Microsoft Whiteboard Feature Reviews

7 reviewers had the following to say about Microsoft Whiteboard's features:

Aaron Cheang

Very limited whiteboard tool

2020-11-17

Not enough templates, poor functionality. It had so much potential as an integrated solution to the MS Office suite.

Pros

Whiteboard tool integrated into Microsoft suite of tools, shareable, online (browser based) whiteboard.

Cons

Limited feature set, templates and functionality that makes for a poor choice compared to other online whiteboards such as Miro, Mural

Superseded by OneNote

2020-10-07

I trialled this product and ultimately found it unsuitable for team collaboration. OneNote is a far better choice for that.

Pros

Having access to a tablet or touch-based device also enables you to capture your thoughts in finer detail

Cons

Seems overly focused on replicating a physical whiteboard into a digital space along with the lack of flexibility when it comes to entering in content. You're hamstrung if you attempt to use a desktop PC instead of a tablet.

Easy and free whiteboard cloud-based Software

2020-07-26

I use Microsoft Whiteboard to prepare simple slides to use in my tutorials.

Pros

On my board I can also load different types of documents, as PDF, Word or Power Point document, and photos.

Cons

I can't say it's a competitive product, but it is free, easy, with basic functions.

In a Remote World, It's an Inexpensive Resource

2020-08-18

Overall it was a free tool as part of our existing Microsoft Office 365 solution and has given remote teams an option to brainstorm and collaborate virtually.

Pros

A nice option for team brainstorming sessions while all remote. Collaborative capability with multiple users simultaneously.

Cons

As with most Microsoft products there's a learning curve - takes some time playing around with it to discover how to accomplish the task you had in mind. Still discovering new options and ways to make it more user-friendly within our team. Hard to see everything at once, need to zoom in and out and move around the page a lot if you have a lot of content on one board.

Delightful addition to remote meetings

2020-09-29

A delightful experience and great addition to a remote world of collaboration.

Pros

Truly brings the live whiteboard to the desktop without the dreaded chance someone will erase your great work.

Cons

Can be difficult to see the whole screen and make sense of it, but the user can easily manage that once they get the hang of it.
