Hi,

 

does anyone know if it's possible to use group objects from AD that are synched to AzureAD as e-mail activated security groups in Yammer? Since those groups can function like email-distribution groups, notifying them in a Yammer post would ideally send an email to all members of that group.

 

I noticed that those groups can be found in our Yammer search but they're marked as 'pending user' waiting to sign up. However, since there's no real user behind it this is never going to happen.

 

Any ideas?

 

Thanks.

Sorry, Only Yammer-only groups and Office 365 groups are currently supported!
