The Office 365 team releases a few new exciting updates to Yammer, a enterprise social collaboration platform that facilitates organization-wide communication that makes it easier for team members to gain real-time insight into everything from corporate communications to projects.
A few updates have been made to Yammer, which we’ve summarized below:
Updated Yammer App for SharePoint
Giving a real-time social layer to SharePoint, the Yammer App for SharePoint helps make the SharePoint platform a more engaging and mobile-friendly experience. The Yammer App for SharePoint is available for both SharePoint Online and SharePoint on-premises, and utilizes SharePoint security enhancements to improve sign-in reliability.
Log-in to Yammer from Office 365
Updated user mapping deeply integrates Office 365 and Yammer – when Yammer is the default social setting for Office 365, Office 365 users are mapped into existing Yammer accounts, meaning there’s no need for double authentication when you access Yammer from your Office 365 global navigation bar. Keep in mind, user mapping still doesn’t provide a Yammer Single Sign-On (SSO) experience – Yammer directory sync or Yammer SSO is still recommended.
