MC417898 – Updated September 21, 2022: Microsoft has updated the rollout timeline below. Thank you for your patience.

Microsoft Viva Insights is introducing new recurring time booking options to make it easier to take regular breaks during the workday, protect time to meet weekly learning objectives, and have daily time to catch up on emails and chats. These booking options will be accessible to the user through the Briefing email sent at the end of the week as well as through the Viva Insights app in Teams.

The feature is only available to those with a Microsoft Viva Insights subscription.

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 93424

When this will happen

Microsoft will begin roll out in late August and expect to complete rollout in early October (previously mid-September).

How this will affect your organization

Users with a Microsoft Viva Insights subscription will see options to book recurring time for catching up on messages, taking breaks, and learning through the Briefing email as well as Viva Insights app in Teams.

What you need to do to prepare

You may want to notify your users about this new capability and update your training and documentation as appropriate. Learn more about the Briefing email from Microsoft Viva, and how Microsoft protects your privacy.
