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. Currently, the Briefing email is available for Microsoft 365 Enterprise users with Exchange Online mailboxes in these languages.
Some eligible Exchange Online users may not receive the briefing email today as they do not have their language preference set in Outlook. Starting in mid-May, the Briefing email will be sent in English to users who have their Outlook language setting as ‘null’. Users will receive an email for 30 days with a note requesting them to update their Outlook language preference. If users do not provide a language preference, the email will be discontinued after 30 days.
[When this will happen:]
We will begin rolling this out in mid-May and expect to complete rollout early August.
