Email Notifications to Public Groups Not Members

Highlighted
Frequent Contributor

I understand that posting an Announcement to a group will send emails but I have a Group that's setup as Public which I embed on our SharePoint site so I don't have to add group members.

 

If we do post an announcement, will everyone in the Network get the email since it's public or only those members I've manually added as a member get the email? If only members get the email, I can import them but do NOT want them all to then get an email that they're added.

 

Our users click on the "Join the Conversation" link on the embedded Yammer feed which then shows the feed then adds them into the All Company group. BUT we can't use the All Company Feed as it's littered with the joined posts and can't be embedded on a SP site.

No. Only the members of the Yammer group will get notified in their Yammer Inboxes (most users have inboxes set to email when new items are in the inbox).

That isn't something you can control. They're going to get the email.

Am confused about the reference to All Company. What Yammer Group holds the Announcement you're referencing? To your point it very likely should NOT be the All Company Group.

 

Which Web Part are you using?

- Embed

- Yammer (aka Yammer Highlights)

 - Yammer Conversations (aka the new Yammer web part)
