Beginning January 2017, when a new Yammer group is created, a corresponding Office 365 group will be created in Azure Active Directory, and Office 365 Group resources will be provisioned. This rollout is expected to be completed by the end of March 2017.
How does this affect me?
Going forward, you will be able to manage Office 365 connected Yammer groups in Azure Active Directory, similar to other Office 365 groups. Also, each new group created in Yammer will get an associated SharePoint site, SharePoint document library, OneNote notebook, and a Planner plan. Note that this will only affect customers who have enforced Office 365 identity for Yammer users, and who are in the ‘One Office 365 tenant associated with one Yammer network’ (1 tenant:1 network) configuration.
