Whiteboard in Teams

  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

  2. 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. 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.

  6. 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.

  9. 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!

  12. Keyboard Shortcuts

    I would like Keyboard shortcuts to functionality like adding a sticky note or adding text instead of having to mouse to the icon and click on it each time, much easier to keyboard shortcuts if i'm already typing.

  14. List/Grouping/Columns of related items in a single collection with a title.

    The ability to add a column(or list), then add text/notes/items to the list so that all the items are part of a group. The entire group/list can be moved around and contain all the items belonging to it. You can have multiple groupings(ie: Pro/Cons/PlanA/PlanB/etc.)

    This makes it easier to associate topics/ideas together during a brainstorming session and list all the items under the together. Also makes it easier to move around, as all the items are moved with list.

  15. Add ins for subject specific images

    Have optional add ins for subject specific images to allow for quick illustration. For example:
    - Science collection: apparatus line drawings for diagrams, periodic table, cells, electron structure template;
    - Maths collection: compass, protractor, calculator;
    - Psychology collection: lobes of the brain, midsagittal brain, neuron, limbic system.

  16. Show the mouse cursor of the remote user who are connected to the whiteboard

    Currently, I have to use Skype or Phone to communicate with a remote colleague to brainstorm and draw up some ideas using Whiteboard.

    But the challenge is that I cannot see my remote colleague's mouse cursor or pen. For that reason, it's not always easy for me to quickly understand which element, topic or item he/she is trying to mention or explain to me on the board.

    To solve this problem, we both have to use Teamviewer or some kind of Remote Desktop Screenshare software.

    It would be so much more convenient if everyone who is connected to a shared…
