Can Admin delete groups?

Frequent Contributor

We have started using Yammer recently, but only to be able to communicate with ~7,000 users about Corona related subjects (we do not yet have the option to create Company-wide teams in Teams). We are not ready to let users use Yammer in general, so my questions are:


1. Can I as Global Admin delete groups that are created "illegally"?

2. Is it possible to prevent users from creating groups and post in All Company?

1) Yes

2) No to prevent posting in All Company. You can prevent users from creating groups, if you tenant prevents users from creating Office 365 Groups.

@Kevin Crossman Thanks for you reply.


When I am logged on as Global Admin, I am apparently unable to delete private groups. Is there a "backdoor"?

@Jakob Rohde Not sure. Maybe check with MS support?
