Improved Notifications Settings
Improved Notifications Settings:
I would like a lot more control and options for notifications. I would like the option to choose an email and/or desktop and/or push notification and I'd like these options to be available to all the current notification options as well as the new options I'm suggesting below. (When I say push, I mean just a notification in the notification area of the site/app in the main menu)
I would also like the option to choose to be notified for the following:
- A user I follow. When on a user's profile, next to the follow button please add an option to turn on or off notification when they post - similar to youtube.
- Topics I'm following. On the topic's page next to the following button add an on/off notification button.
- Would like a similar notifications button added next to the join/joined button under groups rather than having to go to the setting menu under my profile.
Thank you, this is helpful insight! We’re not investing in this right now, but your feedback is appreciated as we think about the future of notifications.

Having the ability to get notified when people I follow post would be invaluable - after all, I've followed them for a reason!
Whithout the ability to activate/deactivate mail notifications for followed topics, their functionality is severely limited.
We would like to have a multi-department yammer group where you can post to many different topics. People subscribe to their topics of interest, but currently then they have to actively look for those posts. It would be a vast improvement if users could get a notification whenever a new post in a followed topic is published.

it would be a good idea to not have any notification set as a default and user can choose what notification they need/require.
Would be a GREAT improvement if I could "subscribe" to specific topics/tags by having a notification toggle for those. Would result in less notifications (compared to group notifications) and at the same time more focused and targeted info about new posts I am really interested in.
Whats the whole purpose of following people or topics when you cannot (de-)activate notifications for these. I fully support this request as it helps getting more relevant data from Yammer!

Please add this basic function and make it part of our Yammer. It allows to reduce Spam and is very helpfull :-(

I would like to ask the Research Team to strongly invest in upgrading notifications. Today it is the option between beeing spammed and nothing at all. I like especially Skots proposals no. 1 & 2.

I would like to be able to turn off the Bell notification that alerts me when someone post who hasn't posted a while. And quite active on Yammer and I get lots of notifications. Notifications about someone posting clog up my notification feed and distract me from the notifications I really care about.

I think you should be investing on this particularly for followed Topics otherwise it's not in keeping with general public's follow social feature functionality that users have become accustomed to. At the moment follow topic works more like 'Book Mark' or 'Favourite'

yammer notifications that we have subscribed need to come into the ACTION CENTER of windows 10

I agree with Skot that it would be helpful to have more notification settings options within the Yammer platform as well. For example, a notification about wanting to join a group you administer shouldn't get the same weight as someone voted on your poll.
Would be nice to disable poll notifications. Some polls may be more strategic and time sensitive; many do not warrant real-time notifications. (Emma or other admin: If you would like me to post this as a new idea in UV since it is nichier just let me know. Thanks!)
