Create a Microsoft Team based on a Office 365 Group created in Yammer
Office 365 Groups is supposed to be a single definition for a Group across all Office 365 services. However, Microsoft Teams cannot be based on Office 365 Groups created in Yammer. Please fix this so that Yammer Groups and Microsoft Teams are more tightly integrated. Fragmentation of Office 365 Groups will result otherwise.
Stephen White commented
Couldn't agree more. I have created the same group in both Yammer and Teams, one for broad discussion and one for closed discussion respectively. Now I have 2 SharePoint sites, 2 OneNote notebooks, etc, it's a mess. We need to be able to join the SharePoint group between the two chat interfaces.

This seems like a no-brainer. Please add this feature.
Ryan Condie commented
This would be very helpful. This is very frustrating.
Mark Moore commented
Agreed. this is a massive issue and a poor implementation of yammer integration into the wider toolset
Philip Austin commented
This surely needs to happen? Regardless of where the Group is created such as in Yammer, the Office 365 group should then be available to Microsoft Teams.

For those of you that are interested, I've proposed an alternate solution, just give O365 admins the ability to block Yammer from having groups, but allow Outlook to have them.
Even though this is different, I voted for this one because what I care about the most is seeing Microsoft do anything useful to resolve this.

This is needed or it's a huge block to Teams adoption.
I agree. This would be extremely helpful.
Dan Bradley commented
I've just come across this. This is a massive barrier for us for adoption and our customers. Please fix.
Julien HACQUARD commented
I confirm it's always the case today. Really frustrating.
Brian Reach commented
I feel like Teams has all the things that Yammer's new group feature was SUPPOSED to have (files in sharepoint, chat, planner) - I'm so confused about why O365 is introducing a new thing instead of just fixing the old one and having a new interface. I really hope they get on this fast!

This is possible today with groups created via Exchange. Same rule should apply for groups created via Yammer.
