This Week’s Episode:
This week Jay & Craig are joined by Susan Hanley, Microsoft MVP and well known advocate for the business in SharePoint and M365 solutions, to discuss Viva Connections.
Viva Connections is often thought of as “the intranet tool for Teams” and while it does enable you to bring your intranet into Microsoft Teams, in and of itself Viva Connections is not enough. In Susan’s words, “don’t think about Viva Connections, think about making a great intranet site” … this is the first step in making sure that your investment in Viva Connections pays off.
