When I post a link to a Sharepoint News message on Yammer, the link is very Ugly. I would have expected a sort of 'Preview' with the image and the title. Is this in development?

 

Reason: We are creating our intranet site on Sharepoint and we would like to

It's being discussed over in Change Alerts but I thought it was worth mentioning here. The Yammer App for Windows has been released.  Users are starting to get notifications of its availability, possible though First Release Select users only:

It works fine. however, embedded stream video is not working in this app.

Share your experience around getting insights about Yammer from the Office 365 Admin Center usage reporting. While waiting for roles are you able to access these reports? Do you lean on the adoption content pack? Do you officially sit in IT? 

 

Just curious

Not sure if this is intentional, or a known issue...but I would personally like to bookmark posts from external groups to read later.

Hello,

in our networks every user can deativate other users. Is this working as designed?

Thanks,

Yes, that is working as designed and is a long standing feature. The "deactivated" user gets an email and if they login the account is immediately available again.

That's not right. I would suggest logging a Service Request straight away. Only admins should be able to deactivate other users.

From this discussion post I hear that Yammer Files will be replaced by Sharepoint. Will this mean uploading a document of the same name will add a version? Cause at the moment doing that creates a duplicate in Yammer.

 

Anyway here's my problem use case:

I want to turn off / take away the Private Messages section (the one down in the left corner) of the home page (see attached picture). How do I do that? Just think that they are a distraction and that they make the Home page more cluttered.

I agree that panel is distracting and ideally could be minimized so as to reduce the visual cluter.
