Yammer Connector - Support for External Groups
After watching this:
Microsoft Teams and Yammer: Velocity meets community | BRK2147
I went to add the Yammer Connector to one of our Teams with the goal of wanting to get updates from an External Yammer Group the Team should be following. Unfortunately it was here I learned only internal Yammer groups are supported.
Another use case I thought of is say an organization using Yammer to collaborate with customers -> each customer is an external network. In Microsoft Teams having the customer care team being able to receive notifications/posts etc. from customers in external Yammer groups would be awesome.
Please add support for external Yammer groups in the Microsoft Teams Yammer connector!!! :)
We have a company internal Yammer and an Industry external Yammer which I manage - it would be great to have the Teams extension! Is there any idea if this will actually become available?

This would be great. Need to offer our managers a real benefit to Yammer (over Whatsapp). Seeing an External Yammer network in teams would give me some thing to sell.

This would be really useful to share Microsoft Insider program for F&O with my team so I can ensure they re reading the latest updates. At the minute I am having to forward the updates from my email to Teams :(
When will this happen would be vary usefull
agreed on the customer point. having the external customer yammer be able to show up on our internal customer service teams would be great!
The ability to add a corporate Yammer network Group to a tab in Teams is nice, but the ability to add an EXTERNAL Yammer network Group to a tab in Teams would be rather marvellous (and useful). Please see what you can do.
