Duplicate board option/button
Add "Duplicate" on board overview page. This will make it easy to use an existing board as a template.
So frustrating! I made some whiteboard games for my students (checkers, connect 4), which was quite time consuming. I’d love to be able to just duplicate them so the kids can’t accidentally delete my hard work, or so more than two students can be playing at a time.

This is a must have, very important for a good brainstorm session
Essential to the future of this app!
I agree. Microsoft Whiteboard is not very useful to me without the ability to duplicate boards (make a template board that can be reused by copying the original.)
I can do this with Google Jamboard or multiple other Whiteboard programs, so this is a rather essential feature
I agree. There should be a way to save a board as a template. This would also allow customization of provided template to match a teams working model better.
Import of PPT or DOCs can provide visual framework for things like process mappings and SIPOCS, but the functional elements are missing. I should not need to re-add them every time.

This is such an important requirement.

Unbelievable that MS Whiteboard has zero management functionality on its whiteboards. You can create a new one and delete an existing whiteboard. Export to png is useless, because it destroys all intelligence. Why not a full export to XML and create a whiteboard standard exchange format?
you can use the lasso tool wich crl+c and crl+v

A duplicate button would be great. We have many instances where we would like to be able to share a template so that others within the company can use.

This would be very helpful as I use the whiteboard to draw out application architecture ideas. Duplicating the whiteboard would be useful in working through architecture alternatives.
In my opinion, this is the most usable option, that Microsoft whiteboard doesn't have and other collaboration apps have.

This would be very useful. I have tried to find an easy way to copy a whiteboard that I prepare as templates for use in multiple classes.
