Microsoft is rolling out a new feature on Office 365 that will connect Yammer groups to Office 365.

They should be done rolling out to all tenants by March 31st 2017.

It is already enabled on my tenant.

In order to use the connected Yammer groups you will need to Enforce Office 365 Identity on your Yammer Network.

In Network Admin, select Security Settings, then Enforce Office 365 Identity.

Once it will be enabled, you will get a new Office 365 group when you create a Yammer group. This Office 365 Group will be connected to your Yammer group.

You will see Office 365 resources in your new Yammer groups.

From your Yammer group you will have access to

  • In the coming months, Microsoft will replace the Yammer notes with the group OneNote Notebook.
  • When the group is created from Yammer, it will use the Yammer conversations.
  • The Yammer connected group makes it easier to share files from Onedrive to your Yammer group conversations
  • Since the group email address is part of the Exchange global address list, it will be easier to send email to the Yammer conversation.

More information on what you will get with Yammer Connected Groups.
