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.

MS Whiteboard - simplest way to make

If you wanna use it in your professional world, then go for it. It will help you in meetings and presentations.

Pros

Its easy to use and there is no better way to express your ideas than by writing it on MS whiteboard. This is a digital whiteboard which helps us to create drawings, write text, insert image, explain anything we want to, etc. It looks like a magical wand that allows you to do whatever you want to create on a white board. I am using t for my official presentations and totally in love with it.

Cons

I face some issues in inserting icons or resize the notes but other than that whiteboard software is totally useful and easy to use. I don’t have any major concerns with it.

My digital whiteboard! Great for Online Collaboration

Reviewed on 29/03/2023

Microsoft Whiteboard is an excellent tool for online collaboration and communication.

Pros

As a professor, I found Microsoft Whiteboard to be a great tool for online classes. It's intuitive and easy to use, and I can draw and explain technical aspects of architecture with ease. The software also allows multiple users to draw on the same whiteboard simultaneously, making it perfect for team meetings and collaborations.

Cons

While the software is user-friendly, drawing with a mouse can be difficult. It's much easier and efficient to use a drawing tablet for better precision and control.

I was able to create a shape for a logo I was working on for a client - it just took double the time to finish due to the software freezing.

Pros

I have a brand new HP Spectre (1TB) that comes with a digital pen and MS Whiteboard came with the device. I'm pretty tech savvy and the interface is VERY simple (for me too simple) - so if you want it just for scribbling notes during a meeting or sketching out something to illustrate a thought, fine. It can do that. There are different basic colors, a rainbow color, and two pen tips, an eraser, basic shapes. You can invite others to collab on your board (but honestly it didn't make it that far for me due to performance issues). The lasso shape is useful to separate items layered on top as there doesn't seem to be a "layers" option.

Cons

Ah, mostly everything. This is not drawing software. This is literally a digital whiteboard, so I got frustrated quickly with it wishing it could do more. When trying to export as an image, it only allows .png and. svg, and neither format worked in any program after exporting. I'd have been fine with the simple tools, but then it started lagging. For every. single. edit. A quick search shows that this is common for the program when you are not plugged in, even if you are full battery. So it's basic, but also a power hog. It didn't improve after plugging in though. It got to the point where I had to completely shut down the program and reboot because it just kept freezing. I'd say if you are contemplating using this, don't. Your IT team will thank you.

I have had a good experience with the software. It helps me express my ideas clearly as I can use a range of mediums like images, text and sketches.

Pros

Whiteboard is an amazing software to use for any kind of professionals. It is easy to use and provides a lot of help during presentation and meetings.

Cons

The only disadvantage I felt is that there are not many options of pens and brushes available. I wish there was a little diversity in colours and types of writing tools.

It is a great software that may be useful for some basic drawing and idea organization

Pros

I like that it offers you some really useful tools to represent your ideas, either handwriting, text and image. Also the fact that you can change the type background in diferent styles you can configure is ver useful. And finally the export to pdf, word or even power point option comes very good in some cases

Cons

I think that if they add more types of pen styles it would let the user make way more types of draws. Also if they could implement a better way to organize the boards that you made would be awesome so you dont have it all in one place being difficult to find an specific one
