We're back to round off our Yammer tips this month. We found last month's article was greatly received and appreciated by many of our clients trying to engage their colleagues in the Yammer experience. As a result we're going to be highlighting useful tips and tricks for other Microsoft applications.
  1. Use the praise feature! There’s no better way to show recognition to someone in your team or company that’s doing a great job
  2. We’re all used to the Out of Office feature in Outlook but to make it clear you’re unavailable in Yammer, go in to your Yammer profile and add (OOO until xxx date) after your surname, it will then appear as part of your name each time someone mentions you
  3. Download the Yammer app on your mobile phone, the apps are generally as feature rich as the browser version but I find it’s a quick an easy way to keep track of Yammer when I’m on the move
  4. Take a look at your Yammer Analytics – it’ll give you a good idea of how Yammer is being used and how engagement is growing over time
  5. Create an ‘Ask Anything’ group. This is one of the best groups we’ve created and is one of our most used, it provides an open forum to the whole company to post any question they might have on any topic – it’s sometimes tricky to find the correct group to post a question in or the question really might not require it’s own group. This provides an area for anything and everything. A couple of examples of recent questions posted in our Ask Anything group, Microsoft Project use, read-only files, camera recommendations and even a request for headache tablets!

Yammer Tips - Part 1

Yammer, perhaps known in your circle of friends as "Facebook for work", is maybe the most under-appreciated collaboration and community tool in Microsoft's product shelf. We at ClearPeople are massive fans of the application and feel it's helped us realise our digital workspace goals and define our online culture in a way we couldn't have done otherwise.
