  • Good stuff. Thank you sir. May I have another?

  • Good tips but I have another one addressing a problem recently happened on yammer and is related to number 4.
    Don’t send a post to too many people via the CC function.
    This might bug people. Especially not if you post to a group where the people are already in.
    The problem is that you will always get an email of every reply. The only chance to escape this thread is by actively unfollow the conversation.

  • Agreed. They need a lot of improvements to messaging, and rumor has it that we’ll have some news in the messaging category at SPC14 in March.

    I don’t understand Yammer users. There are so many solutions that are better, free and have more tools (Bitrix24, Asana, etc). Why would anyone (willingly) use Yammer?

    Good tips Christian, I am posting to our Yammer Tips Group on our network as we speak. Thanks for sharing

  • Hi Christian, does the double dash work on the free Yammer, Enterprise Yammer or both. On the free version I have tried adding the – -, and even — at the end of my email before the signature but the images from the signature still get uploaded to Yammer.

  • Good question. Not sure, as I have the paid version. But you could go onto yammer.com/spyam and ask one of the dozens of CSMs who participate in the site to answer your question. For example, ping Noah Sparks.

  • thanks for your update
