    Pros
    Yammer is a great way to share info with your colleagues - whether it is a fun fact of the day or reinforcing important messages/due dates.
    The perfect tool for setting up work channels. Easy to use, ability to create a number of different groups, can be linked through Microsoft Teams which is a great bonus.
    We used this product while working with UK team. It was making our work fun & I could say it was a really helpful to build a better relationship with the overseas team while carrying out our work.
    Cons
    Everything becomes lost in between groups, it's difficult to remember who posted what where.
    I feel that this app offered from the many by Microsoft has just been left behind a bit. With Teams now being the boom, I believe Yammer will tend to die if it is not implemented within Teams.
    Sometimes having too many tools in the O365 makes it confusing for users to follow up on. Found that deleting posts may be a challenge.

    A great application to keep communicated

    Reviewed 2 months ago
    Pros

    What I like about this application is Yammer is fully equipped to act as a central contact of contact and communication in my network. We have an international set (scattered) of people on my network and we choose Yammer in our communication center. We create a commercial space for each working group and another for our coordination team. Not only do we use group spaces, but also the messages between the members of the Yammer group are extremely effective and safe. We can write to individuals or create groups for continuous communication in the hammer. Therefore, although we must maintain the security of the information in the part of the world we use, we trust the aspects of security. I also use the iOS Yammer application to access my account and messages.

    Cons

    What I do not like about this application is the user interface is not rich and it seems and considers that it should improve. I'm not sure, but a little time is suspended. In addition, it is not very difficult to seek publication. It becomes more confusing again when several groups are created.

    You're safe with Yammer.

    Reviewed 19 days ago

    For me, the ability to communicate with my teammates and exchange ideas simultaneously is very useful.

    Pros

    When it comes to corporate communication, data security is a major concern. Yammer solved more than just our privacy concerns. There is no way for third parties to access our data. It provides us with a place to announce activities, discuss concerns, and share ideas.

    Cons

    There are no huge dislikes, but Yammer's editing capabilities are limited. I would prefer if I had the option to easily move posts up, highlight them, or add more prominence to them.

    Reviewed 25 days ago
    Pros

    This tool adds the social networking and interaction part with "public channels" to the microsoft suite. This aims to complete the portfolio of apps for business collaboration.

    Cons

    I still don't understand the purpose and utility of this app, and I don't really feel the need to use it yet, but my company occasionally offers content through these channels.

    The standard network for business communication

    Reviewed 2 months ago

    In general, I have had an excellent experience with Yammer, it has everything you ask for from a collaborative tool and has the bonus of being part of the Microsoft ecosystem, which is possibly one of the most powerful in the entire market. It is a 100% recommended platform for any audience.

    Pros

    Yammer is a Microsoft platform and it has all the good things about this type of tool, it is very flexible, it has a lot of integrations with third parties, it works fast, it works on any device, it is safe and reliable, the updates are up to date, etc. Yammer is an excellent collaborative tool, that is its main function, it applies from small groups to gigantic companies, it is a platform designed for collaborative work and its tools and interface make it noticeable, it has a fairly formal but very well optimized interface. In addition, it is an excellent program for internal communication and transferring files. Yammer is a 10/10 platform.

    Cons

    The platform's advertising is very invasive, from the many emails that arrive, from unnecessary notifications to the phone, etc. The interface, although it's fine, is quite boring, it works well, but it doesn't encourage you to spend a lot of time on the platform.

    Combined with microsoft world. This tool has changed many lives. It makes you connected

    Reviewed a month ago

    I am quite satisfied. User interface is good. Connectivity is mind blowing. Communictaion with others is easier than ever. What else is required. Even they have mobile app as well.

    Pros

    It has a strong sync with Microsoft office products especially to control & manage the data you have in onedrive & sharepoint. I believe that is the only tool you need during work. Good for those who have Microsoft family products in their offices

    Cons

    It can do much better than Meta and yet it is still far away from achieving it. It can be a whole universe.
