Here is my situation. 1. I customized my notifications so I get emails sent to outlook if something is in my Yam inbox. I do this so I can flag the Yammer message as a task. 2. I manage a small business so I get tagged a lot, so needless to say my email inbox gets pounded by yammer. (I have a lot of guest users because I hire youth, and that generation does not like email) 3. I then Turn off yammer notifications. Emails stop coming. Ahhh refreshing. I figure I can just select email message in yammer manually if it's important. This is true for the desktop, but not on the mobile app. So I have an issue, the possibility of missed doing a task with no flaged emails, or tons of email redundancy.
1. The only solution is see is a "manual email message in share options" on the mobile app! 2. Leave message marked unread, but then that can get confusing and the possibility of mistakes. 3. Or have a some kind of flag message button that works with office 365?
I am interested in hearing how you fellow Yams are dealing with this?
If I understand correctly, you are looking for an automated way to keep track of posts you are tagged in without getting bombarded with email notifications. Here are a couple of options:
1) Turn the notifications back on and use an Outlook rule to sort them into a folder or assign a category to them. 2) Instead of keeping the messages unread in your inbox, create a private/unlisted group and share the threads that are tasks into this group. Call it "William's Tasks" or something like that.
These might not be quite right, but once you respond, I might be able to make better suggestions.
