Customize a message to your survey takersWithin General Settings, enter any org-specific guidance that you’d like added to your existing privacy statement.  This message will apply to all new and scheduled surveys and can be translated into additional languages.

We are just a few weeks away from the Copilot in Viva Glint Private Preview!  This innovative new tool within the Viva Glint platform is designed to help organizational leaders and HR analysts easily understand, interpret, and act on employee feedback. Say “goodbye” to the tedious task of sifting through thousands of comments – Microsoft Copilot in Viva Glint provides short, natural language summaries that accurately represent the feedback you need to see.


Changes to how you’ll set up your employee attributes – As an admin, the changes we’re rolling out will allow you to view and edit your original schema after its initial setup, incorporate user time zones, setup survey and dashboard language fields, set up personal email fields for surveying exiting employees, and we’ve updated tenure buckets, too.
