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. 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.

      • 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

        • 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…

            Thanks for the feedback! We probably wouldn’t build a check-point system for posting, but we’re considering ways we can improve and make All Company less noisy.

            • Provide the same functionality as the embedded feed for the new Yammer webpart

              The new Yammer webpart should support the same features as the embedded version eg.
              - Support clickable links
              - Support display of images
              - Show all comments, not just one
              - Like directly from the webpart
              - Display new posts immediately
              - Only go to Yammer if the user explicitly want to go there, otherwise stay in the webpart
              - Optional setting how many posts are displayed. Now it is always 4.

                  • 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

                    • 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

                      • I would like yammer to have polls on side banner!

                        Polls are great on yammer, but when new posts comes in, it goes below and out of visiblity. I would like to see if we have options to add poll on side banner!

                        • allow custom "Group Patterns"

                          The "Group Patterns" available aren't suitable for business and are a bit silly. Please allow us to upload our own image or just disable the patterns.

                          • To better personalise groups, allow admins to upload a banner image

                            Colour is nice, a dinky pattern is nice - but they aren't personal to the group

                              This would prevent users creating the same topics over and over.

                                • 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?

                                  • 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.

                                    • Based on text analysis, I'd like a visual indicator (and filtering functions) showing when a post is entirely congratulatory.

                                      While many people like to read such posts, they don't really add all that much functionality or new information to discussions; it'd be useful to be able to filter them out or at least have them marked in some way before viewing/loading the full text. Presumably direct responses to viewers' own posts would be exempted by default as people are more likely to want to read those regardless.
