Yammer Document Conversations Rolling Out

Yammer Document Conversations in Office 365, OneDrive and SharePoint

Yammer conversations is the next step in Yammer integration with Office 365, OneDrive and SharePoint. It brings in-context Yammer conversations along-side documents. And not just Office Online docs like Excel, PowerPoint or Word, but over 30+ file types like .mp4, .gif, and others.

Team collaboration very often focuses on documents. How often have you had to have multiple calls and conversations about document edits, updates and changes? Well, it is a whole lot easier to communicate about those documents outside of email and standard (sometimes confusing) document track changes features. Not only that, many document types don’t have any change tracking. Having conversations about documents from within the documents themselves, not only enhances communication, it also improves employee engagement.

This is a pretty sweet addition to improve collaboration. If you were at the recent SharePoint Conference you might have caught a demo of this. The feature is slowly being released to all Yammer & Office 365 customers so expect to live in your Office 365 and Yammer network soon.

With document conversations users can share their ideas and expertise from within the content they are editing or reviewing. I think this is awesome. I can work from SharePoint Online, OneDrive, or Yammer and have access to my content and all of my conversations.

Check out more details here at the Office Blog – I have included a short video on this new feature below.
