Hey, you can now import all your users and data from Yammer to your Zoho Connect Network.
To do this, you need to be a Yammer super admin.
How is it done?
We will be doing this through Yammer APIs, which is why we need your account credentials to generate the auth token. Once the import is done, we will delete the auth token.
The reason we're doing this is because exported file (zip file) from Yammer can result in the loss of some content, but with APIs, all your data can be imported.
Why register an app in Yammer?
The reason being, to generate client ID and client secret.
