Make Adaptive Cards for Viva Connections

With the introduction of Viva Connections, Microsoft has added the ability to create Adaptive Cards for a dashboard which presents employees their data in bite-sized snippets they can expand to reveal more data.

Digital Assistant already uses enhanced Adaptive Cards, that can connect to 3rd party business apps. This lets organizations create real-time "snippets" of data from any 3rd party app, not just limited to Microsoft, that can in turn be pushed to Microsoft Viva Dashboard.

Embed Cards with the Digital Assistant WebPart

Easily embed any Digital Assistant Card with the Digital Assistant WebPart, making it simple to display data from other business apps and sources on any SharePoint page. Once connected, you'll be able to place any Adaptive Card you made in Digital Assistant directly from anywhere you can add WebParts in SharePoint, i.e. sites and groups.
