Yammer

Thanks for taking the time to give us honest feedback. While many of you may have a specific feature in mind (build this!), we’d ask you to add a note about WHY. What’s the problem you’re trying to solve, what’s the task you’re trying to do. The better we understand that, the better we can make Yammer.

I'd like Yammer to...

    Allow to paste directly from clipboard an image coming from (example) screen clipping, instead of saving it and adding as attached file.

    • Use Yammer groups for developers: Q/A like "stack overflow"

      We try to use yammer groups to post Question regarding dev community, but without text formatting and boxing it is not easy!
      Is it possible to add a new type of post "Tech Q/A" with formatting features (with colors), better also with markdown format?

      • connect yammer group to existing office 365 group

        Upon creation of a yammer group I would like the option to connect it to an existing Office 365 group. Also have the choice of which feed to be used for discussions. Yammer or Outlook. A bonus would be if there's a way of changing it over timer if the usage or demands changes.

        • View Pinned Items on a Mobile phone

          I have done a straw poll of Marks and Spencer Yammer site and out of 184 votes thus far 64% view Yammer via their mobile phone however they are unable to view the Pinned section on their phones. Is it possible to have a drop down menu on each group so that the pinned items can be viewed on the phone.

          • Navigate user to specific group while logging-in

            Currently, when a user logs in to Yammer, they will be navigated to default 'All Company' group. It would be nice if we can have a setting to specify, to which group the user should be navigated by default, while logging in.

              • Improve the feature to give "view only" permissions” for the users on Yammer.

                For security reason, I hope the feature will be implemented enables controlling view permissions for user on Yammer.

                  Thanks for your suggestion. To help us understand more, tell us a little about why this feature is important to your workflow. In which contexts is view only important? Within certain groups or across the whole site? Why should some people not be able to post? Thanks!

                • office 365 groups connect to yammer

                  Make it possible for an existing (old) O365 group to connect to a Yammer group to have the discussion feed there instead. I.e. provision "backwards" compared to now.

                  • Redesign the "Like" option to a Reaction option

                    "Like" has always been a useful way of reinforcing someone's post or reply, but it's always been restrictive. You might very deeply agree with something someone has said, but it may not be the right reaction to "like" it. - eg. "After 30 fantastic years of working with you all, I'm sad to say that I'm leaving." - LIKE.

                    Change LIKE to REACTION and offer a range of choices:
                    - Like, Love, Funny, Surprise, Sad, Upset etc. And use emojis to express them.

                    In terms of reporting, instead for saying 15 people liked this, you could say 15 people reacted…

                    • Disable displaying "Success" items of the Administrator contents.

                      I have the comments for the display of "Success" for the admin contents. Currently, it is not necessary to confirm by the display to completed all New Network Checklist, therefore, it would be great the function will be able to disable the display of "Success" items for the admin as soon as possible.

                      • Allow me to refer to for example John as opposed to John Smith in a post

                        When I reply to or refer to John Smith and Susan Douglas for example I would like to refer to John and Susan on my post as these are colleagues and I know them so to use full name on the test looks unusual. This can be done in Facebook messaging where the full name is printed on the message but I can delete the surname.

                        • Improve the Comments box when integrated on News Pages

                          When embedding Yammer for comments on a News Page on SharePoint online the link the article is really bulky and ugly. Can this be reduced in someway so you don't get a comment feed on SharePoint online that is basically full of links to the news article (see this post from the Tech Community for an example kindly posted by Niclas https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/SharePoint-Developer/Yammer-integration-for-comments-on-news-pages/td-p/55392)

                              We have a requirement to call Yammer APIs based on an OAuth token that expires and is issued using the same methodology as other O365 API tokens. The methodology outlined in the article https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/askyammer/2016/11/04/preauthorizing-the-yammer-js-sdk/ has at least two serious security challenges.

                                • Improve the feature of unified the group ID name between Office 365 group and Yammer.

                                  I am aware of the behavior which does not reflect to the group ID name of Yammer even the user changed the group ID of Office 365 group. In the environment where Yammer and Office 365 group are connected, it is supposed to reflect both group IDs at the same time when updating the information.

                                  For ease of management, I hope the feature will be implemented to unify the information or modify the group ID freely.

                                  • allow users to cancel join requests to private groups.

                                    It would be nice if you can cancel join requests to private groups. It's annoying to have groups show up in the list on the left hand side even though you have not been approved yet. Maybe it would also be good if the group did not apear in your list of groups until your join request is approved.

                                      Thanks for the suggestion! I can definitely see how it would be a pain point to have non-actionable groups cluttering your groups nav.

                                    • Do not remove the "Online Now" / "Chat" function

                                      Please do not remove this feature, its really vital for my work as a project manager who is using yammer.

                                      Having a good overview of who is online and directly contacting them is important for me.

                                      • Security in "All company group"

                                        Yammer could offer the ability to be able to limit on an Admin level who is able to post to the “All Company” feed or the ability to hide or delete this group.

                                        Also, offer the posibility of security in "All company group" for a better management. For example:

                                        1. Remove or hide the “All company” group?
                                        2. Limit people who are writing in “All company” group?
                                        3. Restrict comments posting and instead allow to use the “Like” feature?

                                          Thanks for your insight, this is helpful. Our concern with is that for a lot of companies, All Company is a useful place to discussion. If you’re comfortable sharing, how large is your network? We’re wondering if size of a network is a factor in whether All Company can be productive or not.

                                          Improved Notifications Settings:

                                          I would like a lot more control and options for notifications. I would like the option to choose an email and/or desktop and/or push notification and I'd like these options to be available to all the current notification options as well as the new options I'm suggesting below. (When I say push, I mean just a notification in the notification area of the site/app in the main menu)

                                          I would also like the option to choose to be notified for the following:

                                          1. A user I follow. When on a user's profile, next to the follow button…
