Hello all! :smile:

 

The company I work for has been using the Yammer site/app for years now and it works pretty good.

 

As far as the "Company Resources" links panel - is there a way to auto-enable the panel to show all links?

 

There are 10 links shown "by default" in the panel - however if there are any more than 10 - they will be hidden entirely.

 

Most people won't even notice the "9 more links" listing at the bottom. 

 

Is there a way to have the panel open automatically? Or are we beholden to the amount that made sense at the time when they set this up?

 

Adding extra link capacity isn't a complicated thing . . .hopefully the Yammer Gods can find it in their hearts to add the ability to show more!  :smile:

 

Thank you in advance for the help!   = )

I don't believe there is a way to do that.

@promote_kindness It appears that's the current functionality, for better or worse. It's also unclear what happens with the Company Resources in the New Yammer, so I would choose a conservative approach to those links and not rely on them to a great extent until we know more about the New Yammer experience.

Thanks for the help everybody! 

 

However, I guess the answer is "no there is no way to extend it" - and unfortunately if anything "the links might be going away."

 

How would it make sense for Microsoft/Yammer (whomever owns it) to change the Yammer setup to be LESS CONVENIENT? Especially in the age of businesses needing complicated requirements/aerospace standards and other convoluted stuff?

 

Why not make Yammer more convenient on a day to day basis to improve people's lives?

 

It wouldn't be hard to change the system to allow for a higher capacity of links - what's the deal?

 

Honestly, it's MIND BOGGLING that Yammer is so resistant to making things better. :unamused:

 

Regardless, have a great day people!

@promote_kindness I didn't say it was going away - only that it was unclear. We will know soon enough once the New Yammer starts getting into the hands of customers.

 

Why would Yammer (or any service...) take away a feature? One reason would be if it isn't used much and takes up space in the UI.

Hi Kevin, 

 

Thanks for getting back and I appreciate it!

 

Well I guess all we can do is  hope that the "New Yammer" doesn't include REMOVING MORE FEATURES that companies USE and WOULD LIKE TO SEE MADE MORE EXTENSIVE.

 

Yikes. Oh well. Lol. :xd:
