Need a creative solution here.

 

We have an external Yammer network with over 11,000 users. A staff colleague of mine wants to encourage some of our Yammer users to see a list of specific groups so they could join the appropriate one(s).

 

Is there a way to create out a link that will show a list of only a specific set of groups so we can share/message/email it out? There may be an obvious answer, it's just not occurring to me right now.

Not in Yammer itself but every group has a unique URL so you could build a page in SharePoint or whatever with a let of links.

You can also create a post in Yammer with a unique #topic ... within the post create entries for each of the groups using

[group:nnn]

where nnn is the group id (this shows the group name along with a direct link)

 

Click the #topic to get a url to the specific post and then send that out ...

That would definitely work also but I try to use that trick sparingly since it is not officially supported.
