Can you match the facebook webcasting feature? We are looking to hold webcasts for people to access via Yammer

I won’t say that we’re building this exactly as requested, but we are in the process of building some live video features.
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.2 votes
Is there any way the Yammer admins can view and analyse the activities (all) related to a specific Yammer group ?

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.
to prise i.e. 100th joiner
to engage users more :)2 votes
Thanks for the request! We’re exploring ways to notify the admins and/or members of new group members.
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.1 vote
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.5 votes
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.
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?23 votes
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).
When editing a post, allow the author to replace the attachment. For example, when they realize that the attachment needs an edit.14 votes
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.18 votes
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.
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].4 votes
Thanks for your feedback! We are planning to make a change to our current behavior such that [enter] or [shift + enter] become new lines.
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.2 votes
Thanks for the feedback! We are currently working ways to improve our private messaging experience. Making one feed of conversations with a user is a project we plan to work on.
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.20 votes
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.3 votes
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?1 vote
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. 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.3 votes
Thanks for your input, we plan to do this, but don’t currently have a timeline.
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 !22 votes
I would like you to add a function that allows to limit the issuing of temporary passwords for Yammer, as even in environments that require SSO authentication temporary passwords grant access to the Yammer application.2 votes
We’re planning to remove this over the next year.
Unticking the box "3rd Party Applications" does more than disable 3rd Party Applications. It also disables the ability of all users to revoke existing applications.
This should be made clear, as the only way of revoking a 3rd Party Application is to enable 3rd Party Applications for the entire Network. That's counterintuitive, not to mention horribly confusing for end users.1 vote
Update: This actually seems to be a bug. We’re working on getting this fixed!
We have Yammer as an O365 service, yet are not able to embed O365 videos. We can with You Tube videos! This seems like a simple-simon thing that Yammer should support.53 votes
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.62 votes
We have plans to build this.
