Measure and grow engagement with group insights in Yammer

Yammer helps you engage employees across organizational groups, form communities and run cross-company initiatives. Community managers play a large role in creating and nurturing groups for these purposes. We want to empower community managers to make better decisions around their efforts on Yammer by helping them better understand the activity happening in their groups.

Over the past year, we have made significant progress on helping Office 365 admins gain insights on how people are using Yammer in their organizations through the Office 365 Usage Reporting Dashboard, Office 365 Adoption content pack and Microsoft Graph reporting APIs. These reporting capabilities provide and extensive view into Yammer usage and adoption at the user, device and group levels.

This week, we are excited to release new group insights in Yammer, providing engagement metrics right within Yammer so that community managers and members can get a better understanding of their groups’ engagement and activity. This, in turn, will help better inform efforts to improve, grow or execute campaigns in groups.

Accessible across your network

We have heard extensive feedback that managing a cross-organizational community oftentimes includes the efforts of stakeholders and champions with limited or no access to the information available in the Office 365 admin center. For that reason, insights for public groups can be accessed by anyone in your network by navigating to group actions from the group’s feed. Insights for private groups, however, are restricted to members of the group.

People activity in your community

Yammer groups are open by default, allowing the knowledge and information created in them to benefit people regardless of their membership status in the group. Passive visitors may gain value from group conversations and apply the information elsewhere in their daily work. In fact, during early research we discovered that in addition to understanding group member activity, community managers find it beneficial to understand the activity of visitors who are not members of the group. This is why group insights break down activity for both group members and non-members.

 

With group insights, you get an overview of activity for the last 7 days, 28 days and 12 months. This will help you:

  • Know how many members and non-members are active in the group
  • Observe predominant activity – posting, reading or liking messages – of group members and non-members
  • Get a glimpse of how key metrics – for example, number of active people or the number of posted messages – have changed since the previous period

View group activity for both members and non-membersView group activity for both members and non-members

Group activity over time

Group insights show you how posting, reading and liking activities are trending over time. These visualized trends illustrate the contributions of group members and non-members to activity in the group. Now, you can track engagement with content from campaigns or initiatives hosted in Yammer. Identify spikes in activity over the course of the year, month or week so that you can report back to leaders and optimize efforts.

 

Observe trends over timeObserve trends over time

All the data shown in group insights is available for download on a per-day basis for the last 24 months, which is particularly useful if you want to plot your own trends over a custom timeframe.

To see a demo of group insights in action along with other community management tools available for Yammer, we encourage you to watch our session Introducing new tools to measure and build your Yammer communities from Microsoft Ignite 2017.

To get more details on group insights in Yammer, please check out our support article.

We are excited to see how you use group insights to better nurture your communities in Yammer. We will continue to evolve group insights using the great feedback from customers and partners.

Ignite Live Blog : Communications-enabled business and services

You have probably heard about Office 365 Communications Platform all along the week. It’s now time to see what we can do with this platform. Taimoor has started by introducing the digital transformation helps by contextual communications. It’s changing the way we collaborate and how we are talking with our customers.

1.jpg

 

Some years ago, these interactions were mainly around telephony, and it was the only way we discuss with our customers. This time is over, we need to take advantages of all modalities to create more powerful line of Business applications with Presence, IM, Audio, video and other services.2.jpg

 

Microsoft‘s Platform offers lots of services and data to contextualize and make it intelligent

    • Cognitive services: It’s a powerful set of APIs to integrate AI in your application.
    • Bot Framework / Azure Bot Service is a framework to build bots and connect it over different channels (Skype, Skype for Business, Teams, Bing, Cortana and so on)3.jpg
    • Microsoft Graph is also a set of APIs which is exposing Office 365 Services (https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/graph/)
    • Azure IoT suite is a set of services to build and process data for iot devices

Office 365 Communication Platform was announced this week. You can find more information in the following session :

  • Create new experiences with Office 365 Communications Platform (BRK2197)
  • Dive deep on building apps and services with the Office 365 Communications Platform (BRK3037)

After this complete explanation of what is available to help the digital transformation, Taimoor explains some concrete examples:

  • Use cognitive services with a bank account. Check your identity before a video conference
  • Extract context and data of the document you are editing (through Microsoft Graph) and create Skype Conference
  • Use bot framework to connect your customers and your employees through several channels : Facebook and Skype for business

He also dived deeper in specific topics:

  • IoT: Connection between things and peoples

Analyze Data produced by iot devices to create preemptive maintenance: an alert is throwing, an agent is available on Skype for Business, he received an IM. If it is a critical incident, an audio call can also be used.4.jpg

 

  • Virtual Health: Extend care experience

A patient can be connected with his doctor directly in a web browser with audio, video. Each participant on both side keeps the context of communication.5.jpg

  • Internal: Reactive engagement to proactive engagement

Use Teams to post validation in a channel and help managers to be more reactive. An adaptive card shows quick actions (for example accept or deny expenses)

These examples are very interesting and demonstrate the power of communications and Microsoft platform brought together . As I said in a previous post, all the developers should check all the capabilities of Communication platform and services explained below. The main benefits for me are the direct impact of productivity and efficiency either on customer or employee part.

