Things to know about Yammer
Yammer is made up a network and many groups. The network is accessible and viewable by anyone with a working ECU email address. This includes all faculty, staff and students. Knowing this, we created a private group that only includes all faculty and staff. So, this is where the majority of the faculty and staff conversation should take place. We want to separate faculty and staff conversations from faculty,staff and student conversations. Once you have logged into Yammer look on the left-hand side of the page. In the GROUPS area you will see a ” Faculty and Staff ” group. Click inside this for faculty and staff group to participate in the conversation.
