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. Desktop app: When going "Back to Search", scroll to selected conversation in the Search Results list

    In the desktop app, if I perform a search, scroll down through the results, View Full Conversation, and then Back to Search, the search results list is displayed from the top again.

    This makes it difficult to go back and forth to view multiple full conversations.

    Instead, when returning to the search results list, scroll so that that the conversation you clicked on is visible.

  2. add the possibility to share SharePoint pages - as web pages more integrated (images, content ...) like internet web sites

    We try to promote Yammer as a new way to communicate to a wide and large audience. The SharePoint site could be used to publish cold news or long articles. Today, it's not possible de share pages from Yammer - only documents stored in the SP library is avaible.
    The idea is to be able to share, directly from Yammer, more content from SharePoint and to design it correctly.

  3. When viewing a Conversation from a Search result list, highlight the terms that were searched for

    When you search for specific text, a list of related conversations is displayed. When you click to view the full content of one of the conversations, the text is displayed.

    It would be helpful if the text that was searched for was highlighted in the conversation content.

    Even better would be if the various search terms were highlighted with different colors. That way, if one of the search terms had a bunch of instances but another only had one instance, the one instance would stand out.

  4. Search for text within a conversation on desktop Yammer, similar to 'Find on Page' in browser

    When using Yammer via a browser, we can use the browser's 'Find on page' functionality to search within a conversation for the desired text.

    When using Yammer desktop, however, there does not appear to be equivalent functionality.

    This would be very useful for finding specific text within a long conversation.

  6. moving yammer network between geolocations

    As an early adopter our company started using Yammer when the only available geolocation was US. Later on, the EU geo became available and as an EU-based company we wanted to move our Yammer network to the EU geo, because of GDPR etc. As per Microsoft's support this is not possible. What's even more disappointin is that Microsoft's support adviced us there is no way for us to move to the EU geo. Not even by deleting the US network and create a new network in the EU. This is just bad service and no proper way to treat early…

  7. Migrate Yammer network from US_Geo to EU_Geo for Existing Customers who had purchased theirOffice 365 Tenant before EU_GEO Availability for

    Currently there are many companies that are located in EU but have their Yammer data residency in the US Geo cause the EU Geo wasn't available when they purchased their O365 tenant. However, for compliance reasons it's not possible to use Yammer while the data resides in US, hence it would be very beneficial if Yammer network migration to the EU Geo was possible for those customers.

  8. 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?

  9. Easily identify Office 365 connected Yammer groups in the groups list on the UI

    Make it easier for users to identify O365 connected groups in the list of groups on the left side of the UI. This could be something similar to the globe that makes it easy to identify external Yammer groups.

  10. Enable users to see a list of groups that they are admins (owners) of

    Enable Yammer users to easily find and get a list of Yammer groups that they are administrators (owners) of. This will help users keep an track of the ones they own, take any action needed easily, and reduce proliferation of abandoned groups.

  11. 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.

  12. Allow me to have the pic at the beginning of the post instead of the end (or even some where in the middle

    I have a weekly feature in a Yammer group called Tech Tip Tuesday. I have a graphic to help draw people's attention to it. I'd like the graphic to appear at the top of the post rather than at the bottom.

  13. Include an option to confirm that the reader has read and understood the post. Notification to be sent to the composer of the post.

    Some contracts require staff to have read and understood communication as per the client's requests. A facility through Yammer is therefore crucial if we are using Yammer instead of Outlook communication. In Outlook we can send a vote system so readers can confirm they have read and understood the email and a way through Yammer would assist. The vote can also be tailored.

  15. Add point system to see top contributors / collaborators in Yammer community

    Yammer is a good tool for managing communication in team. To encourage collaboration and get ideas from everyone, it would be good, if Yammer has some points system for every like/ comments/posts.

  17. 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!

  19. Stop accepting votes to a poll after a week or 10 days

    The idea of the poll is get the answers and after some days stop the poll and reveal the right answer. But it looks currently we can only hide or the delete the Poll which doesn't make sense.
