Message Summary

Updated February 17, 2021: We have updated the links in this post to ensure they are visible. Thank you for your patience.

The Insights app in Teams provides personalized insights to improve productivity and wellbeing and data-driven recommendations to help you build better work habits.

Key Points:

  • Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID: 68747
  • Timeline: Available starting early February 2021 and completing rollout by end of April
  • Requirement: Users with provisioned exchange mailbox can access features within Insights teams app.
  • Roll-Out:
    • As shared on the previous post (MC230176), on February 04, 2021, Insights app with “Stay Connected” and “Protect Time” tab will be available as a Teams Personal app in the Teams app store but will not be directly installed for your users.
    • Starting March 08, 2021, unless disabled by admin, Insights Teams app will be pre-installed for users and available directly in the Teams left navigation app bar under “…”(More apps)
  • Admin Control: via the Teams admin center

How this affects your organization:

Once the Insights app is pre-installed, it will be available for users to discover the app directly from Teams left navigation app bar under the “…” (More apps), unless disabled by admins.

Users will be able to leverage:

  • The “Stay Connected” tab which makes it seamless to pin an important collaborator to see communications from emails, chats and shared documents that might require follow up in one place, and schedule regular 1:1s to maintain strong relationships.
  • The “Protect Time” tab which makes it seamless to schedule time in the week before it fills up with meetings for focused, uninterrupted work.

Note: The features in the “Stay Connected” and “Protect Time” page in the Insights app are completely personal and private; no administrator or manager can see another individual’s data. All data is stored inside the user’s mailbox and the app is subject to the same GDPR compliance terms as Office 365. Learn more about Insights app in Teams and how Microsoft protects your privacy.
