Sway

Welcome to Sway’s Suggestion Box!

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 regularly review the ideas and incorporate them into product planning discussions. We will read all suggestions and respond to every suggestion that gets at least 20 votes. We may also merge and rename suggestions for clarity.

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 boxes, 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.

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

Standard Disclaimer
(Our lawyers made us put this here ;-) )
Please note that the Sway Suggestion Box is moderated and is a voluntary participation-based project. If your submission is not a product feature suggestion it may be removed. Please do not send any novel or patentable ideas, copyrighted materials, samples or demos which you do not want to grant a license to Microsoft. Your submission is subject to the UserVoice License Terms.

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. Sway to build entire websites

    I just think it would be an awesome one stop shop. Newsletters, prints, webpages, and it's all so easily connected to our email and PC.

    • Card Sorter for Sway

      Sway has some features that make the end product very engaging for the intended audience. However, because your scrollbar shrinks as your Sway grows, it's difficult to rearrange cards. I would like to see a feature similar to the Slide Sorter in PowerPoint that would make it simpler and quicker to sort or rearrange slides.

      • add video comments to a Sway

        I work with deaf students and need the ability to add video comments (in sign language) to provide feedback to their online work (including Word etc). Is this ever going to be a possibility like it is in Google Docs by using Kaizena add-on??

        • I would like sway to be embed into email for marketing use. This programme has so much it could offer.

          A way to embed or copy the HTML of the sway so I can use it for marketing newsletters. even copying the HTML for use with Dotmailer etc would be amazing.

            • to be able to add music.

              You already have creative commons images, why not add music? It would add a lot to a presentation.

              • Notification

                Hi,
                There should be an option in Sway for sending a notification to all the invited members whenever there is a edits/updates made in text, so that every time the admin does not have to send an email or inform the invitees about the updates done.

                  • the edited default "address" send and receive.

                    the ip address for created accounts need to be adjusted on the proper search engine to be modify accordingly when or after logon.. due to the fact that once you created the email its a mission to modify once you have a default name.. but the main issues for me is to recreat the email send and receive address... the dam thing is to "robo" for me. not complex but not easy to either just practical like logistics..

                    • Add Bot Functionality to Sway

                      Add the functionality to have a bot.

                      The nice thing about Sway isn't presenting in real time, but giving users a rich experience they can view on their own. Imagine having the capability to supplement your content with a bot for questions!

                      This should be extremely easy to do by adding the Azure Bot Framework as an embed. The functionality is already there!

                      • Sway as a managed app

                        Would be good to know if the product group have plans to introduce Sway as a managed app (Intune MAMWE in particular) so we can control data and make full use of the client on mobile devices.

                        Thanks,

                        • Return Back from Docs to Sway, What are the More Features?

                          Dear  Microsoft,
                          I am using Microsoft soft products since past, It was awesome. As Docs.com introduced It was best, Unfortunately It has been retiring soon. So that we have only option that is Sway.com. Now it's time to ask your team, when MS will introduced more features( Like URL name, collection, Tags ect for us?
                          Thank You.

                              • Create a teacher controlled live session

                                Allowing users to create a live-session in which the pacing is controlled by a facilitator would be a great addition to Sway. If this tool is being described as a storytelling tool, then Microsoft needs to pay attention to one of the most important aspects of telling a great story, the timing.

                                    • Shared Sways with Editing Permissions appearing in Sway Dashboard

                                      It would be very helpful if Sways that we have been invited to edit would appear in our Sway home page/dashboard. This would make co-authoring much easier as we wouldn't have to hunt for a link every time.

                                      • Use Sway to post Podcasts

                                        I am posting audio using the audio card but I am not able to easily organize the podcasts so that the groups can be easily viewed or grouped together with pictures and audio. For example, there is no card that will allow me to put audio and a picture together. If I organize the audio card (the postcast) and the visual card (a picture of the speaker) together in the grid group, the layout dictates how the they will appear. There is spacing which causes more scrolling. I'd like to use Sway as a user-friendly platform that is allows for…

                                        • Link my Twitter account

                                          Link to my Twitter account so I can search and view in my twitter lists for specific tweets and then just drag and drop them onto a sway card. I would also be able to search for specific hash tags, trending topics etc, select and insert them.
