While impersonating user using Yammer Impersonation API. We see that messages posted in Yammer shows "John wednesday 2 pm from 'app_name'" Can we remove from App name? or is it not possible to remove that.

Did you ever find a solution? I'm seeing the same issue. 

@Kane316  Sorry for late reply. We registered the app with company name so that it shows as posted from company.

@Mudasar Syed what is the issue with the display? That is not specific to impersonation. It would appear the same if John were to use the app themselves (without impersonation).

 

Like many modern technology platforms, it is considered best practice to identify the client used to author the message to someone reading it. Which in this case is your app.
