  4. Open whiteboard on mobile without joining the meeting

    It is only possible to open a whiteboard on the mobile by joining a meeting with a whiteboard and share it.
    Sometimes I want to use the whiteboard in the team channel or prepare the whiteboard before (or after) a meeting. This is not possible via the mobile phone (android). The whiteboard is not accessible from anywhere.

  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.

  7. Please allow Teams Whiteboard to pass through other service connectors like Pexip to be shown on a VTC Endpoint.

    Whiteboard does not display on VTC endpoints when meetings are joined through third party connectors like pexip. This is incredible frustrating as part of a Hybrid work environment.

  8. 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.

  10. 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

  11. Dynamic Background for collaborative annnotation

    Need the ability to perform collaborative annotation of an application window in Teams, and whiteboard is there/almost there.

    In theory, one could take a screenshot using the snipping tool and import it as a background and this could be marked up collaboratively... fine for 2 dimensional stuff but this is desperately needed for doing concept/design reviews of 3D CAD models where the the view may need to spin pan or zoom in/out on aspects of a model.

    It is not realistic to be in a meeting and ask participants to hang on while I Snip then import a static view.…

  12. 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.

  13. "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.

  14. 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!

    Easy way to take the attendance of the participants or on line class. With time when they enter or exit the class.This list could be saved even when we are on offline or calender.

    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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.
