You have to change it to this (below) or it won’t work. For example, Ike is supposed to hit Houston around 1:00 AM tonight. Realistically with our employees out of the office, it is likely too late for me to get everyone to change this setting. Is there even a way to change it via SMS if they only have mobile?
There needs to be a magic button where the network owner for a yammer domain can edit settings for the team as a whole in response to a crisis? I realize it is a brand new product, just thinking out loud.
