Measuring your good feelings with Microsoft Viva
Every day, when Microsoft Teams starts up automatically, you have the chance to enter your feelings about how you start the day. This opportunity is not there for your employer. This opportunity is only there for your own benefit.
If you give a short reflection daily, Viva can help guide you through once a less-than-pleasant day. This is because you can look back yourself and do everything you can to understand how this came about.
In addition, under the "stay connected" tab, Viva offers you the chance to stay connected, accept meetings with colleagues you see less.
In "protect time," you can set fixed blocks in your calendar when colleagues are not allowed to disturb you.
