  4. Please allow guest users

    Whiteboards cannot be shared with external users (guests). this is increasingly an issue when we start to use this within Microsoft Teams.

    Please allow guest access to Whiteboards

  5. 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.

  6. "Break" Participants into different virtual meeting rooms during Teams meeting

    In the zoom they have function where the meeting host, can "send" the participant into different virtual break out rooms, and let them work on a task, or discuss for a predetermined time e.g. 30 minutes. And then be automatically send back to "main" meeting. This function would be extremely helpful for e.g. leadership trainings, workshops, co-creation etc. Where too many participants don`t allow for same degree of collaboration and interaction.

  7. Button needed to erase whiteboard

    There needs to be a clear-all button on the whiteboard in Teams. There should also be a re-center button.

  8. Have multiple hosts (cohost) function to breakout

    We have been looking for cohosting function to breakout room. This will allow to have a primary and secondary host to manage a breakout room. This is important if primary host had internet connection issue then second host can take over the function and manage the breakout room.

  9. Text find button

    Since the board is endless, it would not be bad to add a button that will transfer you directly to the text.

    Or add particular remarks about the student. Hw not done or absent for three classes in a row etc.

    Queries from participants in a section option.

    We also need reward stickers.

  11. OneNote as an Active Whiteboard tool for MS Teams?

    Why not link/merge OneNote as an Active Whiteboard tool for MS Teams?
    During a Teams meeting, add One Note as an Active Whiteboard and by default gets saved with the user who initiates it. Also any whiteboard can be shared with any user over email.

    I think this will be a great functionality to have.

    Similar to what SFB always had. SFB Whiteboard could be saved within One note as well.

  12. Synchronize zoom level and focus

    When a presenter is presenting, the viewers could get lost by zooming in somewhere in te whiteboard. So if there was an option to sync zoom level and area of focus of the presenter and the viewer I think it would be great!

  17. Link or show view of remote user's view

    When in a meeting, you can't see where the remote collaborators are in the screen. I'd like one or both of these features.
    1) link my view to a remote collaborator (If I'm working with userX, right-click on their avatar and say "link my view" and then whenever the user zooms in/out or moves around, my screen view would also move (if my pen isn't actively writing/drawing something).
