Yammer < > Skype / Lync chat IM integration RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello all

    We are a global enterprise of 200,000 staff, and we use Skype for Business (formerly Lync) for our instant message platform.

    We also use Yammer as our enterprise social network within the company

    Both these products are great, however there is ONE feature that would really be fantastic: having the chat / IM functionality on both platforms integrated, so I can ping a colleague on Skype and if he is outside the office but happens to be on Yammer, the IM appears there, or vise-versa.

    Does anyone know if this integration is possible now, or maybe in future? I cannot find anything concrete online so I thought I would ask "at the source"?!

    Thank you all :)

  • Hi,

    Base on my research on Internet, the SFB\Lync Server integration with Yammer may be achieved in the future. However, so far it is not integrated.

    It is better to contact Microsoft to confirm the integration plan.

  • Based on Microsoft's Office 365 Roadmap Yammer with Skype for Business integration is already under development. https://fasttrack.microsoft.com/roadmap#I-51513
