Definitely need Rich Text formatting options across all kinds of posts in Yammer.
Not every post is an announcement and currently announcement is the only way to have rich text in the post!.

When oh when oh when is this coming? Is there any news on a potential build timeline for this?
Yes please! Any update on where this is up to?
Need this please :)
Any reason, Microsoft Teams supports this and Microsoft Yammer does not?

+1 for Markdown support!
Even just being able to use the most basic html markup "<i>italic</i>" and "<b>bold</b>" and "<u>underline</u>" and href would be a huge improvement.

The only workaround right now is to use announcements. I'm really disappointed that this feature request is still not fulfilled.
👍 for Markdown support!
sorry to say, it's totally disaster do not have ANY kind of formatting in corporate level collaboration tool.
Is there an update on when this functionality will be operational?
Please support the following formatting options in Yammer
- Must haves: bold and italic, bullet points and numbered lists, hyperlinks.
- Should haves: standard WYSIWYG formatting options.
It's 2018! When can we expect either markdown support or basic formatting options in Yammer?

Just started using Yammer.
Without realizing the limitations of Yammer, I'd drafted my first posting in Outlook, including some basic text formatting (nothing fancy - just bold and underline), hyperlinks (very important), and a few inserted jpg images to help people navigate the hyperlinks.
When I copy-pasted my Outlook message into Yammer I was surprised and dismayed to see that everything had been converted into plain text: URLs were listed as text but did not function as hyperlinks; embedded images simply disappeared; all formatting was gone. Unfortunately, the images and hyperlinks were critical to the content of the post.
Rich text is pretty basic functionality for any desktop app these days. Why not Yammer? Users have been asking for this since August 2016. Yammer should at least have the same functionality as Outlook.
emails should come in as they look in outlook, I want to post the nice layout I have in my email

All standard formatting options would really help with using Yammer for team discussions including hyperlinks, bold, italic, underline, coloured text, and highlight colours. I would also love to use emoji's if possible, but that's the least important feature wanted.

Rich text formatting is much needed in posting updates as we cannot use the announcement feature all the time just to make text formatting.
Please update this feature soon.

Rich text formatting would probably tip our evaluation from Workplace to Yammer.
This would be seen as a huge product enhancement and sway a few more people to use Yammer in place of competitors. Hope this is happening soon!

as many have said, better would be to add markdown support
