Release notes for November 26, 2023
New and enhanced features
- Admin Features
- Support for group and individual settings for Whiteboard AI Companion
Support for group and individual level AI Companion controls has been implemented, enabling users to manage Whiteboard AI Companion settings at a more granular level. Previously, the Whiteboard AI Companion setting was restricted to the account level.
- In-meeting collaboration setting
A new control has been added to manage temporary sharing specifically within meetings, resulting in external users following the intended sharing restrictions set by the board owner's admin.
- User features
- Ability to transfer whiteboard ownership
Whiteboard users who are board owners have the ability to transfer ownership of their boards to collaborators within the same board. External ownership transfers are restricted to maintain security and integrity. When ownership is transferred, the previous owner's role shifts to that of a co-owner, allowing them to maintain involvement. Once the transfer is complete, the previous owner can choose to leave the board if they wish, ensuring a smooth transition of ownership.
- Ability to attach comments to specific object
Users can add comments directly to objects on the canvas, resulting in contextual information remaining intact even if the object is moved.
- Ability to live preview a color on an object
Users have the ability to preview a color in real-time by hovering over a new color in the color picker.
- Support for Recent section in templates dashboard
A new Recent section has been added to the templates dashboard, providing users with a convenient way to track and access the templates they have most recently utilized.
- Simplify opening a new whiteboard
Users selecting a new whiteboard will be immediately taken to the canvas, allowing them to start collaborating without the hassle of navigating through multiple dialogs and menus.
- Ability to paste whiteboard images and text into other apps
When users cut or copy anything that is not text from the whiteboard, the platform will treat it as an image, which can then be pasted into applications that support images. Similarly, when users cut or copy a single text object or comment from a whiteboard, the platform will treat it as text, which can then be pasted into applications that support text. To make this process easier, the Copy as image option has been added to the context menu.
- Support for active stylus
Users can enjoy a smoother and more intuitive drawing and erasing experience on the canvas with native support for active stylus devices such as Apple Pencil, Microsoft Surface Pen, Wacom Tablet, Samsung Pen, and more.
- Minor bug fixes
- Resolved an issue where users were receiving error 3000 when editing an individual meeting within a series of meetings from the Outlook Calendar
