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...

    Allow to paste directly from clipboard an image coming from (example) screen clipping, instead of saving it and adding as attached file.

    • Remove "[User name] viewed an image" posts from the Recent Activity feed

      In our organisation's Yammer, there are many posts in the Recent Activity feed about specific users having viewed specific images. There should at least be a configuration option to remove these posts from the Recent Activity feed, for the following reasons:

      * These posts are not useful
      * Their presence in the Recent Activity feed causes more useful posts to become less visible
      * It is unpleasant that Yammer not only tracks which images you're viewing, but also reports it to everyone else in the organisation

      • Allow posting on behalf of / User delegation

        I some cases you don't want to post from your personal profile but from a generic/admin profile.
        Or switching between users would work too.

        • Improve Hashtags

          - When using the "Add topics" feature to add topics / hashtags you cannot use "#hashtag", but have to enter "Hashtag". This leads to us having multiple ##hashtag topics (hashtags with double hash/pound prefix). Why can't users enter the topics as they are displayed with a hash/pound sign? You also can't merge ##hashtag topics with #hashtag topics. "Topic already exists".
          - Where can I see a list of my followed topics? Why don't I have a personalized stream showing only topics I am interested in?.
          - Why can't we hide certain topics / hashtags per group? In the group "Microsoft…

          • Customize Praise icons

            It would be great if admin had the capability to customize the icons or badges used in Praise. Simply uploading our own .png files, preferably with space to label or title them, would be very valuable so that we might align this function with our core values.

                  It’s unlikely that we’ll build this. We believe that users should be able to edit their own profile, and recognize that people have other uses for it, like letting teammates know when they’re going to be out of office by making changes to their name.

                • Allow to preform advanced search

                  Some basic advanced search options are not available:
                  a. Search for "exact search string"
                  b. search for term1 AND term2, term1 OR term2
                  c. search for items created in this time range
                  d. search term1 but exclude -term2
                  e. Search in items posted by PersonX
                  etc.
                  I know that some might be accessed in a way, but I struggle a lot to find what I need too many times.

                    • Security in "All company group"

                      Yammer could offer the ability to be able to limit on an Admin level who is able to post to the “All Company” feed or the ability to hide or delete this group.

                      Also, offer the posibility of security in "All company group" for a better management. For example:

                      1. Remove or hide the “All company” group?
                      2. Limit people who are writing in “All company” group?
                      3. Restrict comments posting and instead allow to use the “Like” feature?

                        Thanks for your insight, this is helpful. Our concern with is that for a lot of companies, All Company is a useful place to discussion. If you’re comfortable sharing, how large is your network? We’re wondering if size of a network is a factor in whether All Company can be productive or not.

                        Hi team,

                        within Yammer it's possible to change the NAME of an external network. Fine, but unfortunately the name after the last / of the URL and the email-address is not changed.
                        The change is even not possible by creating a O365 support ticket and requesting this from the support team.
                        My request is, that with name change of an external network the URL-name (after the slash /) and the email-adress should be changed as well (after checking, that the name is not used by other customers of course! ;-))

                        Thank you very much for thinking about this request.

                        Kind…

                        • Allow me to refer to for example John as opposed to John Smith in a post

                          When I reply to or refer to John Smith and Susan Douglas for example I would like to refer to John and Susan on my post as these are colleagues and I know them so to use full name on the test looks unusual. This can be done in Facebook messaging where the full name is printed on the message but I can delete the surname.

                          • Post automatic birthday messages congratulating people on their birthday.

                            We're trying to drive up engagement with Yammer, and having Yammer post automatic birthday messages would be a great to get people to communicate with each-other. It's very effective in Facebook, and I often see people reconnecting because one of them has been alerted to the other's birthday. Yammer knows people's birthdays. Just give us some basic configuration options (eg, whether we want it switched on, what message we want sent etc.).

                              The chat dissappeared and is replaced by private messages and that is a horrible idea.

                              I've read the feature https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Yammer-Blog/Improvements-to-the-Private-Messaging-Experience-in-Yammer/ba-p/33161 and i don't think this change is good. A private message funcionality is not the same as a chat and at my work we find the chat a very useful tool.

                              • Officially deprecate Yammer API since it’s no longer supported

                                Yammer REST API works most of the times, not always. Some random block of messages from our network are not returned when calling Yammer API.

                                I have opened 2 tickets with Microsoft. We have been able to prove to Microsoft that Yammer API (messages.json and messages/in_group/:group_id.json) is not returning block of messages in its response.

                                Using Yammer Data Export and Yammer UI, Microsoft team verified that the messages do indeed exist in our network, its a public Yammer group to which the user has access.

                                Microsoft Support and Yammer Product Group(PG) acknowledge that Yammer REST API does not work as…

                                  The Yammer REST API was originally built for use with Yammer’s native clients and therefore has certain limitations. Depending on your use case, a combination of the REST API and the data export API will often be able to solve the issues you are facing.
                                  Additionally, there are currently discussions ongoing about the next generation of the Yammer API as a replacement of the v1 API that is documented on developer.yammer.com. In the meantime, we do not plan to remove the documentation of the API since it is still supported and the only supported way for third party clients to interact with the Yammer service.
                                  For any more specific questions, please continue to work with support.

                                  • Integrate with OneNote to provide commenting against Wiki Pages

                                    OneNote is a pretty decent in most features compared to Confluence, but misses massively on having the ability to have a conversation about a page. Please integrate Yammer into OneNote so we can create conversations related to pages.

                                    • Redesign the "Like" option to a Reaction option

                                      "Like" has always been a useful way of reinforcing someone's post or reply, but it's always been restrictive. You might very deeply agree with something someone has said, but it may not be the right reaction to "like" it. - eg. "After 30 fantastic years of working with you all, I'm sad to say that I'm leaving." - LIKE.

                                      Change LIKE to REACTION and offer a range of choices:
                                      - Like, Love, Funny, Surprise, Sad, Upset etc. And use emojis to express them.

                                      In terms of reporting, instead for saying 15 people liked this, you could say 15 people reacted…

                                        • I would like to be able to post as a Group rather than just an Individual

                                          Rather than only posting as an individual, it would be really useful to be able to post as a group so that viewers see a post from a team rather than an individual. Quite often an individual has to post on behalf of their team, but this does not get reflected in the posts, as everyone then needs to follow than person to view the conversation. Also if that person is not available then another member of the group cannot continue and respond on behalf of the group.
