I'd like Yammer to...

Inserting links with exotic protocols such as OneNote

When inserting a link into Yammer, be it in the group descriptions, threads or notes, Yammer automatically affixes seemingly malformed URLs a proper protocol, e.g. changes add http in front of the address. This means that it is not possible to link to a OneNote article and have it open in OneNote. OneNote uses the protocol prefix "onenote:" which Yammer doesn't know.

It can open a OneNote article in the web view, of course, but that has an entirely different level of functionality.

    We have lots of Lotus Notes Applications in our organization, so it is a pity that the notes:// links do not work in Yammer

    We still have many Lotus Notes applications, so we miss the ability
    to use notes://... link format.

    This could also make it possible to link to an old Lotus Notes database that use the format notes://045geitgdapp001.velux.org/Global/All/VELWORD.NSF
