I'd like Yammer to...

Improve how Sharepoint articles appear when shared in a Yammer post

Currently when we include a SharePoint news article link in a yammer post, it displays as a hyperlinked URL in a plain white box - this isn't very engaging or aesthetic. Would it be possible for the article image/thumbnail and title to embed in the Yammer post to give more context to the article the post relates to?

    Seriously, this is something that should be implemented for modern SharePoint Communication Site articles really fast. If you adopt Office 365 and present Yammer as a social component to your end users trying to tell a coherent and consistent story how information should flow in a modern way, this annoying behaviour really crushes it. It is not only about asthetics here, it is more about how the overall Intranet/publishing thing is not properly supported.

    Hopefully, this will be implemented soon as now external links are more attractive than the internal SharePoint and intranet links.

    Please tell us by when ? Have seen requests asking for this since 2015, if not earlier...

    This is a big issue for us, we have been waiting for so long and is slowing down adoption of Yammer.
    External links look good, while all Sharepoint pages look very ugly and there is no way for you to customize it.
    Please, I have seen people commenting on similar issues since 2016 and there is not a lot of improvement. I hope it comes high in the prioritization list.

    The ability to adjust the font size would be great as well. Currently the font size of the embedded feed is just too big and looks out of place with the rest of the SharePoint page.

    Hello, the lack of this feature is killing the engagement on Yammer... Please, we need this! Thank you

    An update would be helpful and we have raised this with our MS team. Their advice was user voice to make this available for our corporate clients.

    And the same for documents stored on a SharePoint site will be appreciated too...
