Introducing Microsoft Whiteboard

Microsoft Whiteboard re-creates the familiar feel of enamelled steel board, marker pens and post-its but with a host of additional features. It is available as part of the Office 365 suite of software and within Teams.

Microsoft Whiteboard has been updated.

This update is a big one and makes Microsoft Whiteboard more usable, more flexible, with a host of new features.

The Microsoft 365 Blog has a lot more detail about the update.

Access in Office 365

Microsoft Whiteboard is found in the list of apps on the left hand menu. It may need to be opened first from the menu in the top left of the screen if it is being used for the first time.

Access in Microsoft Teams

Sharing a Microsoft Whiteboard in Teams is done via the ‘Share Content’ button. When you launch a Microsoft Whiteboard you are given the choice of whether you are presenting it or if you would like to make the board available to everyone in the meeting to collaborate on.
