How this will affect your organization

Your Yammer network will no longer support private unlisted groups. Users will no longer be able to:

  • Create private unlisted groups
  • Use existing private unlisted groups

What you need to do to prepare

We recommend that you communicate clearly to group owners of this impending change and coordinate an effort to remove the groups or convert them to a listed private or public group which can be connected with Microsoft 365. More information is covered in the Microsoft Native Mode Troubleshooting FAQ.

If December 1, 2022 is no longer an acceptable date for secret group retirement, please contact support as soon as possible to file an exception. This is the only way to delay the deprecation of secret groups for your network.
