When this will happen:

Rollout will begin in late January and is expected to be complete by late February.

How this will affect your organization:

Your users would have the following experiences:

  • This will include a comments pane to see all comments on a given whiteboard.

Note: The commenting experience initially will not be supported for the Android and IOS apps. Microsoft eventually plans to bring this experience to mobile as well. 

What you need to do to prepare:

There is no action required at this time. Continue checking the Microsoft Whiteboard Blog and support pages on details about upcoming features and how best to use them.
