Multiple accounts support
Will be really nice if Whiteboard app will support multiple accounts. Like company, education and personal in same time or allow at least switching.
The account button hovertext says “Sign out or switch accounts.” When it's clicked, it shows only the one account that is currently signed in, and no “Add account” option.
I can't wait for it to be developed. It's essential.
Yes this is an essential function
Not only nice but necessary
Agreed - I have a business and personal account and would like to easily switch between the two. Fully understand the sharing aspect to ensure that there is separation between the accounts
Agree Immensly - this should be a parity for all products in todays age
I found a hack to do it:
Open the whiteboard in the app
Ctrl-A to copy all
Sign out of first account
Sign into new account
Create new blank whiteboard
Ctrl-V to paste

Please support adding multiple accounts like work account along with live/hotmail etc. and allow switching between them.
This leads to a real problem:
Users working from home cannot open the https://wbd.ms/share/v2/*** sharing links from their organisations, as the Whiteboard app tends to be linked with the wrong user account.
The app NEEDS to at least support switching between the private account, and the accounts listed under Settings -> "Access work or school".
I have to rewrite everything I already did just so I can work on my project at home, just because I can't link my work email to Whiteboard like we can do with just about every other app. Not happy! Using Whiteboard through the web is NOT THE SAME.

I fully support it. I have personal account and the app just lock onto that. I want to be able to switch to my work account and use Teams with it. The basic Teams white board is just that: Basic vs the app

I use this app for personal and work purposes. I would love the ability to switch accounts (much one is able to do with the Microsoft To-Do app for Windows 10 and Android).
I endorse this. It will be really good to have multiple accounts support where you can switch between personal and work accounts, without have to sign-out/sign-in everytime.

I have 3 accounts and 1 laptop. Would be great to be able to switch back and forth more cleanly, especially when I’m presenting to a group or in a Teams meeting.
