Feedback by UserVoice

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. 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

    • 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…

      • 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.

        • 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.

          • 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!

            • 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?

              • 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.

                • 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.

                  • 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.

                    • 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.

                      • 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.

                        • 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…

                          • 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

                            • 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.

                                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.

                              • 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…

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

                                    • Integrated automatic URL Shortener

                                      Build an automatic URL Shortener into Yammer.
                                      There are some URLs that are very big and the truncation that happens simply is not very pealsing to the eye.

                                      Twitter does this for a reason

                                      • 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.
