Think about how or the phone must have significantly changed not only people’s lives, but also their workflow. All of these technologies follow one trend, an effort to make global communication real-time.
6 Social is driving a new way of doing business. Accessing information and experts in the traditional org chart structure of is inefficient. You can spend hours waiting for s to come back to you or get forwarded to the right person. Your may not even make it to the right person. With Yammer and social networks you can access people and information much quicker. You can search the network and find the expert or answer you needed that you may not have found via .It is a great idea to share an example of where this has already happened in your organization.Organizations see a 20% to 25% boost in productivity with social technologies such as Yammer.Source: McKinsey, The Social Economy

10 Navigate Yammer Features This section takes ~15 minutes
11 Key Yammer Spaces 1 Home Inbox 2 3 4 Profiles Groups Home Feed, Inbox, Groups, and Profiles are the key pages, so let’s get comfortable with them.
12 Home Feed Review your company’s usage policy 1Review your company’s usage policyBe sure to select the right group when postingTop: Algorithmic feed that shows different things based on your activity. (Proprietary algorithm which Yammer doesn’t share, but is based on user activity)All: Every public message in your network. All company/network + all public groupsFollowing: All messages in groups you belong to (public and private) + conversations that include someone you are following (does not need to be started by them) (except private groups you don’t belong toThe usage policy contains the guidelines outlined by your administrators or community manager in order to ensure proper use of Yammer. Be sure to read this over and follow it at all times.Messages posted here (to my “colleagues”) will go to All Company by default; best practice is to go to the group and then postHome feed is primarily for discovering what’s going on around your companyChoose from Top, All, & Following
13 Inbox Messages Create a conversation See: Announcements 2Create a conversationSee:Announcements@mentions/ cc’sConversations you’ve joined or followedPrivate MessagesYour inbox is where the most relevant messages to you are, so this is for work mode.The following messages will show up in your inbox:Announcements (from all groups you belong to)Conversations you were pulled into by or cc:Conversations you join or FollowPrivate MessagesYou can do two things with conversations in your inbox;1. Mark as unread and move the messages to the top of the Inbox2. Stop Following messages in your Inbox. Messages reappear if you or if someone replies to you
14 Groups See everything Your Groups 3 See Conversations, Members, Files and Notes posted to the group.Groups act as folders and organize everything in Yammer and workspaces for organizing around teams, projects, and any other topics of interest.All Company/Network is the default group and acts as the catch all.The groups you belong to can be found on the left and are automatically sorted based on your activity so that your most interesting groups are at the top. The order of the groups gets much better when you are active in Yammer.

27 Identify Groups to Join Join groups that your colleagues are creatingJoin groups in which your colleagues are having conversations that are relevant to youYou can view All Groups, Suggested Groups, and a list of Groups you’ve already joined when you go to the groups directory which can also be done within “…” > “groups”.Activity ticker will show you when colleagues are joining groups, the feed will show you which group messages are posted in and you can join from there, the groups directory is a great way to see all the groups, and search helps you find groups around specific topics you are looking for.CultureBrowse for groups
28 Join Groups Click Groups to search existing Groups in the network. Browse Groups in the All Groups tab or see suggested groups to join in the Suggested tab.Facilitator’s Note: You can search for existing groups using the Yammer search bar, or browse groups by clicking on the Groups link in the network. This will show you suggested groups to join, groups of which you are already a member, as well as a complete list of all groups. You can browse from here and join groups that are relevant or interesting to you.
29 Create a Group for Your Team Click the to create a new groupAdd a group nameSpecify who should use the group and whyEmphasize the importance of searching before creating a group here. It is important to search in order to reduce duplication of work. If you have a group creation process (like asking for admin approval) then highlight that here.Select Public or PrivateCulture
30 Group Admin Privileges Populate the Group’s Info TabGroup admins can send announcements which are messages that go to everyone’s Yammer inbox and get pinned to the top of their home screen until they have read them. Announcements will send s to users if they are subscribed to group or inbox s.CultureMake Announcements to send a message to all Group members
31 AnnouncementsNetwork Admins can make an Announcement to any group, including All Company.Group Admins can make an Announcement to their group.Group members see the Announcement at the top of the Home Feed and in their Inbox.All Company Announcements generate an to all network members.Only make Announcements when sharing critical or Need-to-Know information.Who can make an Announcement?Network Admins can make an Announcement in any group, including All Company.Group Admins can make an Announcement to their group.How do members receive an Announcement?Group members receive Announcements as a Banner on their Home Feed, and as a Message in their Inbox.All Company Announcements also generate an to all network members.
