What is Valo Connect?
Valo Connect is the latest offering from digital transformation leaders, Valo. Valo Connect offers a complementary experience to Modern SharePoint, integrating natively with Microsoft Teams. Valo Connect sits inside Microsoft Teams to augment its capabilities, enhancing search, accumulating news and connecting employees. Valo Connect can integrate any SharePoint page inside Teams and allows you to create a tab-based navigation of the application.
Teams offers chat-based communication, real-time collaboration, video meetings, intelligent bot frameworks, and more. Alternatively, an intranet (built on SharePoint) offers news capabilities, web pages, structured data, and intelligent search capabilities. By placing the capabilities of a modern intranet within Teams, organisations can access all these benefits and end users can do everything they need to do from one central location.
By offering your intranet as a personal app within Teams, news and content can be delivered to end users without them having to leave Microsoft Teams. This integration is not limited to merely SharePoint intranet pages, users can bring in content from Power Apps, websites, or even custom web parts as a tab within their application or even integrate other Valo products. You can customise your app, choosing a set of tabs that suits your needs, allowing you to access the content and capabilities that are important quickly. With additional capabilities such as a people directory and a full search centre, the Connect app keeps information quick and easy to access. The Connect app is available on desktop, web, and mobile.
The Teams tab within the Valo Connect app supports both private and public channels and allows users to search for any files both within the whole Team or within a specific channel, filter files by properties, see content type, and open any document within the context of Teams. Users may also search for any news available within the current Team and see this news without having to exit Teams.
Tabs can be organised and configured in a number of ways, from choosing an icon to represent a tab to using settings to make tabs feel as native to Microsoft Teams as possible. There is not a limit to how many tabs can be created and tabs can link to SharePoint pages or custom URLs. Pre-approved tabs can be added to target either the personal app or the Teams tab, with the ability to clarify whether a page should be considered default when adding Valo Connect on a channel.
How does this benefit me?
By integrating the capabilities of a modern intranet within Teams, Valo offers a solution that enhances the Teams experience and centralises the communication and collaboration tools your organisation needs. By fostering a single-truth environment in which it is easy to access content and communications, as well as search and filter content, Valo Connect makes teamwork simple, personal, and efficient. This is particularly important in the current working environment in which remote working is the norm and an affordable and effective communication and collaboration solution is vital.
