Yammer integration with Office 365 Groups now rolling out

Frequently asked questions

 

Q. How do I know if my tenant is eligible for this new Yammer groups experience?

A. To meet the initial rollout requirements, you must have only one Yammer network associated with your Office 365 tenant and Office 365 identity must be enforced. Please refer to the support article to learn more about configuration requirements in your tenant.

 

Q. Will my existing Yammer groups be converted to Office 365–connected Yammer groups?

A. Currently, only new groups created in Yammer that meet the initial rollout requirements will be Office 365–connected Yammer groups. In the coming months, we will be working on the next phase of converting existing non-connected Yammer groups.

 

Q. If I disable Office 365 Groups creation for my tenant, will the groups that I create in Yammer be Office 365–connected?

 

A. No. If you have disabled Office 365 Groups creation, the groups you create in Yammer will not be connected to Office 365 Groups.

 

Q. Will a message I post to an Office 365–connected Yammer group also appear in the same group in Outlook?

A. No. The conversations will either reside in a group in Outlook or a connected Yammer group, whichever communication tool your group decided to use at its origin. Messages won’t appear in both. Users who send a message in Outlook to an Office 365–connected Yammer group will receive a “Success” email confirming their message was posted, and any replies to that message will follow standard Yammer notifications for posts via email.
