M365 Changelog: Sharing a copy of praise in Viva Insights app in Teams and Teams Messaging Extension

Rabia Noureen


MC489162 – 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 the upcoming updates, users with Viva Insights subscriptions will have the ability to share a copy of praise they send. Shared recipients will be notified via Teams and can see praise details in the Microsoft Viva Insights app in Teams.

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 106122

When this will happen:

Microsoft will begin rolling out in January 2023 and expect to complete rollout by early February 2023.

How this will affect your organization:

This feature is available for users with Viva Insights subscriptions. In the praise composer within Teams messaging extension and Microsoft Viva Insights app, the sender of praise can share a copy of the praise with a user or a distribution list. When praises are shared, the copied peoples’ names are displayed within the praise card below the sender’s name.
