Hi. First post...be gentle...
I'd really like to know if there is a roadmap for introducing the Whiteboard functionality in Teams calls with external participants. At the moment when we start a Whiteboard session, it just states "For now only members of this org can participate. Soon, you'll be able to too!".
So...when is soon?

@markc2018 Hello, I am not aware of when this will happen either, but there's a UserVoice for it https://whiteboard.uservoice.com/forums/915919-whiteboard-for-windows-10/suggestions/35320354-allow-...
You can also follow the roadmap for Whiteboard (and all other apps) to see when/if new features are coming https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-365/roadmap?filters=

The roadmap says December 2020 !
"..Any guests, external or anonymous users in a Teams meeting can view and collaborate on the whiteboard during the meeting. They will not have continued access to the whiteboard after the meeting ends..."

Do we know if there will be any administrator ability to enable/disable this feature in meetings?

@markc2018 Follwing the new modification on the roadmap, the developpers seem to have postponed it to September 2021 (30/3/21). This is indeed a major functionality because at least 50% of the meetings include external users. So not being able to share a whiteboard with them is just making whiteboard useless. It's a shame that they are not speeding up as this feature as such (pasting images, post-it ...) is not available on Zoom and very helpfull for training. I am wondering if there is a project manager looking for the global impact of Whiteboard and Teams.

@Alexander Auras Apart from the really disappointing news of the delay in sharing with external contributors in MS Teams is the extremely annoying inability to properly export the Whiteboards to a third party whiteboard vendor! All the hard work needs to be input all over again! Come on Microsoft - get your act together!
