We recently moved from VMware Socialcast to Yammer. Many employees are complaining that they cannot cross share a message with multiple groups.

In Yammer a message can only belong to one group and you have to re-share the message to make it appear in other groups which means that you have potentially multiple discussions on the same topic.

My question is: are there any plans to solve this challenge for end users? How can we create one single thread that can basically appear in multiple groups so you have a single focused discussion instead of similar discussions in multiple groups. This also truly contributed to connecting with new people in your outer loop.

@DennisAgusi full support! @mentioning of posts between groups is highly missed.
Hopefully we will get a date by the Yammer Product Team!

@DennisAgusi Just personally speaking, I've had this desire for Yammer as well. Just curious, in SocialCast did it ever feel spammy?

No... There were some people overusing it but we simply told them to be careful with over using this. I can share the survey results where we aks people to rate the transition from socialcast to yammer. And this was the main pain point shared.

Good to hear that you are at least looking at this :beaming_face_with_smiling_eyes:

Agree, this has also been a frustration in any app which uses O365 or AD groups. At the very least, users should have the ability to "share" or "rebroadcast" content to other groups to which the users is a member

We use the current 'Share' functionally to have content seen between groups, but do get asked occasionally how to post the same message in different groups at once. There may be an easier way to display this content based on membership so it doesn't feel spammy. Depending on the company culture, a content push to different groups will get out of control and be an alternative for email (one-way megaphone comms).

How did replies show up for those messages posted in different groups? Were the replies mirrored across the groups or were the replies separate for each group?

Mirrored across the different groups. That is the power of this concept. One single dialogue around that topic.
