How to enable your Microsoft Viva Connections Dashboard

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.

To do this you need to set up on your tenant a SharePoint Home Site and you can do that using the SharePoint admin centre, using SharePoint Online Management Shell or PnP PowerShell.

We will use the PnP PowerShell to enable this Home Site:

Connect-PnPOnline -Url -UseWebLogin
Set-PnPHomeSite -HomeSiteUrl

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.

  1. On the site click on Settings
  2. Select the option Set Up Viva Connections
  3. 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.
