After you have completed all six steps of your planned Yammer rollout, you may want to learn how to embed a Yammer group discussion into a team site. For example, you may want to enhance the New Products team site by adding a Yammer New products group discussion on the team site home page. Teammates do not have to switch pages to keep up with and contribute to the group discussion.

Your browser does not support video. Install Microsoft Silverlight, Adobe Flash Player, or Internet Explorer 9.

Try it!

  1. On the app launcher App launcher button , click Yammer.

  2. In the list of groups, navigate to the group you want to embed, such as New Products, and then click the group name to display it.

  3. Locate the ACCESS OPTIONS box on the right, and then click Embed this feed in your site.
