Hi, in the blog post, it says that "Through Office 365 Groups integration, Office 365 administrators will soon be able to use query-based group membership in Yammer based on Azure Active Directory attributes such as role, location and manager. This will ensure that certain groups based on organizational structure dynamically include the right members."


What does this mean? That it will be possible to manage membership in Yammer groups through membership in Office 365 Groups, and that membership in Office 365 Groups can be automatic based on AAD attributes?

We are currently adding support in Yammer Groups that are connected Office to support 'Dynamic groups'. Our wonderful developers are hard at work to deliver this feature!

That could be an intensely helpful function.

excellent! will all group membership changes reflect in Yammer Groups or just in particular configurations?

Are they hard at work expecting to have this in a couple of months, or is this later this year kind of timeframe, or (hopefully not) not until far future?

We have the same need in this post.
