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. Restore the full Pinned menu

    It seems the Pinned menu was altered recently. Instead of having three options (Select a file on Yammer, Select a file on SharePoint, and Link) only the Link option is now available. Our Microsoft rep is seeing the same "feature" in her environment. Please restore the missing options or enable an administrator the ability to toggle these options on or off for the community. Changing this functionality without notice has caused confusion for some of our users, and doesn't make sense given the recent push to make SharePoint more integrated into the product. Thanks.

      • Use SharePoint document libraries, or even OneDrive libraries, instead of Yammer file storage

        For us, discussions very often focus on documents. The Yammer file storage is not a suitable place for storing important documents: there's no taxonomy, no document management and poor discoverability.

            We are working towards having all EU data in EU datacenters over the next few years. In the meantime, Yammer has recently achieved Category C Compliance in the Office 365 framework. This gives Yammer advanced industry standard accreditation such as ISO27001, SOC2 and European Model Clauses which speaks to the safety and security of data transferred from Europe to the United States. There are several large European customers that are actively using Yammer, with data stored in the United States such as:
            British Airways (UK)
            IKEA (Sweden)
            Rio Tinto (UK)
            GSK (UK)
            Engie (France)
            EY (UK)
            Henkel (Germany)
            Unicef (UK)
            Vinci (France)
            Capgemini (France)
            Centrica/British Gas (UK)

            Please see https://customers.microsoft.com/pages/advancedsearch.aspx?mrmcproducts=yammer to see case studies of customers around the world using Yammer successfully with their data located in the United States.

              • When posting files from Sharepoint- look and act like if posting file from computer

                Either when I copy and paste a link from a SharePoint site- or I select a file from SharePoint to include in a Yammer post it would be so much more captivating to the user if the file showed up like it does when you "upload a file from your computer" in the yammer post text box. You get a preview of the file directly in the post- and when you open the file you still see the discussion thread to the right of the file itself. This would really help user engagement and enable us to use a common…

                  • Pull the graphics from what I'm viewing on my IOS device into Yammer when I select "send to Yammer".

                    On my iPad or iPhone, when viewing articles in a browser, I select "send to Yammer." the only thing that comes over is the link. I would like the graphic that is tied to the article to come with the link. This makes the post in Yammer much more interesting/inviting.

                    • View Pinned Items on a Mobile phone

                      I have done a straw poll of Marks and Spencer Yammer site and out of 184 votes thus far 64% view Yammer via their mobile phone however they are unable to view the Pinned section on their phones. Is it possible to have a drop down menu on each group so that the pinned items can be viewed on the phone.

                      • Unable to upload documents from a web browser ( Safari ) in an Apple iPad device . This feature was there before a month .

                        Unable to upload documents from a web browser ( Safari ) in an Apple iPad device . This feature was there before a month . Having office 365 license in hand and unable to access it from iPad device will cause frustration for consumers like us. And the work around which MS has suggested is to have a Yammer app installed which will not be accepted in many companies by their security policies & Terms.

                        • Invite people with external email into Yammer groups without having to invite them as guest with the admin panel.

                          Invite people with whatever email they have into a specific Yammer group you created and not into the entire Sharepoint network via guest invitation.

                          • iOS iPad problems: number of unread messages changing/not changing

                            Hi all, the #yammer update on iOS (latest version updated, of course) is rather not working properly. I use Yammer on iOS 10.3 / iPad Mini 2.

                            I encounter several bugs, one listed here:

                            the number of unread messages shown in one group is decreasing when i scroll down, but pops up again with the original number (of unread messages) when i close and re-open the app.

                            • We would like to have a function of "post reads" (or "views"/ "reach") under the messages. "Likes" don't give us enough information.

                              As a Public organization we post a lot of administration messages which don't often have a character "we like it" but more information for our employees. To ask everybody to like messages so we know they've seen the message is not always correct (we are not always out for likes but to inform).
                              We also want to know that stuff we post is seen (as a motivation).

                                When clicking on a link to a yammer thread from an email on your mobile device, the app should open up to the referenced thread in the email. Currently, when you do this the app will open the app directly to the 'My Groups' homepage

                                • Implement Control+Enter as a keyboard shortcut for 'Post'

                                  Microsoft Outlook has the shortcut Control+Enter to send an e-mail. Google's recognised the popularity of this shortcut in attracting Outlook users and have implemented it.

                                  Microsoft should implement the Control+Enter shortcut for posting messages.

                                  Benefits include
                                  1) Allows conversations to progress more rapidly: pressing the 'Post' button requires using the mouse or using Tab+Tab+Tab+Space.

                                  2) The familiar Control+Enter shortcut for Outlook users doesn't need to be relearned for Yammer users.

                                  3) Increased consistency across Microsoft products.

                                        We’re currently building an integration with the Office365 Analytics Dashboard and Office365 Management API that will satisfy the Yammer analytics needs of some admins. More advanced reporting is available through third-party partners, like tygraph and Swoop.

                                      • make polling available on the Yammer app

                                        You're missing trick here Microsoft. At the moment you need to use a browser to use the full capabilities of polling. The app is not compatible. Once it is though, this'll give a reason for businesses to use the Yammer app in conferences, meetings, crowdsourcing events, where just need to take out their phones to vote in live polls. Results can then be shown on the big screen.

                                          Right now we do not plan to build native poll CREATION on the apps, but we are currently building vote/view capability on the iOS app and Android will follow shortly. Once this is done, it should enable the use case you mentioned – ability to get audiences to engage with Yammer polls with the phones in their pockets.

                                        • Don't cut off the Group Description in the Groups list

                                          I'd like to be able to read the full description of a Group from a group list. When i click on the group to try to read the rest of the description it still doesn't display the full description. And trust me, some of these descriptions are two sentences, not full novels. So we want to enable the full description to be viewable
