Managing notifications in Viva Engage


How do I manage notifications from Viva Engage ( that I am receiving in my email inbox?

What is Viva Engage?

  • Viva Engage is a a way for leaders, communicators, and employees within an organization to connect, that was previously branded as Yammer.
  • Even if you have not used this service, all users with A5 licensing currently have a Viva Engage account.


Users are able to opt themselves out of these notifications through one of two methods. The fix is to ensure account notifications in Viva Engage (Yammer) are set to your preference (most likely, no).

  • The default notification settings notify users via email for activity, including for All Company - the entire organization.
  • Based on how it is configured by Microsoft, administrators have no way to remove users from receiving communications from All Company, or stop generic Yammer update emails.
