What is Whiteboard?


The GitMind whiteboard offers an unrestricted canvas, allowing us to freely add shapes, input text, create relationship lines, and insert images. With no size limitations, this canvas facilitates the capture of inspiration, organization of academic knowledge, and management of projects. It’s now accessible on web and desktop platforms, while mobile support is limited to viewing whiteboard files.
