Add a template to your whiteboard

While editing a whiteboard, select the Template icon on your toolbar. From here, you can use the search bar at the top to find a specific template or browse templates by category on the left. Click a template to see its description. Click Use template to add the template to your whiteboard.

Since a whiteboard provides infinite space, you can add multiple templates to a single whiteboard. We recommend adding frames to your whiteboard and then adding the templates within those frames.
