We launched Whiteboard to provide a way for people to brainstorm ideas, plan projects, solve problemstrain colleagues, and to collaborate on projects whether in person or remote, across a variety of devices. In the classroom, we wanted to give teachers and students a way to create together and share their ideas without being confined to the dimensions of a physical whiteboard. After listening to our customers, we learned that many of you like to have a easier starting point to simplify how you use Whiteboard to collaborate and work.

 

Today we are excited to announce the preview of new templates in the Whiteboard PC and iOS apps that will allow people to ideate and collaborate more easily. We are starting with several templates that allow for workplace scenarios like brainstorming, project planning, KANBAN sprint planning, etc., as well as quick start in the classroom. More templates and capabilities will be made available continuously in the coming months.

The full list of templates available in preview are:  

  • Brainstorming  
  • Effective meeting 
  • KANBAN sprint planning 
  • SWOT analysis 
  • Problem solving 
  • Project planning 
  • Retrospective  
  • Project milestones 
  • KWL (Know, Wonder, Learn) for education

Whiteboard templates are now in public preview for Windows 10 and rolling out to iOS within a few days. To add templates, tap the insert button in the toolbar. 

 

If there are any additional templates that you would like to see included, or have any other feedback about Whiteboard, please reply to this post. Thanks for helping us improve Whiteboard, we have more exciting announcements coming soon.

Great to see templates added to the whiteboard as this makes this product even better than it already was.

Nice addition. Definitely makes Whiteboard a lot more useful.

This is really nice to have new templates added in whiteboard.

Love it! And intrigued by the 'regions' - hope that gets developed further outside of the given templates. Or build your own template and save board as template...

@Itai Almog, glad to see that even the template preview has come to the Whiteboard on the Surface Hubs!!!!

Whiteboard is amazing. 

 

HOWEVER as a teacher, we use cursive handwriting fonts and the lack of ability to change fonts when typing is the one thing that's stopping me from using this full time in my classroom. 

 

I so want to be able to use this but that's a massive issue for me. Please add this!

Hi,

This is really great, we have large teams and I have been asked to do NLP analysis over feedback. Is this something that you would consider? This is not a big data scenario so it should be within scope for E3 and E5 Office tiers. If not where is the data stored? (I'm azure tenant admin).

 

In short:

  • Topic modelling: Automatic topic assigment, so we can cluster ideas based on dominant terms.
  • Voting, you have already solved and that was a big one!
  • Where is the data stored? Can I retrieve feedback per user. I don't mind forcing users to type in the sticky notes to get a database with  USER, COMMENT, DATETIME, SESSION.

 

Hope I can get a reply or  we can further take this in a private chat.

This is great and all, but where the heck is the Android app that was promised like a year ago?

When will Whiteboard be available for Office 365 Government (GCC) subscriptions?

Microsoft

Would love to see the ability to create custom templates

I'm not sure if this is a bug, but all stacking capabilities seem to be broken - my existing stacks still can be expanded, but I can't make a new stack of sticky notes/images or add them to existing stacks. Are stacks being removed from Whiteboard?

And love the 'note grid' that has shown up as well - very handy if you don't want to use the full brainstorming template. Yay!

Microsoft has aligned with the Luma Institute around Innovating for People.  Are there plans to release templates that support the Luma Human Centered Design Methods?

Teachers would love the ability to create their own custom templates for lessons.

Templates is the only thing missing for us to use Whiteboard in our company. Feature Request: 1. Let the user store a Board as template in their own library 2. Share libraries accross users or within an organization Background: We are using another collaborative online whiteboard solution for agile software development. One of the main use cases are distributed retrospectives. We have a library of modules for each phase of the retrospective, similar to retromat.org and such. So if you want to do a retrospective you select the module for each phase and build an entire retrospective based on pre-defined templates. The team of moderators extend this library everytime they use a new module which doesn't have a template yet. The next person can reuse it afterwards. Saves tons of money and time. Inreases productivity. If templates have to be defined in some XML, JSON, HTML, .... whatever ... and "installed" to Whiteboard instead, then I am fine with that as well. Usability isn't of an issue here. Personal statement: And yes, a retrospective is more than "went well / went bad". I don't know why so many tools only support this very basic and un-fun style. Be more creative, people! ;)

hi, could you please add detailed instructions on how to add these templates? I tried but can`t find them, unless my organization has not yet rolled them out...

Where is the Android app? Adding more features does not help when it's limited to iOS and Windows devices!

Thats a good addition to whiteboard. But i tend to use Planner in Teams, it helps manage work much better. 

 

Thanks
