Yammer Desktop - Can I pass it the path to group when it loads?

Regular Contributor

In a browser I can enter a URL directly to a group like the link below.



Is there a way to open the Yammer Desktop client to a group home page rather then the Yammer Home page?  I looked in the registry for a setting without success and I tried running yammer.exe with some parameters (e.g. -help, /help, /?, even the path to the group) without any success.


I didn't see a setting for "Yammer Home Page". 


Thanks - Greg

@Kevin Crossman - You gave me a like for my post but I am sad this this community has little recent activity. The topic of "When to use what" is very popular at conferences and I think that the use case of Yammer for company wide informal knowledge transfer is still very valid.  I found the usage scenario that describes Yammer on ..

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/MicrosoftTeams/teams-overview?ui=en-US&rs=en-US&ad=US to be short, sweet and valid.

I still would like to know if you can pass a group as a parameter to the Yammer rich client, or set a home page target, that pointed to your favorite group.
