It appears that Yammer is coming to SharePoint online everyone, and not before time too!
On Tuesday, Microsoft announced that Document Conversations will be coming to SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business. This feature allows you start Yammer conversations within over 30 different file types, including Microsoft office documents, images, and even videos. At the time of writing, the only incompatible file types are folders and Microsoft OneNote.
How does it work?
The yammer conversation pane features to the right of any document opened from SharePoint Online. The pane will look very similar to users of Microsoft Lync/messenger. Simply expand and collapse the pane when it is needed. Write a message and start a conversation with other colleges by mentioning their name/s in the message field. You can also share your document with groups
Collaborate and start conversations, enhance employee engagement and discuss the content without having to leave the application.
The following video below briefly demonstrates document conversations in Office 365.
Microsoft is expected to deploy document conversations over the summer so watch this space!
