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. Improve how Sharepoint articles appear when shared in a Yammer post

    Currently when we include a SharePoint news article link in a yammer post, it displays as a hyperlinked URL in a plain white box - this isn't very engaging or aesthetic. Would it be possible for the article image/thumbnail and title to embed in the Yammer post to give more context to the article the post relates to?

    • 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...)

        Update Jan 2019: This is on our roadmap for our events area. Having a calendar and being able to send calendar invites to members of a yammer group is an important part of live events and other event types such as community meet-ups. We don’t have an ETA at this time, though.

      • 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 are working towards connecting All Company to be an Office 365 group. This requires significant work due to it’s size and because it automatically includes everyone in the company. Once this work is done, the All Company group will then be customizable similar to other groups.

            Unfortunately, there are no quick fixes for this in the meantime – due to the fact that All Company was not engineered the same as other Yammer groups, it’s not as simple as revealing functionality to edit. We understand the pain point, and look forward to delivering this functionality in the future.

          • Turn off Yammer welcome #joined

            Admin should be able to turn off the automatic posting of new members. "Chris Christensen has #joined the gk.no network. Take a moment to welcome Niklas-Aleksander." this message bugs down the posts since we have hundreds joining every week. The users would like to see the content, not all the new joiners. When the network is more mature we could turn it on again.

            • Allow admins to export a group members list

              Allow admins to export a group members list via the group settings, and highlight which members are admins. This can be useful when a group is changing and its membership needs top be reviewed, and also if a group is closing in favour of using another group. The group members could be invited to the other group by exporting them into a csv and then uploading them into the other group.

              • Convert internal private group to external group

                Convert an internal private group with content to an external group, so that external users can access to this group and its content without recreating a external group and all the content to this external group

                  • Hyperlink or link availability in "Update" section

                    Hyperlink option is not available in the posts via Updates but only to group admins by an announcements. Would be a good feature even for posting updates as well.

                    • Display images full size when clicked.

                      When we upload images Yammer shows a small version in the post. When you click the image to view, it is not full sized. You must download the image first to see it in the original intended full sized glory. This is very troublesome for screen captures with text that needs to be read with today's large format monitors.

                      • Recognise & show preview links on an organisations own SharePoint Online

                        Currently links on an Organisations SharePoint Online are not recognised by Yammer and a preview is not shown.

                        This is the organisations own instance of Yammer and should recognise and preview content on SharePoint Online and other O365 content within its tenant.

                        • Hide the 'Download app' prompt

                          There's a "Try Yammer for Windows" dialog box that displays in the bottom-right corner of Yammer. When a user closes this box, it should not reappear, at least for the remainder of that Yammer session. Currently, it reappears every time the user navigates to a new page, which is quite annoying as it covers content (group links, delete group button, etc) and needs to be closed each time.

                          • 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!

                              We understand how important it is to build this – not being able to brand Yammer is a significant pain point that we’ve heard, and takes away from making Yammer an “official” tool. We plan to make the name, avatar, and description of All Company customizable, but there is significant engineering work that needs to happen before we can support it. We are working towards connecting All Company to be an Office 365 group. This requires significant work due to it’s size and because it automatically includes everyone in the company. Once this work is done, the All Company group will then be customizable similar to other groups.

                                • URL with @ symbol break

                                  When you include a URL with an `@` symbol in it, such as a link to a Medium post, Yammer doesn't properly parse it as a URL and it subsequently breaks.

                                  My assumption is that it kicks into the 'tag a user' feature, but breaks.

                                  Steps to reproduce:

                                  - Create a message
                                  - Paste a Medium URL in (eg: https://medium.com/@ryanfb/how-i-failed-to-replicate-an-86-million-project-in-1-line-of-code-615048a1f9d0)
                                  - Post message
                                  - Generated link doesn't take you to the correct place (it strips out everything before the `@` symbol)

                                  • Enable Picture-in-Picture for videos in iOS and Desktop Safari

                                    Videos playing in desktop or iPad safari don't have an option for Picture-in-picture. It would be nice to be able to pop a video out and continue doing something else.

                                    • Yammer Group Activity log

                                      Hi,
                                      Is there any way the Yammer admins can view and analyse the activities (all) related to a specific Yammer group ?

                                      BR

                                        We will be announcing some new reporting capabilities for Office 365 admins in the next few months and will be making some exciting announcements around reporting in Yammer at Ignite in September.

                                      • see who was the last joiner of specified group

                                        to prise i.e. 100th joiner
                                        to engage users more :)

                                        • New Japan data location

                                          We would like to use Yammer for social business networking, but we need to have the data location in Japanese due to company's legal restrictions.

                                            We have a roadmap to build local data residency. General availability for new networks in the EU is slated for mid next year. I don’t have a date for Japan yet, but we are working toward this.
