While assigning a user to this role is a pre-licensed capability, the actions this user can perform depend on the nature of their license, core versus premium.

Corporate communicators can do the following things:

  • Create campaigns
  • Manage campaigns
    • Publish draft campaigns to be Active and viewable to all users in the network.

    • Set Active campaigns to Ended when a campaign is finished.

    • Republish "Ended" campaigns as "Active" again for reoccurring campaigns.

    • Delete campaigns that are not relevant or created by mistake.

    • Update certain assets on a campaign page such as:

      • Goal tracker
      • Cover photo
      • Pinned posts
      • Pinned resources and links
      • Theme colors for the campaign hashtag
      • View campaign analytics
    • Identify leaders

      • Manage their audience

Remove user as a corporate communicator

To remove a user from this role, select the delete icon on the right side of the corporate communicator list. The user won't be listed as an active corporate communicator in your network.

Configure your tenant

As a Global admin or Engage admin, you're encouraged to set up your Viva Engage enterprise experience for all employees before they start to use the application. This practice helps maintain a consistent experience. Engage admins can navigate to the Setup and configuration tab in the Viva Engage admin center and select Configure tenant.

They're then routed to the Yammer admin center, where they can perform the following actions:

  • Configure the network
    • Set the tenant network name
    • Require users to confirm email messages before posting
    • Restrict who can upload files, and limit file formats
    • Allow Tenor GIFs in messages
    • Control how links are displayed
    • Allow message translation
    • Set the default system message language and more
  • Customize the look
  • Manage domains in Office 365
  • Migrate a network to Native Mode, if this isn't already done


Because Viva Engage is power by Yammer technology, configuring the tenant through the Yammer admin center will publish changes to both Yammer and Viva Engage. We are working to bring these configuration options to the Viva Engage admin center as part of our admin roadmap.
