I'd like Yammer to...

Support rich text formatting in Yammer posts

Let me use bold/italics and simple bullet points to make Yammer posts easier to read.

        Since this request in 2016, it's only going to take three years to add a user-expected feature that MS Teams had in it since v1. Thanks for finally agreeing it's an important feature.

        Yes please. If it can be done on the 'announcement' post type it can't be that hard to do on a standard post, surely?

        > We’re currently looking to learn about text formatting in Yammer and your other work tools. Please fill out the following survey to help us design this feature request: bit.ly/2m4Zj7I

        I have to say, Microsoft's answers to feature requests like this say a a lot more about the inner workings of Microsoft and hardly anything about the feature being requested, neither do they seem to have much (or any) understanding of the product or feature their users are requesting.

        Why even have uservoice, when you barely implement any feature requests?

        Either your team consists out of 10 people or you just pretend to care.

        Although I have to admit, that this does not concern only Yammer, but the whole Microsoft 365 Suite. I have seen so many requests for even the simpliest and most logical features, but nope, Microsoft no care.

        Is this still in works? It is really surprising that it has not been added yet. Some kind of rich-text support should be a standard feature for any collaboration platform. Especially one with the Microsoft backing.

        We implemented MS Flow: Rss news -> Yammer posts. Downside is that RSS news won't show correctly in Yammer. We see HTML code like <img> <br> etc. Please add HTML / rich text functionality to Yammer!

        @Emma Beede - Can we get a status update (it's been 19 months since your last status update)?

        Yeah, I know, @mention is not supported here (small dig, I couldn't resist). ;)

      • Michael commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Offering rich-text in Sharepoint lists and offering flows to post in yammer automatically means to raise manual work. So please add simple things like rich-text to yammer and all other 365 apps!

      • Roy Faltesek commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Please make Yammer posts consistent with Teams, where the first post of a conversation can have a subject, which is big and bold, then normal rich text in the body. And subsequent posts in that thread have normal rich text.

      • Amanda commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Yes please. I'd like to communicate more clearly using some simple formatting.

      • jim commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        new customer trying to use Yammer. Big disappointment we can't bold. Would love a communication o potential timing if it is in the plans.

      • Ruth Cheesley commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        It would be great to have an update on the status for this popular request seeing as the last update was so long ago!

        I am really looking for this feature which will should allow developers to post RICH html to yammer through API.

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I originally created an elaborate post all sorts of formatting with the SP 2010 post options and was very disappointed by the outcome of my post. I had to edit it to be all plain and not as exciting as I had wanted.

        Microsoft - you said you were planning to build this - back in March 2017 - a year later and it's still not available? When will this be delivered?

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Making it possible to format text will really help to enhance the clarity of announcements and ideas shared on Yammer at my workplace. A lot of confusion is being caused by the lack of this functionality.
