If you are considering SWOOP for Yammer, then a trial is the way to go. There's nothing like seeing your own data through SWOOP. There are only a three simple steps involved:
Step #1: Check if 3rd party application access on or off?
Step #2: Create your SWOOP Analytics site
|Ticked||Follow instructions: Setting up a Yammer Trial (3rd Party Apps Allowed).|
|Un-Ticked||Follow instructions: Create a 1st Party application on Yammer|
Once the above is complete please proceed to the next step.
Step #3: Create and activate a dedicated system account for data mining (recommended)
This step is not strictly required for the trial, but it is good practice as it helps ensure that the data mining process isn't interrupted by a person inadvertently being locked out of Yammer, and also means that the verified admin doesn't get annoyed by a very visible "Private Content Mode Enabled" in Yammer.
Create a dedicated Yammer account for SWOOP that is not associated with a person (call it say "SWOOP Data Miner"). It is very important that this account is assigned the rights of a 'Verified Admin" (does not need to be an Office365 Admin).
In order to activate the account you will need to login to the SWOOP miner and set the account. To do this go to:
miner-<your SWOOP name>.swoopanalytics.com
After logging in click on the 'Set Miner to Current User' button.
