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. Allow to add more than 500 email addresses in one shot when adding members using .csv file

    When trying to add a list of members from a .csv file, I noticed than if the emails are more then 500 hundred the tool gets stuck and doesn't allow the adding. In multinational companies we have lists of more than 10.000 people. Can you please raise the limit for bulk adding? I want to be able to add 20.000 people to an official corporate group when needed, without splitting my .csv file in files of 500 items each.

    • Add support for an Iframe login to authenticate to the Yammer API without the use of a popup which is blocked by most browsers

      The client side flow described here (https://developer.yammer.com/docs/oauth-2) was working in an iframe until about a month ago.Yammer Office 365 Identity Enforcement is Enabled so when I am logged in to SharePoint/Office 365 the iframe should automatically authenticate and return to the configured redirect page with my token. Currently it is moving me to https://www.yammer.com/session/new, which off course will not work in an hidden iframe. I see the same behavior in an popup in Chrome (also taken to the session/new page). The popup login in IE is working though (while the Iframe isn't).

        • 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

            • Integrate Yammer in the full Office 365 developer platform

              We have developed a custom web part to extract messages with image and video attachments from a specific group and display them on any page in SharePoint. The web part is used to engage users to share their experience within the company on Yammer on specific topics.

              However, using the REST API /messages/in_group/[:group_id].json to return all messages we have run into a problem.

              When calling the API with query param threaded:true we expected to retrieve the thread starter (first message) for each thread and having them sorted by created date and not by "latest activity".

              This means that if an…

              • Split the "New Posts" next to the groups in the left panel into two counters, one for "New Posts" and one for "New Replies".

                Split the "New Posts" counter next to the groups in the left panel into two counters, one for "New Posts" and one for "New Replies". Usually it is more important to read new posts, than to read replies, so it would add greatly to the user experience.

                • 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

                          • 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?

                                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

                                • More engaging link display when linking to Sharepoint documents

                                  We're using Yammer as our main tool for communication widely within the company (approx 100 empl) and Sharepoint for file storage. At times we want to market files on Yammer that have been uploaded on Sharepoint.

                                  When copying e.g. a link to a Powerpoint stored in Sharepoint and pasting this in a Yammer post, the "link box" displaying the link beneath the actual post is not at all engaging. As of now we only see the link snippet and where on Sharepoint this is stored. It would be very good if the "link box" showed at least a PPT icon…

                                  • Alert Yammer admins if a new O365 domain is added and Yammer is not in the 1-1 state

                                    If a new verified domain is added to the O365 tenant, the Yammer network becomes in a non 1-1 state and Office 365 Groups are not created when new Yammer groups are created.

                                    As an admin, I'd like to get an alert when this happens so I can take action. We have different groups managing O365 and Yammer so that's why we need this feature.

                                      • 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 network specific profiles

                                          I use Yammer both as a Microsoft employee and for a non-profit (as part of an External network). Due to limitations of mobile having only one identity, I'm forced to use my MSFT AAD across all my networks. However, my persona and role are obviously different across these networks. Allowing a different "about me" and profile picture would be helpful
