How to configure Viva Connections Preview

Viva Connections brings us a dedicated app in Teams with our SharePoint Intranet. Microsoft released an upgraded app that provides easier installation together with desktop/mobile experience. The first version, which was released in March 2021, showed a desktop-only experience. Now we can take a look at the mobile side of the Viva Connections.

Let’s take a look at what’s inside the upgraded app:

  • Microsoft app ready to use in Teams Store (no more PowerShell). We can also customize it in the Teams Admin Center.
  • The app works with mobiles (with Dashboard, Feed, and Resources, more about that later)
  • Dashboards that can be extended using SPFx or Adaptive Cards (YES!)

Keep in mind that it is still a Preview version. More features could be available when it’s released. Enable Preview in Teams!
