March  2023

ScreenCloud Post

Improve employee communication and engagement, boost productivity, and enhance the overall workplace experience by integrating Microsoft Viva Engage with ScreenCloud. By taking content from Viva Engage posts and generating a visual experience appropriate for a digital signage experience, organizations can create a more dynamic workplace environment that keeps employees informed and engaged.

With ScreenCloud’s Microsoft Viva Engage app you can:

  • Generate a visual experience for digital signage using Viva Engage
  • Extend the reach of your content to deskless and remote workers
  • Generate QR codes for links and documents allowing users to quickly access content on their mobile devices

Please note that this app requires that you have a Microsoft account with the appropriate credentials, such as Microsoft 365 Suite or Microsoft Viva.

Please also note, the Microsoft Viva Engage app only comes available with the Pro or Enterprise subscription plan, which you can find out more about here. Please contact your customer success manager or our support team at if you wish to acquire the app.

Here’s how it works:

1. Select and install ScreenCloud’s Microsoft Viva Engage app

1.1. Get started by logging into your ScreenCloud account here and choosing the ScreenCloud Apps Store from the left-hand menu.

2.7. Go ahead and click save, and move on to the next steps!
