New feature, Admin impact




Praise in Microsoft Teams is designed to appreciate the effort that goes into the wide-ranging, collaborative work that Teams users do. Users can send praise to their colleagues through the messaging extension pinned to the Teams messaging bar or through the Microsoft Viva Insights app in Teams. For both, admins can use the Microsoft Teams admin center to enable/disable Praise.
The praise composer and praise card design will be updated for all Teams users. The praise composer - accessible through the messaging extension pinned to the Teams messaging bar or through the Viva Insights app in Teams - is being refreshed to replace praise badges with emojis, introduce the ability to select gradient backgrounds. Additionally, in the Viva Insights app in Teams, praise trends are being introduced, privately surfacing analytics such as counts of praise sent and received, your top fans and top praises received.
