MS Teams Whiteboard - Compatibility with pen tablet

New Contributor

Hi there, 


I have a specific question around MS Teams Whiteboard. The functionality is great to have but many of the educators I work with, would have very specific things to draw on the board that is hard to draw using a mouse. Are there pen tablets out there that will definitely work with MS Teams Whiteboard to allow educators to draw more complex things with their class? I have looked at Wacom pen tablets but I can't seem to find a definite answer for this question.


Any insight would be amazing!

Hello @RenataDory323  Whiteboard is available for all the devices running Windows 10. You want to use the external device and software like writing board to work together with whiteboard, it may depend on the compatibility of external devices or software with the Windows 10 system. You can contact related Support when you have issue.

Hi ,

Do you mean that you want to draw diagrams using Whiteboard in MS Teams for business with a Wacom tablet?


I think it's Okya ,  I use a XP-PEN Deco 01 ( like wacom intuos ) digital drawing pad and can use it as a whiteboard software ( Microsoft whiteboard  )  input device .

I use a XP-Pen Deco 01 v 02 with the MS whiteboard app rather than the MS Teams whiteboard. The app has a little more functionality such as a ruler and an "ink to shape" function, both of which I find useful.

@David_Thew How do you get the XP Pen Deco wheel to work in Whiteboard? All of the tablet functions seem to work in whiteboard, except the wheel, but the wheel works in other programs. Any guidance would be very much appreciated. 

Does anyone know if a Huion Writing Tablet can work along with Microsoft Teams? @RenataDory323 

yes MS whiteboard and Teams whiteboard work with Huion writing pad. I recently bought one and it works out of the box, plug and play

@RenataDory323  I am using a HP EliteBook x360 which can be turned into a tablet together with the HP Pen. The Whiteboard can be used easily with the pen. Hope this helps.
