Connecting Colleagues

Very useful airing ideas regarding work, sharing news within the organization real time. It is awesome to be updated from anyplace of the company that I am working with.

Pros

You can air your ideas with in the organization on this app, you can communicate with your office mates share thoughts of the day. You can hear news from other branches of the Organization that I am working at right now.

Cons

It just double function with Skype Business, I both use Yammer and Skype in communicating with my office mates.

A smart collaboration platform

A new collaboration platform.

Pros

Yammer is nicely intertwined into the Microsoft portfolio, such as Skype and OneDrive.

Almost superfluous

2018-03-14

The company can create cross-functional groups that can help with collaboration. It helped some of our employees "meet" others so they knew who to go to for specific questions.

Pros

I think there is a lot of functionality that we're not quite leveraging. But I know it can map into our CRM and link records really easily for IT to look at. We are currently using it almost like a forum.

Cons

We have Skype, so we don't use the chat function at all.

Unclear application

2018-01-16

Pros

Very familiar interface, just like any social media platform. It is fun, and allows for things like liking and commenting on posts.

Cons

For conversations within a team, you will use Conversations within a team, Skype, or the Teams App.

Internal Facebook for Companies

2019-04-12

Pros

It was nice for sharing quick news/information with employees, collaboration opportunities, simple Q&A, and could be used for both professional and personal reasons, but was all easily monitored by the corporate employer.

Cons

We already have internal tools like email, skype for business, texting, calling... this was just another mechanism to communicate and I'm not sure it addressed any specific needs, or cannibalized other communication methods, instead just adding to employees' plates.

OK for a corporate social network, lacks richness to be really useful

2018-06-29

Pros

As a user of yammer as part of the O365 suite on a large corporate network, I find it can be useful for some level of random communications (discussing industry relevant events) and getting to know the existence of people across an international organisation.

Cons

It would be much more useful if Skype for business could connect directly to it can people could chat in a group instead of separately.

So it came free with Office 365, but why haven't you tried it out?

2018-02-06

Pros

I FAR prefer the enterprise resources to Microsoft's other product, Skype.

Cons

Nothing. Its easy, sign on, and I've yet to find any end user that had trouble navigating it. Its simple, intuitive, and free!

Unique Social network for corporates

2019-02-24

We have used this for solution seeking where we put our request or query and we get response with what people know about it or sometime we get perfect solution too. Apart from work related, we also share the cool pics related to the happening or team events or festivals celebration. Also, polls are conducted to seek the feedback from colleagues about new change in the company or changes that is needed.

Pros

We have Office365 at our company, next to Skype the other app that is extensively used is Yammer for collaboration.

Cons

User Interface is not rich and looks and feels needs improvement. Not sure but it hangs for me quite number of times. Also, little difficult to search for a post or feed. It becomes more confusing once more and more groups are created.
