Overall Satisfaction with Microsoft Yammer

We used Yammer for departmental communication and collaboration. It helped us organize related project ideas and notify each other of changes. Now Microsoft Teams has mostly replaced the work we used to do in Yammer.
  • Social tagging
  • Organization of project ideas
  • File sharing
  • Seems less robust than Microsoft Teams
  • One more communication tool to use
  • Notifications don’t always work
  • Sped up communication between groups
We now use Microsoft Teams for chatting and project communication and it is more effective than Yammer. I do not find a use for Yammer any longer.
The how-to and help information was always helpful but I never needed to contact Microsoft.

Do you think Microsoft Yammer delivers good value for the price?

Not sure

Are you happy with Microsoft Yammer's feature set?

Yes

Did Microsoft Yammer live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of Microsoft Yammer go as expected?

I wasn't involved with the implementation phase

Would you buy Microsoft Yammer again?

No

Yammer makes sense when you need to quickly collaborate with different groups of people. It probably makes less sense if you already use a similar platform or if you need a more robust project management/file storage option.
