1 month left for the Yammer app in SharePoint!

If you are using the Yammer app in SharePoint 2013 or SharePoint Online, remember that you have 1 month left before the Yammer App stops working!

Yammer app

This isn’t exactly news, as this was announced in March on the Yammer IT Pro Network, however it’s a good reminder that if you are still using the Yammer App, better switch to Yammer Embed as soon as possible! The Web Part for SharePoint 2010 will also be killed on March 15th 2016, but there will be no replacement for it. Here is the timeline from the Yammer Announcement:

  • The Yammer App for SharePoint 2013 on-premises and SharePoint Online will be discontinued on September 15th, 2015. On this date, the App will stop working completely, and will no longer be supported. Customers on SharePoint 2013 or SharePoint Online must migrate to Yammer Embed, our single solution to embed Yammer feeds going forward, as soon as possible. Please read this step-by-step guide to move to Yammer Embed.
  • The Yammer Web Part for SharePoint 2010 will be discontinued on March 15th, 2016. On this date, the Web Part will stop working completely, and will no longer be supported. Only SharePoint Online, SharePoint Server 2013, or the upcoming SharePoint Server 2016 release will support Yammer Embed from that point on.

This leaves me wondering, what will the integration between Yammer and SharePoint look like in SharePoint 2016? Read my blog post for What you need to know about SharePoint 2016 Preview !

Vlad, I too am very interested to hear more about Yammer integration in 2016, and whether it will move the needle at all, or whether customers will continue to look elsewhere for integrated social solutions.

Another issue that people should consider is how to identify all of the Yammer app instances on their current environment, and then to make a plan to swap them out with the embed feed. This could be a massive effort.
