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. Be able to select the Yammer network when sharing content to Yammer from iOS

    When I try to share something (a web page, a video, etc) to Yammer with my iOS device (iPhone or iPad) by using the standard share icon, the feature only make me select one of the groups of the last Yammer network I previously used. I'm not able to change the network. This means that if I previously used an external network, I'm not able to share content into the home network unless I open the mobile app, change the network and repeat the share steps. This is very annoying, and many times the outcome is that content will not…

  3. Can user have a clean dispaly without setting icon in the left or right side?

    maybe you can set a mode that only posts are displayed and spotlighted.Because sometimes we need to annouce something important and want to pin it always at the top of this webpage.

  4. have away mesages

    I would love to have an "away message" for private messages to use in the same manner you would use your "out of office" auto response in email.

    When I am off for the day and a co-worker sends me a private message, they have no way of knowing that I am out.
    Thank you for considering this!

  5. Surface Go touch keyboard not well supported by Yammer app

    On this device, the Windows yammer app doesn't pop up the touch keyboard when you tap in a text field like in other apps. Eg creating a reply or typing a search term.

    It also doesn't display word suggestions as you type.

  6. Enrich group insights reports with social performance indicators

    As group owner I would like to see statistics for
    - Av. Time to first reply
    - Count of uncommented/-liked Posts
    - Rate between posts with responses and posts without
    - Rate between active/inactive group members

    This can motivate the owner to invest into the social experience of the group.

  7. provide a 'stop poll' option - I've just read up on how to do this from 2016 and still it's not an option, can this be brought in please?

    Lots of requests around polls - There needs to be an option to close a poll - this doesn't look as if it is being considered by Yammer.

  8. banner

    Allow to upload visual banners for each group - but esp. the All Company group for internal communication purposes. Allowing to put focus on company wide important messages and crisis messages whenever needed.

  11. View who voted on the poll

    At the time being we can only view the percentage. Would be good to see who voted.

  12. User ability to modify view for browsing all groups

    When browsing groups, the icons take up a lot of space and only provides a handful of a results. The ability to customize this view for users to see more results would be ideal. Such as smaller icons, list format, etc...

  13. Add Preview Support for More Document Types

    My team posts a few different types of standard document formats, namely a lot of XML. XML is pretty basic. . . but Yammer doesn't support previewing it. It would be nice if there were more documents supported so that I didn't have to download the XML documents everytime I wanted to quickly glance at one that has been attached to a post.

  14. 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.

  15. Provide granular control over muting groups, people, hashtags, etc

    I'd like the ability to mute, well, lots of things, really. There's so much clutter - I'd rather not use Yammer at all, if it weren't for the fact that it's how my company communicates most things. Providing the ability to mute any number of different parameters, at the very least keywords, would go a long way to making Yammer a much more productive tool.

  18. Add Group Membership to Insights

    Please add the group membership at each data point (day, month, year) to the excel extract of Group Insights. This allows admins to normalize the data and analyze the data better. A falling or rising count of posts etc might be matched by the changes in group membership itself.

  19. allow the admin to change the format of the auto generated message using different placeholder

    the way Yammer build the message is a little bit odd it uses displayname and deduct the name instead of using the firstname field.

  20. User-level read only capability

    Re-posting a closed topic. I think MSFT is missing an opportunity by not allowing this. For example, allowing the ability to set all contractors to read only, or certain regions due to laws in that region governing digital content. Another reason is to temporarily suspend an account (not block them) from posting due to violation of policy. There are dozens of valid business reasons to allow people to read but not post at either a group or user level. The alternative is to write custom scheduled jobs that delete posts via the API.
