Rollout begins late May 2024, with completion expected by early June 2024. No action is required from admins before the rollout.

Coming soon to in Microsoft Viva Engage: Network admins and corporate communicators will be able to enable a new type of community specifically built to facilitate the rollout and adoption of Microsoft Copilot for Microsoft 365 in their organizations.

  • One-click community creation
  • Community setup checklist
  • Suggested content
  • Conversation starters
