"I hadn't realised how many things Viva can do for me and the team"

Fraser Beadle COO

Microsoft Viva isn't just a tool to remind staff about actions they mentioned in emails. Or tell them to take a break once in a while. It can do that, but when I went to the Viva Explorers meetup in the UK, it opened my eyes to a whole load more things if can help with. 

  • Viva Connections : Seems to create links between documents, policies and people. So we can find what they need way more easily and collaborate on content.
  • Viva Insights: Shows patterns and trends about how we work. MOST important for me and the team though, it's got inbuild guardrails against invading our privacy.
  • Viva Topics: Seemed really cool (but still emerging as a tool). Mapping links between documents and artefacts we store. Using not just titles, but keywords and AI to join the dots for me. A big benefit looks to be unearthing legacy content and linking to topics I need right now. Pretty cool really.
