Yammer Overview

Yammer is an internal social networking tool for faculty, staff, and students which offers a host of social networking features to make it easy to communicate and collaborate from anywhere with just about anyone at the University. 

Using just a NetID, Yammer provides a quick view across campus so faculty, staff, and students can share knowledge easily and regularly. Groups allow you to find the most relevant information based on shared interests and interactions, and email notifications can come straight to your Collaboration Services inbox to organize all the @mentions, announcements, conversations, and private messages relevant to you on Yammer.

Yammer includes the ability to reply to posts, tag colleagues in conversations, share files, create polls, create and search for topic tags, and much more. Yammer also integrates with SharePoint and Office 365.

Get Started

Go to the Northwestern Yammer network to log in with your NetID and NetID password.
