Hi, Today I found a strange thing in a post in the desktop app. It said that the post was sent from "yams". Anyone who knows what "yams" is? In the web client (New Yammer) it didn't say "sent from ..." at all.

@Allan Oscarson That's a head-scratcher. This is still classic Yammer, since you're using the desktop app. Microsoft hasn't announced when or if support for New Yammer is coming to the desktop app, though the emphasis these days seems to be in the web/mobile experience and with Yammer inside Teams via the Yammer community app.

@Kevin Crossman Maybe this is just some fun name they used during development/test to track a specific event and then they forgot to take it away?
