Microsoft Whiteboard

Freeform digital canvas for sharing ideas and content

About Microsoft Whiteboard

Microsoft Whiteboard is a cloud-based whiteboard software designed to help teams draw shapes, create tables, edit content, and comment at the same time on a digital canvas. The pen-based interface lets users add images, post sticky notes, type, draw, and move content across the canvas.

Key features of Microsoft Whiteboard include templates, collaboration, diagramming, and sketching and annotation tools. The application allows remote teams scattered across multiple geographical locations to share ideas and collaborate on a single platform using mobile devices. Its touch interface helps teams collaborate on the same virtual canvas in real-time or across devices using the application or a web browser.

Microsoft Whiteboard automatically saves all ongoing tasks, enabling users to pick up where they left off. Individuals can create doodles, which can be transformed into lines, shapes, and tables that can be copied, pasted, combined with other content, and shared with team members across the organization, facilitating collaboration to optimize brainstorming sessions.

We are very happy to use it at the first, but after a while we start to see there are some lacking with all the feature that are offered by this software. I have opted to switch to other digital whiteboard software that can fit our work needs better.

Pros

Microsoft Whiteboard is best to be paired when me and my colleague are having an online weekly meeting or online ideas sharing. Sketching ideas and project process and idea map is very easy to do with this whiteboard and help us to interpreted our ideas into visual.

Cons

Microsoft Whiteboard is lacks of details in the feature and the tools. Like the shape option, they only has basic shape and if i need any other shape, it has to be drawn manually and it is very time consuming to do it all from the start.

It would not be fair to have many valuable feature from a free online tool but when we check the alternatives on the market, Whiteboard has a long way to reach current market standards but with the positional power of Microsoft, they will be able to improve their software in accordance with customer expectations.

Pros

Being cloud based makes it easy to use with various users simultaneously. Its adoption to tablet or tablet like touch screen devices is quiet helpful.

Cons

The software shall be modified with additional features especially to be an effective tool for crowded workshops or training activities.

Overall it was a free tool as part of our existing Microsoft Office 365 solution and has given remote teams an option to brainstorm and collaborate virtually. It will take some learning either through their free training resources or if internally created to your organization.

Pros

It was easy enough to download the desktop app and start using immediately. A nice option for team brainstorming sessions while all remote. Collaborative capability with multiple users simultaneously.

Cons

As with most Microsoft products there's a learning curve - takes some time playing around with it to discover how to accomplish the task you had in mind. Still discovering new options and ways to make it more user-friendly within our team. Hard to see everything at once, need to zoom in and out and move around the page a lot if you have a lot of content on one board.
