Get Whiteboarding with Microsoft Whiteboard App
The new Microsoft Whiteboard App is a freeform digital canvas where people, ideas, and content can come together for creative collaboration. The app is built for anyone who engages in creative, freeform thinking before getting to their final output. It’s designed for teams that need to ideate, iterate, and work together both in person and remotely, and across multiple devices.
The limitless surface ensures that imagination has room to grow, and there’s always space for everyone’s ideas. Bring in teammates whether they’re across the hall or in a different part of the world with real-time collaboration across multiple devices you can see where everyone is on the board and the updates they’re making — whether they’re adding images, putting up sticky notes or creating diagrams. Now even remote workers can easily join in and contribute to the discussion.
Microsoft Whiteboard lets you create in whatever way feels most natural to you. The pen-first, touch-first technology lets you make fluid gestures with your fingers or draw out finer details with your pen. Using your pen, you can jot down notes, draw precise illustrations, or search for images on the web. Using your fingers, you can swipe to different sections of your board, turn the virtual ruler to the angle you want, and drag and drop images to create a photo stack. Whether you use pen or touch, Microsoft Whiteboard recognizes your intent and delivers your desired outcome in an instant.
With Micros White board, you can use intelligent ink that recognizes your freeform drawings and turns them into standard shapes so it’s easy to create great-looking tables, diagrams, and flowcharts, And unlike traditional whiteboards the app automatically saves your boards so you can pick up where you left off or share links to your boards so others can build on top of your work. No more need to take photos of your canvas or to email photos to others when you need to get them up to speed.
Turn Whiteboard On or Off
Microsoft Whiteboard contains an on/off switch, to give you some control with the rollout of this within your organization. The Preview switch is currently off-by-default, to give you a chance to explore the new capabilities. As the product is rolled out in the summer of 2018, this experience will be turned on-by-default, unless you explicitly turn it off.
Also, the updated version of the Whiteboard Windows 10 app will be available for download from the Microsoft Store. Users in your organization will be able to download and log into the Windows 10 app, as long as Whiteboard is enabled for your organization.
This has administrative controls to enable and disable. This feature will be on by default, when this change takes effect. If you are not ready for your users to use Whiteboard, please disable by going to the Office 365 Admin center \ Settings \ Services & add-ins \ Whiteboard, and Turn Off Whiteboard for your entire organization.
