Overview

The Viva Engage tile shows you an overview of Viva Engage feed from the account you are logged in with. You can use the dropdown menu at the top of the live tile to switch between the tabs. Furthermore, you can view detailed feed information and can comment on posts. Clicking on the Viva Engage hyperlink will take you to the Viva Engage site.

Group feed ID

In the classic version, we used to be able to retrieve the feed-ID from the URL (displayed in green):

https://www.vivaengage.com/ws365.com/#/threads/inGroup?type=in_group&feedId=31229251857&view=all

However, in the modern version this is no longer the case, because the URL format has changed:

https://web.vivaengage.com/main/groups/eyJfdHlwZSI6Ikdyb3VwIiwiaWQiOiIxNDU3Mjk5NDU2MSJ9/all
For instructions on how to find a community's group feed ID in Viva Engage, click here. In order to retrieve the feed-ID, you can use Base64 decode

It is possible to switch between these versions within Viva Engage. However, this option may be hidden and is dependent on the settings within your organization. You must then allow users to still return to classic Viva Engage and switch back to the new Viva Engage at any time.
