Whiteboard in Teams

  1. 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…

  3. A robust set of templates

    Develop (and allow submission) of a robust set of templates or standard items for functions such as, flow charts, decision tree, bulk sticky notes (variety of colors with a set of 20 created as part of the template), process diagram, mind maps, etc. Each could be included on any board by selection then edited for the specific purpose.

    This would be complementary to the other post about creation of personal/individual templates

  4. 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. 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.

  8. Sticky note font size

    It would be helpful if the font within a sticky would be changeable. Often the font is too small and hard to see.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  15. Optimization of context menues

    There are some bugs using the context menues myself and other users experienced while using the app:
    1) when using german as lanuage context menues are not translated properly.
    e.g. when trying to sort notes the sort order by reaction is not displayed, only "nach..." is shown - equals "by"
    2) sometimes the tooltip is shown and it's not possible to click on the icon e.g. for export or likes..
    Also the place to find the possibilities to sort within a notegrid do not have an icon, sometimes hard to get to the functionalities.

  16. Whiteboard

    I use a Mac book to teach mathematics and do not have an iPad. It would be phenomenal to add the whiteboard features or all functionality to the Mac book as those features are only available on iPad and iPhone.

  17. manual sorting of sticky notes

    Within a frame, there is the option to sort sticky notes by color, feedback or alphabet. However, re-arranging them by drag and drop within that frame seems to be not supported - although it would be the most intuitive way for manual re-arranging (e.g. prioritizing)

  19. 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.

  20. In a teams channel - have whiteboard visible alongside chat - like it is done in Skype For Business

    We set up a team - and for each project that team is working on we open a new channel.
    When cooperating using Skype for Business we would open a whiteboard in the chat and put agreed upon items on there.
    This was always visible for those in the chat, and those invited in could see what had been agreed before they entered.

    The channels in Teams does not seem to have this function - things can be added as separate tabs - but that is not easily visible, having to jump between tabs to see if any updates have…
