Viva Engage provides robust analytics to help you better understand the impact of your posts. Analytics provide metrics that let you monitor:

  • Your own engagement (through personal, Answers, and conversation analytics)

  • Engagement within the communities you visit (through community analytics).

Note: Except for conversation analytics, most dashboard analytics are only available to customers that have a Microsoft Viva Suite or Employee Communications and Communities license.

Open the Analytics dashboard

Analytics are visible to anyone who has created a post in Viva Engage and to leaders’ delegates.

Use one of these methods to open your Analytics dashboard:

  • From the Viva Engage navigation bar, select the analytics icon.

  • On your storyline or Answers page, in the Personal summary tile on the right, select See full personal analytics or the analytics icon below your cover photo.

    Your dashboard shows metrics for Personal analytics and Answers analytics that refresh every 24 hours.

    Tip: Hover over each metric to find a tool tip with more information about that metric.

Date range lets you see conversation trends starting from the date a post is created and beyond. Date ranges represent changes (deltas) for the selected period. You can filter on 7days, 28days, 90days, and 365days. For example, by selecting 7days, you can see the week-over-week change, whereas 90days shows quarter-over-quarter changes.


Use this filter to include data across communities and storyline, or only storyline.

Note: Audience related metrics are only visible to leaders who have been identified by an admin or corporate communicator and have assigned audiences. For details, see Identify leaders and manage audiences in Viva Engage.
