We tried to integrate into SharePoint, but it was not really efficient.Yammer should be able to integrate with Microsoft products, such as Outlook.The solution must be able to stream by itself, without integration, the same way that you are able to do it on Facebook Live, Instagram, etc. Streaming must be embedded into it.This solution would be improved if it was well integrated with other communication applications.I would like to see a fancier user interface.
