Last year we introduced the ability to view and edit Office documents in Yammer using Office Online. When we launched, it was only possible to have one person edit a document at a time. Today, we are very happy to announce that you can now have multiple people collaborating on a Word, PowerPoint or Excel file, right from within your Yammer group.
Getting started is easy. Simply upload a document to a Yammer group, or find an existing one. Click the ‘Edit File‘ link on the right side of the page. Other people from your team can open and edit the document at the same time. There are indicators showing other users are making changes to the same document. When you’re finished, simply close the browser tab. All changes are saved automatically and a version history is visible on the File’s page in Yammer.
