Is there a way to add a countdown timer to a Yammer group?

3 Replies

I would also like to know the answer to this question.  How to embed a countdown url into Yammer so it dynamically displays,

 

Thanks in advance

No one ever responded to my question.
Solution

You cannot customize the Yammer Web UI and embed a custom clock or any html/JavaScript.

 

The max you can do is add a pinned document or link to your group, not a countdown timer.

 

Or run a manual campaign, where the communications manager makes a daily post:

10 Days to go, 9 Days to go, ...and so on. A new post per day.

Not very effective and generates lots of clutter in the group.
