Viva Topics - how will words be linked

Occasional Contributor

Does a Topic only get linked in conversation when a # is used?

Hi Meg, not on the team doing the ama, but I have seen the topic cards show up in words on their own in SharePoint. I haven't figured out the consistency of it happening though.
In my experience, it seems to be pretty inconsistent. I am guessing it has something to do with how the AI is crawling the tenant. Maybe using the search crawl?

In SharePoint on news posts etc, you'll see highlights of Topics automatically there (just the first occurrence of that topic). authors can also use the # when authoring SharePoint pages to manually add a relevant highlight. You can also discover Topics in search, and we're bringing more and more entry points such as in Yammer very soon!
Thank you! I think automatic outlook and Teams links will be the most exciting for people.
