Yammer

Thanks for taking the time to give us honest feedback. While many of you may have a specific feature in mind (build this!), we’d ask you to add a note about WHY. What’s the problem you’re trying to solve, what’s the task you’re trying to do. The better we understand that, the better we can make Yammer.

  1. Content Administrator Role

    I would like to see more granular security in the admin roles. In particular breaking out a content admin role and perhaps others that may be more appropriate for HR or somebody outside of IT to address.

    We have enough work that IT shouldn't need to get involved with policing if what people say is appropriate or inappropriate on the platform.

  2. 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?

  3. Allow network specific profiles

    I use Yammer both as a Microsoft employee and for a non-profit (as part of an External network). Due to limitations of mobile having only one identity, I'm forced to use my MSFT AAD across all my networks. However, my persona and role are obviously different across these networks. Allowing a different "about me" and profile picture would be helpful

  4. Have the ability to pin announcements, so users can catch up if they're away on hols

    The ability for users to have a place where they can scroll through announcements in a group. Similar to new conversation and all conversation tabs.

  5. Make Yammer a PWA and distribute it through Microsoft Store

    Yammer on Windows is only a web wrapper. It would make sense to turn Yammer into a PWA, which would then make it possible to distribute Yammer through Microsoft Store, or make it able for users to just add it as a PWA app in browsers such as Chrome and Edge.

    This would bring a lot of positive impact, like
    * True single experience across all platforms and screen resolution and ratio
    * Less code to maintain for the developers
    * Ease of managability for sysadmins - Don't have to keep a Yammer MSI in Intune up to date, just…

  6. Alert Yammer admins if a new O365 domain is added and Yammer is not in the 1-1 state

    If a new verified domain is added to the O365 tenant, the Yammer network becomes in a non 1-1 state and Office 365 Groups are not created when new Yammer groups are created.

    As an admin, I'd like to get an alert when this happens so I can take action. We have different groups managing O365 and Yammer so that's why we need this feature.

  7. create gifs featuring diverse people

    Recently, in a search, I found the only people featured in gifs were white. Not a great look for our diverse nation and those organizations seeking to represent all their staff and customers. Help!

  8. Allow me to block users from my timeline. At the moment, i am forced to read posts from people i choose not to follow and its not great.

    I am tired of reading posts from people on Yammer i choose not to follow, often not work related. At the moment, i can hide a conversation but thats time consuming as they post a lot of stuff that is not work related. On twitter and facebook you can do this, why not Yammer? I want a block feature for ones i know are a waste of time

  9. Provide the same functionality as the embedded feed for the new Yammer webpart

    The new Yammer webpart should support the same features as the embedded version eg.
    - Support clickable links
    - Support display of images
    - Show all comments, not just one
    - Like directly from the webpart
    - Display new posts immediately
    - Only go to Yammer if the user explicitly want to go there, otherwise stay in the webpart
    - Optional setting how many posts are displayed. Now it is always 4.

  11. Convert "+1" posts to Likes

    Observed on the Microsoft Yammer: long series of replies containing simply "+1". These posts should be automatically converted to a Like, and not posted as a separate message. Of course, you need to tell your user that you've done that: "Hey, I changed your +1 reply to a Like for you."

  12. Change the user friendly email "DisplayName" used in email notifications so that it is prefixed by 'Yammer - '

    As notification emails arrive now, they show the friendly display name in the format of "Lastname, Firstname (Org Info) On Yammer".

    This makes it hard (at a glance) to distinguish a Yammer email notification from an standard outlook email message from a colleague.

    Old SSN prefixed the display name of the notifications with the application followed by the user information instead of this way.

    You can process with rules, but I'd like to be able to tell at a glance if an email is Yammer related, or from the actual colleague.

  14. React to posts like on facebook.

    It would be good to be able to react to a post like on facebook.

    It would be quicker and have fewer comments making it neater instead of having to type "that's sad". So you just react to the post instead!!!

    Cheers

  15. Enable Customizable Two-Step Validation for posts to the 'All Company' group

    We'd like Yammer/Microsoft to enhance the tool so organizations & their Yammer admins can enable (if they choose) a "second-check" step for all users who attempt to post to 'All Company'.

    - Yammer admins can enable or disable this feature
    - Yammer admins can modify the "2nd check" message that would appear to end users if they attempt to post to 'All Company'. The msg appears adjacent to 'Submit' and 'Go back' buttons.

    This 2nd-check message box give our company the opportunity to give a company-designed message to educate users that they're communicate to all and aware of possible consequences…

  16. Allow the Yammer Client to Accept a Yammer URL Link or Allow the search tool to find the Yammer post by copying and pasting the Yammer URL

    When using Microsoft Teams many users will send a Yammer URL link to a Yammer post within same tenant.

    Current Behavior:
    1. Clicking the link in Microsoft Teams opens a web browser to sign into the Yammer portal. (It doesn't open Yammer client by default only a web browser)

    2. Copying and pasting the Yammer URL into the Yammer client search returns a lot of yammer content but, nothing related to the post you are looking for.

    Request: Please allow the capability for the installed Windows Yammer Client to:

  18. Group integration with O365, Outlook and Teams

    I understand that the coherent integration and interconnection of groups within Office 365 has many aspects.

    However, I would like to have this:
    - in case a quasi-fully-featured O365 group already exists (ie. has been created as a Outlook group, then a Teams team has been created based on that one, everything exists for this group exists, except Yammer)
    - it should then be possible to create a Yammer group from that group. Nothing will change actually, except that Yammer would link to the existing ressources, Sharepoint files of the group would be shareable within Yammer, etc.

    I do not…

  19. Show the badge icon if new message is posted on a joined group when using Yammer iOS app

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    iOS アプリにて参加グループへの新規投稿をバッジ表示するようにして欲しい

    Show the badge icon if new message is posted on a joined group when using Yammer iOS app
    ***************
    ■Description(内容):
    現在、iOS Yammer アプリでは参加しているグループに新規投稿があった場合、バッジで新規投稿があったことを通知表示させることができない。
    各グループに表示される新規投稿通知数やプッシュ通知ではなく、バッジ表示で新規投稿があったことがわかるよう機能追加を希望します。

    Currently in iOS Yammer app, it is not possible to show notification with a badge icon when a new message is posted to group we are joining.

    For improvement of usability, show the badge icon when a new message is posted, instead of push notification or numbers of new posts displayed on each group.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  20. Prevent user from rename hashtag

    Currently user can rename certain hashtag into whatever they want, and it will rename the old hashtag into the new one, even it's not their own post.
    It can lead us a problem.

    For an example we have hashtag #gogreen to campaign healthier living; which this hashtag has been used by thousand employees. Someone may click those hashtag, rename it into #lovewaste, and boom all hashtag #gogreen will changed into #lovewaste.

    So it will be great, if rename hashtag can be limited by admin.
