Microsoft Whiteboard Integration with Teams

Microsoft has added new functionality to Teams meetings to make it even easier for working groups to collaborate creatively. Microsoft Whiteboard is a presentation mode that allows for sketching, storyboarding, and other creative brainstorming during Teams meetings. To start doodling during meetings, follow these instructions: 

  • Join any Teams Meeting. 
  • Select the Share Content button on the top tool bar in your meeting.  
  • In the bottom right-hand corner of the screen under the whiteboard section, select the Microsoft Whiteboard option. 

  • Collaborate using the selection of pens, colors, sticky notes, and text options!

  • When your meeting is over and you want to save your whiteboard, select the Options Menu in the upper right-hand corner of the whiteboard workspace.  
  • Once open, select the option to Export Image (PNG). Also, located in this menu, you have the option to toggle between Other participants can edit and Other participants cannot edit.
