Integrate Yammer into Sharepoint 2013

In this post we see how to integrate Yammer features into SharePoint Server 2013. You can achieve this by installing the Yammer app for SharePoint and embedding your Yammer feeds.

 Step 1: Get the app from the Store

Important: Use an account that is a member of the farm administrators group to perform this step. Do not use the farm administrator account that was used to install and configure SharePoint Server 2013. The farm administrator account cannot import app licenses because that could result in performance problems. For more information, see http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/fp161231.aspx. You can add additional farm administrators to the farm administrators group in Central Administration. When in the online store, you will need a Microsoft account to add the app successfully.

1. In SharePoint Central Administration, click Apps.

2. Click Purchase Apps. The SharePoint Store opens.

3. In Find an app, type Yammer and press Enter to search for the Yammer app for SharePoint.

4. In the Search results, click Yammer app for SharePoint.

5. On the details page, click Add It.
Note: You will see the message Sorry, this site does not support apps but you can still acquire them and add them on other sites. You see this message because you cannot install apps to the Central Administration web application. You can proceed to acquire the app for your organization. 

6. When you get the following confirmation message, click Return to site. 
The Yammer app for SharePoint is now available in the app catalog. You may use the app on a site where your Yammer feed is needed.