32 Group Admin Settings Update the Group Image, Name, and Description Manage Group Members and AdminsChange the Group’s Privacy SettingsIf you change the group privacy setting everyone in the group will receive a notification for it.A group image is incredibly important as it tells everyone that the group is official.Best practice is to appoint an additional group admin so that way if one person leaves the company the group is still owned by someoneCulture
33 Start Conversations in Groups Think about which group is most relevant for the post.Share an Update or post another kind of message, like a Poll or Praise.@mention colleagues within the message to send it to their Yammer Inbox.Always make sure you are posting your messages to the right group. Talk about how all messages live in groups - it’s the way permissions are made in Yammer. Anyone can post to and search for public groups, but private group content is restricted to the members of that group.In the text box, you can just capitalize the first letter and start typing someone’s name and Yammer will create a link to their profile and send the conversation to that person’s inbox. You can also cc people the same way you would via by adding them in the +add people to notify section. Often times people ask when you someone vs cc them- just ask how they do this in - it’s the same thought process
34 Before you create a group… Ensure there is not already a relevant group that meets your purpose. Make certain that you can clearly articulate the purpose of the group and measure its success.Identify a person/team to oversee the group’s strategy, content and membership.Before creating a group, you should ask yourself the following questions:What are you hoping to achieve with the group? Is it for a specific project or team? Do you want a specific set of people to use the group or do you want it to be discovered?Are there any barriers in using the group? What do you need to do in order to mitigate them?What would a successful group look like and how are you going measure its success?What are the benefits that the success of this group will bring to others?What are you going to do in order to get this working? What are the critical things that need to be in place? i.e. sponsorship, communication, training, etc.Note that:Building an overly detailed taxonomy can reduce engagement by adding complexity.We don't want to overwhelm new users with a large number of groups, many of which have little to no content.If part of your business strategy is to promote transparency across your organization, stick to a group structure that supports this through use of public groups. Remember that it's easier to create additional groups down the road than removing them. Here you can also enter a link to your own Yammer101 group, New to Yammer group, etc.
35 Set the ToneDocument the goals, expectations, purpose and roles within the group.Illustrate that the group is a place for collaborative sharing among all members.Encourage participation from all membersWelcome new members and ask for them to provide an update upon joining.Creating a group charter is important to outline the goals, expectations, purpose and roles of the of the group, from the very beginning. In the info tab of the group, clearly define key goals, roles of various members and deeper information about the group’s purpose. You may also want to create a Note, outlining group goals and objectives, and encourage group members to add their suggestions to the page. This will illustrate, through action, that the group is a place for collaborative sharing and co-creation among all members. If the group is centered around a project or initiative, begin uploading relevant files and documents to the group — this way, all members will have access to the content they need. Starting the conversation in a group can be difficult when it is in its infancy. As you invite members to the group, welcome everyone and ask for them to provide a status update to the group. This will encourage participation from the beginning and immediately provide insight into other member’s activities.
36 Nurture your Group Always Reply Share Add Context @mention Never leave a post un-answered!Upload Files and Notes to add context.Use Announcements for important updates.Use Notes to capture key conversation points.Share relevant posts to your group.Always ReplyShare@mentionAdd ContextNever leave a post to your group un-answered! If you're unsure of the someone who may know.Add relevant content - Upload Files and Notes to add context to conversations.Use Announcements for important updates that need to reach the entire group. This will prompt an and a notification to all group members, so only use announcements for important updates. Be sure to provide supporting documentation or links.If there are a high number of responses to a post, and a number of outcomes being discussed, suggest collecting everything in a Note. Add others to the note to co-collaborate.If a users posts something relevant to your group to the All Company, use the Share link to share the post to your group. Reply to the post asking if they knew there was a group dedicated to this and you would be interested in hearing more about it
37 Keep the Pulse AliveShare updates on projects to provide transparency into activities.Ensure members understand what to post and where to post it.Mine the group for relevant and insightful conversations to share with others.Cross-pollinate useful information as much as possible.Refresh and update group content on a regular basis.If a group becomes stale, do not delete it! Consolidate the relevant content to another active group and mark the old group as inactive.Encourage group members to share weekly or daily status updates on projects to provide transparency into individuals’ activities. Weaning colleagues off of the “reply all” habit, may be a challenge at first, but understanding what to post and where can certainly help. When you upload information, questions, and files to Yammer, these resources are automatically available for the rest of the organization. This open sharing of information reduces duplication of work and reinforces serendipitous discovery of content. Mine the group conversations for relevant and insightful conversations to share with other areas of the organization. Cross-pollinate useful information as much as possible; this allows for other areas of the organization to have a better view into your group’s work.
