Add a Yammer feed to a Skype Meeting Broadcast

A Skype Meeting Broadcast is an online meeting or event intended for large audiences of up to 10,000 people.

By adding a Yammer feed to your meeting, you enable attendees to participate by asking questions and posting comments. Presenters and other participants can read the posts as they come in and respond to them in real time. This also allows for dynamic meeting content because a presenter can be alerted via Yammer that more elaboration or clarification is needed and can elaborate more thoroughly on the topic at hand before moving on to the next item on the agenda.

Prerequisites

Before adding a Yammer feed to your Skype Meeting Broadcast, make sure:

  • Your company has a Yammer network. See Setting up your Yammer network for more information.

  • The Yammer group you're setting up for the Skype Meeting Broadcast is open or has the same security group as the one you're inviting to the meeting. See Yammer admin guide for more information.

  • In some browsers, such as Internet Explorer 11 or Safari, Yammer might not load successfully. To resolve this:

    • For Internet Explorer, click Internet Options > Security. Clear Enable Protected Mode, and then click OK.

    • For Safari browser, click Preferences > Privacy. Under Cookies and website data, select Always allow.

    Refresh your browser to reload the page with the new settings.
