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.

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".

  1. Colour choice for links

    Give a colour choice when displaying links to sites and other media platforms. I see when i click on a link it comes up blue , but never stays that way. It would look amazing if they could be a different colour as i always use a black background and electric blue or any other colour REALLY stands out. !!

    • autoplay

      Like many others I'd like videos in Sway to play automatically. I understand it's possible to embed an iframe that support autoplay. Would it be possible to include information about this on the support pages?

      • Sway - automated creation from a database

        Our business Brisbane Catholic Education is currently looking at creating a completely digital onboarding (new hire or internal transfers) experience. As a part of this process we were envisioning individual schools to have a brief unique video or Sway (default design/style) that provides a basic introduction and background to new employees. Due to currency being a factor when creating digital presentations we were hoping to automate the updating of this Sway based on a database (API).

        It would be great if Sway had the ability to create an automated Sway based on data pulled from an API - (series of…

          • Select only Accessible themes

            Many government departments are limited to creating accessible documents. It would be nice if our users had an option to select only themes the know meets accessibility requirements based on colour contrasts/text sizes. It would also be nice to have template sets for different organisations.

            • Videos linked to a sway

              When you create a link to a website or online content, instead of showing only the phrase that I enter, could it show the website. Usually a video, similar to when I upload a video from my files.

              • presenter view 2nd monitor

                I present a lot (10-20 times a week - but not on sway), and having a preview monitor or presentation view of the next upcoming slide and notes is mandatory. Would be great to have a presenter view? As is, Sway looks to be a great consuming platform for non-live applications and something akin to a web site pop up link.

                • Your tool bar sucks!!!!

                  I can't believe you don't even offer basics in writing or design like changing font syles and sizes like in Word.
                  You can't add or delete photos/images easily in a card.
                  Add basic features for updating and changing the text and images otherwise it's not a valuable tool.

                          I would like to be able to create my own templates and add animation in a drag and drop way. The designs right now are far too restrictive, I don't feel like I can use this in a professional capacity without some more choices

                                I have tried to embed a Microsoft Form, but it displays a block containing a link to the form, rather than the questions.

                                It would be better if the questions could be displayed in and answered from the Sway.

                                • Enterprise Library

                                  I like using Office 365 Sway for guidance documentation within an organisation, but it is a pain that I have to actively share them with other people, rather than them being in a location where people can find them.

                                  In the Sway interface, there are sections for My Sways and Featured Sways. I want something between these; for Enterprise Sways, where any Sways I have shared with my enterprise could be found.

                                  Ideally, there would be a concept of libraries or channels, like in O365 Video, where it would be possible to group Sways together and control access for editing…

                                  • Let me choose the image to go with my SWAY.

                                    Sway is excellent but sometimes the core image it pulls to create the visual link is cut off and doesn't look right. (see attached). Can you let me create my own image to attach to a SWAY so it can be correctly formatted? Alternatively, can you auto format the image so it shows the whole one vs truncates??

                                    • Share Sway with specific people (from Office 365 Home account) - as a way to get off facebook

                                      Allow Office 365 Home account to share Sways with specific people - I would like to do this to share content outside of Facebook. It seems this allows us to share content and control who can see it - thank you.

                                      • to be able to incorporate tables, more options to format font and style, etc.

                                        If this is supposed to be an interactive document, being able to add a table would be nice. Basically, anything from Word 1997 would be amazing.
