Feedback by UserVoice

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.

  1. Tag other groups in a post

    It would be great to be able to tag other groups in a post. Also to tag other groups in a comment so it would be much faster to share. And implement this in the app version. Like it is possible with socialcast
    Thank you

    • I would like a feed of just the groups I've joined and people I follow.

      I believe the "Following" tab used to do this, but now it's just conversations I follow. I have no interest in clicking group to group, I want to get all my updates in a single feed with no extra noise.

        We have read your feedback on the request for feed of groups you have joined and people you follow.
        [EDIT] Clarification on Following Feed related to earlier comment: The following feed does not show conversations from your groups.
        We had made improvements to the following feed in Yammer in February earlier this year to bring more focus to people and topics on Yammer. The improvements were focused on helping surface content from people, topics and files you follow. To help surface that content we no longer show conversations from your groups in the following feed. Groups in the left nav will continue to show indicators for new content you have not seen. For more details refer to the Message Center post : 26543

              • Enable Customizable Two-Step Validation for posts to the 'All Company' group

                We'd like Yammer/Microsoft to enhance the tool so organizations & their Yammer admins can enable (if they choose) a "second-check" step for all users who attempt to post to 'All Company'.

                - Yammer admins can enable or disable this feature
                - Yammer admins can modify the "2nd check" message that would appear to end users if they attempt to post to 'All Company'. The msg appears adjacent to 'Submit' and 'Go back' buttons.

                This 2nd-check message box give our company the opportunity to give a company-designed message to educate users that they're communicate to all and aware of possible consequences…

                • Have the ability to pin announcements, so users can catch up if they're away on hols

                  The ability for users to have a place where they can scroll through announcements in a group. Similar to new conversation and all conversation tabs.

                  • React to posts like on facebook.

                    It would be good to be able to react to a post like on facebook.

                    It would be quicker and have fewer comments making it neater instead of having to type "that's sad". So you just react to the post instead!!!

                    Cheers

                    • Allow me to block users from my timeline. At the moment, i am forced to read posts from people i choose not to follow and its not great.

                      I am tired of reading posts from people on Yammer i choose not to follow, often not work related. At the moment, i can hide a conversation but thats time consuming as they post a lot of stuff that is not work related. On twitter and facebook you can do this, why not Yammer? I want a block feature for ones i know are a waste of time

                      • Improve how Sharepoint articles appear when shared in a Yammer post

                        Currently when we include a SharePoint news article link in a yammer post, it displays as a hyperlinked URL in a plain white box - this isn't very engaging or aesthetic. Would it be possible for the article image/thumbnail and title to embed in the Yammer post to give more context to the article the post relates to?

                        • Add links to posts without displaying the WHOLE ugly link.

                          I don't understand why this isn't already a feature to add a web link? Yammer already resolves the link and pulls images and title text so why not hide the ugly web link?

                          • Hide "Invite your Coworkers" option

                            We'd like the ability to disable or hide the "Invite your coworkers" box in the upper right corner on the homepage of yammer. Our users are super sensitive to mass emails and we've had an issue in the past where someone clicked this button and sent an invitation to the whole company, which generated chaos for our support desk.

                            • Display posts chronologically

                              Because posts are not chronologically displayed, it is almost impossible to stay informed of the latest & most relevant posts. In a business setting, no one cares if a picture or item was "Liked" multiple times unless they are the poster. I find I am not seeing new information because my feed prioritizes old "popular" posts. I had a new employee join Yammer on October 19th and I did not get the "Welcome her" message until today (13 days later!). Not acceptable in a business setting.

                                Thanks for the feedback! It’s helpful to hear about how you’re using Yammer and your expectations for it. We find that most of our users use their groups to stay up to date on important work conversations (conversations are displayed by most recent reply there), and use their home discovery feed for discovering things they wouldn’t otherwise see. We feel that it’s important for you to discover content that might be relevant, so we use several factors including recency and popularity to show you what you might like to see. Sorry we missed the mark on this one, and thanks for sharing the feedback.

                              • Allow Yammer Administrators to Disable GIF Feature

                                Last Week, a Yammer User posted a picture a GIF of a lady taking off her top and then a sign posted CENSORED over her breasts. This is completely inappropriate. We need to be able to moderate our Yammer Groups better and Yammer is encouraging non-professional behavior with the GIF suggestions. Right now when posting a basic windows tip, if I click the GIF button, it is suggesting I add a GIF of the Dave Chappelle Prince Episode or someone taking a swig from a bottle of booze. Most of our users are customer service people who specialize in auto-parts.…

                                  Thanks for your feedback. We are not currently considering the ability to disable this feature, but we are experimenting with ways we can improve filtering so there is less “work inappropriate” content available.

                                    Yammer should provide download statistics (no. of downloads over time) for files uploaded. These statistics should be available also to the end user in a simple way. All details could be available to admins.

                                    • 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.

                                      • show me only conversations I follow in a group

                                        Besides "New" and "All" conversations that should be options to filter the conversations relevant to me, e.g. "Followed" (all conversations in this group I follow).

                                        • turn off All Company

                                          Turn off notifications for All Company. Most of the notifications come from groups that are irrelevant, so it's spam. There is no need for 10,000 people to see "Congrats Janine!" when they don't know the poster/receiver/dept/team/.... The fact posts in a group could be sent to the whole company makes me less likely to post, because I don't want to spam people with something totally irrelevant. Worse, I don't think people know how it works.
