Join Gini von Courter for an in-depth discussion in this video What you will need, part of Yammer Essential Training.
You don't need a lot to play along with this course. You will need to have an organizational email address to get a Yammer account. So if you've already connected to Yammer, you're all set. If your organization is going to send you an email so that you can connect, that's great. If you are one of the people setting up a Yammer network for your organization, you must do it with an organizational email address, a .com, .edu, .gov, .info. Something like that, but not one of the web mail services.
So, not live.com, not gmail.com, not Hotmail, not Yahoo, not aol.com. You need to have a real email address in an organization. So that's the first piece. The second piece then is optional. Once you have this, you're all set. We're going to be uploading and working with files and you may want some. I want to suggest that you might choose to have a file that's a Word document, a PowerPoint presentation or PDF that you're willing to upload and play with. And you might also want to have a couple of images, or a video, but again, those are optional.
So if you wish to work with the files, you will want to provide some. This is all you need, let's get going
