Share the existing Whiteboard in Teams meeting
I would like to share the existing Whiteboard in Teams meeting.

So according to an old video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cKp0QRORQfQ&t=27s), this was possible via breakout rooms, where you could add the whiteboard from a breakout room to the main room directly, but it seems all the functionality from the video doesn't seem to resemble Teams in its current state.
However, there seems to be a workaround. It seems any whiteboards you create can be accessed at https://app.whiteboard.microsoft.com/. From there you can create a link to share the whiteboard and paste that into chat. Folks can then access and edit that whiteboard, but it opens outside the Teams app. This is fine by me, as I can edit my whiteboard in one window, while still accessing my Teams meeting and other functionality in the Teams app/browser window.
It just seems there was a lot more Teams functionality in the aforementioned video, not sure why it changed.
please, please please allow this, let's you do a lot of pre-work etc
I agree. Should be an option during a Teams meeting for selecting the specific whiteboard to share. Right now, you can only share the default whiteboard created with the meeting request, but sometimes you need to share other whiteboard, prepared previously on the desktop app or maybe a whiteboard created on a previous meeting.

If i create a whiteboard in the app, I should be able to add it as a tab to the App without creating a NEW whiteboard as a tab.
How can I keep students from erasing whiteboard while I am sharing?
