Office 365 Update: Yammer Dynamic Groups

Today, we are launching Yammer Dynamic groups which will allow you to manage Yammer groups dynamically through Azure AD.

How does this affect me?

You will be able to manage a group based on the following criteria:

  • Role
  • Geography
  • Department
  • Other attributes (role, geography, department, etc.)

Dynamic groups will update automatically as people join, leave, or move within your organization.

Here are the steps to set up a dynamic group in Yammer.

  1. Login to the Azure AD portal (requires premium AD subscription)
  2. Click on groups and select the Yammer group you want to configure
  3. Click on the configure tab and set up your membership rules. Now users in your configured group will update automatically.

What do I need to do to prepare for this change?

There is nothing you need to do to plan for this change. To learn more about supporting dynamic groups in Yammer through Azure AD, please click Additional Information.
