Summary:
Starting in mid-June 2024, the ability to create a new post or reply to an existing post directly using email will be retired from Viva Engage (Yammer). Users must instead utilize interactive emails in Outlook. This change will not affect other email-related Engage features, and retirement is expected to complete by late June 2024. Admins may need to alter business processes and review internal help or guidance for end-users. Alternative mechanisms are available for automatic posting workflows.

Details:
Updated June 6, 2024: We have updated the rollout timeline below. Thank you for your patience.
We would like to inform you of an upcoming change that affects how a subset of users post and reply to conversations via email. The ability to create a new post or reply to an existing post directly using email will be retired from Viva Engage. Interactive emails in Outlook provide the richest way to stay engaged in Viva Engage conversations, polls, questions, and praise, without leaving the Outlook inbox.

Historically, users could create new posts in a Viva Engage community by sending an email to a specific email address for that community. Additionally, users can reply to an existing post via an email sent to that conversation. These flows will stop working. Users must instead utilize one of the options listed below for their scenario.
If users attempt to post in a community or reply to an existing community post via email after the feature is disabled, they will receive an email notification explaining that the feature is no longer available. All other email related Engage features will remain unaffected. Community posts will still generate email notifications, and users will still be able to reply and react to posts using the Viva Engage Web, Mobile, Teams, and Outlook interactive email experiences.
[When will this happen:]
Retirement will begin in mid-June 2024 (previously late May) and is expected to complete by late June 2024 (previously mid-June). We will not be providing extensions for continued use of these retired features.
