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.

  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

      • 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?

        • 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.

            • 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

              • 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.

                • have a team event calendar

                  I would love to have a pinned calendar/ roadmap somewhere on the side for each group so that people can see the upcoming events in the corresponding areas (marketing & communication internal events/ product sprints, etc...)

                  • 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.

                    • 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.

                      • Allow existing groups to be merged

                        It should be possible to merge two or more existing groups.

                        When groups are created its not always possible to predict successful they will be. Network effects etc may cause some groups to be successful and have traffic and other groups to go quiet. Additionally groups may grow to subsume topics that originally had a specific group as it may be found that the topic is too niche for it's own group.

                        Given this when one group (A) effectively becomes a superset of another group (B) and where the other group (B) has gone very quiet then it is desirable…

                          We recognize that “group sprawl” happens, that groups become inactive but still contain relevant information, and that organizations use Yammer as a common knowledge base that works best when information is organized and easy to find. We don’t have plans to build this right now, but we’re thinking about this problem and appreciate the insight.

                        • 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.

                          • 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,

                                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.

                                  I am aware that list order of picture file is not actually in the order I have uploaded. When I uploaded a picture file, I found that it was not in the order I had uploaded. Therefore, I hope the file to be listed in the order just as I have uploaded.

                                    • 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.

                                        Hello,

                                        The "edit" function is great. Thanks to have implemented it. Apparently, it is not possible to edit a post in an external group? Is it normal?

                                        Thanks a lot
                                        Arnaud

                                        • 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.?)
