Recommendations to others considering Yammer

It's a business social network with some light management tools. You still probably need other project management tools, depending n how you run the project (Agile, Waterfall etc)

Social network for work

2018-04-20

I like it because with Yammer I can keep up on what everyone is doing with their projects at work, and it is not as strict as project management software.

Pros

I like that it is super easy to use, you can share ongoing projects, tech news, create groups, reply with gifs (powered by tenor) and much more.

Cons

Yammer is suspiciously similar in layout and use to Facebook. The mobile app also does not have all of the features that the web based version does so it is better to use it through your mobile browser.

best file sharing, communication software for enterprise level

2019-06-24

Just like a social networking software ,group members can post queries/helps etc so that solution to the problem was solved and conveyed over for all. File sharing makes easier for all groups to access it all at once.

Pros

Easy to keep updated all groups in an organization, internal groups can communicate privately. easier file sharing/ communication/ collaboration.

Cons

And if you put your notifications on so you get an email every time something is posted.

Fabulous product for connecting people across the organization

2019-03-26

Overall I am quite satisfied with Yammer, I get upto date notifications on what is going on in the company and I can reach people in different timezones quite conviniently through mobile apps.

Pros

We can get notification for feeds across company regarding promotions, appreciations and milestones across group or company. 4.

Cons

i wont consider this as a disadvantage of software to be honest, if we have proper workflow it will be very useful.

It's Facebook for your company employees

2021-09-08

Yammer is a great networking and collaboration tool for employees, but you need to make sure your employees are willing to use it and follow the best practices you've implemented to keep new content coming in and organized along the way.

Pros

You can create new communities for specific groups, make comments and posts, @ mention other people, upload different media files like photos, videos, attachments, etc.

Cons

Searching or filtering content was never successful.

Social Networking at it's BEST

2019-09-24

The greatest benefit I like is knowledge management sharing.

Pros

Yammer is a great, private, social networking service that really gets the creative juices flowing.

Cons

It can be hard to get folks persuaded to use Yammer if they are using SharePoint. However, I usually can get them to overcome their hesitation but explaining the benefits and how it can work side-by-side with Sharepoint.
