibility to share to Sway from as many other apps as possible. I would expect at least all Microsoft programs being able to share to Sway.

                    • Insert a 3D PDF with navigation

                      Ability to insert 3D models. One way is with 3D PDFs. Maybe there are HTML versions that could be embedded.

                        • Better color picker

                          The colour picker is confusing. It seems to me that it is random?

                              Thanks for adding Sway to the App Launcher and integrating with Office 365! However, the "watch our vision video" is referencing a video that is no longer on that landing screen--could you put it back, please? :)
