Yesterday I start to roll out the New Yammer in our organisation. 

Our posts are provided with topics and I find it perfect to search for all posts with the same topic.

 

Now with the New Yammer I am not able to search for the topic in a post either let me show all the existing topics. 

 

Is it no longer intended to provide posts with topics in the New Yammer?

I just noticed this myself and am disappointed that the Advanced Search, the counts identifying how many conversations, communities, or topics are associated with your search are gone as well. These were all helpful in encouraging folks to use Search first before posting duplicate questions.

This should definitely be addressed. Topics are one of the key features that make Yammer organized. Without topics, a lot of information is lost in the dynamic flow of communities.

@SabineKetI 100% agree. The elimination of the advanced search option is a big issue. As another user mentioned, now people will post the same question over and over again because they can't search for it. As for my community admins and managers, they can't search an issue/topic by date range. For example, they know a post about an specific issue was posted in the summer, but don't want to search posts outside of this time range. It like finding a needle in a haystack. I hope Microsoft addresses this ASAP. 

@SabineKet I further note that https://web.yammer.com/topics no longer displays a list of top topics.  It use to. Now it does very briefly, and quickly redirects to https://web.yammer.com/main/feed.  I'd like to know how to get the topic list again.  

Are there any updates from Microsoft or other users on the Advanced Search option? It really needs to be reinstated, otherwise searching for important conversations and info is like searching for a needle in a haystack.
