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 (office.com). Select Feed from the toolbar at the left.
Microsoft Edge, on the Microsoft 365 page.
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 will only see documents or other content directly shared with you or that you have access to in any case. This can be documents that are stored in a shared folder in OneDrive or on a SharePoint site that you have access to, or a link that someone sent you in an email conversation or a 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 respects the permissions that are set on documents, and will not show your documents to people who don't have access to them.
When you or others share a document as an attachment in email, or through 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.
Some examples of how you might use Microsoft Feed
Discover relevant updates and progress related to important collaborations
See updates to documents you’re working on with others, or any files you have access to, including links people you work with have shared with you in email or in Teams chats.
Discover and learn new insights about your colleagues and people in your network
Keep up with your colleagues’ birthdays and work anniversaries, or who has a new role worth celebrating. Learn about new colleagues in your team or people you're meeting with for the first time. Quickly see who’s away or has updated their Teams status.
Prepare for meetings or learn what happened in meetings you couldn’t attend
Prepare for important meetings or catch up with what happened in a meeting you couldn’t attend. See important meetings coming up shortly, read up on relevant content before the meeting, and join the meeting directly from the feed.
Discover useful content related to your company or topics you're interested in
Stay up to date on what's happening in your company with company news, and find relevant content related to your interests.
Find your way around
Discover what's new in the main feed
The main feed (All) shows a mix of content relevant to you.
Click an item or select the Title to open it.
For items shared in Outlook or Teams, hover over the app name to see the title of the email or chat. You can select the app name to open the email or chat.
To save an item for later, select the star on an item to add it to your Favorites.
Some item types let you react, comment, or share from the feed. Select the relevant icon on the item.
To remove an item from the feed, select More options (…) on an item and then select Remove from feed.
View information about a colleague and their activity
You can hover over a person’s name or photo on an item to see their profile card and their contact information.
To find more information and activity related to a colleague:
Click a name or photo in the main feed, or
In the Connect pane, click a name, or use the search box to find other colleagues.
The larger profile card in feed shows a person’s profile information at the top, and relevant information, activity and content that’s shared with you further down. Learn more about profile cards.
Note: You will only see documents or other content directly shared with you or that you have access to in any case. This can be documents that are stored in a shared folder in OneDrive or on a SharePoint site that you have access to, or a link that someone sent you in an email conversation or a Teams chat. You can only see upcoming meeting for others if you are also invited to the same meeting.
To go back to the main feed, select All from the left menu.
Note: If you're using the feed from the Microsoft 365 page in Edge, use the back arrow on top of the larger profile card or select Microsoft Feed from the left menu to return to the main feed.
Get back to your own documents and activity
Select My activity below your photo/name in the upper right corner to go to your own feed page. Use this page to get back to your own documents and activity, such as files you’ve updated recently, upcoming meetings, and meeting recordings of meetings you were invited to. You can also update your own profile from here.
Note: If you're using the feed from the Microsoft 365 page in Edge, you can get back to your own content under My content in the left menu instead.
Influence what and who you see by following people
Note: Following is only available for the feed in the Microsoft 365 app (Office.com), and only if you have a Yammer license. Following in the feed is aligned with following in Yammer. Who you follow in Yammer will be reflected in your feed, and the other way around.
You can choose to follow people you're interested in to see more from them. You’ll always only see content you have access to. You can follow colleagues from the Connect pane, or from someone's profile card in the feed.
To see who you follow and who follows you, select My network from the left menu.
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 the documents, or they have been shared with you or a group you’re member of.
Automatic replies from Outlook
When you or others set an auto-reply in Outlook, the information may appear in the feed.
Upcoming meetings and meeting recordings 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 both are 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.
When you get requests from your colleagues in email or in Teams, make commitments, or make a request to your colleagues, this can 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 can show up in the feed:
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:
Disconnecting your LinkedIn and Microsoft accounts and managing your LinkedIn data
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. Learn more about your off-LinkedIn profile visibility and how to adjust these settings.
