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.

  2. Group name/avatars appear inline when a group link is shared

    When sharing the link to a Yammer group in a post or comment, this appears as just a URL and link box. It would be great if the link would create a box image (similar to what appears when a thread link is shared) with the Group name/avatar and description, and even a 'join' button to make it easier for people to join the groups that are suggested by others.

  3. interactive maps in Groups

    I'd like to be able to add a map to Yammer Group. On that map be able to 'pin' locations relating to posts.
    Be great if you could click on a 'pin' on the map and be taken to the post and thread.

  5. Automatically invite users into groups via O365 securitygroups

    In our environment, a lot of user based access is managed trough securitygroups in O365. We'd like to have the ability to integrate users from those security groups automatically into a certain yammer group - e.g. a new member of HR is created and set to the security group to have access to certain sharepoint teamsites. This member then should automatically have access to the corresponding yammer group for that team.

    We’re working on some infrastructure ground work to allow for this feature. It’s definitely on our roadmap.

  6. Disable users from synchronizing their contacts through yammer mobile ap

    The idea is to give tenant admins the capability to prevent users from syncing their personal contacts to yammer from yammer mobile app. This is not done right now if I am wrong.

  7. Implement Control+Enter as a keyboard shortcut for 'Post'

    Microsoft Outlook has the shortcut Control+Enter to send an e-mail. Google's recognised the popularity of this shortcut in attracting Outlook users and have implemented it.

    Microsoft should implement the Control+Enter shortcut for posting messages.

    Benefits include
    1) Allows conversations to progress more rapidly: pressing the 'Post' button requires using the mouse or using Tab+Tab+Tab+Space.

    2) The familiar Control+Enter shortcut for Outlook users doesn't need to be relearned for Yammer users.

    3) Increased consistency across Microsoft products.

  8. Warn users about deleting a post with replies

    When a user deletes a post with replies, the replies are orphaned and make no sense.

    Recommend giving the user a prompt discouraging them from deleting. If they delete the post anyway, inform reply owners so they can delete their posts as well. Possibly inform network or group admin of orphaned conversation threads so they can be managed more quickly.

    Thanks for the feedback! We’re constantly thinking about how to improve the messaging experience, so certainly appreciate your input here.

  9. "Email Me" function should be dated the same day

    When I use "Email Me" to obtain a copy of a Yammer post, it would be nice if the message can be dated the same day I Email myself, perhaps by wrapping the original post with a new message. I often email myself in order to forward a discussion to people in my address book. Right now it is dated when the original post was made which could be several days earlier, and the message would be marked read, buried by other emails in the inbox.

  11. extend the concept of Topics to Groups.

    It'd be useful to extend the idea of topics to whole groups - our users tend to search on concepts or software names etc. so if you have a group which is interested in those even if there aren't any specific threads within it mentioning it directly.

    At the moment I'm working around this by using the 150 character description field (which is included as part of the trawl in a standard Search) and hashtagging key words (only for convention), but when the search results come back, every conversation within the group comes back as a hit, whether with a…

  12. Yammer Posts in Delve

    As Yammer is a key content source it would be great if Office Graph would include this in Delve. Yammer still feels like a content silo while the rest of Office 365 is very integrated.

    Thanks for this suggestion. There are many areas of integration with o365 that we’re working on currently. This idea is in our backlog as we investigate the costs.

  13. For Yammer External Networks, allow editing of profile feilds

    - to show Company Name, for example , since everyone in an External Network comes from a different Company.

  14. Enable Yammer Notifier to reuse browser tabs

    Overview: The Yammer Notifier (in the system notification area) provides an alert when there is a new alert. Clicking the Yammer Notifier opens a new browser tab and clears the alert.

    Current behavior: If there is a new alert, clicking the Yammer Notifier will open up another browser tab instead of reusing the open browser tab.

    Expected behavior: If there is a new alert, clicking the Yammer Notifier brings focus to the already existing browser tab.

    Impact of current behavior: users open many Yammer tabs and become confused as to which Yammer tab is the "primary".

    The current behavior can…

  15. Reduce group overlap through display of similar names during naming

    When people create a group, they type in a name, and Yammer searches for an exact match.

    Would it be too hard to have Yammer display names (or even brief info about) similar group names that already exist?

    For example, if I type "tax," show me the list of six other groups with "tax" in the name; and ideally, how many members each group has.

    I hope this might reduce the number of groups created that overlap and/or have very similar (but not identical) names.

    While we’ve tried similar ideas in the past without success, we are currently considering another feature test for this idea.

  16. have a resizable left navigation bar

    This would allow for the widening of the left navigation groups area if needed.

    Thanks for the feedback! We probably won’t be building this anytime soon, but we are exploring ways to give users more flexibility over the ordering of groups in the left nav.

    Thanks for submitting this. Could you clarify what you mean by integrating with classrooms? It would be helpful to hear how you plan on using Yammer.

  18. Integrate on Premise Active Directory Groups in Yammer

    Integrate on Premise Active Directory Groups in Yammer.
    We would like to have same groups which are already present in office 365 synced with on premise Active Directory available in Yammer rather then creating new groups.

  19. Separate external groups from external messaging

    It would be great to gain the functionality to switch on external groups, without having to switch on external messaging across our Yammer network. We're very conscious of keeping the split between what external people can see and what they can't and external messaging blurs the lines there.

    Apologies for the previous update, which doesn’t correctly address the request/question here. There is currently no way to set this up such that external groups are enabled while the ability to add external participants in a discussion is disabled. You can only opt out or in for both external messaging and external groups.

    As you may already know, you can set up external networks, however, which would be a completely separate network with its own membership, groups, and content. External networks can be enabled separately to external groups and messaging because they don’t “live” in the home network.

    Have you tried starting a private conversation in yammer? It is possible to start a thread with people sans having to do so in a group by way of composing a new private message. Could you give us some more detail:
    -how many people would you like to include in the thread?
    -have you tried creating a new private message and adding people to the list of recipients?
    -have you tried creating a group, adding all of the people involved, and reaching out them that way?

    Thanks and looking forward to hearing back from you!
