The use of Microsoft Viva requires using a modern SharePoint site as a home site.
The documentation for enabling Microsoft Viva describes how to set a new SharePoint Online Home Site, but lacks an important step.
You must swap the new home site and current home site, in addition to setting the SharePoint Online home site. The swap cmdlet archives the current home site.
# Replace with the new home site URL
$NewHomeSiteUrl = 'https://varunagroup.sharepoint.com/sites/Varuna'
# Replace with current home site URL
$CurrentHomeSiteUrl = 'https://varunagroup.sharepoint.com/'
# Replace with an archive URL
$ArchiveUrl = 'https://varunagroup.sharepoint.com/sites/oldhomepage'

Being in a situation where you need to recover IT components or even a whole IT infrastructure after a disastrous event can be stressful. It would help if you stayed concentrated while dealing with the constant status requests by the management.
In such a situation, it can help to isolate your mind by listening to music. Music that helps you focus your thoughts, anger, and feelings in such a moment.
Maybe you find my Spotify playlist helpful. The playlist contains about 12 hours of music.
Listening to music using a headphone is good, but playing music loud and feeling the rhythm and every single bass is much better.
Wouldn't it be nice if you could stay in Microsoft Teams even when working with your emails? Microsoft Teams is getting even more mature by providing an App for integrating Outlook into the Microsoft Teams client.
At least it seems that this is the case. or was it?
Last week a new App, still in preview, showed up in the Teams Admin Center (TAC) of some demo tenants. I filtered the list of available apps using Outlook as a search term.
When selecting the app, the details showed that the app was still in preview (v0.41).
As long as the app is enabled within Teams, you can add the app to a Teams Setup Policy and make it available for users.
Your users can then access the Outlook App using the Teams app bar.
You can simply click on Outlook in the app bar and, voilá, you have your Outlook inbox in Microsoft Teams. Due to the architecture of Microsoft Teams, you have access to your Outlook on the Web version of your inbox.
Enjoy Microsoft Teams and Microsoft Outlook. - And remember today's date.
This year's MCT Summit Middle East took place on 19-20 March, with two full days of content about Microsoft technologies. Four session tracks plus a workshop track offered possibilities to learn and share knowledge, not only with the MCT community.
The session recording will be made available on the event website.
I enjoyed talking about Exchange Hybrid, what it is, why you need it and how you implement it using the Hybrid Configuration Wizard.
My PowerPoint presentation is available on Slideshare.
I look forward to next years' event.
