Allow posting on behalf of / User delegation
I some cases you don't want to post from your personal profile but from a generic/admin profile.
Or switching between users would work too.
We’re having discussions around this, but it isn’t currently a top priority to decide whether or not we will build this.
Now, the feature is live!

I think this is already live in the new Yammer. When I click on the gear button in the top right corner I see the user delegation settings.

Any update on this feature, we are moving from Dynamic Signal to Yammer and this is a key feature requested by our business partners.
Just looking for an update to this? We want to prevent our users sharing passwords just so they can post on Yammer.
As of 1/4/21, this still shows as "We're considering this" but there's a roadmap entry indicating a January 2021 release. Can we get more information on what will be released? How will users grant/revoke delegation? How will a delegate use this access?

any updates on this feature. It would be very useful! We see this as a need at our company to allow communications professionals to help shadow or ghost write posts for senior executives, as this happens frequently.

There are appropriate instances for using the “post-on-behalf-of” feature, but you do have to have some ground rules. Here’s where you should draw the line: https://www.talksocialtome.com/post-on-behalf-of-yammer/?utm_source=Yammer%20User%20Voice

find my interview with Melanie Hohertz in my podcast here, she has also published excellent thoughts https://ragnarheil.de/yammer-roadmap-post-on-behalf-of-someone-else-interview-with-melanie-hohertz-avanade/
I would say : YES! GOOD IDEA ! As then I would be able to post messages on behalf of my boss !

We need this function from a central communications perspective. Any update?

any update on this
I'd like to also share that, because Yammer doesn't parse copied text correctly, you can't even provide a post to someone. They always have to do user tags and topics themselves. No one can explain why I should be spending hours of my life teaching a senior executive something the platform should just do itself.
It's the future and this multi-billion-dollar company can't pull off this simple task
Any updates on this since 2017?

Still thinking about it more than 2.5 years later?
