Yammer stats: active users

New Contributor

Hello everyone. 


I'm struggling with the interpretation of Yammer active users.

Reading the definition, which goes "Any user who has read, posted, or liked a message on Yammer".


I wonder:


1) If I get an email notification about a post and I like it/react to it from the email itself (i.e. without actually accessing the platform) - am I still considered among active users for the selected timeframe?


Any feedback would be greatly appreciated! Many thanks!

Yes, that's an active user (and using the device "other" in the M365 Usage Analytics in the M365 Admin Center).
Many thanks!

Many thanks Kevin! As a follow-up question I'm confused as to how the "active people" metric is computed. I understand the definition but I see some inconsistencies. Meaning, on yammer.com the "active people" count is different than when the csv. file is exported (higher number). See pics below. I assume that when you export the csv, "active people" actually means "active sessions" (I.e. if the same person performs multiple actions then it's counted as >1 active person?). Could you pls clarify this? And, if so, what's in our opinion the best metric/way to obtain the total number of active people over longer periods of time (i.e. one year - since the export goes back to 365 days while stats on yammer.com can only be consulted monthly).Past 7 days, on yammer.comPast 7 days, on yammer.comPast 7 days, exportedPast 7 days, exported
