Microsoft Viva Connections will soon allow users with editing permissions to personalize the Resources section with custom image icons. Rollout begins early July 2024, completing by mid-July, and requires no admin action. Users should consider which images to use for customization.

Coming soon to Microsoft Viva Connections: Users with editing permissions will be able to personalize Viva Connections by adding custom images as icons to links in the Resources section.

How this will affect your organization:

This feature is on by default and accessible to all Viva Connections users with editing permissions.

What you need to do to prepare:

There is no need for extensive preparation. Users with editing permissions should start considering which custom images they would like to use as icons for the links in the Resources section.

This rollout will happen automatically by the specified date with no admin action required before the rollout. You may want to notify your users with editing permissions about this change and update any relevant documentation as appropriate.
