Introduction


The Yammer ShortPoint element is here as part of the new Social Media Elements Category in the ShortPoint Page Builder. Using this element, you can embed a Yammer feed into your Sharepoint pages.


You can find it by either clicking the Social category at the top or by typing "yammer" in the search bar.



Clicking on the Yammer element will open its Settings tab allowing to customize various options.


Demo


Take a look at the demo page we have set up for this design element and see it in action by following this link.


Customization options


  •  The Network Permalink can be extracted by going to your company's Yammer feed and copying the first part of the URL that comes after yammer.com/. It is required to be filled in.


  • The Feed ID is optional and allows the embedding of a single Feed using the Yammer element. It can also be extracted from the address bar URL by visiting the group that you want to embed.



Size


The following set of options control the size and responsiveness of this Social Media element.



The Width and Height options are pretty self explanatory. The embedded element has some limitations imposed by Yammer, which are that the Width and Height have a minimum value of 400 pixels each. The default values for both Width and Height are set to 400 pixels the first time the Settings are opened. The element is responsive by default.


Special Note: Yammer only allows one embedded element to be included into one page, and the element is not officially supported by mobile browsers, so please take that into consideration.


We hope this article has been helpful for introducing you to the new Yammer Social Media element and showing you how easy it is to use. Happy embedding!
