Today we announced intelligent event capabilities in Microsoft 365 that enable anyone to view live events in real-time or on-demand, across devices. These new capabilities leverage deep integration of Yammer, Stream, Microsoft Teams, and the rest of Office 365. When intelligent event capabilities are deployed in Yammer over the coming weeks, you will be able to:
Live events help you bring company gatherings – such as a “town hall” or “all hands” – to everyone across the organization, on any device, so you can effectively communicate news and updates and drive employee engagement. For example, during the Employee Engagement Summit, we shared how Microsoft drives transformation at scale and connects employees worldwide with our leadership team through monthly company-wide “Q&A” live events, while fostering sustained engagement and dialogue in Yammer.
Live events enhance communities of any kind, by bringing people together around important moments or topics. Where communities in Yammer foster and sustain two-way conversation, events add moments of high engagement to help communities take important steps forward toward their goals.
Over the years, we have been inspired by customers around the globe who are using Microsoft technology to bring these moments and communities together. TDS Telecomm recently hosted an event to honor their employees on Veterans Day at their corporate headquarters in Madison Wisconsin, using Yammer to allow remote workers to participate and watch the video through TDS’s Patriot Employees group in Yammer. People across multiple regions and departments instantly posted in Yammer to honor and thank the company’s veterans for their service, building a stronger connection and sense of belonging for veteran employees and advocates across the company.
We will share further details when live events becomes available over the coming weeks. To take advantage of live events in Yammer, your organization will need Office 365, with active deployment of Yammer, Microsoft Teams and Stream. To enable the solution, you will need to have Office 365 Groups enabled and Office 365 identity enforced. Live events are just one of the many innovations coming to Yammer as we deepen integration of Yammer and Office 365.
