This section applies to harmon.ie Email only.

  1. Define the YammerEnabled registry key under harmon.ie root key, and set its (Default) value data to True.

  3. If there are multiple Yammer networks available in your organization, define the YammerNetwork registry key and set its (Default) value data to the network permalink.
    Note: The network permalink is retrieved from the Yammer URL. Read Yammer Embed to learn how.
  4. Add https://www.yammer.com to Internet Explorer’s Trusted Sites Zone of all users.
  5. If your users are working with IE11, add the URL of the Yammer embed application to the Trusted Sites Zone as well: add http://*.harmon.ie if you are using harmon.ie Yammer Embed, or the URL for your own Yammer embed application.
