About Yammer

This article applies to: Office 365 Productivity Bundle

Yammer is a social network in Cornell's Office 365. It can help you to:

Work in groups more easily and efficiently.
Have discussions without long email chains or setting up a meeting.

Share knowledge.
Show what you're working on, find out what others are working on, and discover who else is investigating the same subject you are.

Find interesting conversations and join in.
Yammer is designed to help foster spontaneous conversations and discoveries. You can also bring in other people you think might be interested by mentioning them.

Stay organized.
Your Inbox is a single place to follow the mentions, group announcements, conversations and private messages that you’re a part of. Track the messages that need immediate responses in Priority Messages, and save others to read later in Unread Messages.

Search and discover.
Yammer helps you find the right people, documents and conversations you need to get your best work done. You can stay informed of Cornell activity, find related conversations and groups, and search content, people, and files.

Get Started
