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. 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.

    • More flexibilty

      Sway is a great product but it is VERY restricted.
      We need the ability to add background colour, resize images or text and move items around freely. If you add these features, Sway will be without a doubt the best presenting program available.

      • to be able to purge the view count periodically, or be able to break down views into, for example, views this week.

        So if I update something I can see how many people have viewed it since I've updated it, without having to actually write down the number and do maths each time! I know I could duplicate the Sway, but unless I can file them (administratively, for me) it will just clutter up my view unnecessarily.

          • 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??

                      The play button doesn't work properly for videos (Edge mobile): it's really difficult to start the video.

                      Works with all other browsers.

                      See attached files.

                        • The fullscreen button loads an empty page with Edge 40.15063.0.0

                          When clicking the fullscreen button in Edge 40.15063.0.0 (Windows 10) then the screen stays black.

                          It was working before, and still works with Chrome and Firefox.

                            • Have a directory of all Sway documents in my organization

                              The landing page for Sway today includes the following: Edited, Viewed, Deleted

                              I would like an additional category called "My Organization" which lists all of the Sway document that have been created.

                              Having one simple location to see all of the organizations Sway documents provides a way to check adoption/usage and also as a reference point for individuals wishing to create a new Sway.

                              This 'hub' would also server to promote knowledge sharing and highlight new content.

                                    Can you please add support for Google's My Maps embedding.
                                    You support normal Google Maps, but I have created my own maps, and I want to present them with Sway.

                                        • Have an editable table of contents.

                                          The table of contents does not show enough information to truly help with navigating larger sways. The table of contents should show the fulling heading, rather than just a preview of it.
