ScreenCloud Yammer App Guide

Please note, if you are using the older version of ScreenCloud (signage.screencloud.com) you can download the alternative Yammer guide here.

The ScreenCloud Yammer app helps everyone to gain more visibility over your Yammer communications by sending the latest messages to your digital signage screens. This eases communication between teams and ensures no one ever misses a message again.

With the ScreenCloud Yammer app you can:

  • Select which Yammer groups you want to show
  • See chats on screen, as they’re happening in Yammer
  • Choose how to view your content; whether it’s by individual message or chat log

Here’s how it works:

1. Select and install ScreenCloud’s Yammer app

1.1. Get started by logging into your ScreenCloud account here and choosing the ScreenCloud App Store from the left-hand menu.

2.2. Once logged in you’ll see the list of groups associated with your Yammer account. You can choose which group to display by clicking on it. Don’t worry if you want to show more than one group - you can add the Yammer app and select a different group as many times as you want, or use the all company channel to pull in multiple posts from across channels.

Note: You’ll see the handy “PRIVATE” tag on any groups which are private, in case you don’t want to share those to your public screen.

2.3. Once you have successfully chosen your Yammer group, this window will close and you’ll see a green checkmark next to “Log in” to show that your Yammer account is successfully linked.

3. Choose your layout view

Next, you can use the "Layout" dropdown to select whether you want to view Yammer by the latest message:

Alternatively, you can show Yammer by chat log:

Each view supports pulling in images and praise comments from your channels.

4. Preview your Yammer app

Once you’ve added your Yammer app you have the opportunity to preview it before it gets added to your screens.

You can also view ways you can set content on your digital screens using ScreenCloud by clicking here.
