I'd like Yammer to...

Allow users to change order of Groups

It would be extremely helpful if we can arrange the order of the group. Individuals should be able to customize that on their own. For example for Marketing team members, they would want all the marketing groups to be at the top etc.

        How long does testing require? Anna Marie noted Sept. 23rd, 2016 to be working on tests.
        Would be definitely a well appreciated feature by almost everyone. Can't be that difficult to implement for pros like the Yammer team. Thanks.

        It's pretty clear the Yammer development teams do not really CARE what people want or need. This has been an issue for YEARS now.

        I need to be able to change the order in which Yammer lists my groups. I am not sure how Yammer is sorting them now, but it is not helpful. It is important to use tools that are helpful.

        About time this was made available.
        In the age of Social Media and the user doing what they want. THIS IS A MUST.
        It should be a very simple change.

        I see no rational in the current situation, it is totally random where the groups appear day to day.

        Please expedite this user change request! Seems a no brainer to me in order to stimulate Yammer adoption. Use case: I'm working across multiple industry groups. Now these groups are scattered randomly in my list of groups and frankly I lose interest using Yammer because I can't easily manage my information the way I want. I want to bring these industry groups together in one (private) sub group called 'industries' sort them alphabetically and be able to expand and collapse this sub group.

        For me this is also a must-have, even better would be to place groups into folders, so the groups I like to check daily are grouped in one folder

        I'm losing overview the way my 40+ groups keep jumping up and down the list. Fixing the order of groups should be a minimum requirement, and I would prefer having the option to arrange them under common headers/folders as well. Could that be arranged, please?

        It's a great idea!
        But is it possible to go further to make "files" or "category" to organize the different groups?
        Ex: Category Marketing -> Group A + Group B + Group F
        Category Extra Pro -> Group C + Group E + Group D
        And manage this by an Arrow that allowed to open or not the category and see all the groups Inside.

        This should be considered a must have feature, instead of something that's just being considered.

        The current functionality of this just more micro managing from Microsoft. Users should have the ability to set their own preferences in sorting rather than living under Nanny Microsoft's directives.

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        The fact that there is little response from MS since Sept 2016 when saying they are working on something doesn't bode well. It also could lessen anyone else voting for it a year down the track, thinking MS has abandoned it so why bother! I voted anyway!

        Hi All,
        is there any news on this concern? We would appreciate too in my company if this feature become available.Thanks

      • AnonymousAnonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Hi Anna Marie. Are you still considering? It seems to me as we are a substantial number of users who find it a great idea to be able so arrange the group order.

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Why can't we, the end users, have a choice in how we want our groups displayed. I want them sorted Alphabetically and really don't give a crap about activity.

      • Ethel AardvaardEthel Aardvaard commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Microsoft have a clever algorithm for sorting based on what they think people want, but bears no resemblance to what people actually want. Very similar to the "recently used programs" idea on the windows start menu a few versions ago, that meant icons moved randomly over time (as far as the user is concerned).
        I follow a number of Yammer groups but the most important is also the most quiet. However, Microsoft see "busy" as "important" and "quiet" as "unimportant", so the ones covering discussions around the canteen menu eclipse the ones about critical IT systems' forecast system down-time.

        It is not always clever to implement a clever algorithm, just because you can.
