Microsoft Viva Engage

Microsoft Viva Engage to connect the work community

Microsoft Viva Engage is an extension application of the Microsoft Viva product family that brings employees together.

Until now, Viva apps have supported working at the individual and team level, but with Viva Engage, improving the employee experience expands to include the entire organization’s community.

The add-on for Viva apps allows employees to connect with managers and colleagues on the organization’s own social media platform.

Bring the employees of the entire organization together:

  • Involve employees in creating meaningful relationships and communities across organizational boundaries
  • Build trust among the work community
  • Strengthen the sense of belonging and community

Viva Engage, running on the Yammer platform, enables:

  • Organizing virtual events
  • Pinning noteworthy conversations on top
  • Creating announcement posts on current topics
  • Sharing employees’ own experiences in the form of updates and stories
  • Following other employees’ updates and stories
  • Finding answers to questions
  • Ideating and solving problems openly together

The news and updates of the user’s Viva Connections contacts are displayed in Viva Engage, and new persons can be followed, for example, from employees suggested by the application.

In the feed of the Storylines tab, you can like and comment on other people’s content in addition to conversations. With the Stories function, users can publish short videos or photo posts.

Activities such as virtual events, newsletters, and updates to discussions liked and commented on by the employee are notified in Teams, Outlook, and Viva Connections.

Viva Engage has replaced the Communities application used in Teams. However, Viva Engage works side-by-side with Yammer. When a user updates content with Viva Engage, it appears in Yammer, and vice versa. Regardless of the application used, information, people and content reach each other through the organization.

Customers with a Microsoft 365 license can continue using Yammer. Customers using the Microsoft Viva license, on the other hand, get Viva Engage, which works as part of Teams.
