Unsubscribe from the Daily Briefing Email
The Microsoft Viva Daily Briefing is a tool that helps users manage their work. It is similar to Windows 10’s Cortana feature, providing a personalized summary of the day’s activities and tasks. It also includes organizational tools to minimize things slipping through the cracks. However, it can be overwhelming for some, and can lead to unproductive work habits. The Daily Briefing can be turned off by a user or their administrator.
To disable the Viva Daily Briefing, a user can go to the Settings menu and select “My Viva” in the left pane. From there, they can adjust their preferences and select “Disable Viva Insights”. They can also choose to turn off the Viva digest email. These settings will apply to all Microsoft Viva Insights surfaces, including the web experience and Viva app in Teams.
Alternatively, they can also disable the Viva Insights features at the tenant level. To do this, they must log in to the admin center and navigate to the Viva Insights settings page. They must also clear all the checkboxes.
The Viva Insights web experience, Digest email, Insights Outlook add-in and inline suggestions, and Schedule send suggestions are all features that can be disabled by a tenant administrator. To disable these, they must uncheck all the checkboxes and click on “Save”.
Additionally, a tenant administrator can also change the default setting for Viva. This will enable or disable the Viva Insights experience for all employees. The admin can also choose to enable or disable the Viva Insights app in Teams and on the web.
Viva Topics is an intelligent assistant that uses the Microsoft Graph and other components to provide knowledge for users in their Microsoft applications. It can be used in the Office apps, SharePoint modern pages, search, and the Viva Topics app in Teams. Viva Topics is powered by the Microsoft AI technology, including Azure Machine Learning, Azure Search, and the Microsoft Graph. It uses these capabilities to learn about your users’ work, meetings, documents, projects, and tasks. It then presents these insights in the context of the application they’re using.
Unsubscribe from the Digest Email
Viva is a great tool to track your team’s performance and productivity, but the daily email can be overwhelming for most users. Fortunately, there are ways to disable the daily Viva digest email for all users in your organization. You can do this at the tenant level or for a single user.
Viva’s Daily Digest Email is a summary of the activities that happened on your account over the past day or week. It includes all the activity notifications you’ve been opted into, including meetings and external collaborations. It also contains a list of lessons that need to be graded, and a summary of your progress toward your goals and milestones.
If you want to stop receiving this daily email, click the unsubscribe button in the footer of the email. You can also opt out of the weekly Viva Digest by clicking the unsubscribe link in the footer of each email you receive.
You can also disable the Viva digest email by going to your notification settings and removing the check mark from the “Email me a daily digest of my Viva activity” box. Alternatively, you can go to your user settings and select the Notifications tab across the top of the page.
Each of these emails will include a link to your Viva dashboard, which displays all of your key performance indicators (KPIs). You can access these KPIs in the app and use them to identify areas for improvement. You can even set a reminder to complete your weekly tasks or prioritize your work for the day.
Viva Insights is a feature that analyzes the emails of your organization’s employees, meeting trends, and collaboration patterns to improve overall productivity and work-life balance. It’s a great way to keep your team on track and increase efficiency by providing personalized recommendations. If you’re concerned about email volume or response times, consider using an alternative tool like Email Meter.
Disable Viva Insights at Tenant Level
Viva Insights is an employee experience product from Microsoft that helps employees craft optimal work processes based on data, stats, and recommendations. It offers a range of pre-built views into the vast amounts of data it collects – are they in too many meetings, do they have the time needed to focus on their work, who do they collaborate with and plenty more.
Viva Insights collects information from various sources including emails, calendars, and collaboration tools to derive insights for individuals or groups of users. This is all done using machine learning and AI. It uses this information to offer a variety of insights to help users build healthy work habits, improve collaboration and productivity, and create better balance between work and life.
For example, Viva Insights will remind you to send praise to your teammates, schedule a virtual commute, take a breather break, or set aside uninterrupted blocks of time for focused work. In addition, it will encourage you to maintain your meeting schedules and manage external collaborations. It will also remind you to keep track of your tasks and projects, and it will provide a summary of your recent activity.
While Viva Insights can be very helpful, it can also be overbearing at times and may be seen as invasive. For this reason, it is important to disable Viva Insights for each individual user. In this article, we will show you how to do this on both the tenant and user level.
To turn off Viva Insights at the tenant level, open the Microsoft admin center and select “Settings” in the left menu. Select “Viva Insights” and click the “Manage settings” link. Uncheck the checkboxes for Viva Insights web experience, Digest email, and Insights Outlook add-in and inline suggestions.
To turn off Viva Insights on a per-user basis, open the Viva Insights home page and click the Settings (gear) icon at the top of the page. Then, select “Options” and “Opt out of Viva Insights”. This will prevent the app from using the user’s data to compute derived statistics for other users.
