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.

  2. Card Break or Line Break

    Text on a text card immediately following an image card continues directly below/beside the image card rather than beginning as a new card.
    Option to force next card to start in the place of the next card and not inline as it were.

    I have a horizonal scrolling sway and text is appearing below images where I would like it to appear beside it where the next card belongs.

  3. Browse sways from my organization, or appear in DELVE /Office 365/

    Its very compatible if the sways created by our organization is could be explored through DELVE or Sharepoint site, since its part of knowledge sharing so why not to let it be exploreable, manageable
    Maybe you guys already doing something great about it,

    Sway is great to use. I love it

    The Sway team wants to make content groups in Sway work better for you. We’d like to learn from you – whether you use groups in Sway, how you use them, what you like and what you’d like to see changed.
     
    Please fill out this short survey to help us!
    https://forms.office.com/Pages/ResponsePage.aspx?id=v4j5cvGGr0GRqy180BHbRymE30rVh0BOiw9HRUTVeDVUNkUyQlFYNlJSVUlDWkU1VEwwVklGWU9XWi4u

    Also please tell us what types of layouts are you trying to achieve that Sway isn’t allowing you to do yet? Let us know in the comments!

    Thanks!

  5. Choose from multiple paths trough my presentation

    I dont want my presentation to be a single strand of information, but spontaneously decide which slide/card to go next according to the situation.
    If i could put links between cards of similar topic, i could choose where to go next during the presentation.
    So i can easily adjust my presentation acc. to different audiences, times and questions, without editing the presentation.

    This is definitely something we’d like to ultimately build for Sway! What types of scenarios do you see yourself building something like this? Personal stories? Reading materials sent out to colleagues or to a class? Something else? Let us know in the comments!

  6. Embed in SharePoint

    I would like to be able to embed Sway into my SharePoint site using the content editor web part.

  7. Integrate it with Microsoft Powerpoint

    I tried making a sway (or whatever you call to the product of this software) and found that it is an easy way of organizing your thoughts when doing a presentation.

    Instead of putting your ideas in "Outline" in Microsoft PowerPoint, I think organizing it this way (I mean the sway way XD) makes it more easier and adorable.

    Thanks for the feedback! How do you imagine Sway integrating with PowerPoint? Do you want to be able to convert one to the other? What functionality would you expect to see in Sway or in PowerPoint if they were integrated? Let us know in the comments! :)

  9. Improve 'Invite' feature

    When sharing a Sway with specific people, email addresses are requested but no notification is sent to those email recipients to let them know that the Sway has been shared. This is contra to how specific sharing from OneDrive/SharePoint works leading our users to believe they have shared Sways when, in fact, the recipient has no knowledge of the fact that they have been granted access. To improve, please generate an email to email addresses specified (like the one that comes from sharing files from OneDrive) CC'd to the owner(s) letting them know that the Sway has been shared. Also,…

  10. Insert a live twitter hashtag or feed

    I would like to be able to insert a twitter field, which I can set to a specific #hashtag, which would then show the e.g. newest 1-3 tweets.

  11. Support Photosphere or 360 degrees panoramas

    I really, really wish there is support of panoramas in Sway. This should include 360C photos as well as "normal" wide panoramas. Like in Google Photos or Flickr

  12. export

    We would like to export/import a Sway. This way our students could export a Sway from their school account and import it to their privat account, when they're leaving school. Or one teacher could export his sway and give it to another teacher who then could import it and adapt it to his needs in his own account. As a workaround we can share a sway, open it with the other account and duplicate it then. But a export/import possibility would be way better. Thanks.

  13. Add Additional Owners (not authors)

    I would like to see the ability to add multiple owners who have full control of the Sway and its settings.

    This would be in addition to the collaborative functionality available via the edit link. A co-owner would be able to modify Sway settings and properties.

    Here are a few functionalities that are currently unavailable for co-authors:
    1. Save as Template option
    2. Modify View settings with Settings Menu
    3. Share 'Edit' and 'View' links within the Share Menu

  15. More embed options

    I love how you can now add embedded content to a Sway. However, I would also like to add content from more services.

  16. Template Sways

    or edit examples like the "Sways we love" to learn how other Sways use the Sway tools.
    Maybe this could be realized through a tutorial.

  18. Set photo as background image for entire Sway

    It would be great if the user could set a custom background (e.g. a photo or color) which is always shown as the background. Text and other content in a Sway would appear in front of this background.

  19. 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.

  20. Photobooks

    A photo book is still an amazing way to capture memories and particularly the older generation appreciates it very much....I wonder if the AI/machine learning of Sway could help creating such a book out of an existing sway and move it to respective printing companies for the finishing touches.....such a feature could get printing companies to endorse SWAY and/or build add-ons in the future....
