Yammer Review

Allows users in different teams to interact in real time. There needs to be access to a channel, without the need to sign in.


What is most valuable?

Integration into SharePoint is a valuable feature as it provides better exposure and access to users.

How has it helped my organization?

It allows users in different teams to interact in real time.

What needs improvement?

There needs to be access to a channel, without the need to sign-in.

Right now, if you are a Yammer channel owner, then you can ‘invite’ people to join it. That invitation would require the other person to accept the invitation and ‘login’ to Yammer. By logging into the Office 365 Portal, you are not automatically logged into Yammer. Yammer is currently run as a separate portal experience instead of a blended service, i.e., in the use case of ‘channels’.

If I embed my Yammer channel into a SharePoint Web Part and you are not logged into Yammer, your will see a block on the screen that says ‘login’.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have used this solution for a year.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

There were no stability issues.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

There were no scalability issues.

How is customer service and technical support?

The technical support was good.

How was the initial setup?

The setup was straightforward.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

It is a part of the enterprise licensing.

What other advice do I have?

  • Test with users
  • Know your use case
  • Get management support for use case
