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. 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?

        • 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"

          • 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.

            • 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!

              • 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…

                • 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.

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

                    • 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.

                      • 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.

                        • 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?

                              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.

                                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

                                • 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.

                                  • 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.

                                      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.
