Feedback by UserVoice

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. Identify admin

    Uniquely identify posters of a group that are admins.

    TL:DR
    We've been asked if there is a way to identify official posters or approved admins on a Yammer group and/or post by adding a unique icon to the poster's avatar. The issue came up in a particular internal group we have with 168 members but followers of the group don't know if the information being shared is from a group admin or not.

    • Reinstate yammer notifier means I know when messages have come in. I tried the desktop app and it says it doesn't recognise my account

      Reinstate the yammer notifier as it was really useful. The desktop app doesn't recognise my user account so I now have no quick and easy way of knowing when new items are poted by my associates.
      Why do IT companies keep removing the simple but effective tools when they update (not upgrade) their software??

      • No notifications on e-mail for new activity in posts I have "liked"

        I would like to not get notified when there is new activity in a post I have liked. I like the idea of clicking like on a post, but I then tend to receive multiple e-mails telling me that someone have commented on the post (typically "Tim commented on the post you liked"; "Congrats John!"). This is very annoying, and I do not want my Inbox to be cluttered by e-mails with little relevance. So unfortunately I refrain from clicking like on posts to avoid the frequent notifications. This is not good as I think a well written or important…

        • From a Yammer group share a discussion to other yammer groups and keep responses in the same thread

          Does anyone know if this functionality can be customized in Yammer?

          Many thanks for your responses

          • Allow hashtag linking behavior to work with Announcements in addition to regular Updates/posts.

            When I make an update and add a hashtag (#) it creates a searchable/clickable link. When the post type is Announcement, this behavior is not the same and it remains plain text.

            • Add moderation feature to Yammer Groups

              Add an optional ability to moderate Yammer Groups. We'd like to use Yammer during events for asking questions and polling. We've used a tool called Sli.do for this but would like to move to Yammer but we require the ability to vet posts. For meetings where leaders and senior executives are presenting a negative comment or question can cast a negative feeling on a meeting.

              • seen by (users)

                I can see how many users have seen my post. But it would be nice to click on the text to see WHO has seen the post,

                then I can ask somebody to reply when i know they have seen my post but not replied.

                • Allow admins to plan & save posts in advance

                  Currently It is not possible to plan a post in advance as we can do on Facebook/Linked in... It is very useful when you want to increase your operational efficiency.

                    • This way I can stay updated with the activities of people I'm following

                      Give push notifications from the people I'm following whenever they post a new message.

                      • When you share a post to mulitple Yammer Groups, turn of commenting and redirect users to original post to comment.

                        When you share a post to multiple Yammer Groups, have the option of turning of commenting on shared post and redirect users to original post to comment. This way there aren't several threads of the same conversation going on in multiple Yammer Groups.

                        • Please make it clearer whether a group is private/public.

                          Some groups I am a member of have both a private and public icon within its title. Other groups clear have the public/private icon displayed, whilst other groups have none at all.

                              • Please add a weekly notification option to Yammer

                                Currently Yammer only allows daily notification option. After a while, users ignore Yammer daily notifications because it turns into a spam for them. Please add a weekly digest option to Yammer notifications setting so that users who still want to get notifications can receive less but more organized updates from their groups and we wouldn't lose these users by making Yammer more friendly. Thank you!

                                  I'd like to have a view that contains announcements that is separate from my new conversations. Think of this along the vain of Focused Inbox in Outlook. My new conversations often get lost in the list of announcements and I have to hunt for them in my unread folder.

                                  • 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 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,…

                                      csv ファイル内の "Last activity date" の項目が "空白" のユーザーが存在している表示について改善を要求する。
                                      "Last activity date" の項目に日付が入っていて "Posted Count"、"Read Count"、"Liked Count" が "0" と表示されているユーザーについて改善を要求する。

                                      In exported csv file of Yammer activity report, some users’ "Last activity date" columns shows blank, no information included. Or even though date value is displayed in "Last activity date", some users’ "Posted Count", "Read Count" and "Liked Count" show “0”.

                                      This behavior mentioned above should be fixed so that we will be able to acquire the exact information of users’ activities on Yammer.

                                      Thank…

                                      • Enable Yammer to suggest posts/threads based on the words/keywords the users are typing

                                        Enable Yammer to suggest posts/threads based on the words/keywords the users are typing?
                                        This would prevent users creating the same topics over and over.

                                        • Allow upload of files to some Yammer groups, but block for others

                                          Currently, allowing upload of files is either an on/off thing for an entire Yammer network. Not very flexible. Ideally, we would have control over which groups can upload/share files at all, and which ones cannot. Thanks.
