Microsoft

During Microsoft Ignite 2019, we unveiled new Yammer capabilities that power leadership engagement, company-wide communication, communities, and knowledge sharing in Microsoft 365. Building on a decade of customer success and feedback, the new Yammer delivers a beautiful, intelligent user experience across devices along with deep integration with Microsoft Teams, SharePoint, and Outlook, and new administration and compliance capabilities.

Here's a deeper look at our announcements.

 

 

The New Yammer

Yammer is being rebuilt from the ground up and will become Microsoft’s first application to fully leverage the Fluent Design system – resulting in a fast, modern, interface for web and mobile. But it’s not just a new look – we’re adding dozens of new features to Yammer that deliver top customer requests to help leaders and communities share, communicate, and discover like never before.

 

Communities

Yammer communities (formerly called groups) deliver several new features to help your community showcase its identity and engage in modern ways. Community owners can now add custom cover photos to apply branding to the community and highlight information above the fold, and can expand the reach of messages by setting a question, poll, or praise as an announcement and pinning it to the top.

For community members, we’ve added modern styling, conversation filters, new editing experiences, and the ability to favorite a community. We've also added new event page experiences to make it easy to discover and engage with live events. Post questions or feedback, filter for unanswered questions and watch the live events directly in your community.

Filter for past and upcoming events on the Event page.

 

Knowledge and Discovery

The Yammer discovery feed has been enhanced by AI and machine learning to show you what’s important and drive discovery and open sharing. Unified profiles and search experiences, as well as new question and answer capabilities throughout Yammer make it easy to find experts and information. We’ve also added suggested communities and file attachments to augment normal user activity put to Yammer to work for the organization. Learn more

 

Engagement at the Center of it all

Connecting with your Yammer community from your mobile device is now simple and fun. Instantly capture, trim, apply filters, and publish with a new video experience. Record videos up to three minutes in length, add effects, and share authentic moments with your entire community.

New experiences for scheduling and attending Live Events in Yammer

Schedule and produce a Live Event in Yammer using webcams and desktop and file sharing. Create and manage the entire event in just a few clicks and broadcast from your device.

Yammer wherever you are

 

Modern Yammer mobile apps for iOS and Android

We're investing heavily to create premier experiences for mobile, and going forward, all new features will be available concurrently or ahead of the web experience. We’ve totally rebuilt the mobile apps to bring modern responsiveness and readability to both iOS and Android. New styling, sizing, and iconography brings the power of community into your pocket so that you can stay connected to your organization and your communities wherever you are.

The new Yammer is optimized for mobile.

 

The Yammer app for Microsoft Teams

Stay connected to what’s happening across your organization with new the Yammer app for Teams, which brings the full experience of Yammer right into your hub for teamwork. You can participate in conversations, watch live and on-demand events, and browse your communities just as you would in Yammer, helping you stay up to date with your communities while still having access to your projects, chats, and meetings. No more toggling between apps or confusion about where to chat. The new Yammer App in Teams can be pinned directly into the Teams navigation rail for quick access. It’s Yammer. Just in Teams.

 

 

Yammer conversations in Outlook

Participate in Yammer conversations without leaving your Outlook inbox. Now, the Yammer email notifications render an interactive Yammer thread, so you can get the full context of the discussion and take action such as liking, replying or voting on polls right from Outlook, enabling leaders and communities to extend Yammer’s reach as an organization-wide communication tool.

 

 

The new Yammer conversations web part for SharePoint

We’re bringing the beautiful styling and functionality of the new Yammer to the conversations web part for SharePoint - including file attachments, rich text, and question and answer to help you capture knowledge and mark best answers, making your intelligent intranet even more intelligent.

Suite-wide coherence

We’re also introducing some changes that will help bring consistency across Yammer and Microsoft 365, including a unified user profile and people card pulled from Office 365 and the ability to set a customized navigation header. The search bar and notification bell have also been moved into the navigation bar to reflect a universal experience.

 

Enhanced Security and Compliance

 

eDiscovery in Yammer to rollout in December 2019

eDiscovery searches will now include Yammer conversations, communities, and files - unlocking new opportunities for organizations that require greater compliance controls. eDiscovery will support both per message and full conversation views, allowing admins to search, discover, and place legal holds on all messages and files in your network.


Native Mode

We’re standardizing administration of Yammer people, groups, conversations, and files to provide a more robust and consistent governance experience across Microsoft 365. With Native Mode, Admins can confidently manage Yammer policy through Azure Active Directory and the Microsoft 365 Admin Center without entering Yammer to manage things like group membership, group privacy, or data classification. In Native Mode, Yammer enforces Office 365 group creation policies and all communities are Office 365 connected with all files stored in SharePoint, which means that any files uploaded into Yammer automatically adhere to existing policies and governance. For existing networks, previously uploaded files will be migrated to SharePoint through the Alignment Tool. Native Mode ensures a consistent user experience across all users and communities, and gives users access to modern experiences like Live Events, connected SharePoint Sites, and shared document libraries.

 

Get started with the new Yammer

We’ll be rolling out the new Yammer to a select number of private preview customers starting in December and expanding the preview beyond that in the coming months. The new Yammer is due to roll out to all customers in 2020. Sign up to request early access for your organization: https://aka.ms/TheNewYammer


Keep an eye on this blog and on social as we continue to bring new experiences to your communities in Microsoft 365. The Year of Yammer starts now!

Not a regular user at all of Yammer but a big Teams person, I have to ask, how is Yammer NOT Teams? Is it to help transition from Yammer to Teams? What's the use case for Yammer? Other than it looks gorgeous. 