38 Successful Groups Have a clear purpose. Tackle a real business challenge with measurable outcomes.Have a logical name, description and info tab.Enable discovery and collaboration across teams.Demonstrate value for participating employees.Have leadership endorsement and participation.Have supporting resources and training materials.Plan & execute engagement events.Effectively transition based conversations to the group.How do you define successful groups within your network? Highlight some examples of successful groups within your own network or behavior you would like to see taking place within groups.
39 Public Groups What’s a Public Group? Engagement Tip: Working in a Public Group is like working in a conference room with all glass walls and an open door.Any employee in your Network can see conversations, Files and Notes in a Public Group.Engagement Tip:Use Public Groups as the default. Create a Private Group only when necessary.Encourage your audience to work out loud. The beauty of Yammer is discoverability and serendipity. Groups should default to being public, unless there is sensitive data or information being discussed within the group. Highlight some examples of public groups that work well in your network.
40 Private Groups What’s a Private Group? Collaboration Tip: Working in a Private Group is like working in a traditional conference room with a closed door.Only employees who have been added as Members can see conversations, Files and Notes in a Private Group.Collaboration Tip:If your team starts out in a Private Group, discuss switching to a Public Group every few months.Encourage your audience to work out loud. The beauty of Yammer is discoverability and serendipity. Groups should default to being public, unless there is sensitive data or information being discussed within the group. Highlight some examples of public groups that work well in your network.
42 Search Before You PostType your query in the search bar and select an auto result……or press Enter and see full resultsUse Advanced Search to search within a specific group or between a date rangeSearch dropdown will give you results based on your spelling and will only pull results from the names of the items.Pressing enter or “see all search results” will bring you to everything. You can see conversations that have that term in them, people who have that term in their profile, groups with that in their description, and files and Notes that have the term in the name as well as the body of the document.If you want to search for multiple terms anywhere just type your terms, but if you want to see a phrase then you will want to enclose them in quotations. For example, searching best practices will give you results that have the term best and the term practices anywhere in them. If you search “best practices” it will only return results that have “best practices” in them (so the terms side by side, vs anywhere in the results).
43 Start Conversations in Groups Navigate to a GroupStart typing in the Share something with this group box@mention colleagues within the message to add the conversation to their Yammer InboxYou can just capitalize the first letter and start typing someone’s name and Yammer will create a link to their profile and send the conversation to that person’s inbox. You can also cc people the same way you would via by adding them in the +add people to notify section.Often times people ask when you someone vs cc them- just ask how they do this in - it’s the same thought process
44 Reply to the Appropriate Person Notify specific people as a cc: or an FYIReply to a specific person within a thread by clicking the Reply link beneath the messageIf you are replying to someone’s message that is not the first message in the conversation, be sure to click the reply button on that conversation so that Yammer will link them together. This allows readers to gain context for the conversation. You can also hover your mouse over the green “in reply to” to show the exact message that person is replying to. This also ensures that your message is delivered. So in this example, if Luisa had chosen to stop following the conversation in her inbox, she would have seen it come back once Tom replied directly to her.
45 Work with Conversations Attach Files and Notes to your messagesLike a message to acknowledge it, like it or say thank youAttach files and Notes to your conversations when extra context is required.Liking a message will send the person a bell notification. Great for telling someone you’ve seen their message when they’ve cc’ed you or for acknowledging great messages.Sharing a message will send the person who authored the message a bell notification but they will not be automatically following the new conversation in their inbox. You can share any part of a conversation to another group or a private message. When you share from a private group to a public group, those in the public group who are not members of the private group will only see the single message that was shared.Share to cross-post the conversation to another Group or in a Private Message
46 Work with Conversations Click the More button to see additional optionsYou should only delete a message if it’s entirely necessary (i.e. if it violates the usage policy). As a best practice, it’s better to correct your initial post with a follow up reply as opposed to deleting the post all together.Only you and a Network or Group Admin can delete your post
47 Add Topics to Conversations Select More > Add TopicReply with a #hashtagTopics help organize conversations. You can follow them and see them by searching or clicking on them from a conversations. Adding them through “more” allows you to see which topics have already been used on the network to prevent duplication. You can rename topics on the topics page if you have similar topics you want to consolidate. You can remove topics from a conversation by clicking the “x” next to them within “more”>>”add topics.”
