Building SharePoint Framework Adaptive Card Extensions

Learn how to extend the Viva Connections desktop & mobile apps by creating custom SFPx Adaptive Card Extensions (ACEs).


Microsoft released Viva Connections in September 2021 and an associated experience, Viva Home in January 2023. Developers can use SharePoint Framework (SPFx) web parts & extensions to customize pages in the Viva Connections & Viva Home experiences.

Viva Connections & Viva Home offers an additional feature not found in SharePoint Online: dashboard pages & panels! These dashboards contain interactive tiles enabling users to quick consume & take action on.
