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. a more frequent reference to the art of solder godding

    it is our humble opinion that swaying will look real dank if u will provide us with sufficient access to the art of soldering. soldering is more than a faze, its a lifestyle. and everyone must respect that.

    • I want to save my sway to a flash drive. No one seems to know how to do that.

      I want to save to my flash drive or to my computer. Not interested in accessing from sway.com

      • 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!

        • Navigation Bar

          I really enjoy Sway, and it would be quite helpful if we could have a navigation bar template to link different sways together, maybe even allowing for a collapsible navigation bar. I think this feature would allow for many more uses of Sway!! Right now you have to make up a "fake" navigation menu, but it's still pretty clunky.

          • Encryption at rest

            Your site says you do encryption over the wire but not at rest. When will you support encryption at rest. This is needed for large companies to use this product and to be able to meet their security requirements

            • more than one person to edit at the same time

              I would like to allow a group of students tow work on the same SWAY at the same time the way Google slides allows multiple people to edit at one time. Right now only one person can edit at one time

              • To allow pictures geotagging.

                Today pictures taken by smartphones and many cameras include (or may include) geotagging. It would be a good idea to utilize this information once it is presented. Won't it be interesting to see exact GPS coordinates for such a picture?

                • editing by another person

                  I would like to share a sway with my team. However when they are visiting clients they sometimes wish to edit the sway to personalize it for their clients. Can they from my sway make their own version, without editing my own version?
                  Thanks

                  • Sway sin conexión a internet

                    Debería haber haber opciones para usar las presentaciones de Sway sin una conexión permanente a internet, algo así como Prezi, que se pueden bajar como un archivo ejecutable, porque no todos tenemos una conexión permanente y cuando se tiene que ir a un lugar a otro sería bueno poder contar con la presentación, sin la necesidad de internet.

                    • Embed an Office 365 Sway into SharePoint Online

                      Right now in Office 365 there is no embed code option for a Sway created in Office 365 (unlike the commercial version where you have embed code). This prevents the easy use case of embedding an Office 365 Sway in SharePoint Online. This is a popular use case for departments to easily create interactive Sways and then have them inline with other content on their department sites in SharePoint Online.

                      • Add slugified name for my sway instead of that random name at the end of url. And ability to add html meta tags.

                        If you change the publicly shared sway url to something like https://sway.co/{userName}/{slugifiedSwayName} it would be easier to share. And if also we could add html meta tags to make them easier for search engines to crawl and index them, It can be a good replacement for bloggers.

                            Link to my Twitter account so I can search and view in my twitter lists for specific tweets and then just drag and drop them onto a sway card. I would also be able to search for specific hash tags, trending topics etc, select and insert them.

                            • Share link to edit from the my SWAYS menu list

                              When I am looking at my list of "My SWAYs" files I would like to be able to copy a link to share that allows viewers to edit right from this menu. Right now I have to open each SWAY to get the link that allows editing. I duplicated a bunch of sways so each group of students in a class will get their own unique sway. Since I have multiple classes, I had to repeat this process multiple times. It would be great to be able to get the links more easily.

                              • Notes

                                I am using Sway for company tutorials. So my titles are titled to state the lesson number and what software we are learning. I have 20+ Sways with essentially the same title, which was directed by my superior. It would be awesome to have a 120 character limit note underneath each Sway to add a quick description.

                                  Play button, similar to Windows 10 application, on iOS app so we can airplay to a TV and have our "New Plants for 2017" presentation play on loop.

                                    • List view for my Sways

                                      When you have many Sways, the view with the small pictures is not useful. You always have to scroll a lot to find the correct onw. A list view would be helpful.

                                      Thanks and best regards,
                                      Fritz

                                      • Links in Sway - option to choose, if they open in new window

                                        When following a link from one Sway to another sway, the linked one always opens in a new window. An option to choose, if a link (sway to sway) should open in a new browser window or should be opened in the same window would be helpful. Otherwise you end up with a lot of open IE windows.
                                        Thanks and regards,
                                        Fritz
