The Microsoft Whiteboard app is totally awesome, and having a dedicated set of Whiteboard(s) for my Team channels would be a huge added value.  Is this coming?

Hey Brent, this is something we've been discussing. Should have news on this soon!

Hi Brent, Microsoft are currently working on it as confirmed by this user app https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/16938955-add-a-whiteboard I voted, I would recommend you do to, drive as many to it as possible and keep an eye on developments. Hope that helps Best, Chris

The feature confuses me because there is an option in the global Teams policies Powershell command and UI command center that says "allow whiteboard". It's documented in an article updated Feb 2019.. Could someone from Microsoft please clarify this.  Is there a whiteboard feature? If so, more documentation should be provided.
