Yammer Desktop App Update
MC226941
Major update: Announcement started
Applied To: All
As announced at Ignite, we will be bringing the new Yammer experience and capabilities to our current Yammer Desktop App users. We will be retiring the Yammer Desktop Application mid-2021. We will be releasing a new installable Yammer Desktop experience that will have the new Yammer for existing Desktop users to use, which is where we will continue to invest our development resources.

[Key Points:]

  • Major: Retirement
  • Timing:
    • New Yammer Desktop experience: Will be available at the end of March 2021.
    • Retirement of current experience: This will occur in mid-2021 and we will communicate additional timing details via Message center.
  • Action: Review and assess

[How this will affect your organization:]

If your organization has current Yammer Desktop usage or plans to start using the current application soon we want to make sure you are informed about these upcoming changes. Once the new installable Desktop Application is released we will still allow users time to transition over from the existing experience. During this time we will continue to support the existing experience and address high priority items until it is officially retired.

[What you need to do to prepare:]

To prepare for this change we recommend starting to make users in your organization aware of what is coming and as we prepare to release the new Desktop experience we will provide more details on how you can help your users transition as well as a concrete timeline on when we will retire the current experience.

You can learn more about the new Yammer experience in this downloadable PowerPoint deck: What’s new in Yammer?

Changing default folder provisioning language during Known Folder Moves
MC226548
Major update: Announcement started
Applied To: All
Known Folder Move must provision new folders on the service when the corresponding folders (Desktop, Documents, Pictures) do not exist. When creating these new folders, it has to pick a language in order to name these folders. With this change we will default to the Windows Display Language rather than use the OneDrive Site language. As a result, newly provisioned folders will be created and named in the Windows Display Language.

NOTE: this message is for IT admins managing the OneDrive sync app in a Windows Server enterprise environment that uses Active Directory Domain Services.

[Key Points]

  • Timing: December 10, 2020
  • Action: Review for awareness

[How this will affect your organization]

Any new Known Folder Moves that you are planning to do in a multi-lingual environment will use the Windows Display Language when provisioning new folders on the service. If you wish to avoid this you can pre-provision these folders on the service before Known Folder Move.

[What you need to do to prepare]

You may consider updating your training and documentation as appropriate.
