Feedback by UserVoice

Yammer

Update: Microsoft will be moving away from UserVoice sites on a product-by-product basis throughout the 2021 calendar year. We will leverage 1st party solutions for customer feedback. Learn more.

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.

Please do not send any novel or patentable ideas, copyrighted materials, samples or demos for which you do not want to grant a license to Microsoft)

  1. 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

  2. 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

  3. Add links to posts without displaying the WHOLE ugly link.

    I don't understand why this isn't already a feature to add a web link? Yammer already resolves the link and pulls images and title text so why not hide the ugly web link?

    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.

  5. connect yammer group to existing office 365 group

    Upon creation of a yammer group I would like the option to connect it to an existing Office 365 group. Also have the choice of which feed to be used for discussions. Yammer or Outlook. A bonus would be if there's a way of changing it over timer if the usage or demands changes.

    This isn’t currently prioritized, but we’re considering it. Feel free to tell us more about why this would be important to you – it’s helpful for us to have context as we discuss it. Thank you!

  6. 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

  7. Replace deleted posts with replies with a marker indicating a post was deleted

    When posts with replies are deleted, the replies appeared orphaned and can be assumed to be the original post, and misunderstood as it's not known they are in response to another post. It would be clearer if the deleted post was replaced with a placeholder that indicated a post was there that has since been deleted, which could be as simple as text along the lines of "This post has been deleted by the author."

    Sometimes a whole unnecessary discussion can arise based on a misunderstanding of the first reply which could be avoided by such an indication.

  8. 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.

  9. Add an "active" DISLIKE button similar to LIKE but with the opposite meaning.

    As with LIKE a count display of LIKE's and UNLIKE's could indicate popular sentiment (LIKE or DISLIKE) for a particular post or reply without the need for busy people to post a comment every time they disagree with a post.
    UNLIKE = Thumb down, LIKE = Thumb up?

  10. Allow update/replace attachment when editing post

    When editing a post, allow the author to replace the attachment. For example, when they realize that the attachment needs an edit.

    You will be entered in a raffle for a chance to win a $60 amazon gift card upon completing this survey. Thank you!

  12. See who read a post in a group

    I would like to see who have read the posts which are posted in a Group. Same functionality which is possible in Facebook Groups. The names appears in a list so I can see who read the post.

    Tell us more about why this would be helpful. Is this only helpful for leaders “pushing out” communications, or are there other scenarios where this is important?

  14. Hide people/topics I do not want to keep seeing

    Allow a post and/or person to be hidden from my feed. Right now, I would like to hide people from my feed. Thanks

  15. Allow usage of Exchange distribution lists to invite users to a group

    We are a large conglomerate who has subsidiaries that would like to invite all of their thousands of employees to particular groups. Although they can upload a .csv, it would be better if they could invite users to groups based on pre-existing Outlook distribution lists.

  16. Suggest existing topics to the user when posting

    It will be good if a user can be prompted to choose one or more existing topics (suggested based on the post's content) for a post.

  17. Allow posting on behalf of / User delegation

    I some cases you don't want to post from your personal profile but from a generic/admin profile.
    Or switching between users would work too.

  18. disable file upload to Yammer, but allow selecting existing files in oneDrive/SharePoint

    Right now you can only disable the feature "File and image attachments", which disables all attachment options at once.

    A lot of European companies are not allowed to store files to Yammer storage (because data is not stored in EU datacenters) The other options to include existing files is no issue. Is it possible to have an option to ONLY disable file upload to Yammer, but still allow users to select existing files?

  19. Use Yammer groups for developers: Q/A like "stack overflow"

    We try to use yammer groups to post Question regarding dev community, but without text formatting and boxing it is not easy!
    Is it possible to add a new type of post "Tech Q/A" with formatting features (with colors), better also with markdown format?

  20. Conversation thread support in Yammer web part

    Sorry if this has been suggested already, but I didn't find it.
    The Yammer web part (modern or existing) should be able to support a conversation thread. Embedding a conversation thread at the bottom of a modern page, News page etc would be extremely useful to provide targeted conversation about the page.
