What’s new in Microsoft 365? Updates for June 2022


Here are four exciting features that have been announced for Microsoft 365 over the last month!

Adjust the look of your Microsoft Teams video

Now available before joining meetings, users of Microsoft Teams are able to enhance the video quality when lighting is poor by turning on the “Adjust brightness” filter. You also can use Soft focus to apply a subtle smoothing effect. These can also be navigated to during meetings.

Keeping business objectives on track through new Viva Goals module

Microsoft have announced that a new Viva module, Viva Goals, is coming to the employee experience platform. Viva Goals is a goal-setting and management solution, using the OKR (Objectives and Key Results) framework. It’s designed to engage and align teams and individuals to the strategic priorities of your business, allowing you to track goals and work towards a purpose.

Schedule learning into your calendar

Now you can make sure you’re prioritising learning and not missing out, by blocking out time for learning in your Outlook and Teams calendar directly through your Viva Learning module.  
 
Viva Learning intelligently suggests a time slot that fits the duration of the learning object chosen and matches with free time on your calendar. The add to calendar feature can be initiated from a course detail page, or a course thumbnail from the Home or My Learning tabs.   

Updates app in Microsoft Teams for your frontline

Updates in Teams is an app that enables your people to create, submit, and review all their updates, check-ins, and reports without disrupting the flow of work. Whether it’s a recurring processes like a facility inspection, or an in the moment update like an incident report, Updates in Microsoft Teams makes it easy for your frontline to manage them all in one place.  

There are a number of templates in the Updates app to help your teams get started, or you can build them from scratch to reflect specific business processes.
