Last week we gathered with customers from across the globe, the majority based in Australia, to have a conversation about Yammer best practices. We had an open-ended conversation with Matt Dodd, Jason Soo, Richard Cartmell, and Pete Johns. Check out the recording of this session below!
The first topic of conversation was the Native Mode migration to Yammer.
What is native mode? We want Yammer to feel native within the Microsoft 365 suite. Here’s a step by step guide for Yammer Native Mode. Overall, we want Yammer communities to feel more “native”. Moving to Yammer Native Mode will make sure your communities are backed and managed by Microsoft 365 Groups. This will provide all sorts of benefits such as having a SharePoint library for Yammer file storage, the ability to run Live Events in your Yammer communities, eDiscovery, Data Retention, and more. Check out this article to learn more about the Microsoft journey in Native Mode.
Additionally, there was further conversation about governance and setting up structure for creating and establishing communities. Pete Johns from NRMA shared a bit about building positive friction into the system. Encourage people to engage with the way that communities are built to last which brings value to the business.
It was a great conversation with good ideas about bringing leaders into the communities in Yammer. Here are a few highlights:
Much like the previous episode, we went around and had as many people as possible share their favorite Yammer campaigns. Listen to the recording for more details about each one. There were so many creative ideas that you can try in your own networks!
Official communities are coming soon in Yammer, and what are the guidelines your organization will enable for these types of communities? Here’s a few that were shared during the conversation...
ANZ will encourage those who apply to be an official community to come up with a content plan, banner, and icon, and identify community managers. They’ll also monitor activity to ensure there are conversations and engagement within the official communities.
Thanks for joining us! Stay tuned for more customer conversations in the coming months.
