        We need formatting in Yammer. Bullets, bold, indent. This is such a limitation. I am trying to get my team off of Facebook Workplace and Slack into a common space where we can all talk together, but the Yammer (and sharepoint/O365) are sure not making that task easy!

        You don't need a survey and you don't need to research :-). Just ask your programmers what they need to use Yammer for sharing code snippets and for discussing technical issues. Markdown would be fine.

        Please add markdown formatting. Would be very nice to post code snippets properly formatted.

        Hi, does your work on text formating include the possibility of use emoticons? :)

        Other microsoft products such as TFS support MarkDown....just add MarkDown support to Yammer...simple!

        We need bullet points, and hyperlinks. Given it's already available in the announcement, this shouldnt be a hard thing to implement.

        Looking for the ability to underline text in an Announcement. This would be a good addition to the current ability to bold or italicize text.

        Adding Markdown support would solve this and many other communications deficits without having to reinvent the wheel.

        When is this going to be implemented? It's a core feature with what Yammer is promising. Seems formatting has been a rather desired feature for a long time.

        I filled out the survey, but messages change all the time, so kind of hard to provide a true example.

        Standard "MS Word like " Formatting would be ideal: Colors, underline, fonts, indents, outdents, hyperlinks, MS teams provides some great features and good organization, but it limits itself to how many people can be part of a team. Yammer does not which is great, but Yammer is so limited that messages are lost and key information is hard to find.

        Markdown as in so many other tools would be great. WYSIWYG does not necessarily have to be (it's IMHO overrated ;-)).

        Also ability to use hyperlinked words in posts would be good, so we would not need to post the whole URL. Thanks.
