Join Gini von Courter for an in-depth discussion in this video Bookmarking a conversation, part of Yammer Essential Training.
Perhaps you have recently joined an organization that had an established Yammer network. Or your Yammer network is relatively new. But as more and more people begin using Yammer your home feed here is going to move more and more quickly. This is late in the evening on a weekend so I'm not seeing a lot of action but tomorrow morning this is going to fire back up again. When people start reporting to work. First on the east coast in our more remote offices.
And then more and more speed as the west coast comes on board for our headquarters. So I'll see a message fly by and I'll just want to go wait, wait. Hang on a second. I want to take a screen cap of you or I want to print you and put you on my bulletin board. I don't want to hear about you in my inbox forever but right now I want to grab this message. And not lose track of the fact that it exists. And that I want to know something more about it. An example of that is this conversation for me that's going on in Sales and Marketing right now that Rob Molina kicked off.
This is great. It's a great idea for Sales and Marketing but it crosses over into my area too. So what I'm going to do is I'm going to click More and bookmark this. Note I have a banner that says the message has been bookmarked great. And I had another similar message that came up in the Region East Sales Meeting conversation. And this is about Lisa's hopes and aspirations for this meeting. I don't want to lose track of this.
I'm going to bookmark it. And I think okay fine. How do I get back to my bookmarks? Well that's cool. We go to our Profile. And here are conversations I'm participating in. Files that I have had something to do with uploading. Images that I've uploaded and so on. And if I click More and Bookmarks I will find items that I've bookmarked. Right here. So bookmarking is a great tool. Because it allows me to take a message. And sit it aside so that I can return to it and follow up.
Or because I know it's important. But it's just not important right now in this minute. So whether you use following more. Or you use bookmarking more these are two different ways for you to stay engaged with important conversations happening in Yammer.
