We have the need to archive Yammer Groups. This means a group owner should be able to mark the group via the Group Settings as archived. Users will still be able to read the posts but not able to add new. Thank you for your thoughts and hopefully to see this feature soon!

@Konstantina Antoniadou Thanks for the feedback. This is something we'll have to consider a bit more. Currently, you can archive a Yammer group that is Office 365 connected, but it removes all the conversations and the group from view. What some customers have done is to put "ARCHIVE" in the group title and put some wording in the description that the group is no longer in use. This might not restrict all use of the group, but this usually deters most of it.
