What is Yammer?

What is it?

Yammer is a social networking tool where members of the University can discuss ideas, share updates, and crowdsource answers from coworkers.

What do I use it for?

Yammer lets you easily create groups, or communities of practice, where people can discuss a particular topic and connect to and follow colleagues. It tends to be used fairly informally, for quite large groups, and people may not read Yammer posts every day. 

If you have a smaller group and need additional features, such as easy access to online meetings, sharing other apps, such as Planner, etc you may want to use Microsoft Teams instead. 

Who is it available to?

Yammer is available to all University staff and students

How do I access it?

You can access Yammer from the Office 365 portal https://office365.leeds.ac.uk


Microsoft Yammer training is available via LinkedIn Learning and is free for all staff and students.
