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.

    • Interaction tracking - visitor clicks on links within the Sway, as well as views & shares

      I use Sway for a monthly newsletter and have "Read More" and "Sign Up" links. A lot of those take us to secure company sites with no tracking, but I'd like to have click tracking from within the Sway, to see how many users clicked to read a whole article, or to sign up for something in our LMS.

      • A "fine Print" Setting

        A way to add fine print in a smaller size at the bottom of a Sway. For the purposes of legal information, disclaimers, phone numbers, ect.

        • text align

          Teachers are asking me how to align text justified in Sway. It would look academically more correct.

            • Support for Google My Maps

              Can you please add support for Google's My Maps embedding.
              You support normal Google Maps, but I have created my own maps, and I want to present them with Sway.

                • 3D

                  As Microsoft is adding 3D viewing in more and more environment:
                  Mixed reality Viewer in Windows10, Remix3D in the Web, 3D viewer in OneDrive/Sharepoint, EMbed 3D in Office Document, I was wondering when it will appear in Sway.
                  Support for glb/gltf is mandatory as well as fbx, obj and stl

                  • Please update your tutorials

                    I teach SWAY to high school students. I showed them a tutorial today from your website to find out the canvas looks nothing like that anymore. Please update your tutorials with your new releases.

                    • to be able to embed Sway in an email

                      to be able to embed a Sway into an email for distribution via MailChimp or Dotmailer. Even just regular email through Outlook would be better than nothing. I love the tool but nobody clicks on links in emails and I need to maintain my readership!

                          • Preview a Sway

                            It would be great to share a sway for review purposes as a preview. Allow the recipients to mark-up questions or comments. Then once resolved, publish the sway with a link.

                                Thanks for this suggestion. Right now, we do have an audio card (so you can add a file, or record something to add to your Sway).

                                Any more information you have is appreciated on how you’d like this scenario to work (ie – does it come from spotify/youtube/a file? should it play the entire time, or just for certain sections? what types of documents would you use this on?)!

                                Thanks again!

                              • Share without Link

                                Currently, when you select to share a Sway, the recipient has to open a link for it to show in their Sway "bin".
                                The ask is for any Sways that are shared with edit permission to automatically show up in the other persons Sway page (either directly, or via a "Shared with Me" area, saving the step of having to open a link first.

                                    • 3D Support

                                      As Microsoft is making a great effort in supporting 3D (in Win10 with Mixed Reality Viewer) in Office365, even in OnedDrive and Sharepoint it's now possible to view 3D files, it should be interesting to be able to use 3D in Sway. the Glb format is a good one with PBR features.

                                      • 3D Support

                                        As Microsoft is making a great effort in supporting 3D (in Win10 with Mixed Reality Viewer) in Office365, even in OnedDrive and Sharepoint it's now possible to view 3D files, it should be interesting to be able to use 3D in Sway. the Glb format is a good one with PBR features.
