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. to provide download statistics for files

    Yammer should provide download statistics (no. of downloads over time) for files uploaded. These statistics should be available also to the end user in a simple way. All details could be available to admins.

    • show me only conversations I follow in a group

      Besides "New" and "All" conversations that should be options to filter the conversations relevant to me, e.g. "Followed" (all conversations in this group I follow).

        • 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.

          • Have the ability to pin announcements, so users can catch up if they're away on hols

            The ability for users to have a place where they can scroll through announcements in a group. Similar to new conversation and all conversation tabs.

            • I'd like Yammer to allow maps to be attached to posts when referring to an address.

              I'm telling my company about a training that's coming up in the area and would like to show on the map where it is, and not just type the address into my post.

              • 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

                  • 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.

                      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.

                        After some time of use Yammer hosts tons of private chats. According to our policies we shouldn't save mails and conversations more than 6 months if there aren't specific reasons. Please give us settings to control this as in Outlook

                        • 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.

                          • Yammer should ask only for the year of birth instead of the full date of birth for age verification

                            We understand that it is necessary to verify the minimum age of Yammer users.
                            But, what the use to collect the precise birth date of the user ? Just having the year of the birth date is quite sufficient and is not against privacy.
                            It is clear that this demand of Microsoft is far than the data required to make the age verification.
                            It means that, due to the evolution of European regulation dealing with personal and private data, Microsoft will have to justify and prove why it is fundamental to get the full content of the birth date.
                            Before…

                            • 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.

                                • 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.

                                  • see recent posts

                                    I'd like Yammer to be able to show me all new posts in a chronological order across the whole company.
                                    In my company, we have many channels and the users don't follow every one of them but maybe there is a interesting post they will miss because of it and the fact, that it may isn't listened in the discovery channel. Additional to that, we have Yammer embedded on the front page of our company so that the users don't have to always open Yammer to be informed what's going on in our company.

                                      • 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.

                                        • 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
