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. 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.

        • 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 ?

                • 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.

                  • have the same sign-in experience as the other O365 apps especially the experience coupled with MS Authenticator SSO.

                    At the moment when you sign in through the Yammer! app the experience differs from other O365 apps (i.e. OneDrive, Words and etc.) when ADFS is enabled. The number of times a user has to sign-in (enter username and password) does not promote good user experience.

                      We plan to build this  ·  Luc responded

                      We agree. There are a number of factors that make our sign-in experience more complicated than expected but work is currently underway to remove additional complexity and improve our Yammer app login experience.

                    • Sync Display Name from Office365 instead of First Name and LastName

                      Is there a way to use the Display name instead of the First Name and Last Name. We have some users who hate their real/legal names. At least in the AD and Offie365 they have the option to change their display name. Is it possible to add this feature in Yammer?

                        We have been looking at using the Display Name from ActiveDirectory instead of first and last name, which would have other benefits such as allowing LastName FirstName format in cultures like Chinese, Japanese or Korean.

                        Currently, for users who don’t like their names, they can also change the displayed names in Yammer (through the gear menu).

                      • 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.

                        • 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.

                            Networks with more than 1000 members will not see the #joined message, but it’s currently in place for smaller networks. We’ve heard this request a lot and are currently rethinking our #joined message.

                          • allow me to change the way of breaking the lines within Yammer.

                            Although the [Shift + Enter] within Skype makes it possible to break a line, I am aware that the Yammer's [Enter], instead of the [Shift + Enter] leading to the post completion, leads to the line break. Due to the difference of behavior between Skype and Yammer mentioned above, there would be a possibility that any users could post their messages mistakenly to Yammer, and therefore I hope the additional feature to be implemented that enables for the Yammer users to perform the line breaks along with the [Enter] or [Shift + Enter].

                              Thanks for your feedback! We are planning to make a change to our current behavior such that [enter] or [shift + enter] become new lines.

                            • Private messages as ongoing conversation threads, instead of a post & replies.

                              It would be good to have the private messages work more like ongoing IM conversations, rather than like emails with an original message and a chain of replies.
                              It would make the sidebar much tidier, as the same person or group would not appear multiple times.

                                  We are looking to align Yammer external group membership to the O365 guest model where, when allowed by the tenant admin, groups don’t need to be created as an external group in order to accept external users.

                                • Allow LIVE video streaming in Yammer

                                  Skype Broadcast allows us to add a Yammer feed to a LIVE broadcast event page. However, in our case (and I am thinking we are not that different from global companies) the ongoing conversation takes place inside Yammer, so it would make much more sense to reverse that notion and instead allow us to mount LIVE video events inside a Yammer group - as that LIVE ebvent will also be a part of the ever ongoing conversation and not a standalone event.

                                  • inform users when creating a group that 'unlisted' groups do not spool up an associated Office 365 group.

                                    Currently, if a new group is created as 'unlisted', it won't spool up an associated Office 365 group, providing resources like SharePoint, Planner and OneNote.

                                    This isn't spoken about at the group creation stage, and needs to be so that users aren't confused when what they're expecting doesn't happen.

                                      Hi there, the reason this happens is that there is a privacy concern is that O365 groups does not currently support private unlisted groups. They are working on it though, so we will at some point begin connecting those group types too.

                                    • Hide Planner link (right side of the page) when the user does not have it enabled in its O365 tenant.

                                      With O365 Groups, the user sees a Planner link on the right side of the Yammer page. This is not desirable when the user does not have Planner enabled on its O365 tenant. Is it possible to find a way to automatically remove this link for these users?

                                        Thanks for the suggestion! Currently, this is not feasible, but we do plan to have this pending some updates from the Planner team.

                                      • Set up alt enter to do new line and enter to post

                                        Set up alt enter to do new line and enter to post. Alt Enter will line up with EXCEL to go to new line and hitting enter to post will line up against most platforms for posting. This will stop people posting in error before completing an entry.

                                        • Synchronize Yammner account default language with Office 365 account

                                          When a new user is logging into Yammer, the default language is English and is not synchronized with the prefered language from Office 365.
                                          This is really painfull and do not help users to stay into Yammer !
