How to troubleshoot disabled or missing Zoom Whiteboard button
Ensure that the Whiteboard feature is enabled for your account
Make sure the Whiteboard feature has not been disabled by your organization admin. If it is disabled, contact your admin and request to enable it.
Verify if you have permission to access the Whiteboard
Ensure that you have the necessary permissions to access the Whiteboard feature. If you do not have the required privileges, contact your account administrator to grant you the necessary permissions.
Check the meeting settings
Even if the whiteboard feature is enabled, the meeting host has the option to prevent the use of whiteboards during a meeting. Check the meeting settings and see if the host has disabled Whiteboard for meeting participants.
