Determine who's viewed a conversation

Seen counts allow a user to see how many people have viewed their conversations. These counts appear on the upper right corner of the original post.

Seen Counts for Conversations

What seen counts mean

Seen counts represent the number of unique users who have seen the conversation in Yammer, and only show if there is at least one person who has seen the conversation. A person is counted as having seen a conversation if the first message appears on their screen, and they scroll to the bottom of it. The person who started the conversation is excluded from the counts.

How to view seen counts in Yammer

  1. In a browser, go to and navigate to a conversation that you started.

  2. If the conversation was seen by at least one person, a count appears at the upper right corner of the message. 

Who can view seen counts in Yammer?

A: The counts are only provided for conversations that were started after December 22, 2017.
