Hi, I'm Simon, I work with a variety of 365 tech, particularly SharePoint. Today I'm mostly interested in what Viva can do for a small company with a lot of external collaborators, and in Viva Learning for a report I'm working on for a member organisation.
Hi, all, I am the VP of Marketing and Business Development at Pillars Community Health, a nonprofit in the Chicago suburbs. We are in the process of launching a new employee Intranet in Sharepoint, embedding in TEAMS using Viva Connect.
I just turned topics on and it is creating the suggested Topics. I have over 3000 so far.



I am trying to create but none of the topics are appeared. Do you guide me the steps to create the suggested topics.

Oh, I just turned it on and they showed up. I do not know how it worked.
