New Design for Yammer Discovery and Digest Emails

Reference ID: MC250899

MC250899 – Building on last year’s interactive email notifications launch from Yammer in Outlook, this release update expands Yammer interactive emails to include daily community digest and weekly discovery emails. Now, Yammer community members will be able to engage and react to Yammer digest and discovery emails directly from within their Outlook Inbox.

This feature will rollout to Outlook Web App, Windows, Mac, and iOS and Android Outlook Apps.

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 66695.

When this will happen

Rollout will begin in late May and is expected to be complete by late June.

How this will affect your organization

Previously, the daily community digest and weekly discovery emails were static and required a community member to click through Yammer in order to reply or react. With this update, Yammer community members can now share, react and reply to Yammer digest and discovery emails directly from within Outlook and are no longer required to click through to Yammer to reply or react. Additionally, this update will increase their productivity and allow them to stay on top of important discussions in Yammer.

Note: This new interactive ability that is accessible through Yammer in Outlook is expected to cause an increase in Seen count numbers (the number of unique users who have seen a Yammer conversation) due to:

  • Increased community engagement.
  • Yammer conversations viewed in Outlook Web App are now counted towards the total seen count.

What you need to do to prepare

This is default on. Users can turn on/off the daily community digest and weekly discovery emails from the Notifications tab in Yammer Settings.

Microsoft recommends that administrators update internal documentation to encourage users to enable the daily community digest and weekly discovery emails to allow users to stay up to date with all activity in the Yammer communities.Additional information
