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. allow users to cancel join requests to private groups.

    It would be nice if you can cancel join requests to private groups. It's annoying to have groups show up in the list on the left hand side even though you have not been approved yet. Maybe it would also be good if the group did not apear in your list of groups until your join request is approved.

    • 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.

      • Remove double hashtags from topics

        If users add a topic and use #topicname, Yammer will post that topic as ##topicname instead of just #topicname. User behaviour is so used to using a hash at the start of the topic from consumer social networks, so it would make sense to just remove the double hashes, and add the single hash if the user didn't add it (as per current).

        • Get the possibility to have or not O365 resources when creating a Yammer group,

          We are testing the integration of O365 Groups on Yammer.
          Is it possible to choose if we want these resources (or not) when creating the Yammer group.

          • Navigate user to specific group while logging-in

            Currently, when a user logs in to Yammer, they will be navigated to default 'All Company' group. It would be nice if we can have a setting to specify, to which group the user should be navigated by default, while logging in.

              Display a Fully Functional Tag (Topic) Cloud

              A fully functional, and easily discovered, 'tag' cloud would really enhance the user's experience in discoverability.

              Topics are highly underused and relatively difficult to discover. Even the Topic list page does not expose usage (counts). Folks can't easily determine what tags (topics) are currently in use in order to locate the associated postings.

              • 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.

                • I would like to search a topic directly in a group.

                  Today we just are able to search key words and they are not classified by date

                      Ability to have users vote on a poll and group admins (or designated user) see who voted for what. We have multiple uses where we are asking a preference on something and to follow up on it we need to know who those people are.

                      • not send me an email every time someone joins Yammer. We have 4000-5000 employees. IT IS A PAIN deleting these email notices.

                        Need to be able to stop receiving emails fter someone in company joins Yammer. This is essentially spam IMO

                        • 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.

                          • improve the incident along with an error while editing the Excel files on Office Online.

                            When it comes to the uploaded Office document, I would like to share the following incident among you. When I edited on Office Online the Excel files once updated to Yammer and performed "Save As",
                            I found the error below shown.

                            The error statement:
                            "Can't Save Workbook"
                            "Please try again in a little while."

                            As I mention the above error on the screen, it seemes the "Save As" doesn't function at this point and thus would you please improve the incident? Thank you very much for your understanding the circumstance.

                            Please also refer to the relevant URL below.

                            • "Upload a New Version" for office docs

                              "Upload a New Version" is great. Unfortunately, according to support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2834653, "The option doesn't apply to Word, Excel, or PowerPoint documents." Yes, these files are editable online, but Office Online does not have the full functionality, and is laggy at times. I have some complex files that are only editable with the full functionality of Office.

                              • Please don't remove the "hide this conversation" option

                                Yammer has become unusable to me since removing the "hide this conversation" option. Typically I scan the new posts for conversations that are relevant to me, and close out things that I don't ever need to see again by hiding them. Now, every time a new comment is posted, the conversation reappears as "new" but when I read the conversation, it's just a reply. Sometimes that's as trivial as someone saying "Thanks for posting this."
                                I don't need to see that. If people aren't using the "hide" feature, maybe it's because it's hard to discover. If nothing else, I'd like…

                                • Allow admins to export a group members list

                                  Allow admins to export a group members list via the group settings, and highlight which members are admins. This can be useful when a group is changing and its membership needs top be reviewed, and also if a group is closing in favour of using another group. The group members could be invited to the other group by exporting them into a csv and then uploading them into the other group.

                                  • show trending hashtags in my network and groups

                                    one of the huge value-adds for an enterprise social network is discovery of what others are doing and connecting with new people across the enterprise on topics you care about. Adding a layer of recently used, top tags, or trending tags, gives yammer users a sense of what is important to the community and participate in active conversations. This would also be valuable to a yammer group in quickly identifying what the group talks about, who experts are, and what this group cares about most.

                                    • Close or Lock a conversation thread

                                      The ability to lock or close a thread to prevent additional comments would be very useful.

                                      It is not always desired to delete a thread as there could be a closing comment that remains a useful reference point.

                                        • Let users choose which sharepoint site/group to connect in stead of creating a new one

                                          When we create a new Yammer Group, a associated O365 Group is created. But if we already have a SharePoint site, we don't want a new location for files. That conflicts with our settings for retention, metadata, IRM etcetera.
