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. Rebrand Yammer

    Yammer doesn't get the credit that it deserves as a place to share knowledge and gain information from collaborating with others. It really needs a rebranding of the name. In our large corporation employees struggle to understand and realize it's potential. The name Yammer implies "to utter persistent complaints or whine or "to talk persistently or volubly and often loudly". Desperately needs a new name.

    I would like to have a setting such as Skype for Business [Start the app in the foreground] on Yammer Desktop app as well. It will be great if users could select to display Yammer whether in front of or behind of other app windows.

  4. Not show the discovery page by default when opening Yammer, but only groups and people I follow.

    People get scared by the amount of info on Yammer that is not relevant for them, but which they get to see by default. Or you should be able to block groups that are not relevant for you to not see any of their content.

  5. Refresh the Yammer UI

    Yammer user interface looks like something from 2008. Issues that we have identified: -

    The big issue we identified is the white canvas for the posts and the white background on the posts. Having a white background means that: -
    - The posts (which also have a white background) don't stand out.
    - The responses (which then have a grey background) are not logically linked to the original posts.

    Other features that are also problematic are: -
    - Yammer Groups on the sidebar - These cannot be re-ordered (even though they can be dragged giving the impression you should be…

  6. Add links to posts without displaying the WHOLE ugly link.

    I don't understand why this isn't already a feature to add a web link? Yammer already resolves the link and pulls images and title text so why not hide the ugly web link?

  7. be able to report posts to admin that breach our terms of use

    As a company that is heavily regulated we have strict guidelines about what Yammer can be used for. This enables us to ensure our customers data is managed accordingly. It's important for people to be able to quickly report any posts that breaches our terms of use. Can we please have a report a post function that allows admins/community managers to be notified of any posts that breach these terms.

  8. Make it easy to call or initiate a private chat with someone from their yammer post

    We sometimes want to call someone or initiate a private chat in Teams with someone from their Yammer post. When you hover over their name, you get their phone number, groups, and Send Message button. It would be very helpful if you added buttons for Teams Call and Teams Chat, and made their phone number a link that when clicked on initiated a phone call to that number.

    This might be complicated by only showing the buttons which will work, including Skype Call button for orgs using Skype instead of Teams, etc., but Microsoft has some really smart developers, I'm…

  12. Suppress Duplicate Outlook/Exchange Nofications within Yammer

    It seems like recently Yammer (web) has started including all outlook notifications that Outlook is already sending notifications. These are duplicative and indicate by changing the color of the Yammer IE tab that there is something for me to look at.
    Could you add an option to "Suppress Outlook Notifications".
    Note that the notifications are duplicates of what is being sent by Exchange/Outlook.
    Note that it is not adhering to the Outlook rules and sending notification that even Exchange is suppressing (Meeting Accept...).
    This increases the noise in the "signal to noise" ratio and deters usage of Yammer.
    Voice of…

  13. display photos as intented by the photographer/uploader and not cropped

    If I upload a photo that is in portrait mode, i.e. height is greater than width, the photo is cropped and made to look e.g. 3x4 no matter what height it is. Even in photo view mode it can still be cropped.

  15. Clarify group invitations

    I received an email saying "[Person] from [my organisation] has added you to [groupname]". Clicked the "GO TO GROUP" button and it gave me a page saying "This group is private. Request to join to view its messages." So am I added or not? Why do I have to request after the admin has already approved me? Either the group should let me straight in, or the invitation should make it clear that I'm merely being advised of the existence of a group that I may choose to apply for membership of.

  16. Remove Link(s) on Yammer using OpenGraph post when Yammer is on the page specified by OpenGraph

    Yammer currently doesn't nicely allow us to replace the sharepoint comments for articles.

    When using OpenGraph when users post the link and blank thumb nail is repeated for each user that comments even though they are on the page. This is disengaging as people only get to see a bunch of links with comments in between.

    When using the Modern webpart this is worse and you have to click the wepart and navigate away from the page to read the comments.

    the URL should just be metadata to consolidate the comments as a single conversation without all the wasted space…

  17. Please add notification options: either send messages instantly or as daily or weekly summary

    The amount of notifications in bigger organizations quickly gets overwhelming. So users should be able to customize notifications to their individual needs/interests to reduce the amount of notifications per day or week.

  18. option to display more than one current occupation

    Currently I work within two roles and have input four distinct roles (including previous) into my profile, but the 'info' section of my profile, under the 'work' category only displays one current role and one previous role.

    It would be useful to be able to choose which of the input roles are displayed on the profile so that they can be chosen by the account holder for their relevance to the profile.

  20. Yammer Windows App to receive push notifications

    The notifications currently for Yammer are terrible, I'm getting e-mails when I don't want e-mails. No notifications that anything has happened even though I'm running a desktop app. There should either be a proper windows 10 uwp app with this functionality or a Teams style app with their notifications which I presume is so they can support Windows 7. No more e-mails!
