MC379026 – Microsoft is pleased to announce that the next phase of the new Yammer experience rollout is a month away. With this change, all users will access the new Yammer experience, and the toggle for classic Yammer will be removed. Admins can still switch to the classic Yammer experience via a new toggle in the Yammer admin settings. 

Key points

advertisment

  • Timing: Microsoft will begin rolling this out in mid-June and expect to complete rollout late June. 
  • Action: To get the most out of the Yammer experience, Microsoft recommends enabling the new version of Yammer now for all users and review the changes and assess the impact on your organization.
  • Roll-out: tenant level

How this will affect your organization:

The new Yammer powers leadership engagement, corporate communications, communities, and knowledge-sharing in Microsoft 365. In addition to migrating all the key functionalities from the classic version to the new version of Yammer, these are some new features that Microsoft has implemented based on your feedback:

  • Nested replies
  • New profile page
  • Bookmarks
  • Dark mode
  • Upvote answers to Yammer questions
  • Editing attachments

For end users:

You will no longer be able to opt-out of the new version of Yammer.

advertisment

For admins:

As a default the new Yammer will be enabled for all users, but admins can still switch back when needed to the classic Yammer experience, through the Opt-out option.

This option is already available for all networks and can be changed in the admin settings in the “New Yammer” module. The current active option enables the new Yammer as a default for everyone, now the default option, will enable the new Yammer for all users with opt-out option only for Admins.

Additionally, you may consider updating your training and documentation, as well as sending out change communications within your organization as appropriate.
