The following support features are available in Yammer.

Yammer does not support recovering deleted content—such as External Networks, Users, Messages, Groups, and Files—including content accidentally deleted by administrators of networks.
Microsoft does not provide custom or ad hoc reports outside of the analytics features available in Yammer. Occasionally we can provide a custom report in the course of a support request, but for the most part, we cannot accommodate direct requests for the data.

The Microsoft FastTrack service can help your organization move to the Microsoft Cloud by providing help at every step along the way. FastTrack enables you to strategically plan rollouts, quickly ramp up new services, and onboard new users. For details, visit the FastTrack Center. For information about creating your Yammer network, including pre-launch, launch, and support documents and activities, go to the Envision: Identify scenarios page, and then click Bring your organization together.

Technical support is available to answer customer questions and resolve issues quickly. Yammer customers can receive support by posting to the public support forum, which is monitored 24 hours a day, seven days a week by support agents. If you’re a Yammer customer searching for support, see Yammer Public Support.

Yammer Enterprise administrators are responsible for account maintenance and are authorized to communicate directly with the Microsoft Support team. If you’re a Yammer Enterprise administrator searching for support, see Microsoft Support.

Microsoft Support assigns a severity level to a case when it is opened, based on an assessment of the issue type and customer impact. Examples of issue types and severity levels are shown in the following table.
