Yammer: How do I create a Group?


This article describes how to create a group in Yammer.


To create a new group one of two ways, click the "+" next to the "PLYMOUTH STATE UNIVERSITY GROUPS" heading or "+ Create a group" in the left-hand column of your Yammer home page.


Here, you can choose whether the group is internal or external. Give the group a name, members, and public/privacy setting. You can invite members to join by entering their usernames or email addresses. Note that while you can invite people to the group who are not yet members of your network, they will have to accept your invitation and create a Yammer account before they will show as being added to your group.

*This page will alert you if the name you've chosen is already taken by another group on the network, allowing you to make the change before launching it:


Once you've made your selections, click the "Create Group" button to launch your new group.
