YAMMER ON THE WAY

Issued: Fri, 11 Mar 2016 15:09:00 GMT

Image of the Yammer logoAs part of the University’s continuing Office 365 rollout, the work-place social media platform Yammer will be available to all in late March 2016.

Yammer is a social networking tool which can be used by students and staff to create networks and communities. It can be used by any group – e.g. student study groups or staff school/services teams in different locations.

All current  Yammer staff groups will transfer in automatically and group admins will continue to manage their groups. We’ll  provide some checklists and tips.

Yammer will also be the new home for Small Ads where you will soon be able to post, attach photos, and manage your own ad directly.

Campus e-News will provide an update when Yammer is ready for you.

Delve

Delve helps you discover information in Office 365. You don’t have to remember the title of a document or where it’s stored: just search and Delve will show you all the relevant results you have access to, no matter where they are or who created them.

Privacy

Use of Delve does not change access permissions. Delve will only show you documents you already have access to. It will not show your private documents to anyone else.

Access

Log in to Office 365 using your University email address and GUID password, and choose the Delve tile.

Features

  • Find any document you have access to, anywhere in Office 365
  • Search for people, documents or boards
  • Add documents to ‘boards’ to easily get back to them later
  • Click someone’s name or picture to learn more about them, or to see documents they’re working on (that you have access to)
