Zoom Whiteboards can be created and shared (in-meeting or out-of meetings). Whiteboard collaborators have access to a wide variety of controls and sharing options to help make working together easier. Users can also manage whiteboards they have created, or that have been shared with them, from the Zoom app and the Zoom dashboard portal.
