You can now see Yammer community notifications within Microsoft Teams

Microsoft is rolling out support for Yammer community notifications within Microsoft Teams. The new functionality allows people to get notifications for announcements in communities and @ mentions in conversations. Microsoft released the Communities app for Microsoft Teams last year, which brings Yammer communities and conversations into Teams.

Once you’ve installed the Communities app onto Microsoft Teams, you’ll receive Yammer notifications within the Teams Activity feed. This functionality works across platforms, including the web, desktop, and mobile.

Microsoft shares some examples of how this feature could be used in a Tech Community post:

  • Large scale announcements such as policy updates, safety information, and organizational change
  • Frontline workers and mobile employees who need to access important information and conversations with headquarters from mobile devices
  • Employee communities that span departments such as new employee onboarding, and diversity & inclusion communities
  • Functional communities that connect people to crowdsource solutions, ideate, and share with coworkers (example: hackathons, events, kickoffs)

In order to use the Communities app, an organization needs to go through its custom policies to deploy the app and pin it for users within departments.

The Communities app is very similar to the new Yammer experience, except that it’s within Microsoft Teams. Microsoft explains how to install the Communities app onto Teams and how to set it up within an organization on a support page.
