Hard to locate my group’s files
I was asked to use Yammer as part of a smaller group within a national organization. The directors of my group posted many files for us, and “pinned” some of them for easier access. But as far as I can tell, when I access my group through the Yammer app, I cannot access the list of files that our directors have posted and pinned there. Instead, I have to exit the group and use the search function, which has two problems: 1) If I do not know the name of the document I am looking for, I am pretty much out of luck; and 2) the app searches not within my smaller group but within the whole national organization to which my group belongs. So if I search for something like “schedule,” I have to sift through every single schedule document that has ever been posted in the organization. This is a significant hassle, and has discouraged members of my group from reviewing required materials because it is simply too difficult to find them.
There are a lot of things right with this app, and a few small annoying quirks that make it that much more difficult to get work done on iOS. Speaking mostly about the iPad app here: Split screen will not work on iPad: you have an iPhone version, so why do we not have the ability to use that in multitasking view?? Split screen does not work at all currently. File downloading: I commonly download JPG & ZIP files to the files app on iOS, yet for some reason ZIP files are “unavailable” on mobile through the app. If I go to the web I can download, unzip, and retrieve the files right from my iOS devices. Why is the Yammer app the hold up here? The ability to save any files (no matter which format) to Dropbox or the files app would be GREATLY appreciated!
Not bad, but more cumbersome than necessary
I find the group conversations cumbersome and awkward. You have to go through the group to find the conversation and then scroll all the way down each time. Often times my app on the phone will be notified 10 minutes before my desktop app will show that I have a notification. Sometimes the notifications just don’t show up on my desktop. My team is having the same problem. Having used other IM Software, we find this one to be overly cumbersome for no reason. There are far better ways to carry on a group chat and individual chats. As an office 365 business member, I look forward to Yammer increasing its usability so that this can be our main go to in the future. It’s just not there yet.
I been using yammer for about a year now. I love the idea behind it. Helps to build a stronger work community. My company uses it to reward/ knowledge great work down within the company. The new added gif feature is nice. Specially when thanking a worker for a job well done. I would recommend being able to post in multiple groups at once. As my company uses different groups to separate from region to region. But would be nice when your trying to get a message across the whole company.
Learn, share, hear, have fun
Yammer is the first and only social media I’ve accepted to be a part of. I don’t even have a Facebook page. Getting information from within my company and being able to share my views on an internal platform is really good for me. Love it. Totally recommend it to new coworkers and help them sign up and get started. Better than email
Takes the place of the dreaded “all staff emails”
Yammer is a great tool that my company uses very effectively by giving a platform for conversation, file sharing and company updates without an inbox full of all staff emails. Easy to use and efficient, Yammer, when used appropriately saves time and gives a platform for staff wide conversations and file sharing.
Great for school projects!
So, my class is reading this book you’ve probably heard of, The Giver, and we discuss the book every four chapters or so. I just started Yammer today, but I think it’s great so far! It’s good for starting discussions and asking questions about books, and it has many other functions as well!
An adequate discussion board
Yammer is a decent discussion board, but falls well short of what it could, and should be. Microsoft Teams and Slack are better in many ways, the Yammer team should take a look at them, and possibly combine forces with Teams to create a truly great experience. Teams would be nearly perfect if you could record meetings, so it is not ready for prime time either. Surprised at their shortcomings, its not rocket science. Just build what we need, want, and have been asking for for years.
Glad to have new functionality and especially ability to deal with external networks. There’s still a bug when creating a new group where the group name disappears while typing, but overall a big improvement.
Small fixes needed but great platform overall
Need to be able to access files from the app as well as the desktop. Badge app icons and notifications are inconsistent and not always reliable when there are new postings to groups. Other than those small fixes, it has been a wonderful communication tool and resource.
They get it right! This is now a very productive internal business communication tool, that connects with the other prices of the Microsoft software choir in much better harmony. There are still too many voices and overlap though....geeesh. Teams, Yammer, Flow, Planner, oh Skype, Outlook, and they all hold hands and sing Kumbya with Onenote! Yeah, my head is spinning. Yammer is cool though. Use it!
Enhance communication and info sharing
Yammer in general has helped me to ask questions and get information otherwise won’t be available within my company, which is terrific! The only suggestion/problem I have is that it doesn’t allow for customization of how the groups are listed on the page.
Being an online student can often leave you feeling disconnected! Yammers has helped create a community feel to the Grad School experience! We can ask questions, pray for each other and encourage each other when we need it! Overall it’s a great app!
Rating of the phone version
The PC experience is fine. The phone is poor. When alerted in email AND the app is open, it won't go to the ref in that email until you close the app. Then, in spite of being authenticated, you're asked to log in...but that's actually bogus. Just close the request and you're in. That's just poor UX. Then there's the whole UX in the phone. Terrible use of real estate. It's a phone NOT A PC. Figure out how users use it and build to that. Please.
Could be Better
I enjoy using the app but ever so often it directs me to sign in using my work email which isn’t how I am set up in the system. As a retiree, my access is limited and I no longer have a work email, so it becomes frustrating to find where you would actually sign in if you are using a personal email. No apparent instructions. A fix would improve my rating.
