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...

  1. 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…

    • 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.

        I'd like to be able to upload a 360 degree photo, and for users to be able to navigate around that photo. Example of it working, and the code required, is here:

          • Improved Notifications Settings

            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…

            • 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.

              • have a team event calendar

                I would love to have a pinned calendar/ roadmap somewhere on the side for each group so that people can see the upcoming events in the corresponding areas (marketing & communication internal events/ product sprints, etc...)

                • Have a feature to check the log-in status of each user on the Yammer top page

                  Quoting customer:
                  One can confirm the log-in status of users with the "Online Now" function on the Yammer top page, but due to the current A/B test, the "Online Now" function has disappeared for some users.
                  I`d like you to implement a function that continuously makes it possible to check each user`s log-in status on the Yammer top page.

                  • Remove double hashtags from topics

                    If users add a topic and use #topicname, Yammer will post that topic as ##topicname instead of just #topicname. User behaviour is so used to using a hash at the start of the topic from consumer social networks, so it would make sense to just remove the double hashes, and add the single hash if the user didn't add it (as per current).

                    • Please don't remove the "hide this conversation" option

                      Yammer has become unusable to me since removing the "hide this conversation" option. Typically I scan the new posts for conversations that are relevant to me, and close out things that I don't ever need to see again by hiding them. Now, every time a new comment is posted, the conversation reappears as "new" but when I read the conversation, it's just a reply. Sometimes that's as trivial as someone saying "Thanks for posting this."
                      I don't need to see that. If people aren't using the "hide" feature, maybe it's because it's hard to discover. If nothing else, I'd like…

                            etc.
                            I know that some might be accessed in a way, but I struggle a lot to find what I need too many times.

                                  • allow groups to further customize their pages (visible pinned content, header photos, etc.)

                                    It's hard to tell groups apart from one another since the only distinction is the color of the header and profile picture. Plus, it's useful for certain groups to be able to notify their members of something important (announcements, events, etc.) in an interesting, customizable way. Pinned/featured images or posts?

                                    • Let users choose which sharepoint site/group to connect in stead of creating a new one

                                      When we create a new Yammer Group, a associated O365 Group is created. But if we already have a SharePoint site, we don't want a new location for files. That conflicts with our settings for retention, metadata, IRM etcetera.

                                      • Need a flag in the Group Settings, where we can define whether the tags are editable by other users apart from Admin.

                                        Currently system allows any user to delete or change the tags for any post. We would like to have the feature by which , we can restrict this alteration of the tags in a group.

                                        This should be on Groups level and not on each feed level.

                                          Display a Fully Functional Tag (Topic) Cloud

                                          A fully functional, and easily discovered, 'tag' cloud would really enhance the user's experience in discoverability.

                                          Topics are highly underused and relatively difficult to discover. Even the Topic list page does not expose usage (counts). Folks can't easily determine what tags (topics) are currently in use in order to locate the associated postings.
