Using Yammer discussions instead of the built-in sharepoint commenting feature

We want to start our new sharepoint intranet site, and we will be relying on creating modern pages and chatting capabilities. so we are going to appraoch these as follow:-

  1. We will be creating SharePoint modern pages to publish articles and information and official company news.

  2. We will create a Yammer group and embed it inside our SharePoint home page using the “Conversation” modern web part, to provide a company wide discussion board.

  3. Now we are facing an issue on how we should implement the commenting on modern pages. as the built-in commenting provided inside sharepoint modern pages have many limitations such as; anyone can delete any comment, most of the third parties tools do not support backup-ing or migrating modern pages comments, also deleted comments can not be restored.

so to provide more robust appraoch for commenting on modern pages, we are planning to do the following:-

  1. Create a modern page let say named “Our HR Policy.aspx” >> then we will create a new yammer post >> inside the yammer post will add a Topic named “Hr Test Policy” (similar to the modern page name):- enter image description here

  2. Then we will edit the modern page and add a new modern Conversation web part >> filter the conversation based on the unique topic:- enter image description here

so in this case we can benefit from sharepoint modern pages capabilities in building modern web pages + the capabilities which Yammer provide for building a discussion/chatting module for our pages.

so can anyone advice on the appraoch we are planning to follow; mainly on replacing the built-in sharepoint modern page’s commenting sections with yammer posts (which will be linked to the modern pages using unique Topics)?
