Post on behalf of capability coming to Yammer

This new “Post on behalf of another user” feature will allow Yammer users to assign other users in their network as their delegates. All users in the Yammer network will be able to add other users in the same network as their delegate.

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 66500.

When this will happen:

We will begin rolling this out in late June and expect to complete rollout by late July.

How this will affect your organization:

This feature will allow any user in the organization to assign a delegate who can post on her or his behalf. A delegate can start new conversations or reply on behalf of the delegator as long as both users have access to the Yammer community where the message is being posted.

Types of delegates:

Delegate manager – can post on behalf of the other user, and add or remove other delegates on behalf of the other user.

Delegate – can post on behalf of the other user, but cannot add or remove other delegates on behalf of the other user.

What you need to do to prepare:

You might want to notify your users about this new capability and update your training and documentation as appropriate.
