Fixing Embedded Yammer Feeds in IE

Fixing Embedded Yammer Feeds in IE

07/16/2015

Yammer, the social network for your business, is a valuable resource. As we’ve covered in the past in blog posts and videos, it’s one of our favorite resources for reducing email clutter.

But it’s useless if you can’t see it – and some people are having issues with the embed feed not showing up when using Internet Explorer. The problem seems to be that IE is blocking the domains that Yammer uses for the embedded feed. Thankfully, there is an easy fix:

Here’s how to fix the Yammer embedded feed not showing up in Internet Explorer:

1) Add Yammer to the trusted or local intranet zones in IE settings. Chris Hopkin’s recommends these settings on his blog:
Security > Trusted Sites
[Enable] Protected Mode
*.sharepoint.com
login.microsoftonline.com
Security > Local intranet
[Disabled] Protected Mode
*.assets-yammer.com
*.yammer.com

2) Update the security level to get rid of the "This page is accessing information that is not under its control. This poses a security risk. Do you want to continue?” prompt. To do this, change the settings for the message in the “Custom Level” section in the security tab. Find “Access data sources across domains” (miscellaneous section) and change the setting from “Prompt” to whatever setting you want.

After making these changes, you should be able to see your embedded Yammer feeds. If you are still having issues, or want to learn more about Yammer, please contact us.
