Welcome to our late January 2024 edition of our Viva Glint newsletter. Our communications are full of information that help you get the most from your Viva Glint programs. You can always access the current edition and past editions of the monthly Viva Glint news update on our blog page.


Our next features release date


Viva Glint’s next features release is scheduled for February 10, 2024. Your dashboard will provide date and timing details two or three days before the release.


In your Viva Glint programs


Viva Glint admins can consent to use of external benchmarks, allowing Microsoft to use their survey data to refresh external benchmark suites. Consent is required to use external benchmarks in the platform. Once consent is given, a Viva Glint admin can select one or more external benchmarks for managers to use when viewing reports. Learn more about opting into using external benchmarks.


Need to delete a Distribution List? You can! Admins can delete a list from the Distribution Lists page, accessible from their admin dashboard. Names of any program using that list will display and you’ll need to remove the list from the target audience of those programs before the list can be deleted. Distribution List deletions are permanent, but the data of the members in the list is not deleted. Read about Distribution Lists.


Admins can also delete custom content resources that have been added to their Action Plans. As with Distribution Lists, a window displays any dependencies on the content, advising that any resource linked to this custom resource will have a broken link and also that all actions plans containing this resource will be deleted. Read about customizing action plans.
