HI folks, I'm trying to embed Yammer's "All Company" feed into a new SharePoint Online intranet home page (wiki page, mainly out of the box). Looks like you can't get the embed code like you can with a Yammer Group.
What's the best option here? Am I stuck with a redundant Yammer Group that has to have the permissions updated whenever someone joins or leaves the company? How do I keep users from being confused about two redundant feeds?
Any best practices or lessons learned you can share? I did some searching ahead of time and surprisingly didn't come across any posts with the same issue. So maybe I'm missing something.
Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!

This "group" doesn't provide the Embed link in the sidebar the way other Yammer Groups do. And the new Modern Page web part for Yammer doesn't consider the All Company URL a valid one. So, doesn't look like this is possible.
Yammer's messaging for the past several years has been to focus on Yammer Groups for collaboration use cases, and de-emphasize the use of the All Company "group". What is the use case for embedding this on your SharePoint site?

Turns out it's pretty easy:

@Matt Wadethe question was for the All Company "group" and that group doesn't show the Embed link in the sidebar.

Fair enough. There technically isn't an "All Company Feed" - it would be the "Discovery", "All", or "Following" feeds.

Perhaps this is semantics, but I'm going by Yammer's own phrasing. It shows up not only in the left-hand navigation but above every new post in that feed. Do you not see the same words I've highlighted below? Again, I'm simply using the same wording as the Yammer folks are.

The "Discovery" feed is different than the "All" and "Following" feeds in that same location. When I go to "All Company" I get the "all" feed since that is my preference in my network. Those feeds are actually tuned to each user - "all" that you see might be different from what I see in the same network since we might be members of different private groups. It's not the same for everyone.

Sadly, I couldn't get it to work in a new SharePoint Communication site? :-(

Exactly. It has an "embed" web part for code but it's very particular about what snippets it will accept. I would love to make a communication site our new "home page" for the company intranet but the Yammer thing is, again, a deal killer. Previously, I tried creating a new "All Company" Yammer group so I can imbed it but people get confused and post in the default "All Company" group anyway which I can't surface. Very frusterating.

I wasn't aware you could do that. Do you know how? I agree with you about All Company. However it's the feed that everyone sees first and where our users inevitably post to first despite whatever training that has told them otherwise.

Replacing the feed id with 'all' doesn't seem to work anymore. Our intranet home page is now feeding the Tech Support feed instead of All Company which EVERY TEAM uses as their main feed. What a pain. I know some orgs are so large they wouldn't find All Company practically useful but SMEs where integration is key certainly do. If anyone has another solution I'm all ears.

Managed to find a workaround and took the embed code from a group feed and changed the "FeedId" field to 'all'.
Want to update that the Yammer modern web part now allows searching up "All Company" as a feed, and it also allows posting :D
