Hello,

 

what roles in admin center we need to assign to user who shloud be able to create Yammer communities? We have disabled creation of group for our emloyees. I tried to add "Groups admin" role but user don't see option to create community.

 

Is it possible to have user who can create Yammer community without having Global admin role?

 

Thank you

MV

If you've disabled Group creation then what you'd need to do is to only allow groups to be created for users on a security group.

Thank you for response! It works now! But My first try was to make Security group but it didn_t work. User hasn't got permissions to create group even after hour of wait. But when I created M365 Group and applied PowerShell then it worked in 5 minutes.

 

Thank you, it's solved!
