Viva Engage


Effective internal communication fosters engagement and collaboration in today’s dynamic work environments. That’s why we’re excited to introduce Viva Engage — a Premium app that enhances your communication efforts within your organization.

Viva Engage allows you to display the feed from your Viva Engage communities, including all types of posts: discussions, polls, praises, and questions. Enhance your communication strategy with dynamic content, ensuring your team stays informed, engaged, and connected.

Display posts in Viva Engage

In Viva Engage, you can tailor your display content by selecting the specific Community Feed and the type of post you want to showcase. We support all post types, including discussions, questions, polls, and praises, ensuring a dynamic and engaging digital signage experience.

Each post in the Viva Engage app includes a QR code, enabling viewers to scan and directly access the original post. This feature allows users to view all attachments and interact with content through replies and reactions, enhancing interaction and keeping your team engaged.

We optimize the display specifically for digital signage for posts without images, GIFs, or videos. Here’s a quick guide on how these text-only posts will appear:

These visuals will be shown first when your posts include an image or GIF. Here’s what you need to know:

Display Priority:

The first image or GIF attached to your post is displayed prominently on the left, replacing our post graphics.

Adding Media:

You can upload images or GIFs directly from your PC to enhance your posts. Only media uploaded directly to Viva Engage will be supported.

Note on Attachments:

We cannot display images or GIFs attached from other Microsoft cloud locations like SharePoint.
