Latest news about Yammer

I often say that Yammer is the “digital coffee machine” where everyone in the organization can meet in order to discuss interesting topics without having to consider  organizational units.

I do not really know how my working day would look if I did not have access to Yammer to ask questions to my colleagues and find and spread tips and tricks and solutions. In my case, when working as a consultant, you are often alone with the customer and then it is very valuable to have access to all my competent colleagues in one and the same forum.

Here are some of the latest news in Yammer in case you missed them. I have sorted them based on what I think is most interesting/useful.

  1. Rich Text Formatting
  2. Yammer Tab in Teams
  3. Yammer Conversations Web Part (in SharePoint)
  4. Live Events in Yammer
  5. Microsoft Search in Bing Preview includes Yammer conversations

Read more about it all in the article Recent Innovation in Yammer.
