Share Site with your organization
Once the site has been created you will need to provide access to the relevant people within your organization. So first of all, you need to open the new site and click Share
Microsoft has made it very easy to share the site with everyone in the organization and prevent external sharing. If you type “Everyone” into the search as shown below you will see the required group (Everyone except external users) or you could add your own Security groups/users.
Untick “Send email” and click “Share”
Customizing the Global Navigation tab
This is an optional element to complete and for this post I am only going to point you at the Microsoft documentation.
Switch on Enable Global Navigation and change navigation source to Home site.
This post will track Microsoft Viva features from In Development to Launched, then archive the Launched features so you as the read only see the new developments and track them through the release cycle from Microsoft.
