Microsoft Viva Connection enables the users to have quick access to data and information using Microsoft Teams and with that increase the communication across your company. As you can imagine Teams relies on SharePoint to provide such experience and in order to activate this functionality you need to set up a couple of settings in SharePoint.
We will use the PnP PowerShell to enable this Home Site:
Connect-PnPOnline -Url https://contoso-admin.sharepoint.com -UseWebLogin
Set-PnPHomeSite -HomeSiteUrl https://contoso.sharepoint.com/sites/homeSite
NOTE: It may take up to 10 minutes for the new home site URL to take effect.
Once you run the PnP PowerShell command above or follow the instruction provided on one of the URL’s above, navigate to the selected SharePoint Homesite, keep in mind that you need to be an admin of the site.
- On the site click on Settings
- Select the option Set Up Viva Connections
- Click on the option Create DashBoard
When you click that option you gonna be redirected to a SharePoint page where you can configure your Viva Connections Dashboard. You can use it on your SharePoint Home page by using the Dashboard for Viva Connections web part.
