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.

  2. Windows Phone Reader view of a Sway (to enlarge text)

    Sways currently appear with "squint print" on Windows phones such as my Lumia Icon. A "Reader" view of Sways would help people who have a hard time dealing with tiny fonts.

    Considering  ·  Sway Team responded

    There is now a text level adjuster for the author of the Sway under Design → Customize. In the future, we may also allow viewers to edit the text size of any Sway they’re currently looking at.

  3. The ability to upload larger images

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

    Hmm…that’s interesting. You should have been able to upload a 5MB image, so you may be hitting a different issue. Were you uploading from your hard drive? What message did you get when the image failed to upload?

  4. ideal sway output

    it would be awesome and amazing if sway could enable me to have same effects as this website.

    That’s a pretty cool website, and we appreciate the suggestion! Interesting use of panorama and vertical structures together. And we’re fans of parallax scrolling over here. :)

  5. Preview and edit media before insertion

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

  9. Add pinterest as resource

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

  10. 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.

  11. 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

    Thanks for the suggestion! Can you shed a little more light on what you are making sways for and how you hope to utilize these different apps? Please let us know in the comments!

  12. Layout photos on various sides of a cube

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

  13. Create detailed pop-ups in photo

    showing an industrial process to a costumer:
    pointing in different part of a tool's photo grant access to different video, graph, quality report, certificates and other details about costs, performance ecc.
    example:
    in the photo of a drill, pointing on the handle will show safety data, on the tip will show performance ecc.

    Thanks for the feedback! Currently, we allow you to click a picture to go into detailed view, but we don’t specifically have zoom.

  15. Pen or Stylus support

    Is pen support added? I am thinking at Surface users like me :-)

  16. Preview animations while creating or editing Sway

    It'd be really nice if there were a way to see what the animations were going to look like without going into the full preview view (which you'd have to leave if you want to change the animations). It'd just be nice for exploring the different layouts quickly.

  17. Text cards should be displayed separately when viewing/consuming a Sway (in "landscape")

    I think that if each "Text" represents an idea, they should to presented one at a time (like an slide in powerpoint...)

  18. Record a object transition

    And also when inserting an object I want to be able to modify its position using the mouse and a record button which function like a position recorder of an object

    Thanks for the suggestion! What are you trying to do with this type of recording? Are you looking to enhance animations or to try and illustrate a point or a concept? If you share your specific scenario with us, it’ll help us better understand your request. Please let us know in the comments!

  19. Let the input be easier

    The idea I made of Sway was an I/O software... And I discovered a wonderful output generator... Please let me include content "à la volée" : Let me write or copy text quickly, add photos or videos for further layouts or adjustings... If possible :) Otherwise I will keep my OneNote nearby ;)
