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.

  1. Provide sway applets for "graduated" infographic display.

    Provide applets that are themselves interactive for "stepping" through data to show sequences, evolution, or progression of a data series or relationship.

    Instead of "changing a page" you are going to the next iteration of the infographic display.

  2. Storyline synced with view mode while scrolling

    When finding a place that needs adjustment, it would be nice if going back to the Storyline meant already at the right place to edit.

  4. 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. :)

  6. 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.

  7. 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…

  10. 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...

  11. 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.

  13. Better color picker

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

  15. Thanks for adding Sway to . . .

    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? :)

  16. Accessible Font Type in Accessibility View

    It would be great if the font type in the Accessibility View was changed to a sans-serif font (e.g. arial, calibri, etc.) to further enhance the accessibility of that view.
