The scope of workplace collaboration tools available to teams today stretches far beyond anything employees might have imagined two and a half years ago. When work-from-home orders swept the globe in early 2020, most organizations were focused on ensuring they had viable video and chat platforms in place. Now, as a significant proportion of employees have decided to work outside of the office for at least part of the work week, tools that do more than just support workers’ basic communication needs are becoming more sought after.
One product that has seen an explosion in growth this year has been the digital whiteboard. Also known as visual collaboration platforms or shared canvas apps, these tools let hybrid teams collaborate visually via an online interface.
