Dears,

we miss the ability to have a Yammer Announcement for a specific time period pined as first post in a group. The post should appear until defined a defined expiry date by the Group Owner is reached  or until a user marks the post as read. Any plans to add this in your roadmap?

Kudos to the Questions & Answers Yammer feature. It R O C K S!! :blue_heart:

Thank you for your thoughts.

Thanks Steve! Could you share a date / month ? :smiling_face_with_smiling_eyes:

We had this in VMware Socialcast. It was heavily used! It would be a great addition to Yammer!

@Konstantina Antoniadou  we are targeting having the ability to pin an announcement in the 2nd half of 2019. I'd like to hear from you how long you typically keep a post pinned e.g. 48 hours? longer?

 

Thanks

@Ayesha_Mascarenhas longer please. Why limit it? Group Owner should define the date via a calendar/date option. E.g. if it is vacation period and a group owner wants to announce something we wants to reach as many as he can. In this case could also be a month.

Great to hear the update on the timeline! Our group admins would see value of having a pinned post up until an event happens, could be a week before.

@Konstantina Antoniadou Defauting Pinned Posts to something short-ish, like 14 days, seems like a good idea. But allowing it to be up to 1 year also seems like it would be useful in many scenarios.

 

I don't favor more than a year, though.

Up to 30 days worked for us in VMware Socialcast. No user requested it to have it longer. Most of the times it was there for a max a week.
