(Updated) Viva Topics in Teams

Microsoft Teams, Microsoft Viva, Microsoft 365 Experts

From Microsoft Corporation
Technical Bulletin MC391950 · Published Jun 13, 2022 · Last updated Jun 14, 2022

Message Summary

Updated June 14, 2022: We have updated the content below to show as intended. Thank you for your patience.

Viva Topics in Teams allows users to mention topics in their chat conversations so that others in the conversation can easily learn more about a topic by hovering over the topic name and viewing the topic card. This feature requires users to have a Viva Topics license.

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 72189

When this will happen:

  • Public Preview: We began rolling out in April and will continue rolling out through June and expect complete rollout by late June.
  • General Availability: We will continue rolling out through late June and expect complete rollout by late July.
  • GCC: We will continue rolling out in early July and expect complete rollout by late August.

How this will affect your organization:

If your organization has users with Viva Topics licenses, those users will be able to mention topics by typing the # character and choosing a topic from the topic picker. The topic picker will narrow selections based on what the user types. Once a topic is selected, users can post the message.

Recipients with Viva Topics licenses will see the selected topic’s name as highlighted text and will be able to hover over the highlight and see details of the topic in the topic card such as the alternate names for the topic, descriptions, associated people and resources.

What you need to do to prepare:

There is nothing you need to do to prepare for this change. The topics being displayed will be the same topics that are shown in Outlook Web and SharePoint.
