Connect to Yammer


Effective February 2022, support for Microsoft 365 Groups (previously known as Office Groups) and Yammer in Dynamics 365 will be deprecated. This will impact customers who use Microsoft 365 Groups and/or Yammer for collaboration in Dynamics 365. We recommend that customers transition to Microsoft Teams for more advanced collaboration functionalities. For information about integrating Dynamics 365 with Teams, see Integrate customer engagement apps in Dynamics 365 with Microsoft Teams.

If you've questions about the deprecation, contact your Microsoft Customer Service representative or Microsoft Partner.

Yammer gives colleagues at your organization a central place to have conversations, create and edit documents, and share information without sending a single email or attending any meetings.

After you set up your organization to work with Yammer, employees will see posts in a newsfeed on their customer engagement apps dashboard whenever people update customer info, and they'll be able to join in the conversation with their own posts.

Connect your organization to Yammer


  • Before your organization can use Yammer in customer engagement apps (Dynamics 365 Sales, Dynamics 365 Customer Service, Dynamics 365 Field Service, Dynamics 365 Marketing, and Dynamics 365 Project Service Automation), your organization needs to buy Yammer enterprise licenses.

  • Yammer integration is only available for customer engagement apps.

  • Make sure you have the System Administrator security role or equivalent permissions in Microsoft Dynamics 365.

  • You'll also need to have verified system administrator privileges for your organization's Yammer account.

  • Install the most recent product updates for customer engagement apps.

  • Meet browser and system requirements.
