    1+ for this @EduTech ? Can't find how to switch it on in our office365 portal. Is it availability yet or not. If so how do we access on A2 plan?

    If you go to Sharepoint Admin site , then settings . It will have option to change newsfeed for users to Yammer service under Enterprise Social Collaboration

    This only changes the link from the Newsfeed page to the Yammer home page. I doesn't matter if you have Yammer in or outside of Office 365 for this link. You know that Yammer has been added to your tenancy when it appears in the Current Health option.

    Still no official date coming out of Microsoft yet but hoping it's not long.

    Hi,

    If you login to Office 365 Dashboard and then go to Included Services do you see the option to Activate Yammer Enterprise?

    We haven't got that link yet. We contacted MS support and they advised that although the rollout of Yammer Enterprise was beginning this spring it would only gradually be available to all customers.

    I don't see that option in my Included Services.

    Is there any way to get pushed up the list of Microsoft office365 A2 tenants to get the Yammer Enterprise service integration?

    It's not available just yet - there's no ETA at the moment. Very soon is the best we can say...

    We have Sharepoint A2

    Our students' user names are student@school.onmicrosoft.com but as they are primary school students I have not enabled their Exchange licence so emails sent there don't get received.

    This wasn't a problem in Sharepoint because when I bulk create users I get an on-screen notification of password

    How can I add these users to Yammer without email authentication?

    Thanks - Simon

    just noticed its been enable on our portal.

    We want to enable both of our domains onto one Yammer network? i.e. xxxx.cumbria.sch.uk and pupil.xxxx.cumbria.sch.uk - is there anyway of doing this? Seemingly only been able to activate one domain through Office 365 admin centre,

    I'm just going through this myself, you need to open a ticket through Office 365 service requests (you should now see a Yammer option in the service request dropdown).

    I'm interested to hear how people are planning to use Yammer with staff? We are looking into it now.

    Do you also have a VLE? Do you think the two would overlap?

    Answers on the back of a postcard and all that Cheers
