This year, Viva Engage introduced new ways to share, discover, and connect with coworkers across the organization through your storyline. On your storyline, you can create posts, ask questions, and share what you’re passionate about. And now, stories - short videos or photos are available in public preview in Viva Engage and Microsoft 365.

Stories overview

Stories deliver a familiar, delightful way to catch up and stay connected with your coworkers. You can find, browse, and engage with stories directly in your home experience or in the storylines tab in Viva Engage, Yammer, and coming soon to Outlook.



You can create or upload a story to share a quick update, capture an experience, celebrate a milestone, or highlight existing content. You can also use stories to connect with leaders and build your personal network to grow professionally and amplify your impact.




Create and interact with stories from across your organization

View stories from people you follow and suggested people. The stories carousel makes it easy to watch, react, and engage with stories. Stories remain on the carousel for 30 days, and stories stay on your storyline until they are deleted. Stories are stored in your OneDrive automatically.




Get started

Upload or record up to 90 second video to share with your followers. You can record in portrait mode on mobile, or landscape by using your desktop camera. Simply record a video using the Yammer mobile app and upload it directly to your storyline or you can choose to upload an existing photo or pre-recorded video from your desktop or mobile device. You also have the option to add stickers or text to your story or make simple edits like trimming your video.




Use Stories today

As your organization begins to use stories, we encourage you to share your feedback about the experience with us!
