Add a Viva Engage page to a Teams channel

Do you need to collaborate on an Engage post or topic while you’re working in Microsoft Teams? Simplify your workflow by adding a tab for an Engage community in Microsoft Teams. Your team members can participate in the Engage conversation, right from Microsoft Teams, or discuss an Engage conversation in Teams before posting a reply to the wider Engage community.

When a Teams member goes to the Viva Engage tab, they are authenticated again by Engage, so that they only see Engage content that they have access to.

Here's what you need to be able to add this tab:

  • A subscription to Engage Enterprise.

  • Team members must be enabled to add tabs. If you can't add a tab, talk to your team owner.

Note: The Viva Engage tab is not automatically refreshed. In order to see new conversations or replies, reload the tab.

Add a Viva Engage tab to a Microsoft Teams channel

  1. In the Teams channel, select + on the tab bar.

  2. Select the Communities tab.

  3. In the Content Type section of the Communities dialog box, select one of the following:

    • Engage group: all messages visible to the user in the selected community.

    • Engage topic: all messages visible to the user with the selected topic hashtag, for example #NewEmployee.

  4. In the Search box, type the community name or topic you want to include, and then select the community or topic from the list that appears.

  5. To automatically have a Teams message sent that lets your team know that you've added the Viva Engage tab, make sure the Post to the channel about this tab checkbox is selected. Otherwise, clear it.

  6. Select Save. The new Viva Engage tab shows up in the tab bar for all team members.

Note: You can select only one Engage community or topic per tab. To add tabs for more Engage communities, repeat this procedure.

Tip: To change or rename the Engage community that is displayed, or to remove the tab, select the down arrow next to the tab name.
