DO:

  • Be positive, kind, and courteous. “Like” posts and ask questions. Be friendly with others on the network. Feel free to provide feedback, but keep it constructive.
  • Look at Forums, Inspiration, and Product ideas and join conversations.
  • Post to the right place! Is your question about Manager Insights? Post it to the “Manager Insights” forum. Using tags like #settings and #directreports also help people understand what you are talking about. Not sure where to post? Feel free to message an admin.
  • Mark answers as a solution. This helps ‘close’ the thread so folks know you’ve received the answer you were looking for.
  • Search before you post! There is a chance that your question has already been answered. The search function on this platform is very powerful, take advantage of it. Speaking of which...
  • Keep private stuff private. Double check to make sure you are posting confidential information responsibly and in the correct place.
  • Add a profile picture and fill out your profile! It’s easy and quick, and helps people discover you as an expert.
  • Invite others to the network: https://community.vivainsights.microsoft.com


DON’T

  • Post questions expecting to find support to break-fix issues. The best place to get immediate Microsoft support is to open a support ticket in your Office 365 Admin Console: Get support | Microsoft Docs. If you have a problem, we want to make sure it’s tracked, ticketed and escalated as needed so you’re back up and running as quickly as possible. We do not offer ticketed support in the Microsoft Viva Insights Community.
  • Post solicitation, spam, and/or content free posts. This is a place for all of us. Don’t fill the groups with 3rd party promotion. Violators may be banned from the network.
  • Be negative. Constructive feedback is good, but avoid personal remarks, sarcasm and blame.
  • Use crazy fonts, profanity or ALL CAPS. All caps and strange fonts are annoying.
  • Wander off topic. No posting about sports, religion, politics or other things that don’t belong here.
  • Share content from a private group. Respect your colleagues and our acceptable usage policy.
  • Harvest user data. Some members may share personal information here. If you spam members from this network, Microsoft may take legal action.
  • Post content you didn't write. While quoting blogs and other sources is fine, if you include content that wasn't written by you, please include a source link/attribution.

Where any aspect of this Code of Conduct is in conflict with the Microsoft Terms of Use, the Microsoft Terms of Use will take precedence.

 

Feedback & Ideas

This is a community for the Microsoft community (you). So if you have community feedback or ideas, please reach out to the administration team! 

 

Attached Code/Scripts/Programs

While we allow people to post attachments, scripts and code as they can be helpful to solve problems in the community, users must take responsibility for running any code submitted to the site outside of official Microsoft channels. If you don't know what it does, don't run it.

 

Flag inappropriate content for review

This network is a big place and moderators cannot see everything. If you see any violation of these guidelines, please notify us within the community by choosing "Report Inappropriate Content" from the message's Options menu and let us know why you feel the content is inappropriate. If you have any questions about our guidelines, terms, or policies reach out to the admin team.
