Office Groups/Teams/Viva Engage is a Powell web part. With one web part you can access 3 things: 

  • Office 365 groups 
  • Viva Engage
  • Teams 

With the search tab, you can easily find your groups in all office 365.  

You can find the example of this web part on Powell Intranet My board page. 

In the example below, the first tab displays the list of your teams, while the second displays the list of all teams.  




Configure the web-part settings


  • Template: choose the display (currently Orion group list is chosen)
  • You can select the “see more option” and set a label of your choice. This button will send you to either Office groups,  Microsoft Teams, or the Viva engage groups. It depends on which “groups” you will activate in the web-part settings. In the example used on this page only Teams groups are activated, so the “see more” button will send users to Microsoft Teams.  (Image below)


If you activate Viva Engage groups, you will be redirected to the Viva Engage page. If you activate Teams groups you will be redirected to Microsoft  Teams page and if you activate Groups, you will be redirected to the Office groups.  If you activate all the three of them, you will have three tabs displayed on the web-part : for Groups, Teams and Viva Engage.  The “see more” button will redirect users to a page depending on which tab users will be on. Below you can see the example when all the three options, Office Groups, Teams and Viva Engage groups are activated.  (You will find how to set these properties in the web-part settings below)
