How to Add an Image or a document in Yammer? Blogs: Both files and images can be posted to colleagues or specific groups in Yammer. Files that are uploaded will show a file preview beneath the update. Images will also feature a preview of the image beneath the update. Clicking on the preview for an image will display the full image whereas clicking on the file will allow you to scroll through the pages of the document in a reader. Files can also be downloaded from the preview pane and reader as well. The Go to File option in the preview pane will also allow you to edit the name of the file and add a description.While creating a document or image post you have he option to also reference files and images that are already uploaded into Yammer.
