I'd like Yammer to...

Edit All Company description

Please allow us to edit the description of the All Company feed. The current text suggests its the "go to place" for posting when really we want to encourage the use of Yammer groups. The All Company feed should be reserved for content that is truly for "ALL" the company! We're tackling this through education too but changing the description would be a quick win!

    We’ll send you updates on this idea

    We plan to build this  ·  AdminEmma Beede (Admin, Yammer) responded  · 

    We understand how important it is to build this – not being able to brand Yammer is a significant pain point that we’ve heard, and takes away from making Yammer an “official” tool. We plan to make the name, avatar, and description of All Company customizable, but there is significant engineering work that needs to happen before we can support it. We are working towards connecting All Company to be an Office 365 group. This requires significant work due to it’s size and because it automatically includes everyone in the company. Once this work is done, the All Company group will then be customizable similar to other groups.

    Unfortunately, there are no quick fixes for this in the meantime – due to the fact that All Company was not engineered the same as other Yammer groups, it’s not as simple as revealing functionality to edit. We understand the pain point, and look forward to delivering this functionality in the future.

        I think it's time for an update? Our internal comms department thinks about looking elsewhere because of a lack of branding control.

        Unable to upload company logo or change the color of the theme. Yammer really needs a update and add different features. It is extremely outdated compared to facebook, linkedin or other social network platforms.

        We struggle daily with keeping the All Company group focused on company business! Without being able to add our company logo, or description, many new to business ESNs think its "Facebook for work" and post Happy Friday, Hello World, Joke of the Day posts - we actually have groups for those so we can keep All Co clear for business as leaders pop in and take what they see in a few seconds as the pulse of the community - and it's incorrect because we struggle to control it! HELP!

        Hi, change the logo and give the identity of our company to the "ALL COMPANY group", would be a must, this space is used for the area of communication to post the information that is for the interest of the staff and some of them only have access trougth the cellphone, we need something easy to check and identify as ours.

        It has long been an issue that we cannot use our company logo in the All Company group, or edit the description for the ONLY default group on the platform. Seems like a no brainer...
