Bring new Yammer to your organization

Global admins and verified network admins can now control participation in new Yammer for your organization. Please note that only one of these settings can be selected at a time. You can go back and forth between these options but we strongly recommend understanding what selecting and unselecting each setting entails before making that choice.

Administrative Opt-in Settings for New Yammer

Enable the new Yammer as opt-in

This option is the new default setting for your organization. This option ensures that users in your organization are able to see the New Yammer toggle to opt into new Yammer from the classic Yammer experience.

New Yammer Opt-in Toggle

Users would be able to opt out of the new experience at any time, using the opt-out toggle. When users opt into the new experience, they will encounter an opt-in dialog box prompting them to opt into the new Yammer experience. When they click Let’s Go, it opts in the user.

Meet the New Yammer dialog box

If the user clicks Not Now, the user will be taken to the corresponding page on the classic Yammer experience.

Enable the new Yammer as default

Selecting this option would ensure users in your organization are able to see the New Yammer toggle to opt into new Yammer from the classic Yammer experience, and users who have never tried the new experience would automatically be switched to new Yammer.

New Yammer Opt-in Toggle

Users can choose to opt-out of this new experience and go back to classic Yammer at any point.

  • This would not impact those users who have tried new Yammer before and made the explicit choice to opt out of it. These users would continue to stay in the classic Yammer experience.
  • Users who have already opted in through the opt-in toggle are not impacted. These users would stay in the new experience but can opt out at any time through the opt-out toggle.
  • If your organization is completely new to Yammer, and you want all your users to directly move to the new Yammer experience, the Enable the New Yammer as default setting is the one we recommend.

Enable new Yammer for all users with no opt-out option

Selecting this option would ensure users in your organization are in the new Yammer experience and do not see the toggle-out option. This is an accelerated setting to get all users in your organization using new Yammer.


Please note that users can access the new experience through a direct link. If your organization wants to remove all access to the new Yammer you will need to contact Microsoft support. If you remove all access, then users from all networks in a 1:M (1-to-many) scenario will no longer be able to access the new Yammer features.


Q: Why can I not select the Stay in Classic Yammer option anymore?

A: We have removed the option to stay only in classic Yammer as we continue to enhance the new Yammer experience.

Q: Which networks get the opt-in toggle?

A: In some situations, multiple Yammer networks are connected to a single Office 365 tenant. This is called a 1 tenant: many networks (1:M) configuration. All networks attached to the tenant can get the toggle, but each will need to be enabled independently. We recommend that administrators consolidate down to a single network.
