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. 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

    • 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.

      • Export Sway to PDF, Word document, or PPT presentation

        The ability to export a Sway, whether as a PDF file, or as input to Word or PowerPoint. Sway's experience is responsive web, but it's also a powerful modular template engine for other platforms.

          So there is a workaround you can use to help you export your Sway to PDF.

          For now you can…
          1) Click on the … in the top, right corner of your Sway
          2) Choose Accessibility View
          3) Change the browser to be about the size of the paper you’ll use (for best results)
          4) Select browser built in-printing. (On Edge, Chrome, Safari – press Ctrl-P (Command-P on Mac) or use “…”/Print menu. In IE – use Tools (gear icon)/Print/Print Preview.)
          5) Choose paper size, select PDF output. (For best results in IE, please check “Print Background colors and images” checkbox.)
          6) Print!

          Note: This doesn’t work on Firefox, and not all items in your Sway may print (such as embedded content).

          We hope this will help you with some of your needs!

        • Embed Sway directly into email

          Looking for Sway to be embedded into an email rather than just clicking on the link.

          • Printing a Sway

            Sways are a great way to view a project 'on-screen'. If a Sway could be easily delivered in a format easily printed as well as viewed on screen with print templates suggested by Microsoft for each individual project than a Sway would be the ultimate project tool, especially for more formal presentations where a print is required (after-all, many people do also print a PowerPoint).

                • Autoplay media

                  While we scroll through a sway it should have preloaded media like videos and autoplay it when it hits the viewable part of the screen

                    • Create homepages on own domain

                      Sway looks great, and this is what I was waiting for to redesign my own homepage. It would be great if Sway could do that and upload to any domain and administer links between the domains pages.

                      • More formatting and layout options

                        Would be nice to see some "traditional" layout tools such as tables or text justification options to further help swayers(?) design. Thanks!

                        Additionally, it would be really awesome if we could edit the text blocks differently. Like have one be one font size, whereas another is a different color.

                        Italic, Colors, Fonts, Size, Forms etc.
                        Paste images from other websites (without putting them on OneDrive\Documents\Sway)
                        Copy/Paste without the security message
                        Resizeable pictures
                        Drag and drop the structure in the preview
                        An interactive summary

                        • Sway Integrated Into SharePoint Publishing for Curation

                          Integration features into SharePoint Publishing to allow content curation of SharePoint content utilizing Content Search. SharePoint currently allows you to publishing pages, but not curate content. It would be nice if you have a portal hosted in SharePoint to use Sway features to use Content Search to discover content within your portal to use in creating a narrative.

                            • Better offline support

                              Hello,
                              My suggestion is to improve the offline mode for (at least) presenting without the Internet connection. It could be useful to have the possibility of presenting without Windows 10 app or even without any apps (to export it as flash, for example).

                              • Vanity URLs/be able to mask the sway url with my own domain name

                                Sway can be used as a simple website builder... but it is missing one key feature: the ability to mask the url and use your own domain name. I get that you want to promote sway, and that will happen by letting people make great websites. I'd be willing to accept a sway watermark somewhere, if that would help you get your needs met.

                                    • The ability to fine tune layouts, designs, typography, colors, and themes and more

                                      Having the ability to be picky with the layout, designs,etc. as we have with PowerPoint would be awesome. Sway provides fantastic transitions and layouts that would suffice the general user, but having the power to modify specific details would be a game changer. The other idea would be the ability to export and download with compatibility with presentation software would be beneficial to a broad audience. Also have an option that the Sway can autoplay!

                                      • 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.

                                        • Bring back the charts

                                          The charts were great for pupils making a presenatation and wanting to show their data. It meant they didn't have to faff with excel and then import their data, it could be done quickly and easily within Sway

                                            Thanks for your feedback. We really liked this feature too, but we needed to take it down to do more work on it. As a workaround we currently make a chart somewhere else and include it in the Sway as a screenshot. We know it’s not ideal but we’re working on it. :)
