M365 Changelog: Updating Admin settings for paused Microsoft Viva Briefing emails

MC690172 – Based on customer feedback, early this year Microsoft paused Viva Briefing emails as part of a larger initiative to improve the overall Viva user experience. (MC486289 December ’22).

The setting, “Let people in your organization receive Briefing email,” has been accessible in the Microsoft 365 admin center under Org settings, despite the fact that the Briefing emails are paused.

To eliminate confusion and align with the Briefing email pause, this Admin setting will be hidden.

When this will happen:

Microsoft will roll out this change starting late November 2023 and expect to complete early December 2023.

How this will affect your organization:

This change neither adds nor removes any new functionalities for Briefing emails, given that they’re paused. Briefing emails remain paused.

What you need to do to prepare:
