Microsoft Viva Glint: Use Microsoft 365 admin center to assign your organization’s Viva Glint admins

An organization’s Global Admin is set by default as the Microsoft Viva Glint Admin, but they likely are not the ones using the platform. They need the ability to assign the correct person as their organization’s Viva Glint Admin and remove themselves.

Viva Glint (Service) administrators can now be assigned through the Microsoft 365 Admin Center (MAC) in addition to being able to setup within the Viva Glint product. There will not be changes to existing user roles.

When this will happen:

Standard Release: We will begin rolling out mid-February 2024 and expect to complete by late February 2024.

How this will affect your organization:

From the Microsoft Viva suite page, admins can navigate to an individual app page and follow a guided dashboard that helps them set up and configure first steps. Upon completing the steps in the guided dashboard, Global Tenant Admins can now prepare to let the Viva Glint Admin take over management of the app. Global Tenant Admins can search, select, and confirm Viva Glint Admins by searching for these employees in their company’s Active Directory.
