When is this planned for release? Seems to be low hanging fruit that can have a big impact.
>>We understand the interest. Stay tuned, we are almost done.
[Spiros] It’s is a significant drawback for closed corporate networks.
[Yammer] Thanks for your input, and we understand the situation. We are considering this change. When Yammer was a separate app, we wanted to help the user experience by providing them this option. As Yammer is fully integrated with Office 365, we are re-looking at this.
[Kevin] My comment below doesn’t fit into this suggestion. I don’t want to be able to change the sort order of the groups, I want it as a default to be sorted by groups with unread posts in it.
[Yammer] Kevin, we look at suggestions in categories which are similar and as the status says we are looking into this area. If you strongly feel it is different, feel free to log a separate suggestion.
[Kevin] Clearly no one from Yammer actually moderates or reads these posts. No response, even to my comment below asking you to create a separate thread as my request is not to change the sort order of the groups
[Yammer] Apologize for the inconvenience. We at the Yammer team are looking into UserVoice comments on a regular basis, we may have missed your comment, sorry.
Thanks for the suggestion. Yammer will be integrating closely with O365 groups - and in this world, group membership can be managed right in AAD (potentially using powershell).

Thanks for the comments here.
[Previous comment] Yammer is different from the other Office 365 tools in that it is very limited ability to manage the groups and peoples access to groups, consequently we need to divide the networks according to our email suffixes, which is possible for Yammer Basic, but not for Yammer Enterprise.
[Yammer team] Yammer is now fully integrated with O365, and is utilizing the capabilities of O365 groups, similar to other workloads! More info here: https://blogs.office.com/2016/09/26/yammer-strengthens-team-collaboration-through-integration-with-office-365-groups/. So, you can use the management capabilities of O365 groups to manage Yammer groups as well. We believe having multiple groups in a single network allows users to have a better experience - all groups show in the left navigation, notifications are all in one place etc. Plus helps with easier management - one network to manage.

Thanks for this suggestion, we’re considering this for future product work.
Thanks for the suggestion. FYI - copy/paste images from clip board works on the Microsoft Edge browser.
