New Integration Management Settings for Global Admins in Viva Goals

Viva Goals supports integrations with Microsoft and third-party apps and platforms so that the OKR implementation process is as simple, effective, and seamless as possible. Effective immediately, global administrators can manage which integrations are available to Viva Goals organizations in your tenant. Additionally, Microsoft Planner and Excel integrations with Viva Goals will be available by default.

When this will happen


Viva Connections Toolbox displaying store apps

In the current Viva Connections environment: for users to acquire more Cards to their Dashboard, they need use the “Add an app” under Settings and Dashboard Edit Page, but it does not include Viva Connections Apps provided by Independent Software Vendors (ISVs). This is a major blocker of ISVs acquisition engine. We need to provide better entry points for users to discover and add ISV Cards.
