Most businesses heavily rely on the collaborative efforts of their employees, teams, and departments to meet requirements and find solutions.

However, collaborations are not easy to achieve, especially when people are working from home during the ongoing pandemic or from different office locations.

Communications are not easy because employees are not working face-to-face in the same offices, making collaborations even more difficult.

However, as for most problems, Microsoft has an easy solution in their Microsoft 365 suite of applications - Whiteboard.

Whiteboard Makes Collaboration Simple

Whiteboard is an application from Microsoft that offers a shared visual workspace for employees and teams to collaborate in real time from anywhere. Whether they are at home, in the office, or on the go, Whiteboard offers a digital canvas for effective collaborations.

Brainstorming is an important part of any collaboration effort and Whiteboard, inside Microsoft 365, is the simple, no-nonsense way for employees and teams to do it.

They can share their ideas, brainstorm, come up with solutions, and plan their efforts together on a digital canvas that works in real time. All they need is to share the link of the Whiteboard with as many people as they like, and collaboration becomes a breeze.

All you have to do is share the Whiteboard link with as many collaborators as you like, and everyone can benefit from the real time collaboration on Whiteboard.

Whiteboard is at its best when used with a stylus, as it automatically recognizes shapes and tables and converts them into a great digital design. This makes it easy for anyone to use because their shapes, tables, and ideas are noted down in a neat and clean, legible manner.

Just like a traditional whiteboard, anything can be added, edited, or erased by the users. However, unlike a traditional whiteboard, you can undo and redo things as well. This allows for easy recovery from mistakes and returning to previously dismissed ideas.

You and your colleagues can also add sticky notes, drawings, and copied text or images from the Internet. The real time collaborative possibilities of Whiteboard are endless and incredible, making it yet another excellent application from Microsoft.

Conclusion

While there are lots of whiteboard apps available in the market, very few can integrate with other Microsoft apps like Whiteboard can.

Since it is a part of the Microsoft 365 suite of applications, integrations and cross-app working become much simpler, especially if your business uses Microsoft 365 applications regularly.

Whiteboard is an incredibly powerful tool for brainstorming, planning, and sharing ideas with as many people as you like, in real time, just by sharing a link. Working in real time makes collaborations easy, simple, and effective.

The productivity and efforts of your employees, teams, and departments will have no bounds thanks to Whiteboard and Microsoft 365. It is an especially useful tool during these tough times when most people are working from home.
