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.

I'd like Yammer to...

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

    • 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.

          We’re considering making improvements to the way our topics and hashtags work, and also improvements to our analytics. We appreciate the feedback. If there are any specific use cases you’re thinking of, please let us know.

        • Add moderation feature to Yammer Groups

          Add an optional ability to moderate Yammer Groups. We'd like to use Yammer during events for asking questions and polling. We've used a tool called Sli.do for this but would like to move to Yammer but we require the ability to vet posts. For meetings where leaders and senior executives are presenting a negative comment or question can cast a negative feeling on a meeting.

          • 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.

            • Daily yammer email update to include heaidings of discussion. Yammer posts should have headings

              When I get a daily email update about the latest posts I don't want to read the whole discussion to see what it is about. Would like a heading so I can see straight away if it is of interest to me or If I can contribute. Current email shows parts of the post and the author. No use to me

              • 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?

                • be able to report posts to admin that breach our terms of use

                  As a company that is heavily regulated we have strict guidelines about what Yammer can be used for. This enables us to ensure our customers data is managed accordingly. It's important for people to be able to quickly report any posts that breaches our terms of use. Can we please have a report a post function that allows admins/community managers to be notified of any posts that breach these terms.

                  • Store login credentials in the Yammer Desktop app

                    As we have MFA enabled and the desktop Yammer app asks users to login each and every day, no one is using it. Other apps (dare I say apps that should be higher security) such as Outlook and Skype allow the saving of logins, so why shouldn't Yammer.

                    Until the Yammer app works as all the other O365 apps do and you do not need to log in to this every day, we are going to have a hard time pushing users to actually use this.

                    • Restore the full Pinned menu

                      It seems the Pinned menu was altered recently. Instead of having three options (Select a file on Yammer, Select a file on SharePoint, and Link) only the Link option is now available. Our Microsoft rep is seeing the same "feature" in her environment. Please restore the missing options or enable an administrator the ability to toggle these options on or off for the community. Changing this functionality without notice has caused confusion for some of our users, and doesn't make sense given the recent push to make SharePoint more integrated into the product. Thanks.

                      • Make Welcome Message configurable or show full Display Name in the Welcome Message

                        In our environment the Display Name is setup like this: "Last Name, First Name" (Because of Exchange and Skype Address Book).
                        In this case the Welcome Message shows up like this:
                        .... has #joined the network. Take a moment to welcome Doe,.
                        (Display name is "Doe, John".)
                        This is not pretty and confusing.

                              Thanks for the feedback! This is a little complicated for us to do from an engineering perspective, and it’s not a top priority right now, but we appreciate the insight that it’s been a painpoint for you.

                            • 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.

                                I would like Yammer to show a preview or gallery of thumbnails for all photos uploaded in a post. Only the first 3 photos show up. Quite often we post over 10 photos at a time, but no one will ever see them if they have to scroll through each one individually.

                                  • Hide poll results from the group assigned to the poll.

                                    There are times when you want the poll results to be private so people are not influenced by previous voters. There should be a way to hide poll results from the group, and only have them visible to the owner of the poll.

                                            While we don’t current plans to build this in the product, you can insert emojis by using a keyboard shortcut:

                                            Mac: Control + Command + Space
                                            Windows 10: Win + period (.) or Win + semicolon (;)

                                            The emoji keyboard will pop up and you can select which emoji you’d like to use. Hope that’s helpful!
