In the last few weeks of 2022, I was working on a new module for Microsoft Learning. The module, Create Adaptive Card Extensions (ACE) for Microsoft Viva Connections, was recently published to the Microsoft Learning site!
This module will introduce you to creating custom Adaptive Card Extensions (ACEs) with the SharePoint Framework (SPFx) that can be used in Viva Connections dashboards. These ACEs will work within all Viva Connections clients including the desktop and mobile apps.
Customers can customize Viva Connections and Viva Home in multiple ways to create tailored experiences for their customers.
Developers can customize and extend Viva Connections with web parts created using the SharePoint Framework (SPFx). Editors can then place the web parts in content areas of pages and configure them to create a customized experience for users.
Another type of extensibility option developers and customizers can use to customize Viva Connections and Viva Home is with Adaptive Card Extensions (ACEs). ACEs are similar to web parts but primarily use Adaptive Cards to implement the user experience.
In this module, you learn the basics of ACEs including working with the Image Card template and displaying items from an external service…

… but also how to leverage some of the newer features, like custom actions to both show & select locations from a map.
