Use the Yammer web part

When you add a modern page to a site, you add and customize web parts, which are the building blocks of your page. This article describes the Yammer web part.

Note: Some functionality is introduced gradually to organizations that have opted in to the Targeted Release program. This means that you may not yet see this feature or it may look different than what is described in the help articles.

If your organization has an active Yammer network (for example: www.yammer.com/contoso.com), you can enhance collaboration by adding Yammer conversations or a Yammer feed right on your page. With Yammer conversations, you can view the top or newest conversations in a Yammer group, and easily transition between your browser and your mobile device.

Add Yammer conversations

With Yammer conversations, you can view the most recent or most popular conversations, post new messages right from your page, and see how many likes and replies a post has.

  1. If you're not in edit mode already, click Edit at the top right of the page.

  2. Hover your mouse above or below an existing web part or under the title region, click Circled plus sign used to add a modern web part to a page , and then select the Yammer web part.

  3. If you are adding the Yammer web part to a team site that has an associated Yammer group, the Yammer group will be detected and added automatically. Otherwise, click Add a Group.

  4. If there is no group selected, use the search bar to search for a Yammer group.

  5. Once you have selected a Yammer group, select one of the following conversation options:

    • Top Conversations: The group's most engaging conversations.

    • Latest Conversations: Group conversations that are new to the reader.

    • Custom: Select specific conversations from the Yammer group to display. This option requires you to go to your chosen Yammer group, copy the URL for the conversations you want to display, and paste them into each field.

After you've published your page, you can create a new post by clicking Post a message. You can also click a post to go to it in the Yammer group, or click View more at the top right of the web part to go to all of the posts in that Yammer group.
