As announced at Ignite, we’re introducing the public preview of retention policies for Yammer for user and community messages in Yammer.

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 63064.

When this will happen
We’ll begin gradually rolling this out at the beginning of October and expect it to be complete by early November.How this will affect your organization

If you are using Yammer Enterprise within your organization and wish to set retention or deletion policies to ensure you’re keeping only the data you need in your tenant, you will be able to target Yammer communities and users with new or existing retention policies.What you need to do to prepare

To leverage retention policies for Yammer messages, make sure that your Yammer Enterprise network is in Native Mode.

Once your Yammer network is in Native Mode, go Microsoft 365 compliance center and use the Information Governance solution to create a new retention policy for Yammer messages.
