Overall Satisfaction with Microsoft Yammer

My entire organization adopted Microsoft Yammer as a part of our shift to using the new suite of Office 365 applications exclusively. Microsoft Yammer has helped to streamline communication and collaboration across different organizations and serves as one of the primary ways that people connect on a range of projects, programs, and other initiatives. In addition, associates use the tool for discussion around general topics, shared interests, and to ask questions.
  • I enjoy being able to see an entire conversation thread between associates and that those comments and responses found a most useful filter to the top of a conversation.
  • I like the additional features and functionality you can leverage within Yammer such as "Announcements" and how well Yammer groups integrate with respective SharePoint sites it might be associated with.
  • Yammer is very easy to navigate and is user-friendly, making it easy to scale to new users who are not familiar with the platform.
  • While Yammer is easy to use overall, it does have some quirks and can be a little limiting in what you can do within the app itself.
  • I think Microsoft Yammer has had a positive impact on my organization and has helped foster great collaboration leading to improved business process agility and outcomes.
There are few good alternatives to Microsoft Yammer that serve up the same functionality and allow for networking to the same extent. Prior to Yammer, we used an internal tool which was clunky and did not meet our companies needs. Yammer has proven to be much more successful and user-friendly and has been widely adopted as a result.
Yammer helps spur collaboration and networking across our entire organization. We have associates that work at several locations across the globe so Yammer serves an important function in bridging the distance between people. Microsoft Yammer is thus well-suited to bring different groups of stakeholders across different organizations and locations together to collaborate around shared initiatives or interests.
