Feedback by UserVoice

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

      • 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

            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.

          • 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.

            • 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

              • 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?

                • 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.

                  • 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.

                    • 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.

                      • 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 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.

                            • Openning a discussion forum on Yammer

                              As far as I know, a discussion forum is not available Yammer. To be able to ask a question and gain points by answering someone's question would be great. To increase the usage of forum, reminder emails can be send to the users such as "these are the top topics this week"

                                  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.

                                • Utilize full search query affixes

                                  Besides Yammer does not expose their search query syntax, it is way more mind boggling that the search algorithm isn't utilizing meaningful affix patterns for search.

                                  E.g. imagine the query being "bar", I 'd expect to find "foobar". This does not work. The search does not understand queries that resemble suffix or infix strings. Only prefix or full word (because whole word is 100% prefix) queries do work. So for the example above this means I'd need to look up "foo*" or "foobar" in order to find anything that contains "foobar".
                                  What does a user expect? Full prefix, infix and…

                                  • 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 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.

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

                                        • 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.
