User impact, Admin impact




Eligible Viva Engage (Yammer) networks are being automatically upgraded to native mode. If you have already received an approved exemption, that exemption is still valid for the approved date. No further exemptions are being granted.

Due to the high volume of migrations, the completion time for some automatic and self-service migrations may be longer than expected. Once notified about automatic migration, no action is required.
You may still initiate a self-service migration, if a Message Center post has not been received announcing that the network has been scheduled for automatic migration. Once you start the self-service migration, no further action is required unless specific errors are displayed.
[When this will happen:]
The automatic migration of networks to native mode started on December 1, 2022. Automatic migrations are expected to continue through October 2023.
We recommend that you initiate self-service migration on your own by visiting the Microsoft 365 Native Mode page within the Network Admin pages of Viva Engage (Yammer). Once the message center post has been sent for automatic migration, admins are unable to perform self-service migration.
