Expand WhiteBoard availability for GCC tenants
Currently the Whiteboard is not available to GCC customers. My Customer has seen the benefits and has requested the capability be added to the Government Community Cloud (GCC)
Please add this feature. This is an essential tool for remote meetings.
As remote working becomes more of the normal work environment this tool will be more valuable. Please allow GCC access to the Whiteboard feature.
I am not sure why this is not available to GCC, but whiteboarding is a critical piece for technical teams while in the office. Not having this feature for remote teaming is a serious disadvantage for MS in this space.
Need this feature added to GCC
This feature would greatly enhance our capabilities in staff development.
This feature would be great collaborating with Teams for our meetings. Please look at all the features within Microsoft that the GCC could use in our New World because remote working will not be going away. People huddled in conference rooms will be a thing of the past. Microsoft has a chance to shine in our virtual world.
Please allow this feature in GCC. Also...allow To Do
Please allow us to use this feature. Very useful for meetings, one offs, and just thinking.
Please add this feature asap!
Would be useful in all meetings..."a picture is worth a thousand words..."
Please make Whiteboard available for GCC users. We've come to rely on Teams and lacking this integration has become a pain point.

Yes, We have looked at it also, and with the current situation with COVID-19 - this tool would be invaluable to my customers. Please add to GCC as soon as you can.
Thank you for your attention to this matter.

We need this now. It limits are use especially with a 10,000 surfacehub and regular GCC users trying to collaborate. It should be seamless with or without a hub. It's incredible how many features GCC users don't get compared to commercial licencees.
Lawrence Brillon commented
Please move up the availability of this feature for GCC tenants. The need for this is immediate.
I was just told by ORNL IT that they were told by Microsoft that whiteboard capability is not available yet with no time frame on when it will be available. This feature is really needed right now for all the
national laboratory researchers that are working from home and trying to collaborate better.

I had a support ticket opened today and they did confirm that the plan is still Q4 2020.
Thank you for your feedback. I am glad to learn you have added your request to the product group for this feature to become available.
The tentative plan is to release it on Q4 CY20 for moderate GCC customers.
I would like to know if you require further assistance from my end.
I will be looking forward to a response from you.

is there any update on when this will be available in GCC?
Zak LaJoie commented
Please add this feature. We need it due to the lockdown and remote meetings now.
This is something my agency could definitely utilize, especially while we are on lock-down due to coronavirus
Last thing I saw estimated Q4 2020 - that was prior to all this corona though