Occasional Contributor

The new Yammer early access form doesn't seem to be working for me.  Would love to get my company enrolled.

Senior Member
Thank you for the updates. Is the new Yammer, rebuilt from the ground up, going to include external user scenarios as well or will this be a tool strictly for intra-organizational use? I am asking this especially on behalf of the organizations in EU, as EU-geolocated Yammers have currently both creating an external network as well as joining any existing external networks disabled. As enticing as it may sound, most of the orgs we work with also need to include EU nationals in their communities :).

Thanks for update @MuraliSitaram! Please elaborate a little on the O365 structure options for the new "Native mode"? Will it be possible to create a Yammer community (former group) from an existing O365 group/SP site? From an MS Teams' O365 group/SP site? How to prevent the site/group sprawl if the underlying O365 group/site is just for storing documents

@michael you might want to check out this video of a presentation I did last year at Ignite explaining the key differences between Yammer and Teams. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=joAJaQVVRh4

I'd also like to know more about Native Mode. My company has blocked O365 Group creation for all users and that is already a pain for those who get requested to create Teams. Would be a nightmare if it was the same for the New Yammer.

Occasional Contributor

Seems like this was just what it needed - a complete rebuilt with MS365 principles on the backend, and fluent design in the front end. Native mode is essentially what we've been waiting for: the inability to connect Yammer groups/communities to existing Office 365 groups was always a deal breaker for us - and the only reason not to jump ship from FB Workplace. Not having to worry about "one rule for Yammer, another for the rest of O365" is a boon too. We can't wait to see it all in action!

Great news about the new Yammer! Love the looks of it, all the new possibilities and the good connection to the other apps. 

What about topics? We use the topic view in the Yammer conversation web part a lot. Is topics continued?

And what happens when group creation is turned off for regular users? 

Super Contributor

MS had posted 50+ new blog posts related to Ignite in a few days, but there is so much overlap and repeat. Even about Yammer alone there 3 posts talking about same things..

Regular Visitor
Great new features of Yammer, looking forward! For an average corporate end-user, it might be ideal if Teams and Yammer would morph into one application, so that the users don't feel owerwhelmed with too many tools (which they already say they do).

@Michael Fouquette  @Michael Fouquette  have a look at this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RwT61PbD3FM  

Here is the way I am currently trying to summarise the different purposes of Yammer and Teams:

  • Yammer: A group experience designed around group discussion and dialogue - Intended for groups which think of themselves as a community or a network. These groups are focused more on sharing with colleagues where the time pressures are less where the ties between group members are generally weaker and the outcomes are more about learning, sharing, dialogue or networking.
  • Teams: A group experience designed around group chat - Groups which think of themselves as 'team' groups which are operational or project based and are focused on tasks and deliverables.
Contributor

@Camilla Meyer - I hope too that topics are not discontinued.  My sense is that Microsoft has been too file based in its approach and therefore decision makers maybe don't appreciate the value of user generated topic tag meta-data 

New Contributor

Will this be released to GCC in parallel?

From the perspective of this history/social science professor, it will be fascinating to see how Yammer develops as a connective application for communities in all kinds of job sites, from government offices to hospitals to factories to schools to corporations. With its ubiquitous presence in the form of multi-platform versions (iOS, Mac OS, Windows, Browsers, Android) it is obviously designed to fuel a 24/7 community. I wonder how long it will be until workers utilize it not only for Christmas parties, cat videos and bake sales, but as a forum to discuss really impactful issues. Topics like workplace policies on sexual harassment, working conditions, compensation, managerial respect, company ethics, the cost of benefits, paid vs. unpaid leave, etc. could all be debated. 

 

While this kind of discourse may seem far-fetched, it's actually not. The National Labor Relations Board has already issued a directive on employee use of employer-provided electronic networks. According to the NLRB, employees have the right under the Wagner Act to utilize these electronic resources (as long as they are not immediately involved in performing worksite acts of compensated labor). Additionally, it is against Federal law to specifically surveil them while doing so (both Yammer and Teams have private chat functions, as we all know). The NLRB has also stated that bathroom breaks, regular breaks, lunchtime and even outside walks do not constitute moments of employer control. Employees are absolutely and especially free to discuss workplace conditions, compensation issues, managerial treatment, executives and even to organize unions and other supportive groups.  

 

Any IT professional would be literally crazy to shut off employee conversations on such issues using Yammer's managerial settings. No only would that present a clear violation of Federal Labor Law (leading to steep fines and million-dollar lawsuits), it also might result in a criminal conspiracy or wire fraud charge. While it is true that employers probably own the computers, servers and networks that provide Yammer (wait...don't we all own our smartphones, tablets and laptops in 2019?), Federal and state courts have ruled again and again that Americans do not leave their civil rights at the door when they go to work each morning. Employers are not sovereign over their electronic networks; only the United States maintains that power. 

 

Yammer's potential for creating genuinely productive, constructive and sometimes provocative discourse is real. Yammer, Teams and Outlook will make life very difficult for corrupt executives and their obedient minions. Just this past year, Purdue Pharma, a billion dollar corporation, was basically bankrupted by the Federal government over email evidence. Executives and stockholders are now facing the very real possibility of criminal indictment as well.

 

How all of this hyper-connectivity will pan out in the near future is anyone's guess, but I am thankful that we live in interesting times.

Anyone have any info on the current tech stack that Yammer uses now, and how the interconnect with Teams was managed by Microsoft?

@MuraliSitaram 
Our Company is just now trying to analyse the difference between Workplace and Yammer, is there any offical documentation on this? To bad the rollout is taking so long, If we cant have new Yammer before the end of this year, I'm afraid we have to go with Workplace.
