It has been 1 year since we launched the Microsoft Northeast SharePoint Community on Yammer. This is a private Yammer network that has been established with these primary goals:

  • Provide a forum for Microsoft SharePoint customers and partners (based primarily in the Northeast region of the United States) to connect with each other and Microsoft employees. This forum is being used to ask/answer questions and share best practices.
  • Enable local SharePoint user group and SharePoint Saturday organizers and members to connect with others in the community.
  • Offer the Microsoft team the ability to share information on product releases, news, and local events.
  • Demonstrate how Yammer can be used to support collaboration. This is important for the SharePoint community to understand as Yammer becomes more tightly integrated into SharePoint, Dynamics CRM, and Office 365. Check out the latest roadmap post and Yammer customer case studies for more information.

To help keep the discussion focused (and prevent everyone from getting spammed by advertisers, recruiters, etc. Smile) we have kept the network private and grant access by invitation only. If you’d like to join us, feel free to submit an access request via the Microsoft Northeast SharePoint Community on Yammer
