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. 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.

  4. Make Sway work with Webboards

    Webboards allow publishing SMS from attendees directly into presentations (the conductor choose which question/remark to publish). It would be really great if we could integrate this simple technology (wich does not need app or smartphone) into sway through an API or something likewise.
    Webboards allow also to create simple and beautiful poll which can be integrated has oEmbed object in any service that support them.

  5. Add the setting of “Allow sharing only with the external users that already exist in your organization’s directory” to Microsoft Sway

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    Microsoft Sway の共有について

    Add the setting of “Allow sharing only with the external users that already exist in your organization’s directory” to Microsoft Sway
    ***************
    ■Description(内容)
    Microsoft Sway にて共有を行う際に、ディレクトリ内に既に存在する外部ユーザーとのみ共有する項目がありません。
    そのため、Microsoft Sway の共有項目内に [組織のディレクトリに既に存在する外部ユーザーとの共有のみ許可する] 等の設定項目の追加を希望いたします。

    Currently I have recognized that there is no setting to share the items with external users who already exist in the directly when sharing in Microsoft Sway.
    Therefore, I hope the setting such as “Allow sharing only with the external users that already exist in your organization’s directory” will be added in settings for Microsoft Sway.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  6. to pull pictures from files/albums that were shared with me on OneDrive.

    Right now, when I click on OneDrive, I only see a "Files" button to choose files from. It would be super convenient and awesome to have "Shared" and "Photos" buttons as well.

  7. Your directions don't indicate how to change a design. They are shallow and don't actually work.

    Your directions don't go far enough to show how to change a template or customize colors. They just don't work in real life. More detail is needed.

  10. Let readers modify autoplay

    As readers may have different needs when it comes to autoplay, it would be a good idea to let readers change the autoplay tempo.

  11. Enable Aliasing of Sway

    I am an FTE -- Love Sway. I think it would be good to have the ability to create a unique alias for Sways that correlates to the URL that is create automatically when you create a Sway. Let's say I create a new Sway and wanted to use a URL that I can remember, it would be cool if I can have a feature that would allow me to pair my unique name (something readable) with the auto generated URL.

  12. very basic simple html formatting commands support please

    I love sway and cards.. I think it made lot of learning simple to me.. However as the saying goes by the user like me want more of this amazing product...

    html formats and html5 media formats are the way of the content organisation. i would love to have different background colors and different font colors for all the text and videos i want to load up. Audio files,videofiles embedding would be something i was also looking forward. however simple html contents/file supports/html5 media support must be in the future plan i hope.

  13. Add tel function for dialing and call to action purposes

    I noticed the tel function is not currently supported. I am going to look for a workaround concept, probably a link back to the site, but this might be nice to add in the near future.

  15. Using effects like Morph! That would be the future!

    Sway is a great tool, but it would be awesome to be able to use more effects like Morph in Office PowerPoint 2016.

  16. Charts cannot be added into any useful groups

    Another user suggested adding the ability to add charts to groups, but the result was just allowing them to be added to Automatic groups which doesn't change anything. It would be much nicer if they could be moved into stacks, slideshows, and other groups.

    On second though every card should have that functionality just so the users have some flexibility.
