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.

  1. Yammer Communities app in Teams to show new notifications inside Teams

    It would be great if the Yammer Communities app in Teams could show notifications inside Teams as well so you know when something new have happened.

  2. reference the large community banner image rather than the small thumbnail in "Discover communities"

    Under Discover Communities > All Communities

    The new Yammer Experience is using the wrong graphic... it should be the big community banner rather than the little square thumbnail.

  4. Allow users to change order of Groups

    It would be extremely helpful if we can arrange the order of the group. Individuals should be able to customize that on their own. For example for Marketing team members, they would want all the marketing groups to be at the top etc.

  5. 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.

  6. Allow the admin to restrict adding GIF files when posting a message to Yammer.

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):GIF の利用を制限したい

    Allow the admin to restrict adding GIF files when posting a message to Yammer.


    ■Description(内容):
    Yammer の投稿時の GIF の追加機能を Microsoft Teams のように管理者側で制限できるようにしたい。

    For the ease of management, I hope the feature will be allowed to restrict adding GIF effect when posting a message to Yammer by the admin as same as Microsoft Teams feature.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  7. 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…

  10. Enable inline images

    There is an inability to add images inline with the text of a post; they are all bunched together at the end of the post. This means people reading posts that refer to multiple images don't know which image is being referred to as they read the post, or the author has to write 'refer fig.1; refer fig.2' and so on.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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).

  15. Improved Reporting

    We have a business need we cannot cover (report request from the Office of the CEO):
    Which are the countries/ functions who have the highest number of employees in Yammer,
    What is the most active or numerous organizational layer/ function/ work stream
    Any adoption rate (how many people have joined the past months, year, etc);
    Ability to report on existing groups, group owners, related country, last edit date, statistics for the last 12 months showing – members, posts, likes, replies, visits, attached documents, storage consumed

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  19. Enable Yammer admin to create additional taxonomy for groups (for us department and country) - then we can easy report on that data

    We cannot understand which department is active and which needs more emphiasis to start using Yammer.
    We need to differentiate between groups, based on taxonomy data mandatory selected per group
    For example this can be department - like Commercial, Finance, HR, etc or country - relvant for multinational companies
    Today we have to read every groups and try to guess by its name which area or country it is relevant to
