Adding Members to Groups in Yammer

www.office.com/setup Blogs: We use Yammer as a broadcasting tool, like a Twitter, but private to our company. Yammer allows you to create groups, so that you can broadcast some messages to subsets of your team. For example, at Webucator we have a Trainers group for messages that are only relevant to trainers.

In general, their help is pretty good, but the Yammer’s documentation on groups doesn’t address how to add members to a group and, oddly enough, it’s not very intuitive in the admin interface. Follow these steps to add a member:

  1. Click on the Groups tab.
  2. Click on the group name (e.g, Trainers).
  3. Click on the Invite Members tab.
  4. Add email addresses for those people you would like to invite.
  5. If you would prefer to just add the members, rather than invite them to join, check the Add these members without an invitation checkbox.
  6. Click Invite.

Easy enough, once you know how to do it. It’d be nice if they would allow you to add the member to a group through the member’s profile page, sort of like you can with the Gmail administration.
