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...

    • Replace deleted posts with replies with a marker indicating a post was deleted

      When posts with replies are deleted, the replies appeared orphaned and can be assumed to be the original post, and misunderstood as it's not known they are in response to another post. It would be clearer if the deleted post was replaced with a placeholder that indicated a post was there that has since been deleted, which could be as simple as text along the lines of "This post has been deleted by the author."

      Sometimes a whole unnecessary discussion can arise based on a misunderstanding of the first reply which could be avoided by such an indication.

      • 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?

          • List of Inactive groups

            Get list of groups that have no activity in 90 days/180 days.

            This would help clean up groups

            • Hide the 'Download app' prompt

              There's a "Try Yammer for Windows" dialog box that displays in the bottom-right corner of Yammer. When a user closes this box, it should not reappear, at least for the remainder of that Yammer session. Currently, it reappears every time the user navigates to a new page, which is quite annoying as it covers content (group links, delete group button, etc) and needs to be closed each time.

              • Have a 'forward to Yammer group' option as a choice in Outlook

                Have a 'forward to Yammer group' option as a choice in Outlook. This would be easier if a list of groups appear and I did not have to know the email address to send/post from email to a Yammer group.

                • Add an "active" DISLIKE button similar to LIKE but with the opposite meaning.

                  As with LIKE a count display of LIKE's and UNLIKE's could indicate popular sentiment (LIKE or DISLIKE) for a particular post or reply without the need for busy people to post a comment every time they disagree with a post.
                  UNLIKE = Thumb down, LIKE = Thumb up?

                  • 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.

                    • Allow users to put a title when posting to Yammer

                      Currently in yammer, the only way to post with a title is announcement which group members cannot post.
                      We would like an option for any user to post to yammer with a title.

                      • Openning a discussion forum on Yammer

                        As far as I know, a discussion forum is not available Yammer. To be able to ask a question and gain points by answering someone's question would be great. To increase the usage of forum, reminder emails can be send to the users such as "these are the top topics this week"

                        • Add a “Remind me about this post” feature. You can have Yammer remind you to take action on a post.

                          The Slack tool has this feature currently. For any post you can click the ellipses and tell Yammer to send you a reminder about that post. This is helpful because you may not have time to respond right away but don't want to forget to. Slack offers time increments like "Remind me in...20 minutes, 1 hour, 1 day, 1 week."

                          • Start up minimized (like Skype does)

                            Include an option for the Yammer app to start minimized to the system tray and pop up notifications. Skype has such an option. It leaves the desktop less cluttered on startup.

                              It would be great if we could '@' mention groups in a comment. This is an easy way to let an entire team/group/department become aware of something.

                                Thanks for the request! We’ve tested this before, and we didn’t keep it because of how easily it was to mention groups with thousands or tens of thousands of members, and it got really spammy. However, we might reconsider this in the future with some limitations.

                              • Please give the option to disable "WHO DO YOU WORK WITH" pop up.

                                This pop up is annoying and making adoption suffer. Especially when it pops up randomly for users who have closed it in the past. They say this "sucks" and stop using Yammer. I'm not kidding, they gripe about another invasive platform and I hate Microsoft. Let's not give them a reason to hate Yammer, give me the option to disable this popup for everybody. Please.

                                • Edit All Company description

                                  Please allow us to edit the description of the All Company feed. The current text suggests its the "go to place" for posting when really we want to encourage the use of Yammer groups. The All Company feed should be reserved for content that is truly for "ALL" the company! We're tackling this through education too but changing the description would be a quick win!

                                    • 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.

                                      • It would save time if I could "like" a message right from my Yammer InBox. More convenient than opening each thread just to give a thumbs up

                                        I get so many Inbox messages of people replying to my post or a post I have replied to. I like to be an encourager and "like" all responses but it takes so much time to open each thread and give a thumbs up. Would be so great if I could just thumbs up that response right from my inbox

                                          Thanks for the request! This feature would only benefit a small number of our users (most users do not have more than few inbox messages at a time, and those that have many do benefit from having additional context before they like something), so this isn’t a big priority problem to solve right now.

                                        • implement the feature enabling me to check the hashtags used in Yammer posts.

                                          Wishing the feature to be implemented that could enable for the hashtag format (#○○)within the body item of Messages.csv in case of outputting the logs through the operation with additional hashtags along with Yammer post editing feature.
