Navigating Workvivo on Desktop

The look and feel of Workvivo on Desktop should feel similar to other platforms you use every day. There are many different sections within Workvivo that all users can navigate through with ease.

Why not take a tour:

Activity Feed

The Activity Feed is a live feed of updates, images and videos that are posted from people across the organization. It can be accessed by clicking "Activity" on the top navigation bar.


Spaces are micro-communities or interest groups within Workvivo.  Content posted to your spaces also appears in your personal activities feed, providing a highly personal experience.

Viewing Spaces

To explore Spaces on Desktop you must click the Spaces Icon on the top navigation bar. You will see all spaces which have been created. Clicking ‘My Spaces’ from the menu on the right will show you all the spaces you have Joined. You can view spaces by selecting different categories.

Space Search

It is possible to search for a particular Space by typing your search criteria into the search bar on the left.

Join a Space

To join a public space you must Open the Space and click "Join Space". Note you can also be invited to join a space.


To access the News section on desktop you must select the news icon on the top navigation bar. 


  • Under the Latest News section, you can access all recent and historical news articles that were published to a global audience, your team(s) and space(s) you're a member of. You can open any article to read it and like or comment on it.

To see  your organisations goals you can click the goals icon on the top navigation bar.

You can click on a particular goal to view content that was posted on Workvivo linked to that goal.
