Using templates

Microsoft Whiteboard works like a giant flipchart. We usually start with a blank canvas, adding virtual "Post-it" notes and drawings, pasting images, and so on. In addition to the blank canvas, Microsoft Whiteboard includes templates to help you with project planning, documenting meeting minutes, making kanban boards, and so on.

To access templates, click on the + sign on the functions bar (see Figure 7.4), then after that, select the type of template you are looking for and you will see numerous templates that can be easily added to the screen. Templates provide guidance and orientation according to different methodologies and best practices. All templates are editable, which means you and your team can tweak them as needed. The most used template is the kanban board (see Figure 7.5):
