Deploy Microsoft Whiteboard on Windows 10 devices

Whiteboard can be deployed on devices that run Windows 10 or later using Microsoft Intune or Microsoft Configuration Manager (formerly System Center Configuration Manager). Whiteboard isn't supported on Windows Server.

In order to deploy Whiteboard, you must first ensure that Whiteboard is enabled for your organization. For more information, see Manage access to Whiteboard.

  • Microsoft Intune using an online license mode – This process allows you to specify groups of users who will receive access to the Whiteboard app.

  • Microsoft Configuration Manager using manual offline installation and updates – This process allows you to install Whiteboard and then manually update it every 2–4 weeks.


We recommend using Microsoft Intune. Using Microsoft Configuration Manager requires IT to continuously repackage and install updates to ensure users are running an up-to-date version.