48 Post Different Types of Messages Polls allow you to quickly get anonymous feedback on up to 10 choicesAsk your audience to give you examples of when they would use this different message typesPraise allows you to recognize your colleagues for going above and beyond with different badgesAnnouncements are for Admins only and go into the inbox of every group member ensuring the update is not missed
49 Bookmark Important Conversations Save conversations for quick reference laterTo add a Bookmark, select More > BookmarkView your Bookmarks from your ProfileYou can view your bookmarks on your profile later and unbookmark them once you’re done using more >> unbookmark. Following a conversation in your inbox will also help you stay on top of a conversation, and it will give you notifications when there are new messages in the conversation (no notifications with bookmarks).
50 Use Keyboard Shortcuts Use these shortcuts to use Yammer even faster!Type question mark (?) [Shift] + [/] to show these shortcutsYAMMER TIP:Create a Note and share on your network for reference
51 Hide Conversations Keep your My Feed free of irrelevant conversations Hover over the thread starter to see the X, and select it to hide conversationAlso if you posted a comment and someone “likes” that comment the thread will reappear in the My Feed.If you are in the thread, the conversation will appear in your Inbox again
52 Translate Conversations Communicate without barriersTranslation needs to be turned on by network admins for the network members to see it. Only messages posted after it has been enabled are able to be translated. You cannot translate your own messages. Messages are translated into your Yammer user interface (UI) language (default is English) and will only translate things not in that language. You can change your UI language on the home screen below all the modules on the right by clicking ‘English (US)”.Click translate to change the message to your Yammer UI language
54 Create Notes Create a Note from the appropriate group Culture Notes belong in groups so go to the group when posting. They are sorted here starting with those marked as official first, and all others in reverse chronological order, unpublished Notes will be at the bottom of the list.Notes are great for brainstorming, taking meeting minutes collaboratively, drafting documents, sharing meeting agendas, and being the TOC for a project among other things.Culture
55 View & Edit NotesEdit this Note to add your comments, ideas and questionsUse Rich Text formattingNotes allow you and 11 other people to edit at the very same time. Each person will be assigned a color and any additions to the Note by them will be highlighted in that color. You can use rich text editing to format your Note. Changes are saved character by character so you don’t need to worry about your browser crashing and you losing work. Publishing the Note sends everyone who follows the note a notification that there is a new version and updates what is displayed when someone views the Note.CultureInvite others to collaborate
56 Link Content & People within a Note Use the links in the upper right to link to an individual, file or Note, or an external link. This is great for creating rough project plans and linking deliverables together. Any Notes and Files linked within the Note will become “related content” to that Note.Culture
57 Related Content is the New Subfolder Use Related Content to connect Notes, Files, and Links instead of subfoldersThere are no subfolders within Yammer groups, but you can use Notes to organize content.Link to another Note or a File to automatically connect all as Related ContentCulture
58 Add & View FilesUse the Paperclip to attach a File or Note to your postHover over a File or Note to Preview it, Follow it, Share it, or Go to itThe paperclip allows you to upload a file from your computer, or attach a file or Note that’s already on Yammer. If the file already exists on Yammer, link to it rather than uploading a new version as it will prevent duplication.When you hover over a file shared in a conversation you get a few options. Clicking ”go to file” takes you to the file’s page.Culture
59 Collaborate with Files View full screen, , or download filesAdd and Reply to in-line commentsAdd Related Files and Notes from other groupsAnnotating the file is great for quick feedback and cutting down duplication. Think of all the pain collaborating on documents via is! (Multiple versions of the same file and comments you need to consolidate, time wasted by reviewers duplicating comments, file size limits in ). Others can see each others annotations and not waste time commenting on something that’s already been done.Maximum file size is 5GB.
60 Upload New Versions of Files Upload a New Version of a fileMark a file as Official if you are the Group AdminYou can upload new versions of files and see the version history. Version history will show you any annotations on it and allow you to revert it to that version.Group admins have the ability to mark things as official which will prevent others from editing the Note or uploading a new version of the file.View the Version History of a file
