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. Better document & files management

    It would be great if one could filter the documents and files gathered in the Yammer files section, using the headers, name, type, last updated by, last updated. And add if possible date uploaded & topics. This would enhance the knowledge management capacity of Yammer.

    • Edit All Company description

      Please allow us to edit the description of the All Company feed. The current text suggests its the "go to place" for posting when really we want to encourage the use of Yammer groups. The All Company feed should be reserved for content that is truly for "ALL" the company! We're tackling this through education too but changing the description would be a quick win!

      • Connect replies people make to each other under a post much more clearly

        Connect replies people make to each other under a post much more clearly, it's driving comments on our intranet (Yammer integrated in O365 sharepoint site) but people can't follow what they are saying to each other in conversation: because everything is dropped at the bottom chronologically. The roll over link reference is nowhere near good enough.

        • Be able to pin messages to the top of groups

          The idea is to be able to pin messages to the top of a group. This could be used to post welcome messages or important information. Announcements do stay at the top until read but that does disappear and doesn't affect new joiners to that group.

            We're considering this  ·  pganpgan responded

            Thanks for your inputs. We are considering this as part of several core messaging improvements. For instance, the ability to EDIT POSTs is one of the frequent requests that we are already working on.

          • 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.

            • Improved Notifications Settings

              Improved Notifications Settings:

              I would like a lot more control and options for notifications. I would like the option to choose an email and/or desktop and/or push notification and I'd like these options to be available to all the current notification options as well as the new options I'm suggesting below. (When I say push, I mean just a notification in the notification area of the site/app in the main menu)

              I would also like the option to choose to be notified for the following:

              1. A user I follow. When on a user's profile, next to the follow button…

              • Support a traditional threaded view with replies collapsible under the message they reference

                It's hard to parse the reply-to chain of a Yammer conversation. It would be easier if replies were indented under the message they reference and if the reply chains were collapsible,

                  We hear a lot of requests around making longer threads easier to digest, and are thinking about this problem. We don’t have plans to build a solution soon, but we’re considering this specific solution and others. Thanks for your insight!

                • More than one link in one post

                  Nowadays you can add one link in one post with nice feature (picture etc) and take the link away from text area. Often you need to put several links in one post. Now it´s possible only with awful text-links.

                  • Allow mandatory/dynamic groups

                    A mandatory group is a group to which users are automatically subscribed to. Eventually they do not have a choice to leave the group (this would be a setting).

                    A dynamic group is a group whose members are automatically maintained, based on user active directory attributes. (Ex: users where company=microsoft are members of the microsoft group). Same principle as dynamic distribution groups for email.

                    Example of use:
                    I want every user located in Country=France to be added to the group "Employees France".
                    CSV import is an option to bulk add users to a group. However, this process is too manual…

                      • 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.

                          • Allow use of emoji in the post and reply areas

                            I would like to see emoji tray enabled in Yammer that can be used as part of new post or a reply to a post. Emoji's add a zing to the communication and makes it more interesting. The same set of emoji's available in Skype would suffice. Adding an image or a gif emoji enhances fun in conversation which is absent as of now.

                            • Display images in shared posts instead of links to the original.

                              When users share a post containing an image to another group, the shared post should display the original image as well as the link back to the original conversation. This would be more engaging for the intended audience of a shared post.

                                Sometimes, our Internal Communication share something in a group and have to share the post in other groups. It would be interesting to able to select multiple groups when we post.

                                • Post a thread to multiple groups

                                  Yammer groups are silos; people have to join and subscribe to the thread to get notifications of new threads, and 'sharing' a thread to another group just creates another conversation in another silo. Just like how I can add in other people to the group, I'd like to be able to add in up to two additional groups (I'd need to be a member of the group in order to add them). This would mean a thread has a one-to-many relationship with groups.

                                  • Embed shared images, links, document and thread titles in notifications

                                    Blank messages get delivered to inboxes (when a user shares an image, link, discussion, or document) leaving busy subscribers cold. This needs to be remedied by embedding the content into the notification to provide at least some context.

                                      • Allow message searching in the ios app

                                        Curently the ios app has no message search function. It's just impossible to find anything. Could we have this, please?

                                          We are currently considering ways to improve search on Yammer. Improving search specifically on mobile is something we might consider in the future.

                                        • Enable inline images

                                          There is an inability to add images inline with the text of a post; they are all bunched together at the end of the post. This means people reading posts that refer to multiple images don't know which image is being referred to as they read the post, or the author has to write 'refer fig.1; refer fig.2' and so on.

                                            Currently we aren’t seeing a huge number of Yammer conversations with multiple attached images, but we absolutely EXPECT to see that number grow as more people use Yammer for getting work done.

                                            Question for you: in the past month, what types of messages have you posted or read that included multiple images? (i.e. schematics, event photos, etc.?)
