Viva Topics workflow and multiple topic page copies

Senior Member

I've configured and started using Viva Topics in my development SharePoint deployment. With little content there, I've manually created the topics.


I've checked the topic life-cycle documentation and related video, and my understanding of the topic life-cycle is Suggested Topics ---> Confirmed --> (Edited confirmed Topics go to --> Published.   Plus if you edit a suggested Topic it goes straight to Published.   


The issue I'm having, however, is when I select a confirmed topic and select Review and Publish - then select Edit - make a change and Publish  (following the video and the steps in the docs directly) instead of moving the topic to published in the life-cycle it informs me the page is already published and creates a duplicate?


Everything seems to work fine (although it's very slow finding new manually created topics). Anyone else experience this issue?

Yes I've experienced this - I also have at least one Topic that has been published but is not appearing under the Published header
