A new-look Yammer with some useful new features is rolling out now. CompanyNet’s subject matter expert James Mackerness takes a look at what’s new.
The long-awaited new user experience for Yammer is rolling out worldwide right now. It’s the same Yammer functionality you already know and love, but with a fresh coat of paint to bring it up to a modern standard.
New Yammer, new features
It brings a couple of changes that bring it into line with the ‘best practice’ role that Yammer should have in your organisation:
- It’s cleaner and slicker, with praise, announcements, polls, and Q&A posts all looking visually distinct.
- Posts can be pinned, and there’s also a new AI-based discovery feed which should help with engagement.
- Groups have been renamed to Communities, and are now pinnable by each user.
