Whiteboard for Windows 10

  1. 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.

  2. Adjustable eraser

    Especially for use on e-screens in schools the eraser should be adjustable. When I select eraser and just tip the pen on the screen a far to big space is erased at once.

  3. Slow and hangs a lot

    Weird slow rendering bugs, hangs, etc. E.g. when going to the panes to select people to invite.

  4. save templates

    It would be great if Microsoft could allow users to save their own templates so that you don't need to create it from scratch every time you want to us e the same template (eg. customized retro)

  5. disable or lock zoom level

    When i want to rest my hand, the app zooms in and out. An option to disable zoom or lock it on a certain level would be really great to avoid those kind of problems.

  7. User Story Map Template feature request

    It would be good to have a User Story Mapping template to plan/construct software products with MS Whiteboard.

    • Add more fonts - such as a traditional sans serif, not just handwriting

  9. 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.

  10. Add the ability to annotate over a live desktop

    We have online curriculum that we use. Previously all our teachers had ActivInspire installed where a toolbar would pop up and allow them to annotate over live web pages (and allow to scroll while annotating). This is VERY important when they're working in our online curriculum and demonstrating math. Right now they have to screen snip, cut out the workpage then annotate over that. Then if they need a new page they have to keep repeating that process.

  11. make it easier to import PDF files

    When importing large PDF files i would like to be able to arrange them as i want, not only in rows of two.
    Also when zooming into one of the pages i accidently rearrange the whole page (make it bigger, turn it around) so it would be useful to be able to lock all the pages instead of each single one.

  12. 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 ;-) )

  13. Group boards

    It would be great if we could group boards together under a certain category (or section).

    Right now the main menu is an absolute mess (all the boards are mixed together)

  16. Revision History

    For whiteboards, in particular shared whiteboards, having the revision history would be very useful in order to audit who made changes to a drawing last and what those changes were.

  18. 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…

  19. Use Whiteboard as Windows Desktop background

    If teams are collaborating regularly, it might be useful to set a shared whiteboard as the desktop. Then new ideas or completed tasks etc could be visible all the time

  20. 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!
