As a community admin, you can create campaigns for your community members that focus on projects, interests, and events specific to your community.

Viva Engage offers two kinds of campaigns. Official campaigns are available to everyone in the organization and must be created by a Microsoft 365 Global admin, Engage admin, or corporate communicator. Community campaigns are created by community admins exclusively for their community members.

Community members can post to community campaigns by using the campaign hashtag in the publisher window on either the community page or the campaign page.

    ​​​​​Choose a unique hashtag that's not in current use by another campaign.

  3. Your campaign is in a draft state and is saved to the community campaign hub. Until you publish your campaign, you can continue to refine it: add a cover photo, a goal, and pin links. Only you can see it until you publish it.  

Open draft and published campaigns   

All community campaigns are saved to the community's campaign hub. Community members can only access published, active campaigns here. Whereas community admins can find published campaigns and unpublished drafts still in progress. Unpublished, or draft, campaigns are only visible to the community admin that created the campaign. 

  1. Go to a community page. Published campaigns appear in the right rail.

  2. Below the published campaigns, select View all campaigns.
