Just to be clear this is bulk inviting guests not users.

For guests, you can actually do it a somewhat sneaky way (this way also works for users):

Go to "Bulk Update Users" in the Yammer Network Admin.

Create a CSV with the columns:
action,email address,full name,job title,password,new email

bulkusers-1.png
You can then save it and upload it through the Bulk Users Update panel (Yammer | Network Admin | Bulk Users Update).

After it's processed, go look in the "Invite Guests" area:

In my example, I received the email invitation:

Yes. For external users, fill in the password field. I just didn't want to share mine. :)

If inviting a guest to your internal network when they already have their own home network.  What is the purpose of the password field (or is it not a requirement since they will be using their own tenant to authenticate and toggle to the other (invited one).
