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.

I'd like Yammer to...

  2. Nested Groups/ Subgroups

    So, three other individuals all posted about the possibility of a hierarchy structure for groups in August of last year. One was told it would never be implemented and the other two were told it would be considered.

    It would be optimal if the ability to create subgroups was possible as my company wishes to create a technical support forum of sorts that would require some general structure. Tagging related groups in the right panel isn't what we are looking for. If someone could provide an update about the possibility of this feature being added, that would be wonderful. Thank…

  4. Delete all the messages at once in one group

    Ik wil graag dat je in een keer als admin alle berichten in een groep kan verwijderen. Dit zodat je overzicht kan houden in je organisatie.

  5. Customize Yammer home page to organize groups

    Please add the ability for users to organize Yammer groups. Either the ability to create a navigation structure with tiles which would also surface the amount of updates within the group. Right now the left navigation is a mess, and having a way for users to organize groups the way they want would be a small change but huge improvement in user experience.

  6. There needs to be a way to save multiple file (image) attachments from a personal message or a means of sharing my personal message on

    I sent myself a personal message with 35 image files attached, so that I could either save them to my computer to share on our network, or to share my personal message on to someone else for them to see and utilise the files. I would then have the images on Yammer to be able to share in groups.
    None of which I am able to do.
    The only way is to save each individual file by right clicking and Save As, which takes ages !
    There must be a better way to do this ?
    Please enable the saving…

  7. Hide "Invite your Coworkers" option

    We'd like the ability to disable or hide the "Invite your coworkers" box in the upper right corner on the homepage of yammer. Our users are super sensitive to mass emails and we've had an issue in the past where someone clicked this button and sent an invitation to the whole company, which generated chaos for our support desk.

  9. 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!

  10. to provide download statistics for files

    Yammer should provide download statistics (no. of downloads over time) for files uploaded. These statistics should be available also to the end user in a simple way. All details could be available to admins.

  11. Indicate Weekends in Insight's Graphs

    It would help to show which days were weekends. It would help me understand that low utilization on some days would be understandably low on weekends, but as it stands now, I have to compare side by side which low utilization days on the graph are weekends or not.

  12. turn off All Company

    Turn off notifications for All Company. Most of the notifications come from groups that are irrelevant, so it's spam. There is no need for 10,000 people to see "Congrats Janine!" when they don't know the poster/receiver/dept/team/.... The fact posts in a group could be sent to the whole company makes me less likely to post, because I don't want to spam people with something totally irrelevant. Worse, I don't think people know how it works.

  13. Allow Yammer Administrators to Disable GIF Feature

    Last Week, a Yammer User posted a picture a GIF of a lady taking off her top and then a sign posted CENSORED over her breasts. This is completely inappropriate. We need to be able to moderate our Yammer Groups better and Yammer is encouraging non-professional behavior with the GIF suggestions. Right now when posting a basic windows tip, if I click the GIF button, it is suggesting I add a GIF of the Dave Chappelle Prince Episode or someone taking a swig from a bottle of booze. Most of our users are customer service people who specialize in auto-parts.…

  14. 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.

  15. convert email discussion to a yammer discussion

    Often times a discussion begins organically through email with people reply all over and over. It would be nice to have a button in outlook to convert an email thread to a yammer discussion which then notified everyone in the email that the thread has been created. This would drive users to use the correct tool for different types of communication.

  16. More refined and compact user interface

    The Windows app UI is primitive. It feels like a web page embedded in a window. It doesn't feel like a chat app, but that's really what Yammer is intended to be at least in my organization. Would be nice if the UI would allow a more compact, vertical window that would mostly be a "buddy list" with chats happening either inline or in popup windows like Skype. If I make the window smaller than a normal browser window, the content doesn't dynamically compact or render appropriately. Maybe the general feedback is make the Windows app look and feel more…

  17. Enable users/admin to set retention policies on private messages

    After some time of use Yammer hosts tons of private chats. According to our policies we shouldn't save mails and conversations more than 6 months if there aren't specific reasons. Please give us settings to control this as in Outlook

  18. allow custom "Group Patterns"

    The "Group Patterns" available aren't suitable for business and are a bit silly. Please allow us to upload our own image or just disable the patterns.

  20. Replace deleted posts with replies with a marker indicating a post was deleted

    When posts with replies are deleted, the replies appeared orphaned and can be assumed to be the original post, and misunderstood as it's not known they are in response to another post. It would be clearer if the deleted post was replaced with a placeholder that indicated a post was there that has since been deleted, which could be as simple as text along the lines of "This post has been deleted by the author."

    Sometimes a whole unnecessary discussion can arise based on a misunderstanding of the first reply which could be avoided by such an indication.
