We currently have an Office 365 setup and a separate Yammer setup with lots of groups. Currently they are not integrated, we are only using Office 365 SSO. We plan to connect Yammer to Office 365 groups. My question is now,

  • How are the Office 365 Groups created from the Yammer group?
  • What E-Mail address gets teh Yammer group?
  • What happens when we have a Office 365 Group with the same name?

Thanks for the help,

 

Benedikt

  • How are the Office 365 Groups created from the Yammer group? - this happens automatically once your tenant meets all the requirements for O365 Groups connectivity.
  • What E-Mail address gets teh Yammer group? Email addresses in Yammer are based off the group's name (e.g. "Yammer Group" turns into "yammergroup@tenant.com"
  • What happens when we have a Office 365 Group with the same name? then the email address will look like groupname2@tenant.com (both groups can share the same name, but the email address will be different).
