Instead of requiring the user to go into the Sage HR system to find what they are looking for, they save time by viewing available leave days through the Viva Connections dashboard.
Viva Connections can be installed on Teams and accessed through the SharePoint home site it is linked to, on both desktop and the mobile app. You can link to and bring in data from Microsoft 365 apps or several third-party systems.
Adaptive cards can add value in other business scenarios, including providing quick access to learning resources, streamlining timesheet submission and increasing survey visibility on the Connections dashboard.
Result of the Integration
Users can now view their remaining holiday days through cards on the intranet. By clicking a button, they are brought to a screen where they can request time off from their unused holiday balance.
The Viva Connections card enables you to enter a valid Sage HR URL which will allow the card to work correctly. To accomplish this, we make use of Power Automate to handle retrieving the data from Sage HR via their API. This pulls information about the remaining balance that the user has accumulated to date.
