I'm looking for a documented process or screenshots for how changes to the Yammer usage policy is pushed out to Yammer users.

 

Specifically I'd like to know:

  • What does it look like?
  • Is it a push or email or 
  • Is it immediate or on next log on?
  • Does everyone get it at once?
  • Do admins get it?

 

The information I could find from MS is more around setting one up, than about how it pushes out to the network.

Hi Rebecca, the usage policy can be a notification that appears in the sidebar and as a pop-up when users join the network which they have to agree to before proceeding in the network. This is configurable:

Here are some examples of what this looks like - https://office365tipoftheday.com/2013/11/14/using-the-usage-policy-in-yammer/

 

Here is a nice guide on the usage policy, with examples and suggestions 

 

https://resources.techcommunity.microsoft.com/link/yammer-usage-policy

 

Plus the documentation, including a sample policy -  https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/yammer/manage-security-and-compliance/set-up-a-usage-policy

 

To add to Cian's wonderful answer, if you update the Usage Policy, it will 'pop up' again for all users the first time they sign into Yammer after the change.
