Reduce group overlap through display of similar names during naming
When people create a group, they type in a name, and Yammer searches for an exact match.
Would it be too hard to have Yammer display names (or even brief info about) similar group names that already exist?
For example, if I type "tax," show me the list of six other groups with "tax" in the name; and ideally, how many members each group has.
I hope this might reduce the number of groups created that overlap and/or have very similar (but not identical) names.
While we’ve tried similar ideas in the past without success, we are currently considering another feature test for this idea.
