Microsoft Feed helps you discover and learn about people and interests relevant at work. The feed shows you a mix of content and activity from across Microsoft 365 to help you stay connected to your colleagues and informed about what's happening around you.

You might, for example, see updates to documents you’re working on with others, links shared with you in Teams chats, suggested tasks to follow up, highlights about colleagues, and much more.

Microsoft Feed is available from different places, including:

  • The Microsoft 365 app ( Select Feed from the toolbar on the left.

  • Microsoft Edge, on the Work feed tab.

  • Outlook Mobile

The feed may look different depending on which app you're in. Here's an example of the feed in the Microsoft 365 app:

Microsoft Feed is personal and personalized

Microsoft Feed is personalized to you. What you see in your feed is different from what your colleagues see in theirs. 

You'll only see documents or other content directly shared with you or that you have access to. For example, they could be documents that are stored in a shared folder in OneDrive, on a SharePoint site that you have access to, or a link that someone sent you in an email or Teams chat.

Documents are not stored in the feed. If you want to change permissions on any of your documents, you can do this from where the documents are stored, such as OneDrive or SharePoint. The feed always follows document permissions and won't display your documents to people who don't have access to them.

When you or others share a document as an attachment in an email or a Teams chat, only people in the email conversation or the Teams chat will see that document in their feed.

How does Microsoft Feed know what's relevant?

What you see in your feed is based on signals that you and your colleagues send when you work in Microsoft 365. For example, when you and a colleague attend the same meetings or update the same document, it's a signal that you're likely to be working together. Other signals are who you follow, who you communicate with through email or in Teams, who your manager is, and who has the same manager as you.

As you and your colleagues work together in Microsoft 365, the feed will show new and updated information related to your work and your interests.

Where does the information in Microsoft Feed come from?

What you see in your feed is based on signals that you and your colleagues send when you work in Microsoft 365. Here are some examples of content you might see.

  • Documents and files from OneDrive or SharePoint
    When someone you work with or who’s relevant to you update documents or files that are stored in OneDrive or SharePoint, these documents may appear in your feed if you have access to them or if they've been shared with you or a group you’re a member of.

  • Automatic replies from Outlook
    When you or others set an auto-reply in Outlook, the information may appear in the feed.

  • Insights about upcoming and past meetings from Outlook/Teams
    Information about upcoming meetings or events from your calendar may appear in the feed, often with suggestions for documents that may be relevant for that meeting. You might also see recaps of past meetings you were invited to, with AI-generated insights such as tasks, notes, name mentions, speakers and more, based on the transcript of the meeting. AI-generated content may be incorrect. On your colleagues' profile cards, you may see meetings that you're both invited to.

  • Status messages from Teams
    When you or others set a status message in Teams, the information may appear in the feed.

  • Links shared in Teams chats or email
    When someone shares a link in a Teams chat or an email conversation you’re part of, the link may show up in the feed.

  • Suggested tasks 
    When you get requests from your colleagues by email or Teams, make commitments, or make a request to your colleagues, this may show up in your feed as a suggested task.

  • People highlights from LinkedIn
    If your organization has enabled LinkedIn information in apps and services and you have connected your work or school account with your LinkedIn account, the following LinkedIn information may show up in the feed:

    • Birthday

    • Position change

    • Work anniversary

    Note: LinkedIn information in Microsoft 365 apps is subject to LinkedIn visibility settings. Learn more about LinkedIn in Microsoft apps.

    You can prevent LinkedIn information from appearing in Microsoft apps such as feed by:

    Note: If your LinkedIn settings allow it, your public profile will still be visible in Microsoft apps after you disconnect your accounts. You can limit the visibility of your public profile information as it appears in other people's profile card views.