Ignite Live Blogging: Microsoft Teams Behind the Scenes

Introduction

Teams is the big new collaboration buzz here at Ignite, and at today’s session we get to see behind the curtains and get a little insight about the announcements made at the conference. This is an open Q&A session where the panel will talk about the news at the conference, the reactions to the announcements, and take questions from the audience.

20170928_132754947_iOS.png

About the team onstage

Darrell Webster – @regarding365

Dan Stevenson – Principal Group Program Manager, Microsoft

Loryan Strant – Consultant Prime – Office Server and Services MVP

Alistair Pugin – Productivity Evangelist – Office Server and Services MVP

Presentation

Dan gave an introductory presentation with a few important  Key points

  • Microsoft is committed to Skype for Business. I have personally been asked if Teams is replacing SfB, but that is not the message here. There is at least one more server version in the making, and there is no announcement about any termination of SFBO
  • Teams is ready now, but will get readier over time. It is an application in constant development.
  • Microsoft and partners are ready to help customers adopt Teams One great place to start is using faststart  http://aka.ms/SkypeAndTeams or http://successwithteams.com
  • More on Compliance, management and administration will be coming soon
  • All other office 365 teams are integrating their products into Teams

Introduction to the Teams team

Dan moved on to go through a couple of slides to set the agenda for the Q&A, and letting the audience hear some of the Teams team (this being the software engineering organization that builds Teams) experiences and reflections. I reccomend looking at the slides for accuracy, but here are some of the highlights I want to share:

  • The team uses Teams for all internal meetings
  • Teams is used for most 1-1 communication within the engineering team
  • Many use chat, but the general trend is to use channels more than basic chat
  • A few core teams
  • 100 channels (by function, products, announcements, competitive, fun staff and more)
  • Apps and extensions are widely used

After working with Teams for a while, here are some of the Teams team wishes for the future. The wish list is not a roadmap, but rather examples of areas they could look into in the future.

  • Private channels within teams, creating a hierarchy
  • Shared channels between teams
  • Read-only channels for informational purposes
  • Sharing chat history
  • Participant controls in meeting (“Desperately” – Dan Stevenson )

Dan also shared some of the key findings when it comes to factors driving the usage, growth and retention

  • Get the users to use the Mobile app – Users tend to be more productive when using mobile: (mobile users tend to be more active overall when mobile).
  • Make sure users already belong to a team before adding them to Teams. This gives them something to start with.
  • Smaller teams usually tend not to work, 3 is to small, 6+ tend to work better
  • File sharing: People got to the places their files are
  • An IT-led adoption tends to get things going at a quicker pace, where an organic approach will take some time to catch up in volume of active users.

20170928_124631718_iOS.png

My own summary

“On the way”, “on the roadmap” and “coming soon” are often a part of the answers we hear, and it just shows this is a product in the making. And it will be evolved over time, just as many other products now are continuously being improved. Microsoft encourages us to use Teams and SfB side-by-side until required functionality is ready in Teams. But if the features a group of people require is already available in Teams (like internal chat, meetings and document collaboration) you should really consider to make the swap to Teams right away.

I think it will take some time until the consumers and IT-pros get used to the idea that the product is “never” being finished the way things were done in the “old” days. This is the power of the cloud, it’s a new way to deliver funtionallity into products continously. The time when finalized products are shipped every “X” years is simply over.

Don’t heistate to get started. Use tools side-by-side, and gradually phase out obsolete tools when the new tools cover your requirements. That’s the real message here at Ignite.

A great place to go for information on what is happening, or to submit your own requests is the user voice. Use the “feedback” link within the application to be redirected to the user voice site.

Microsoft 365 helps businesses increase trust and innovation through compliance with Compliance Manager Preview

The evolution of technology and cloud innovation are democratizing data and in turn fueling digital transformation. Embracing every facet of this digital transformation offers organizations an opportunity to better engage with customers, empower employees, and optimize the creation and delivery of products and services. However, with the increased use of personal data to customize user experiences, new compliance laws—such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)—are a logical policy component of our technology landscape. Microsoft 365 offers a complete cloud solution to help you with GDPR compliance, while Compliance Manager helps you assess and manage your compliance risk.

