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. 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.

    • 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!

        • 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.

          • 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.

            • Manage Templates From Mobile App

              I think Microsoft should be taking a "Mobile First" approach to apps like Sway and make all features available on the mobile app. My primary device is an ipad pro and the inability to save a Sway template on the iOS app means i need to find myself a desktop to use just for thus purpose. We should really be at a stage where we can do everything we used to do on a PC from a mobile device.

                • More features such as underline text, choose size and type of font, center, right align or left align text

                  More features similar to other Microsoft office software. Please include things like different fonts, allow us to move text around, add in text boxes, underline text...
                  Basically all the things you can do in PowerPoint and word as standard please include in this application.

                    • Create a sway on my mobile app and have it look the same on the desktop version

                      I’d like to create a sway from either my mobile app or desktop and have it view the sale (ie look the same) no matter which device you use. Today if you create a sway from your mobile device and then view on your desktop, it doesn’t align and looks different.

                        • Genealogy Family Tree Templates and Story‘s

                          I would like to see some various Genealogy Family Tree templates / options added. Templates which would allow someone to create their family history from multiple perspectives to show an expandable 12+ generation tree. From this be able to tell the stories of their full tree with photos, genealogy bread crumbs, branch trails in smaller genealogy lines and branches, etc.... The ability to both import and export into existing GEDCOM, FTM ect., other Genealogy and/or Microsoft application/software file formats.

                              • Navigation Menu

                                I love Sway, but it would very helpful to have some type of dedicated navigation menu available within a sway. The little button in the bottom left corner opens a navigation page, but it not the universal menu button and its not in traditional location. Some type of permanent menu/navigation tools that was pinned to the top of the Sway would be wonderful.

                                    Need more option on who has access to my files. More that just everyone/no one. Consider who’s in my contact list. Or create a access list.
