How Does Viva Work with Microsoft Copilot?

One of the exciting features introduced with Microsoft Viva is Copilot, which collaborates with various Viva applications. Copilot assists sales teams by simplifying complex tasks and providing AI-powered recommendations, enabling them to work more efficiently and effectively. Let us take a closer look at how Copilot enhances various aspects of the sales process within Viva:

Viva Goals: Copilot in Viva Goals streamlines goal setting and management by guiding executives through creating objectives and key results (OKRs) and simplifying goal tracking across the organization. This feature ensures that teams align with the organization’s strategic priorities, fostering a purposeful culture.

Viva Engage: Copilot in Viva Engage helps leaders create compelling and inspiring posts by providing prompts and suggesting personalized messaging based on trending topics in workplace communities. It assists in driving authenticity, engagement, and collaboration across the organization.

Viva Topics: Copilot in Viva Topics allows employees to delve into critical issues through a conversational interface. It provides information on related topics and projects, empowering individuals to gain knowledge and stay informed.

Viva Answers: Copilot in Viva Answers assists users in formulating specific and complete questions. It extracts relevant topics from the queries, helping categorize and find appropriate answers more effectively.

By incorporating Copilot into Viva’s applications, Microsoft makes AI-driven assistance accessible to sales teams, enabling them to focus on what they do best while optimizing their performance.

Exploring the Main Components of Microsoft Viva:

Microsoft Viva encompasses several main components designed to enhance the employee experience. Let us take a brief look at each of these components:

Microsoft Viva Connections: Viva Connections is a framework that allows organizations to deliver their intranet directly within Microsoft Teams. This customizable app within Teams provides employees access to internal communications, company resources, and community participation. With Viva Connections, organizations can effectively communicate and deliver content to employees, even if they do not log into SharePoint daily.

Microsoft Viva Insights: Microsoft Viva Insights promotes personal well-being and builds organizational resilience by offering actionable insights within the daily app’s employee use. It gives business leaders data-driven insights and recommendations to address critical questions about resilience and work culture. Managers can gain valuable insights into patterns contributing to burnout and stress, such as collaboration overload and lack of focus time.

Microsoft Viva Goals: Viva Goals is a goal-setting and management solution that aligns teams with an organization’s strategic priorities. It enables individuals and companies to organize and track their goals using the “Objectives and Key Results” (OKRs) methodology. Viva Goals integrates with Microsoft Teams, Azure DevOps, and other work management tools, ensuring seamless alignment and progress tracking.

Microsoft Viva Engage and Leadership Corner: Viva Engage is a social-community app that fosters connections among colleagues and encourages the exchange of knowledge and experiences through conversations, images, and videos. Leadership Corner, introduced as an extension of Viva Engage, offers leaders a dedicated space to connect with employees, gather feedback, and track sentiment and metrics in real-time. This component promotes transparency, two-way dialogue, and stronger leadership-employee relationships.

Microsoft Viva Sales: Microsoft Viva Sales is the first role-based application within the Viva suite, tailored specifically for sales teams. It provides a fully integrated seller experience platform that combines knowledge, learning, communications, goals, and insights. By automating manual parts of the sales process through AI and unifying data management, Viva Sales frees salespeople to focus on their core tasks and excel from any location.


Microsoft Viva is revolutionizing the employee experience by seamlessly integrating essential tools and features into Microsoft 365 and Teams. With its role-based applications like Viva Sales and the power of Copilot, Microsoft empowers sales teams to enhance productivity, deepen customer relationships, and drive business growth. By leveraging the capabilities of Microsoft Viva, organizations can create a more engaged and efficient workforce, fostering a culture of collaboration, well-being, and continuous improvement.
