Is someone on a Groups adoption related bonus?

Beginning May 2017, existing groups in your network will be connected to Office 365 and provisioned with Office 365 Group resources.


We've previously locked down group creation to only a few defined persons so

The “duplication of Team Sites, libraries and One Notes is a headache already, but will only get worse, when Microsoft also will “connect” existing Yammer Groups.

Who is in your group?  Sure you can just look in the UI.  (This is what it looks like)




No problem.  If you would like a list to review, you could always start typing, or maybe copy and paste (with a whole lot of scrolling).  Sounds like fun…  OR, you can

Brilliant! Thank you for posting, just saved me so much time. Thanks again!

Excellent article - thanks for this.

I noticed a lock icon where the post button normally is - I'm a group admin and have never seen this before... Any insight??

Hi Tonia...does it look like the attached image? If so, I think that lock icon just serves as a reminder that you are posting to a private group. When posting in a public

Yammer empowers every person in your company with an open space to connect, share and work out loud. With 70 percent annual growth in active groups, there’s greater momentum in Yammer than ever before. Yammer and SharePoint have always been natural comple

Just so I am clear, this is not a new Yammer feature correct? It is the Yammer Embed which has not been improved or enhanced in many years.

Exciting to hear about communication sites! Glad to see Yammer legitimized with richer integration with SharePoint.

Dear Yammer community,


Many of you might have been using the Yammer Analytics dashboard which is part of Office365 Adoption Preview (Power BI dashboard) being released and updated by Microsoft lately. I have hard time believing these insights.

We get the same issue. We can only say 'the raw statistics we get from Yammer are wildly dissimilar; however the trend consistently indicates xyz'.

I think when you create a Yammer group it now creates an O365 Group and Site, but that Group is not accessible from Groups hub.


When you create a Team in MS Teams it creates a O365 Group which you CAN see in Groups Hub.


For us, we created both a Yammer Gr

Yes correct. However I'm not really sure what you are referring to as the 'Groups Hub' ?


What is the limit of pinned links?

As an aside, I just added 60 links to a group, only in "Pinned." No warnings, no alerts. I could go all day!

Brett, I have never experimented with how many links can be added to the "Pinned" group section. But, don't forget links can also be added to the Info box.

Hello, 1100 user tenant. I heard #Joined messages were going away for large orgs but were still seeing them. Any timeline on when they will stop?

You can also put in a mail transport rule to block these messages:

My empirical experience is that the joined messages will stop at 1000 users, but let us know what your expereince is, since there are no official annoucements.

There's never been official word on what the new limit is, but when the network achieves this number, then the posts stop.  Until then, you are welcome to try my method f

Great article Scott - I absolutely agree!

can I set a rule that users cannot turn off yammer announcements, which are automatically sent per e-mail?

Though they can't turn off announcements, they can turn off notifications from a group, which I believe will prevent group announcement notifications. All network notific... Read More
I don't think it's possible for them to turn them off now. They can unsubscribe from all emails from Yammer except announcements.

How can you move a conversation from one group to another?

I believe that the ability to move posts from one group to another is in the Yammer roadmap.

This is feature that we would benefit too, and have a number of scenrios where this could have been used.

You can't ... at least not yet!

I wrote a little powershell app to remove pending users. I manually run a user export, and then in Excel I sort by status, then deleted_at, and then ID.

Does this method of deletion keep the user messages?
