MC414800: Updates coming to Daily Briefing Emails

The Briefing email from Microsoft Viva helps users start their day on track by surfacing information to prepare for upcoming meetings, follow up on outstanding tasks as well as protect time for independent work. A few updates are coming to the daily briefing email to provide users with ways to fine-tune their email.

Personalize your daily briefing emails via ‘favorite’ and ‘snooze.’ Favorited contents will be prioritized, and Snoozed contents will be deprioritized in your future briefing emails.

Favorite & Snooze

Currently, content in briefing email is delivered in a pre-configured order. Beginning in October 2022, the briefing email will add ‘favorite’ and ‘snooze’ preferences to provide users the ability to personalize and engage with content that matter most to them. Users will also be able to change their favorite and snooze preferences directly through the settings page.

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 93392.

Time zone card

We’re introducing the ability for users to review, confirm, and change their working hours and time zone settings directly from this email to help ensure that it is sent at the right time for users who have different current time zone settings and meeting hour time zone settings.

When this will happen

Favorite & Snooze

  • Targeted release will start in early October 2022 and expected to be completed by late October 2022
  • Standard Release will start in late October 2022 and expected to be completed by mid November 2022

Time zone card

  • Targeted release will start in mid August 2022 and expected to be completed by early September 2022
  • Standard Release will start in early September 2022 and expected to be completed by late October 2022

How this will affect your organization

As this change begins rolling out, users in your organization will see the following updates:

Favorite & Snooze

In the existing feedback bar for each card within the briefing email, there will be two additional clickable icons for marking favorite and snooze. Clicking on favorite will allow users to prioritize a particular card in briefing email; clicking on snooze will allow users to de-prioritize a particular card in briefing email.

There will be additional options within the settings page to control preferences for favorite and snooze.

Time zone card

  • Beginning in August, users may see the time zone card appear in their briefing emails.
  • Users will have option to review and change or confirm their current work hours and time zone
