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. 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

  3. Add Whiteboard Tab in Teams

    Inside of a Teams Channel, it would be great to add a Whiteboard tab. By clicking the plus button, I can insert a Word Document, or an Excel Sheet so everyone can reference that file collectively - adding Whiteboard so we can always refer back to it quickly and easily would be awesome.

    Currently, Whiteboard and Teams is limited only to a Teams Meeting (and it's in Preview), which I think uses the Web App (and to be honest, it's not as good as the Windows 10 Whiteboard App).

    Otherwise, keep up the good work. This is like MS's awesome…

    We are working on this, but there is a current workaround that works well for many:

    1. Go to Whiteboard’s Web app (https://whiteboard.microsoft.com), create a new board, click the share link in top right, click “create sharing link” and click “copy”.

    2. Add a new tab in Teams of type “Website” and simply paste in the URL to the Whiteboard you want to share with the channel. Name the tab “Whiteboard”.

    3. Everyone in the channel will now have access to this Whiteboard.

    4. Alternatively, you can paste in “https://whiteboard.microsoft.com” as a Website tab, and it will show the Whiteboard web app in the tab for each individual, instead of one shared whiteboard for the entire channel.

  4. Open Existing Board & Tab App

    Hi,

    To make the integration with Microsoft Teams better I would like to add this:


    • If a whiteboard is created from a team it would be nice if it was easily found from Microsoft Teams. As of now people who didn't join the meeting can't see the whiteboard (unless someone shares it). It would be better if it was attached to the team channel


    • When I start a meeting from Microsoft Teams and share a whiteboard I would lite to be able to open an existing whiteboard. Sometimes we don't want to start from a clean slate but from an…

  5. Add participant 'laser' pointer that shows their name

    Add participant pointer that shows their name similar to the "laser pointer" in Skype's Whiteboard.

  7. Allow Whiteboard during call/IM, not just meeting.

    Would like to have Whiteboard available even if not in meeting. Helpful for informal team meetings.

  8. 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.

  9. Record Whiteboard during meeting

    While using Whiteboard in the meeting and someone recording the meeting, it is visible to participate, but it is not present in the recording.

  10. 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…

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  17. 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)

  20. 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.
