The Yammer homepage provides easy access to communities and conversations. In this video, learn how to launch Yammer, view the Yammer home page, and sign out.
- [Gini] If you have a Yammer account, then you can get to Yammer very easily. In the same way you'd get to any other online app from Microsoft. Go to the App Launcher, for example here in Outlook on the Web, and find Yammer and click, and you will end up in Yammer. This is the new Yammer. And I can tell that because at the top it says the New Yammer Preview and that button is turned on, but also two other clues that will let you know that you're in the new Yammer and not classic Yammer. One of them is the incredible amount of white space here on the page. It's a very crisp and clean look. And also we have icons that have colors, but the other big clue is that we have communities. In classic Yammer, we have groups. In the new Yammer, we have communities. When we log into Yammer, we end up on this home or main page. I'm going to give you a quick tour because we'll spend a lot of time here. This is what Yammer looks like. The page has three broad zones. On the left hand side, an area for navigation, in the center, an activity feed with conversations, and on the right hand side, some other information. Sometimes all we have there is a use policy or something else that's about our context. This area on the left hand side does not change. We see at the top, Home feed, Inbox, and then we have different communities below that. The area in the center changes all the time because this is the heart of Yammer. At the top, we have a search box and when you search in Yammer, you're searching through all of Yammer. You're searching for people, you're searching for communities, and you're searching for specific content. To the right, a button that you can turn off the new Yammer and you'll end up back in classic Yammer. That's another course in the LinkedIn Learning library, by the way, which is a Yammer Essential Training. To the right, we have a button that shows us whether we have notifications or not. We have the ability to give feedback on the new Yammer. And then we have a Settings button, which is where we set all of the settings for Yammer. A help button, and then a button that has your initials or your profile picture on it. And normally, if you wanted to leave Yammer, you could just close the browser and the next time you logged back in, you'll be back. But if I close my browser, I'm actually not signed out. So if I were working, for example at a hotel or something, and I wanted to sign out, I would actually sign out, which is going to sign me out of Office and return me to the sign in page.
