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.

Sway for iPad & iPhone (iOS)
Do you use Sway’s iOS app? We’d love to hear your feedback on the Sway for iPad & iPhone page.

Need technical support? Please visit the Microsoft Community or the Office Support site.

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. stream

    I need to be able to embed an MS Stream video into a sway. Not just the link. The video should play inline.

    • tap

      Sway really REALLY needs the TAP feature that is available in Word and Outlook. I want to TAP into reusable content, charts, tables, pictures and SmartArt from other documents. Please Sway has really become an awesome program but I need TAP. I am training users to collect their information for a Sway in WORD so that they can TAP into other reusable content. I am having them save the word document and use it to start their Sway.

      • stamp

        Hi

        In our company we need to have confidentiality stamps and a corporate branding like color bars in the bottom, can this be achieved by Sway?

        Thanks

            Hi, You already have the ability to see the number of people who have viewed a given Sway. Just look at the number in the corner of the Sway, when you are on the sway.com/my page. If you’ve voted on this for other reasons, please comment about the functionality that you’re looking for. Thanks!

            • 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.

                • Play settings for public

                  When a sway is shared publicly via link. Viewers from the general public can see the sway and they can click to see the next page/side. But they can't click a Play button to allow for the Sway to automatically progress and loop.

                  I think I used to be able to do this, but now it seems to have changed.

                  Please fix this functionality.

                    • Power Bi Embedded Capabilities

                      Power Bi's service capabilities have changed in a way which will make Sway's existing workflow for embedding dashboards unusable. This is very unfortunate, because Sway provides an excellent venue for quickly and easily sharing dashboards.

                      It would be excellent if Sway could add functionality to embed a Power Bi dash using the "Embedded" workflow. Bonus points if you can tie in buttons that can link to the API functionality.

                            • The layout of an exported Sway should be the same as the Sway it was exported from.

                              I tried Sway a while ago, but the lack of offline viewing options rendered it useless.
                              When I saw that an Export feature had been added, I gave it another go.
                              Foolishly, I created a new Sway, rather than trying to export an existing one.
                              What a waste of time. Having spent time formatting my Sway to look how I wanted it, I exported it to PDF, but when I viewed the PDF, the layout had changed, so it didn't resemble my Sway.

                              • Host sways in O365 SharePoint

                                Instead of sharing on sway or as a pdf i want to share my sways on Office365 SharePoint where all my other content already resides. I also want to embed videos and other content in my sway that exists on SharePoint. I would expect a sway to be just another App that I can add to a site, just like a document Library or custom list. and for which the permissions are set in SharePoint.

                                  The audio volume control seems backwards. To increase the volume, you should slide the bar to the right, not left.

                                    • Sway: Make a copy

                                      Would like for learners to make a copy of a Sway created by teacher (as a template). Cannot seem to do that without giving learners edit access to the original. Is there a way to have kids copy and duplicate a Sway?

                                      OR...have the ability to create our own template?

                                        I'd like to add buttons to Sway for an interactive experience, so that users can choose to click on option A, B, or C. Clicking on one should jump them to that location in Sway.

                                        • removing underline in hyperlinked titles

                                          It would be great to be able to remove the auto underline for hyperlinked titles.
