Yammer SKU plan and pricing: details direct from SharePoint Conference

Source : Microsoft SharePoint Blog

Today, Microsoft announced the new Yammer SKU plan and pricing lineup at our annual SharePoint Conference. Yammer, the leader in enterprise social networking, was acquired by Microsoft earlier this year. The Microsoft/Yammer team has been hard at work designing a new pricing plan that makes it easier than ever for customers to experience Yammer.

Beginning March 1, 2013, Yammer will be available to Microsoft Enterprise Agreement customers.  Enterprise Agreement customers will be able to purchase Yammer Enterprise via Microsoft volume licensing. Microsoft has also created a set of combo SKUs for SharePoint Online (Plan 1 and Plan 2) + Yammer Enterprise. SharePoint Online + Yammer provides customers with a world-class collaboration platform and enterprise social capabilities.

Yammer Enterprise will also ship with Office 365 for enterprises (Office 365 E Plans 1–4).  Office 365 customers will have rights to run Office 365 for access to email, calendars, Office Web Apps, instant messaging, and file sharing and will have Yammer Enterprise for social.

Along with shipping Yammer with some of our most popular services, we will also be lowering the price for Yammer Enterprise standalone. Yammer Enterprise standalone will be available for $3 per user/per month (vs. the original price of $15 per user/per month). Yammer Basic standalone will also continue to be offered for free.

Beginning March 1, 2013:

  • Yammer Basic standalone:                                               $0
  • Yammer Enterprise standalone:                                         $3 per user/per month
  • New! SharePoint Online (Plan 1) + Yammer Enterprise        $4 per user/per month
  • New! SharePoint Online (Plan 2) + Yammer Enterprise        $8 per user/per month
  • Office 365 E Plans 1–4 + Yammer Enterprise                     $8–$22 per user/per month

(all pricing in USD)

Caution with custom views and Connections between webparts

everyone who ever used the conenction model between webparts, in which we can filter webpart with data from other webparts, knows how andy this functionality this is.

However, sofar as i can see there are two situations, in which this feature doesn’t work (it doensn’t even show up)

  1. When using a Gantt-chart view
  2. When using a customized view (which has been customized using the webpart properties)

Keep this in mind.

If anyone finds an other reason, please let me know :-)
