  • Annotations are enabled for everyone by default.

    You can disable it when you are in the meeting
    -> Click the "Join Information and Meeting Options" link at the top
    -> Then Click "Meeting Options"
    -> Change the "Annotate Presentations" to "Presenter Only" or "None" (Everyone is the default option)

  • Or you can also disable Annotations in the Conferencing Policies via Powershell or the Lync Control Panel

  • Hi,

    I think you intend is that the presenter has the permission to modify the whiteboard while the others not.

    The whiteboard is either on or off when setting annotations via the conferencing policy.

    So it is not possible to achieve your goal.

  • When you create the meeting invitation in Outlook, if you make your internal users as attendees only. Then i think that they can not edit the whiteboard.

    (the default is that the users from the same org gets presenting privileges )
