  1. Provide full Whiteboard functionality when using it in Teams Meeting

    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. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. Copy paste clip board (image) into Whiteboard

    It should be an easier option to insert images. I.e if you take screen capture it should be possible to paste it direct to the whiteboard.

  8. Bug: Sharing Whiteboard destroys the Whiteboard tab in Teams

    I created Whiteboard as a tab in a Teams channel, viewed it in the online version and copied the share link. As I went back to the tab in Teams, the Whiteboard wasn't available anymore, only through the shared link. Message in Teams attached as png.

  9. Import excel as sticky notes

    I'd like to be able to import a selected column from excel so that each row is a sticky note. This way I can run group sessions in whiteboard to bin the cells into emerging categories.

  10. Clone an object

    Being able to clone an object for unlimited copying would be great. Save on the copy and pasting each time. For example, I would like coins at the bottom of my screen so that I can drag them up to make an amount.

  11. Students can add content, but only delete their own.

    I want to allow students in Teams for Education to add content, but not be allowed to delete anyone else's work. I can't find an option for this. Is it possible?

  13. Fix the lag

    MS Whiteboard is very nice. Great functionality. But often it lags for someone in the meeting so not good for on-the-fly collaboration.

    As a consequence I always use the Skype whiteboard for important meetings because it never ever lags.

  16. Buggy Whiteboard - 4th time!

    Sometimes, when I start sharing whiteboard in Teams, the other participants can only see a black screen and after a while I seem to not be able to even scribble. Once this happened, and I thought maybe I should save whatever was written already, so I opened it in the Desktop app and clicked export. It was outputting a blank SVG and a 10 KB PNG that wouldn't open.

  17. Clear whiteboard in Teams.

    In Teams meetings with Whitboard - be able to clear the whiteboard.
    Currently you have to manually erase it.

  20. Search

    I have a very hard time finding my whiteboards, as I have a stack of 100+ (some have names, most don't).
    I'd like to see a search capability for those that have names, or where OCR can recognize content within them... I also think the ability to create folders or tags would be amazing!
