Is it already possible to turn off the welcome message  in the all company feed when someone joins Yammer?

 

We will have to move to yammer since the SharePoint social feed will be disabled in a few months but as an eduction institution we have each year 10K new students. This will result in a flood of welcome messages twice a year.

I have been told this feature disables for networks larger than 2K users but our school floats under that so I have not seen it actually happen. You might want to verify with support.

You will stop getting those messages once your network passes 1,000 users ... as ours did a while ago ;)

As a workaround you can setup a flow to delete them as soon as they are posted so at least they won't clog up the feed
