Overall Satisfaction with Microsoft Yammer

Yammer is basically being used as a corporate Facebook company wide. It is being used for sharing important news, updates, project wins, milestones achieved by the organization, all at one place.Yammer provides an effective way to communicate to a large group of people at one time. It has brought our organization closer together.


  • High-level security and message and content tagging
  • Integration with Microsoft Office 365
  • Private Messaging
  • Can invite external members (e.g., clients and partners) to collaborate.
  • Customization are not enough
  • It seems to be pretty public. Everyone in our organization can see what everyone posts.
  • File sharing is limited - no level of classification
  • It has brought the employees closer to each other irrespective of their geographical localtion
  • Drastically reduced the load on mail servers as Yammer is now the first tool to send updates & notifications
  • Effective team communication and collaboration
I have used Salesforce chatter, it lags at the customization end. Yammer stands out as the integration with Microsoft products is seamless.
We no longer need to send multiple messages when an urgent communication is needed- for example- an outage, a scheduled or unscheduled service disruption notice or any other important announcement.
We have not clearly defined the needs of this tool to the employees.
Older employees still stick to emails.
