Hello All,

I have some questions on yammer.

As we know , yammer groups is now integrated with office 365 groups,I would like to know on following points :

1) What is the max number of users allowed in one office 365 group (and thereby in yammer group)?

2) Every member of  yammer group will have access to office 365 resources such as SharePoint site,how to restrict it ?

3)Any other limitations or considerations with this integrated environment?

1. 1,000 is the user limit (see https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Learn-about-Office-365-groups-b565caa1-5c40-40ef-9915-60fdb...)

2. Correct, however in SharePoint you can break inheritance on lists and libraries allowing you to assign unique permissions

3. You can't add Teams on top of a Yammer group as there is no mailbox. Also O365 Groups allows external users, however the associated Yammer group won't. Conversely if you set up an external Yammer group it won't attach an O365 Group. And if you restrict O365 Group creation then when creating a Yammer group it won't create the associated O365 group - leaving the conversations orphaned from the files and other resources.

When will we start to see existing Office 365 Groups in Yammer? When will existing Office 365 Groups populate as groups in the Yammer navigation pane on the left?

At Ignite last year they talked about "groupification" coming in 2018 - the ability to connect Groups to existing Yammer groups and SharePoint sites.
No firm ETA on that yet.
Also, existing O365 Groups won't populate in Yammer as they are not Yammer groups - they are Outlook groups.

Hi Loryan, 

 

Can you confirm when "groupification" will be official?

 

Do you know if it will occur automatically or will you need to manually convert the Yammer standard Groups into an Office 365 Connected Group?

You need to meet the following requirements to enable O365 connected Yammer groups:

 

- a 1:1 network:tenant configuration. Microsoft has started merging networks on the 16th of October as they won't support multiple Yammer networks in the same tenant going forward

- You need to enforce Office 365 identities

 

You can check the current status under "security" in the Yammer admin settings. Users still need the permission to create an Office 365 group for this to work. We're getting the option to create connected groups via the admin center in the future. Converting existing Yammer groups to connected groups is done by toggling the privacy setting. Only public and private + listed groups are supported.
