Simply add the feature to your Event App, edit it, and enter the URL that you copied in the previous step. Uncheck the 'Open link in external browser' box so the Yammer Feed embeds in your Event App's web version. You don't need to use the 'Pass Data to URL' checkbox. Click Save Changes when you're done.
