Microsoft 365 - What file types can I upload to Viva Engage/Yammer

UW-Madison's Yammer implementation has been configured to only allow image/video file formats to be uploaded to your Yammer site.

Beginning in March 2023, Yammer is evolving to Microsoft Viva Engage with new experiences rolling out today. Learn more.

Why was this decision made

When a service/application is released to our campus community, many aspects and usage of it are reviewed/assessed. Two major areas we review is the security and accessibility (who and how it can be accessed) of the service/application. Because anyone within our organization can access Yammer and the issues surrounding compromised accounts, the decision was made to restrict the types of data that can be uploaded into our environment. Yammer has limited security controls to allow us to control malicious content being posted.

If you are looking into sharing content, we suggest looking at the following other options available to you:
