New app: Microsoft Whiteboard

New app: Microsoft Whiteboard

Microsoft Whiteboard will be exiting preview and will be generally available in the next few months.

Microsoft Whiteboard is a freeform digital canvas where people, ideas, and content can come together for creative collaboration. The app is built for anyone who engages in creative, freeform thinking before getting to their final output. It's designed for teams that need to ideate, iterate, and work together both in person and remotely, and across multiple devices.

[How does this affect me?]
Microsoft Whiteboard contains an on/off switch, to give you some control with the rollout of this within your organization. The Preview switch is currently off-by-default, to give you a chance to explore the new capabilities. In the summer, this experience will be turned on-by-default, unless you explicitly turn it off.

In the next few months, the updated version of the Whiteboard Windows 10 app will be available for download from the Microsoft Store. Users in your organization will be able to download and log into the Windows 10 app, as long as Whiteboard is enabled for your organization.

This rollout is excluded from Office 365 subscriptions in Government, GCC, DoD, Office 365 Germany. If you are in one of these scenarios, you can ignore this message.

[What do I need to do to prepare for this change?]
This has administrative controls to enable and disable. This feature will be on by default, when this change takes effect. If you are not ready for your users to use Whiteboard, please disable by going to the Office 365 Admin center \ Settings \ Services & add-ins \ Whiteboard, and Turn Off Whiteboard for your entire organization.
