Join Gini von Courter for an in-depth discussion in this video How Yammer is evolving, part of Yammer Essential Training.
Yammer lives in the cloud. It's a web based product. And all web based products bring something distinct to the software world that many of us have worked in. We have new products available all the time, whether we know it or not. And even whether we like it or not. But with Yammer, most of the time, I like it for a reason and I'll talk about in a moment. But each time I log in, I could have a slightly different set of features. And when a feature is removed from the set or replaced with something else, I don't get to keep my old version.
Because each time I log in, I'm getting whatever is being delivered to me as the version of Yammer that I'm getting that day. Yammer is not at all quiet about what it is they're working on and how they're changing the product. You can actually go to the Yammer site and see a schedule of features that they are working on. So if you look for Yammer Release Schedule in Bing or Google, you'll get to this page. And it shows you each of the features that is being changed right now.
And whether it's planned, started, how far along it is on progress, whether it's launched or not. And you'll notice that ready means that it's being tested on a subset of users. So right now, there's some enhancements being done to Online Now. And Yammer Now invitations are being rolled out. You're actually going to see that demonstrated in this course, because I'm part of the subset of users that this feature's being tested on right now. So when we take a look at Yammer Now, it will look different than it would for someone who's logged in who's not in that test set.
In other words, it's possible that the person sitting next to you in your organization is getting a different version of Yammer today than you are. And they'll say, hey, are you going to accept that Yammer Now invitation? And you say, what Yammer Now invitation? Because this product evolves, you're seeing a course that was recorded at a particular time in history. If you want to know what has changed since then, you can go and look at past releases to see new features. And you can see the features that are currently being worked on right now.
Welcome to the evolving product called Yammer.
