Whiteboard in Teams

  1. Make names of posters visible to teacher, add approval so notes don't appear until approved, ensure students can't edit other posts.

    By making names of posters on Whiteboard visible to teachers, they can see who is posting (and also who is posting inappropriately). If you add a post approval function to posts this helps teachers keep control of the task and and keeps task on track. It must also make sure that students cannot edit or delete other students posts! These changes will then create a tool which can be used instead of Padlet or Nearpod Collaborate, both of which are currently better than using Whiteboard with a class as they offer more control over what is being posted.

  2. 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?

  3. 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…

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

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

  7. 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.

  8. Make sure you can draw using a touch screen

    When I tried to do it with my finger it didn't work even though my computer is touch screen. I vote that we should be able to write with whatever we want to. Like are finger, mouse, pen, and so on.

  12. 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!

  13. 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. Now that so many of us are working remotely...

    ...Microsoft needs to put in a lot more effort to making Teams, and especially the Whiteboard, a leading product in this realm. The functionality is poor and when compared with even free Miro it is appalling.
