Whiteboards are the fastest way to collaborate with your team and bridge the gap between ideation and getting work done. Changes to your Whiteboard save automatically.

Draw with a pen, add shapes and connectors, upload images, and embed almost anything, including ClickUp tasks and external content to take your whiteboarding to the next level.

For even more dynamic Whiteboards, use rich text formatting for shapes, notes, and text boxes!

Note: Whiteboard views are in Beta. We'd love to hear your feedback!

We'll cover

Collaborate in real time

Whiteboard is built for collaboration. Use Whiteboard to track your sprint planning, brainstorm marketing collateral concepts, or to help remote students work together.

Your team members' avatars display in the top-right corner. You can see who's watching your Whiteboard.

When team members click into and move around your Whiteboard, their mouse cursor appears on your screen. Any changes they make happen in real time.
