The public preview of Copilot in Viva Engage is now available!


If you are an individual team member, corporate communicator, or organizational leader, Copilot can help you engage with others at work in ways that create value for you and your organization. This preview is available to all users with a premium Viva Engage license. *

 

Communicating your accomplishments, objectives, discoveries, questions, interests, and updates can help you achieve your goals, shape culture, and drive action. That’s what Viva Engage is all about, and now Copilot helps you get the most out of Viva Engage by suggesting where to engage and collaborating with you on writing your communications.

Copilot helps you discover opportunities to engage in your organization


Copilot makes personalized suggestions about where to engage based on your activity and what is trending in your organization’s network. These suggestions, or Conversation Starters, bring together information from across Viva Engage to help you:


• Have an active voice in the Viva Engage communities that matter to you. With each community suggestion, Copilot provides a summary of the community’s purpose and recent trending posts to inspire how you might like to join the conversation.
• Participate in Viva Engage campaigns. Copilot suggests campaigns sponsored by your leaders and aligned with your interests, summarizing the campaign’s purpose and recent posts to help you contribute to these shared initiatives.
• Communicate on Storyline in ways that improve culture and productivity for yourself and others. Viva Engage has partnered with experts in employee experience to create a library of research-backed post suggestions that encourage best practices like recognizing one’s teammates, sharing your knowledge or learning goals, and communicating your plans for the future.

Copilot helps you write communications that connect


Once you have an idea of what you’d like to post about on Viva Engage, you can collaborate with Copilot to craft your post –tapping into the power and flexibility of Large Language Models (LLMs) with Microsoft Responsible AI protections.


Whether you’re starting from scratch or working from a draft, Copilot in Viva Engage can help you write, edit, get feedback on your post, and more. For users who are new to AI collaboration, suggested prompts provide examples of how to get the ball rolling with Copilot. These suggestions guide you to collaborate with Copilot in ways that are particularly useful to the task at hand –writing a post that is engaging and expresses what you've got to say.


Examples of Copilot’s suggested prompts:


• Brainstorm ideas for a post about...
• Give me a post template about...
• Rewrite my draft to be more concise.
• Make my draft more engaging.
• Read my draft and predict questions readers might have.
• Suggest how to increase authenticity.
• And more, including your own custom prompts!


You can go beyond these suggestions and get creative with how you ask Copilot for assistance, sending your own unique prompts. For example, if you need a key piece of information to be memorable and you’d like to have a little fun, you might ask Copilot to turn your writing into a poem. As you collaborate, Copilot will provide proactive coaching to help you maintain the authenticity of your communication and express your unique personality, perspective, knowledge, and insight.

You might create a Viva Engage post to share your discoveries of effective ways to work with Copilot. If you are a corporate communicator on Viva Engage, you might like to start a Viva Engage campaign so team members can add a hashtag to these posts, enabling people across the organization to explore and learn best practices together.
