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. 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!

    • 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.

      • Praise a reply to a post

        A a lot of times a fabulous reply gets lost among the other replies. Would be nice to be able to praise a reply to an existing post.

          Thanks so much for your request! We’re not thinking about praising replies right now, but we understand that great replies can sometimes get lost in threads, so we’re considering pinned replies or answers as possible thread improvement.

        • 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?

              Currently you can only delete group messages. Allowing users to delete private messages as well is functionality we are considering adding.

            • Show the file description when viewing images to allow captioning

              Currently the only information about an image you see is the file name. Yammer has the option of adding a file description but I can't see that this is used anywhere in Yammer. It would be beneficial to show the file description when available. This would also act as a caption for images. It would also be good if that data was surfaced in the files lists.

                Thank you for the feedback. The description you enter is visible on the page for that file (under its title and above the image). Showing this description in more parts of the UI or more prominently is something we will consider. In addition, we plan start work to allow users to add image descriptions from mobile soon.

              • Have links to particular posts within the thread

                For now Yammer has one link for all post in the thread. Therefore when you reference one message, you get a link to the whole thread and it might be hundreds of messages.
                Please make separate links for each message.

                • 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.

                  • 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.

                    • Improve on sharing from private groups to other groups

                      In short, people are sharing posts from private groups to other groups. What happens is that other group gets like a teaser post and then members of such group when they want to read the original thread in private group get info that original thread is not reachable and is either deleted or private. This does not make sense. Either sharing from private groups should not be allowed or some other approach is needed as current approach does not make sense.

                      • Suppress or move "group actions"

                        The "Group Actions" part displayed on the right side of a Yammer groupe is not suitable :
                        - the section is positionned BEFORE the O365 ressources and BEFORE the links --> we need to scroll down to access useful information
                        - 2 of the 3 actions are possible out there so ...

                        Moving or suppressing this section will be a plus

                        • make it easier to share a Yammer post with a Team Channel

                          Please update the <Share> button to include a way to share the post with my Team on a selected Channel. I know I can copy/past a link to a Yammer post but that takes way too many clicks.

                          • Have better Audit Logging

                            The number of Yammer activities that show up in the O365 audit logs are surprisingly slim. Pretty good for admin activities I guess, but poor for user activities. Basically only when a file is uploaded or a message is deleted. What about when a conversation is started or replied to or a message edited?

                            • When creating Office 365 groups using Yammer it would useful for an admin to be able to identify that the group was created via yammer

                              Classroom used to prefix the group with section, for user created group it is possible to have a set prefix but for Yammer groups it is not easy to identify that is where the group originated.

                                • 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.

                                  • 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?

                                    • add the feature to download the files into Yammer app.

                                      I am currently able to download the filed attached to the pose within Yammer app, but am unable to display the downloading items there and to perform download. Therefore, I hope the additional feature to be available that could enable to allow me to download the files into iOS version Yammer as well since the download function is unable only for only the user utilizing iOS device.

                                      • office 365 groups connect to yammer

                                        Make it possible for an existing (old) O365 group to connect to a Yammer group to have the discussion feed there instead. I.e. provision "backwards" compared to now.

                                        • display answers to conversation automatically (without clicking Show Reply)

                                          When you are on Yammer, you can see now when a person is replying to a post. This is awesome ! But we still have to click on "Show a new reply" to display the post.
                                          could we have a behaviour like instant messaging ... typing .;;. displayed without any actions ? It could be very appreciated
