Whiteboard for Windows 10

  1. fix heavy disk usage on WhiteBoard when using tablet/pen input, even at idle

    I have Whiteboard on several computers, and I have several tablets, (Wacom Intous L and Smart Podium display). Whenever Whiteboard is just open on any board with handwritten note or drawing it pins the disk of that computer to 100% consistently. While this doesn't seem to slow down other applications or bother me on the desktop, it makes my laptop fan run and drains battery very quickly.
    I use this for teaching, so this gets very annoying when the fan on my laptop runs at maximum, while CPU is idle. the fan noise makes it through my mic to the…

  2. naming of whiteboards - default name derived from meeting invitation.

    The Whiteboard startet from a meeting shows up as "meeting whiteboard". With a lot of online meetings going on it gets messy very quick. The whiteboard can not be renamed from within the board. when you leave may be you forget to name it since you are not asked.
    A default name derived from the meeting invitation could help a lot (in case you have reasonable invitation titles ;-) )

  3. Integrate Whiteboard postIt -notes with Microsoft To-Do

    Since the introduction of Kanban board templates is now in preview, it needs to be evolved with integration to To-Do. Ability to mark the post it note as a task to a person should also
    - add that person to a team
    - modify postIt to be a task note visible (indicator: not done / ready)
    - add that task to person's To-Do
    - mark the postIt done when person marks it done
    Alternatively: ability to integrate with Planner and changes in there would reflect in the post-It.

    It would create a way to visualize team tasks (planner, to-do) and…

  5. Use fonts with special characters for non-English languages

    Offer more fonts, for the text!

    The default font is ugly, not accessible and it lacks special characters for non-English languages.

    You can do better Microsoft!

  6. Change the color of shapes

    I would like to be able to change the color of shapes. You can do it for lines and text, but there's no way to change the color of for example an ellipse shape.

  7. change ruler scale

    Currently, the ruler is in imperial measurements only and for metric users, there is no solution. Either allow for the user to change the units or have an imperial scale on one side and then metric on the other.

  8. Deleting several boards at the same time

    I use whiteboard A LOT and create many boards that are only necessary for a short period of time. When I need to delete them, it takes a very long time to delete each one individualy and if I leave them, it starts to slow down. What I need is a way to select them and delete them all at once. Thank you

  10. Enable search on whiteboard

    It would be extremely helpful if there was a possibility to search the content of a whiteboard or - even better - to search across all or a set of whiteboards.

  13. Add a mindmap feature

    Add a way to create mindmaps https://www.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carte_heuristique to the Whiteboard software. That is very useful and simple solutions do not exist on the market.

    Also make it possible to export the whiteboard in HTML, PDF etc formats.

  14. RGB color for notes

    When you create notes in the whiteboard app, you are current limited to six colors. There are use cases when you would like to have a bigger color palette at hand. Please enable a color selection picker so that you can select the color which you think a most suitable for more notes from an RGB color palette.

  15. "Send Email Summary" Feature not working

    Hi!,
    I noticed "Send Email Summary" Feature not working in Whiteboard. Once I press the Send Email button it does crashes out and even close the Whiteboard App. I am using my company account and I am already logged-in. This is important feature and need resolution as soon as possible.

  16. Additional fonts and colors

    A handful of fonts at least and some colors.
    The pens have colors so why not implement those colors into the fonts

  18. Merge multiple whiteboards

    Sometimes we have brainstorm sessions with multiple teams. Each team creates it's own whiteboard. It would be very handy if we could merge all whiteboards into a new combined whiteboard: the motherboard!

  19. Template editor with drag and drop function

    Using the Microsoft predefined templates like Kanban, SWOT or KWL feels great but unfortunately very restricted too. Please add some sort of a template editor where I can add elements I'd like to use and save it for future whiteboards.
