Yammer community creation issue

New Contributor

Hello. I have an issue creating a new Yammer community. I had one previously, which I had deleted. Now I try to create a new one with the same name, but the system tells me that a community with this name already exists. When I try to search for it on Yammer, no community with such name appears. How can I reinstate the one that was deleted or create a new one with the same name?

Guessing this might be related to when Microsoft 365 Groups (which back Yammer Communities) are deleted they are recoverable for 30 days. So while the group is deleted it won't let you reuse the same name during that 30 day period. Those are coverable in M365 admin center / Azure AD.

Thank you! @Kevin Crossman
