Found a bug?
A simple, lightweight extension to notify you of Yammer private messages.

Just install the extension, and ensure you have logged in to Yammer recently. You'll receive notifications whether you have Yammer open or not.

New in v1.2.0: UI icon for enabling/disabling notifications. Fixed a bug with syncing user preferences to Chrome storage.
New in v1.1.0: will poll for message updates through the Yammer API if you are logged in, so you'll be notified regardless of whether you have any Yammer tabs open, and (v1.0) will also analyse network requests on any Yammer tabs you do have open.

Risk impact

Yammer Desktop Notifier requires a number of risky permissions that can potentially harm your browser and steal your data. Exercise caution when installing this extension. Review carefully before installing. We recommend that you only install Yammer Desktop Notifier if you trust the publisher.

Risk impact measures the level of extra permissions an extension has access to. A low risk impact extension cannot do much harms, whereas a high risk impact extension can do a lot of damage like stealing your password, bypass your security settings, and access your personal data. High risk impact extensions are not necessarily malicious. However, if they do turn malicious, they can be very harmful.

Risk likelihood

Yammer Desktop Notifier may not be trust-worthy. Avoid installing if possible unless you really trust this publisher.

Risk likelihood measures the probability that a Chrome extension may turn malicious. This is determined by the publisher and the Chrome extension reputation on Chrome Web Store, the amount of time the Chrome extension has been around, and other signals about the Chrome extension. Our algorithms are not perfect, and are subject to change as we discover new ways to detect malicious extensions. We recommend that you always exercise caution when installing a Chrome extension, especially ones with higher risk impact and/or higher risk likelihood.

Najgori program koji sam vidio u životu!
by Janja Babic Janja Babic, 2020-04-03

Расширение хорошо тем, что выдает уведомления только по сообщениям чата, а не по всем событиям в группах (новые посты, лайки, комментарии). Я искал именно такое - чтоб только чат. Это позволило отказаться от Линка как месенджера MS (он далеко не только мессенджер, но сейчас не об этом). Для этого расширения было бы здорово, чтобы уведомления были кликабельными и сразу вели к полному тексту сообщения на странице Яммера

Orphaned project. No longer in development.

The manifest file declares the requirements and permissions that a Chrome extension will have access to. By reviewing the manifest, you may be able to determine if a Chrome extension is over-reaching (for example, if an extension is overriding your new tab page, or search provider, or requesting access to your web activities without any good reason).
