Hi community,

As a part of preparation for the new Yammer launch within the company, I'm updating the usage policy.

What I've encountered with is that when you open the text box, you have to use HTML for doing headlines, bold, italics, so on i.e. text formatting. I've inserted all the tags needed and checked the final look on several sources - looked exactly the way I wanted. But as soon as I inserted it on Yammer - the bald, italics tag didnt work at all. I've checked with the colleagues - the tags are correct.

Could you please advise how can I solve this issue and whether the new Yammer is going to have the same Pol

@Natalia Nemkovich have you tried <strong> rather than <b>?

@Kevin Crossman, I sticked to <b>, the <strong> worked fine, thank you! Will new Yammer require HTML for policy editing too?

@Natalia Nemkovich New Yammer leverages the same policy text.

@Kevin Crossman 

well, it will give my community managers +1 skill which is HTML)
