Feedback by UserVoice

Yammer

Update: Microsoft will be moving away from UserVoice sites on a product-by-product basis throughout the 2021 calendar year. We will leverage 1st party solutions for customer feedback. Learn more.

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. I would like a feed of just the groups I've joined and people I follow.

    I believe the "Following" tab used to do this, but now it's just conversations I follow. I have no interest in clicking group to group, I want to get all my updates in a single feed with no extra noise.

    We have read your feedback on the request for feed of groups you have joined and people you follow.
    [EDIT] Clarification on Following Feed related to earlier comment: The following feed does not show conversations from your groups.
    We had made improvements to the following feed in Yammer in February earlier this year to bring more focus to people and topics on Yammer. The improvements were focused on helping surface content from people, topics and files you follow. To help surface that content we no longer show conversations from your groups in the following feed. Groups in the left nav will continue to show indicators for new content you have not seen. For more details refer to the Message Center post : 26543

  2. Display posts chronologically

    Because posts are not chronologically displayed, it is almost impossible to stay informed of the latest & most relevant posts. In a business setting, no one cares if a picture or item was "Liked" multiple times unless they are the poster. I find I am not seeing new information because my feed prioritizes old "popular" posts. I had a new employee join Yammer on October 19th and I did not get the "Welcome her" message until today (13 days later!). Not acceptable in a business setting.

    Thanks for the feedback! It’s helpful to hear about how you’re using Yammer and your expectations for it. We find that most of our users use their groups to stay up to date on important work conversations (conversations are displayed by most recent reply there), and use their home discovery feed for discovering things they wouldn’t otherwise see. We feel that it’s important for you to discover content that might be relevant, so we use several factors including recency and popularity to show you what you might like to see. Sorry we missed the mark on this one, and thanks for sharing the feedback.

  3. Allow dark mode on Yammer desktop application

    Just like how Microsoft Teams have different themes including the dark mode, it would be convenient to have dark mode on Yammer Desktop application as well.

  4. Enable Customizable Two-Step Validation for posts to the 'All Company' group

    We'd like Yammer/Microsoft to enhance the tool so organizations & their Yammer admins can enable (if they choose) a "second-check" step for all users who attempt to post to 'All Company'.


    • Yammer admins can enable or disable this feature

    • Yammer admins can modify the "2nd check" message that would appear to end users if they attempt to post to 'All Company'. The msg appears adjacent to 'Submit' and 'Go back' buttons.

    This 2nd-check message box give our company the opportunity to give a company-designed message to educate users that they're communicate to all and aware of possible consequences of doing…

    Thanks for the feedback! We probably wouldn’t build a check-point system for posting, but we’re considering ways we can improve and make All Company less noisy.

  5. Please add a weekly notification option to Yammer

    Currently Yammer only allows daily notification option. After a while, users ignore Yammer daily notifications because it turns into a spam for them. Please add a weekly digest option to Yammer notifications setting so that users who still want to get notifications can receive less but more organized updates from their groups and we wouldn't lose these users by making Yammer more friendly. Thank you!

  6. Nested Groups/ Subgroups

    So, three other individuals all posted about the possibility of a hierarchy structure for groups in August of last year. One was told it would never be implemented and the other two were told it would be considered.

    It would be optimal if the ability to create subgroups was possible as my company wishes to create a technical support forum of sorts that would require some general structure. Tagging related groups in the right panel isn't what we are looking for. If someone could provide an update about the possibility of this feature being added, that would be wonderful. Thank…

    Thanks for your feedback. We’re not actively considering this, so there are no plans to build it. I won’t say that we’ll never consider it – we’re always revisiting ideas on how we can improve the product. Hope that helps.

  7. allow custom "Group Patterns"

    The "Group Patterns" available aren't suitable for business and are a bit silly. Please allow us to upload our own image or just disable the patterns.

  8. be able to access my bookmarked posts on the mobile app

    It doesn't seem to make a whole lot of sense that I can't check my bookmarked posts on the mobile app.

    A lot of our workers are away from their desks a lot throughout the day. They 'expect' to be able to bookmark posts so that they can read them when they have the time. More often than not its on their commute to/from work, at lunch or even at home on the couch.

    I've seen responses to similar posts from early last year. Is there a plan to implement this feature for mobile?

    Thanks for the feedback! We don’t have any current plans to do this, but we do have a bunch of other improvements coming to mobile soon.

  9. Untag someone from a post

    Provide the ability to remove someone from a post. I accidentally tagged the wrong person and realized it after I added the post. I was unable to remove the wrong person and could only add a new person.

    Thanks for the feedback! This is a little complicated for us to do from an engineering perspective, and it’s not a top priority right now, but we appreciate the insight that it’s been a painpoint for you.

    While we don’t current plans to build this in the product, you can insert emojis by using a keyboard shortcut:

    Mac: Control + Command + Space
    Windows 10: Win + period (.) or Win + semicolon (;)

    The emoji keyboard will pop up and you can select which emoji you’d like to use. Hope that’s helpful!

  11. Start up minimized (like Skype does)

    Include an option for the Yammer app to start minimized to the system tray and pop up notifications. Skype has such an option. It leaves the desktop less cluttered on startup.

  12. Give quick access to favorites

    When using favorites to mark a post we need/want to come back on user have to go on his profile to get access to favorites. As favorites are meant to be really quick (no need to search to find) it would be usefull to get a "Favorites"icon on the top left of yammer (group with "Home" "Mailbox" and "Notifications

  13. Let users being able to publish as a shared mailbox or generic name

    I think it would be a good feature if users could publish as themself or a shared mailbox they have access too.

    Obviously yammer administrators should have the right to authorize or disable this feature

  14. Provide a mechanism to find posts that I've liked.

    There are times I can recall liking a post, but find it difficult to find that post again. It would be good if I could find posts that I've liked in a similar way that I can find conversations that I've replied to. This has been requested by a couple of other uses on our Yammer too.

  15. 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 Technologies" I might…

  16. Based on text analysis, I'd like a visual indicator (and filtering functions) showing when a post is entirely congratulatory.

    While many people like to read such posts, they don't really add all that much functionality or new information to discussions; it'd be useful to be able to filter them out or at least have them marked in some way before viewing/loading the full text. Presumably direct responses to viewers' own posts would be exempted by default as people are more likely to want to read those regardless.

    Add an optional moderation feature, where admins would have to approve messages posted to groups before they are visible.

  18. Give admins the possibility of disabling comments for certain/all announcements and posts

    Hi,

    It is very annoying when people start giving their 2 cents for announcements done by expert teams. I understand yammer is a site for collaboration and sharing of info but there are times that pure information needs to be shared to the general public.

    Give admins the possibility of disabling comments for certain/all announcements/posts

    Thanks for your feedback! We are unlikely to build this, as it’s part of our mission to empower every employee, which means giving them a voice. However, we understand the need to share official communications and are exploring ways we can help those messages stand out more.

  19. Admins to approve Yammer Groups.

    Now users can make there own groups.

  20. Create a shortcut to the "Bookmarks" section int he left side panel, next to "Home", "Inbox" & "Notifications"

    Currently, in order to review your bookmarked posts, you have to:
    1.- Click the "Setting & More" gear icon
    2.- Click on your name
    3.- Select "Bookmarks"

    The whole point of bookmarking a post is to be able to access it in an easy manner, so why not adding a direct link to the "Bookmarks" section in the main site, in the left hand side panel?
