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...

  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

      • 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

        • 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.

          • 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?

            • 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.

              • 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.

                • 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.

                  • 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?

                      • 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

                        • 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?

                            • 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.

                                  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.

                                  • Mute Groups From the All Feed

                                    By default, our view is the All feed (versus the Following or Discovery feeds). I like that in the All view I see new groups and such, and I'd like to keep seeing those. What I'd like to see is the ability to mute groups that I don't want to know anything about any more, so that I can still read the All feed to see new groups that come along.

                                    For example, if there was a group called "Funny Stuff" that has public messages (i.e. shows up in everyone's All feed) and I want to stop seeing those messages,…
