We have in the past experimented with whether or not to show these messages. What we have so far, however, is that they are an important mechanism to welcome and on-board new users, and make them feel at home in the Yammer network. Therefore, we have decided to keep showing these messages for smaller networks – as soon as a network reaches 1000 users, the messages will no longer be shown.
We are also more holistically thinking about the onboarding experience at this point though, and as part of this, will also re-consider whether the #joined message is still the most effective way to welcome new users.Anonymous commented
Please make the option to diable, the welcom messages. In the startup phase there will potenitally be hundreds joining every week, making the welcom messages quite annoying.
Networks with more than 1000 members will not see the #joined message, but it’s currently in place for smaller networks. We’ve heard this request a lot and are currently rethinking our #joined message.Anonymous shared this idea ·

We have the same issue, we want to have one office 365 tenant for easy central admininstration across all users. Our users also span 3 different languages and we use three different suffixes on email addresses and UPNs. 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. This came as a very unpleasant surprise to us having started with the Yammer Basic and three different networks, which is not supported in Yammer Enterprise.
