Sellers and their managers need an easy way to review the conversations they've had with their customers and quickly find relevant talking points, keywords, and insights.

The meeting summary page provides a high-level view of how the conversation with a customer went, and includes follow-up action items and relevant keywords, a timeline, a transcript of the call, and more.

View the meeting summary

When the meeting summary is ready, you’ll receive a message from the Viva Sales bot in your personal chat. The message includes meeting details such as the title, date, time, and attendees, and a link to the summary. You can use the link in the message to view the summary, or go to the Viva Sales tab in the meeting.

  • Go to the Viva Sales bot in your chat list and select Open summary.
