My Teams and Viva Blog


The purpose of this Blog is to share information and content to try and help others. All my posts are based upon my personal efforts and should be accurate at time of publication. However, as Microsoft Teams and Viva are rapidly developing services, be sure to keep up to date with the corporate blogs and documentation. I’ll also try to avoid re-hashing marketing announcements as there are plenty of other sources for these. I hope you find some of my posts useful.
