M365 Changelog: Microsoft Viva – Praise Highlights in Profile Card in Teams and Outlook

Rabia Noureen


MC500903 – Praise in Microsoft Teams is designed to appreciate the effort that goes into the wide-ranging, collaborative work that Teams users do. Users can send praise to their colleagues through the messaging extension pinned to the Teams messaging bar or through the Microsoft Viva Insights app in Teams. For both, admins can use the Microsoft Teams admin center to enable/disable Praise.

With updates coming soon, praises received will be highlighted on a user’s profile card in Teams and Outlook. There are settings available for users that prevent praise highlights from being visible on their profile card.
