Sway for iPad & iPhone (iOS)

Do you have ideas or suggestions for the Sway iOS app? If so we’d love to hear them. 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.

If your feedback is not specifically for the Sway iOS app, please submit your feedback in the Sway Suggestion Box.

To help make sure your feedback is directed to the most relevant channel possible, please categorize your feedback. You’ll see this option appear once you type in your idea or your feedback! (If you’re unsure, just submit it to the general category.)

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. Option to attach multiple documents (.docx, .pdf, .ppt)

    I am an elementary teacher and I believe Sway could revolutionize how I create and share weekly newsletters, but it is missing the ability to attach or imbed documents that often need to be sent home (permission slips, my welcome back power point, copies of school paperwork, etc.). I really want to use Sway this year, but will not be able to unless this feature is added! Please, please consider!

    • To be able to add video directly from my iPhone video gallery.

      Today you can click to add a video from your mobile device and after you select the video to add, it doesn’t appear in your sway. Would like to be able to add video from the iPhone.

      • I would like to be able to move my stuff around in the preview section vote if you agree

        This will be good to make the sway look how you cpwant not how the app generates it.

        • Get rid of the “created by sway” footnote

          I want to get rid of the “created by sway” footnote at the end of every sway I create. I am 365 customer, yet can’t see this option anywhere on my ios (ipad pro) frontend.

          • Limit notification for Data input

            Have a notification when the limit of material added to a Sway has been reached as what occurs now is that I add and add photos, then when I look at the Sway in the finished form, at some u known point, photos included in the original are not in the final version. This results in making a duplicate Sway, deleting photos up to where the photos that are not in the final version are seen, so that the photos not in the first Sway are in the second Sway, or Part 2. If while making the Sway, it would…

                • I would like to know when my Sway is 'full' before uploading

                  I can only 'discover' that an end section of my Sway doesn't show when I upload/view end product - I assumed it's run out of space.
                  I then have to start a new Sway and - one by one, text by text, photo by photo - redo the missing section.
                  A warning of space limitation during the building stage would be helpful and as would a cut/copy and paste function of a whole section into the new sway.

                  • To drag and drop photos, videos from my safari to the sway.

                    As you have an option on windows for dragging & dropping content from the internet directly onto sway, i would like to embed that idea into sway so as to working on sway on my iPad eve more powerful.

                            It would be cool to have a setting where we could personally sign our sways with our hand written signature. Until then I'll type my name at the end of the sway
