HI Robert,

 

Is it possible for you to share where exactly you blocked creation of groups from Yammer? In our organization we want to block users to be able to create O365

Yes - that is correct. While we won't restrict users who want to create Yammer groups, IT can can control if that Yammer group creates an O365 group.

Hi William. I still see the option to "post to this group by email." But only in a Yammer group. I don't see the option in the "All Company" or "All Network" group.

We are using the cordova social sharing plugin to share images, which works for Yammer on android or any other iOS app. There seems to be a known issue passing in a file path as opposed to a URL - does anyone know if this is a known bug - if so when is it

Hi everyone! I was a fairly active member on the external community about a year ago, but I ended up leaving the Microsoft partner world for a bit. Well -- now I am back! I am getting myself back up to speed on O365 (a lot can change in a year). I am wond

I remember hearing last year that Yammer was going to give verified admins the ability to move posts/threads from All Company into an appropriate group. Is that still coming? I checked the road map, but I don't see anything about it.

I see value in that option, especially aligned with a network of community managers and good user support info.

I saw this change in the admin center today.  What happens if we do not have Exchange online and do not allow end users to provision Office 365 groups today?  Today - anyone in our Yammer network can create a group.  Since we have Office 365 group creatio