Compliance promotes innovation by building customer trust in technology

At its core, the GDPR strengthens personal privacy rights for individuals in the EU and requires organizations to provide individuals control over their personal data. To build and maintain the trust needed to manage customer relationships through technology, organizations need tighter controls over what personal data they hold and how they manage and protect this data. Systems and processes need to be modernized to prevent the unlawful use of data, accommodate personal data requests by individuals, and provide notifications of breaches in a timely manner.

Businesses are looking to the cloud for added value

Our research suggests that companies not only see the long-term value of building trust by protecting customer data, but in fact believe their investments in compliance will positively impact other areas of their business—like productivity and collaboration.* When IT decision makers in Europe and the U.S. were asked to identify their top concern in achieving GDPR compliance, “protecting customer data” was the #1 response while avoiding fines ranked #8. More than half of respondents said the GDPR brings added benefits like collaboration, productivity, and security. Cloud solutions like Microsoft 365 are a big reason that businesses see opportunity in compliance. Of those surveyed, 41 percent said they are likely to move more of their company’s infrastructure to the cloud to become compliant. And among leading cloud vendors, Microsoft was identified as most trusted by a wide margin (28 percent), followed by IBM (16 percent), Google (11 percent), and Amazon (10 percent). All told, 92 percent of IT decision makers in companies that store data primarily in the cloud identified as being confident in their GDPR readiness, compared with just 65 percent of those who prefer to store data on-premises.

Microsoft 365 is a complete cloud solution for GDPR compliance

The Microsoft Cloud is uniquely positioned to help you meet your GDPR compliance obligations, with the largest certified compliance portfolio, services architected to be secure by design, and the most extensive global datacenter footprint in the industry.

Our cloud solution is built for power, scale, and flexibility. Microsoft 365 brings together Office 365, Windows 10, and Enterprise Mobility + Security—offering a rich set of integrated solutions that leverage AI to help you assess and manage your compliance risk, protect your most important data, and streamline your processes.

Assess and manage your compliance risk with Compliance Manager Preview

Because achieving organizational compliance can be very challenging, understanding your compliance risk should be your first priority. Today, we’re making that easier with the preview of Compliance Manager.

Compliance Manager is a cross–Microsoft Cloud services solution designed to help organizations meet complex compliance obligations like the GDPR. It performs a real-time risk assessment that reflects your compliance posture against data protection regulations when using Microsoft Cloud services, along with recommended actions and step-by-step guidance. Learn more about Compliance Manager and how to access the preview.

Protect your most sensitive data

Past understanding your consistence hazard, securing both individual information and other delicate substance is critical.

Microsoft data security arrangements give a coordinated grouping, naming, and assurance encounter, empowering more persevering administration and insurance of delicate information wherever it is—crosswise over gadgets, applications, cloud administrations, and on-premises.

For instance, Office 365 Advanced Data Governance use machine helped bits of knowledge to help you consequently order, set strategies, and ensure the information in Office 365 that is most essential to your association.

Azure Information Protection scanner addresses hybrid and on-premises scenarios by allowing you to configure policies to automatically label and protect documents on a Windows Server file share. Read “Azure Information Protection scanner in public preview” to learn more about the scanner.

Microsoft also provides external threat protection solutions to prevent and detect cyber-attacks across workloads—whether on devices using Windows 10, on-premises and Azure-based infrastructure, or with our cloud services like Office 365.

One of these solutions, Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection, is built into Windows 10 and helps spot most advanced targeted attacks by giving visibility into threats on your device, insights into the scope of the threat, and one-click response capabilities to isolate the threat immediately.

Streamline your processes

The GDPR requires organizations to be able to identify and locate personal data. Having a scalable investigation and audit-ready processes in place to meet requirements is paramount.

Content Search, a feature of Office 365 eDiscovery, makes it easy to search Office 365 for data related to individuals. Since the results of this search could result in large quantities of data or data that is confidential to the organization, machine learning in Advanced eDiscovery can be used to minimize the data so that you are only providing the relevant data in accordance with the GDPR.

Finally, Customer Lockbox provides an audit trail showing when personal data is accessed during service operations.

Microsoft desires to toughen workplace productiveness with this office 365 app

Microsoft has reported that its Workplace Analytics include is currently accessible for ms office 365 venture clients as an extra, expecting to support worker efficiency – however perhaps offering ascend to a few worries about precisely how staff individuals can be checked.

The fundamental thought of Workplace Analytics is that it takes metadata from Office 365 email and timetables and crunches that information, transforming it into what Microsoft calls behavioral measurements.

At the end of the day, the examination arrangement takes information on who is sending messages where and when, and furthermore for any semblance of planned gatherings by means of logbooks, consequently offering bits of knowledge on how staff are investing their energy, what number of gatherings they are going to et cetera – with a view to utilizing this data to expand efficiency levels.

Fortune supports the broke down
