    Microsoft Whiteboard app has functionality to add notes, documents etc
    However when you use the Microsoft whiteboard in a teams meeting you only have limited draw functionality.
    Same functionality should be available

  3. Mind mapping tools

    Mind maps/concept maps are used widely in education. Whiteboard should add mind-mapping tools including arrows that can snap to notes/pictures/objects. This functionality exists in PowerPoint but on PowerPoint the canvas is often too small for collaborative mind mapping.

  4. Provide full functionality across Whiteboard in Teams, WindowsApp, Web

    The 3 versions of Whiteboard all have completely different functionality - nightmare for user adoption! Please align the functionality across the Whiteboard apps so they all have full functionality.

  5. Export Whiteboard to Excel or Word

    It would be great to export the text boxes and notes to a Word or Excel so that you do not have to type the ideas you are collecting again after the brainstorming session is finished and you want to work with the results.

  6. Music Staff as a Background option

    Music teachers need a music staff as a background option. It's just multiple rows of 5 horizontal lines with some space between the rows. See file for example.

    I'd rather use a staff paper background than upload multiple pdfs files. The pdfs would slow down Whiteboard.

  7. Maximum zoom out to view full whiteboard

    Currently you can get lost by being too far zoomed in (there's no left-right/up-down scroll buttons) and being in a large blank space - it would be nice to have a hotkey or button on the toolbar to do a maximum zoom out, framing the entire whiteboard in a single view. User can then zoom back in to where they want to go. If there's no content, we can just go back to 0x0 @ 100% zoom.

  9. Add access for all meeting users, regardless of their account type

    When organizing a Microsoft Teams team meeting, the meeting whiteboard cannot be shared with external invited participants.

    Whiteboard should have a functionality to provide collaboration access and identical functionality to all meeting participants without creating guest accounts.

  10. Text in sticky notes

    I would like to add more text to sticky notes and keep it visible - e.g. by the possibility to enlarge notes without enlarging the text size or by reducing the text size - best would be automatic rescaling of text or note.

  11. change color of multiple sticky notes

    I would like to change the color of multiple sticky notes at once, e.g. within a collection / frame.
    Also, it would be nice if I could define the "default" color for new notes added to a collection / frame, e.g. to be able to trace their origin later on easily (say, brainstorming with a per participant collection / color, to be sorted later on)

  16. Save Team whiteboards to the Team's SharePoint, not in the user's OneDrive

    Why does a whiteboard in a Team (added as a Team tab, or started in a channel meeting) not save to the Team's SharePoint site?

    Putting it in the OneDrive of the person who added the tab or started it during the Team Channel meeting does not make sense in the context of preserving Team resources within the Team, not the individual.

  19. Follow presenter's pointer

    The whiteboard in teams meetings is infinite it is very difficult to find where the teacher is writing, specially in the mobile app. It would be great to have an option in which the board follows the presenter's pointer.
