Whiteboard in Teams

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

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

  2. Whiteboard in Teams Assignments

    When I develop an assignment in Teams, it asks me for a link to either a Word document, or a section in the students' OneNotes.

    My students have touchscreens and can easily draw on their computers. They find some platforms easier to use this with than others. For example, they prefer OneNote over Word.

    Would it be possible that we upload a question that they can see when they are answering the question, then they show their working on Microsoft Whiteboard? Then when they upload their response on the Whiteboard, it gives me (say) a screenshot of it, which I…

  4. 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!

  5. Visibility of text

    When I was working in Whiteboard with my students and I wanted to type something for them using the text, they could not see it until I finished. I think they should be able to see it as I am writing.

    Also, when I opened a second text box, for some reason it overlapped the first and then my students also could not see the first box.

    It just did not seem to operate smoothly in Teams.

  6. Resize sticky notes

    Be able to resize sticky notes so for example I can have many small ones under a large Header sticky. (see Miro...)

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  10. Add function to evaluate student activities with Teams.

    I wish I could score the activity and contribution between students. As an example, it is possible to compliment the participation of students in one student's activities (suggestion, problem solving, teaching, etc.), and it would be a good way to statistics.

  11. 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.

  12. "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.

  15. 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.

  19. Keep it simple

    I love all the ideas and pretty much most of the new features implemented. I also realise this product is used from lower schools right through to Universities.
    This can lead to there being a lot of unnecessary functionality for some groups.
    My idea would be to have a core set of functionalities. The option to enable all functionalities, and perhaps even an advanced option where you can switch on/off the functionality that you like. It would then save with your profile. you could even allow 3 profile slots - I guess that is getting a bit crazy now!

    This…

  20. 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.
