Benefits and value

Viva Connections is designed to meet people where they usually get their work done—in Microsoft Teams. Viva Connections creates an opportunity to push specific content and display popular resources by combining the power of your SharePoint intranet with Microsoft Teams and other Microsoft 365 apps like Yammer and Stream. Viva Connections offers added functionality through three primary components: the Dashboard, the Feed, and Resources.

  • The Viva Connections Dashboard brings together the tools your employees need, enabling quick and easy access whether they are in the office or in the field. The Dashboard uses dynamic cards that employees can interact with to do things like complete simple tasks or review critical data.
  • The Viva Connections Feed delivers updates to the right people at the right time with powerful targeting and scheduling capabilities. It is tightly integrated with Yammer, SharePoint news, and Stream to display a personalized feed, based on post-level targeting of the groups that employees belong to. It supports both centralized corporate communication scenarios and democratized news scenarios.
  • The Viva Connections Resources experience enables finding a way across platforms. It uses navigation elements from the SharePoint app bar, which can be audience targeted.
