M365 Changelog: Restrict Yammer Community Posting
MC285022 – This feature allows network admins to manage the conversations that take place in key communities in their network through an admin setting to restrict posting. Once this setting is enabled, only community admins will have the ability to start a thread in the community while members can only reply and react to conversations.
Note: This feature will be default off when released.
This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 87114
When this will happen:
Microsoft expects this rollout to begin in early October and expect the rollout to be fully completed by late October.
How this will affect your organization:
- Network Admins: They are the only ones who can turn this feature on or off within a community.
- Community Admins: They are the only ones who can start a thread in these communities.
- End users: They are unable to see the publisher – they cannot start a thread but can reply or react to posts created by admins.
What you need to do to prepare
No action required but you may want to update your admin documentation as needed.
