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 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!

    • 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.

      • Enable Yammer to suggest posts/threads based on the words/keywords the users are typing

        Enable Yammer to suggest posts/threads based on the words/keywords the users are typing?
        This would prevent users creating the same topics over and over.

        • Allow the ability to mention groups

          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.

          • be able to access my bookmarked posts on the mobile app

            It doesn't seem to make a whole lot of sense that I can't check my bookmarked posts on the mobile app.

            A lot of our workers are away from their desks a lot throughout the day. They 'expect' to be able to bookmark posts so that they can read them when they have the time. More often than not its on their commute to/from work, at lunch or even at home on the couch.

            I've seen responses to similar posts from early last year. Is there a plan to implement this feature for mobile?

            • 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.

              • 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.

                • Allow users to change order of Groups

                  It would be extremely helpful if we can arrange the order of the group. Individuals should be able to customize that on their own. For example for Marketing team members, they would want all the marketing groups to be at the top etc.

                    This is no longer prioritized, but we’re working on a few new improvements to your groups list. We may revisit this in the future.

                    To learn about how we decide what features to build, check out this talk members our user research, product management, and data science team gave at Ignite in September 2017. It shares our process of all the methods we use to listen to our customers and how they input into our roadmap. https://myignite.microsoft.com/sessions/53799?source=sessions

                  • 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.

                    • Only first 3 photos visible

                      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.

                      • Improve Hashtags

                        - When using the "Add topics" feature to add topics / hashtags you cannot use "#hashtag", but have to enter "Hashtag". This leads to us having multiple ##hashtag topics (hashtags with double hash/pound prefix). Why can't users enter the topics as they are displayed with a hash/pound sign? You also can't merge ##hashtag topics with #hashtag topics. "Topic already exists".
                        - Where can I see a list of my followed topics? Why don't I have a personalized stream showing only topics I am interested in?.
                        - Why can't we hide certain topics / hashtags per group? In the group "Microsoft…

                        • 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.

                            • Provide a mechanism to find posts that I've liked.

                              There are times I can recall liking a post, but find it difficult to find that post again. It would be good if I could find posts that I've liked in a similar way that I can find conversations that I've replied to. This has been requested by a couple of other uses on our Yammer too.

                                • have hide post/conversation functionality on the mobile app

                                  We've just completed usability testing between Yammer and Workplace by Facebook.

                                  While our people prefer the desktop version of Yammer. They prefer the mobile version of Workplace, calling out the absence of some basic 'expected' features from Yammer.

                                  Being able to hide posts/conversations on the mobile app would go a long way in helping them manage their feeds so they can focus on what's important to them.

                                    • Allow folders in the left navi to organize my yammer groups.

                                      Give us one layer of folders so we can organize the left navi and avoid unnecessary scrolling.

                                      • 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...)

                                        • Support rich text formatting in Yammer posts

                                          Let me use bold/italics and simple bullet points to make Yammer posts easier to read.
