Changing name of Yammer "All Company" Community

Contributor

According to the MS documentation, admins will be able to change the name of "All Company" . 

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/yammer/manage-yammer-groups/yammer-all-company-yammer-community 

 

But I login as Admin, I can change the logo, header image, description text etc., but I do not see the "Settings" link to change the name. Any ideas?

Are you a verified network admin, or O365 Global Admin?

@Kevin Crossman Tried with both Verified network admin and global admin. Same result :( 

Hi. Can someone pleae tell me how we activate the restrictions to All Company posts, and the changing the name of the All Company group? As a Yammer network admin I'm not seeing the option on the ellipsis, and neither are our Microsoft O365 admins. We've followed all the steps at the link but it's just not happening for us. Please help, we go live in a few days! https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb/office/restrict-all-company-posts-in-yammer-3219d2ae-db15-4c9f-9...

@Kevin Crossman I am having the same issue.  I am global admin.  I am not sure how to make myself or someone else a verified network admin.  is this the issue?  can anyone been able to correct this?  I also can restrict posts my guess is it is all related.  If it helps, I am using Microsoft 365 identities, and I am in native mode.

 

update:  I have also noticed the trying to upload a cover photo and community icon that when I exit and go back into Yammer those images are not holding.  They switch back to the default cover image and initials.

we're experiencing these same issues

@Joe_Tyler yes, it is pretty annoying right now.

@Jeff WilliamsDid you get any resolution? 

Our IT department got the same question. How to change the name of All Company.
Following this discussion but no answer with the solution yet.

@unnie ayilliath I did hear back from MS support. They said this feature hasn't fully rolled out yet.  But I have checked 3 tenants an I only have the issue on one.  

I have noticed a couple thing though.  On the ones that are working the Yammer network is not in native mode.  The one that isn't is in native mode (there is also a group for the "all company" community, I am assuming this is part of switching to native mode)

The other thing I have noticed is that I no longer get the more options menu at all in this community.

 

I am debating moving one of the tenants that is working to native mode, to see if that reproduces the problem.  I really am nervous to do so though, becasue i really don't want to recreate the problem in another tenant.

Thanks @Jeff Williams . I have also now opened a ticket with support and I also do not see the 3 dots anymore in "All Company". Hopefully, they come back with some resolution.

I also got the same message from MS that this feature is not fully rolled out but they will enable it on our tenant thru the product engineering team. They came back to me saying it has been enabled, but I simply don't see that option. This story drags on :(
Update: MS Support enabled it and finally changing name is possible for us :)
