How to Use Stormboard on the Microsoft Surface Hub

Do you use Stormboard on your Microsoft Surface Hub? Here are some tips to help your next meeting be as efficient and effective as possible! 

Use "touch" to navigate your Storm (what we call your digital workspace). Pinch the screen to zoom in-and-out, and use one finger to move to a different area of the Storm. You can also use touch to move sticky notes to different areas of your Storm. 

Use the Microsoft Surface Hub Pen for sticky note creation. Tap the screen once with the pen to open a new sticky note. Use the built-in handwriting recognition to add your content. 

You can also use the pen to add line connectors to your sticky notes in order to track your workflow.
