  1. Ability to embed dynamic Delve Boards on SharePoint Pages as app or embed

    Create an app or embed function for every board for display on SharePages. Since boards are just an aggregated view of content, this would work similar to adding a list view to page, but obviously with more dynamic and visual content. Views should allow for auto scaling of the tiles based on area of the embedded cotent.

    • Editing a board title (including deletion)

      We should be able to edit the name of the board. What if its created with a typo?

      ...which leads me to my next point...you should be able to delete a board that is no longer relevant, used, etc.

        • Add content to a Delve board from SharePoint or OneDrive

          How about adding board tagging to a document's source location like SharePoint or OneDrive? That way we wouldn't have to hope we find a document in the Delve application if we wanted to proactively add it to a board in Delve.

          • Search Everything

            Search All Office 365 Content from Delve. Currently, mostly only Documents are searched. Enhance search so that all SharePoint content can be found, including lists. Also, Include email from Exchange in my results and all Yammer Content. Basically, if it's in Office 365, Delve will find it!

            • Hide specific users from Delve

              I would like to exclude specific users from showing up in Delve searches. I can add a search query rule to exclude these users from a SharePoint Online search but this doesn't work in Delve and the users still show.

              Can we please have a method to exclude users from showing in Delve?

              • Delve should have more explicit Managed Metadata support; Delve Board names should be linked to the Term Store

                Delve Board names should be linked to Managed Metadata Service. Documents in SharePoint or One Drive that get tagged with the same term could be suggested for addition to the board. People who have tagged themselves with that term (Project or expertise, etc) could have the board suggested to them, etc. Topic is a very important signal and Delve should be using the term store to formalize its use.

                • Ability to remove disabled users from Org Charts

                  Currently Delve displays a person on the org chart if they have a valid account and the manager is set. It gets its data from AD and Azure AD and funnels that through SP Online to get generated.

                  The issue is that newly disabled people are not removed from the org chart. For instance we mark an employee as disabled, remove their licensing and ensure access is blocked. Even with this done, a departed employee will display on the org chart. How Microsoft support suggested to fix it - ManagerID, but for OneDrive Notifications and rights transfers we cannot remove…

                  • Add publishing pages as a content source in Office Graph

                    Lots of organizations use articles to communicate to end users. It would be great if those could be surfaced in Delve.

                    • Faster Updating in Delve

                      Update the document cards and boards more frequently. Lots of our users complain about this and it is hurting adoption.

                      • The cover photo on Delve pages should be able to be changed to something company relevant and branded.

                        The Delve cover page on a user profile page should be more in line with a company's brand. As it stands right now; the cover page for Delve is a mountain range; which is not indicative of the company brand at all and is hard-coded into the styling.

                          We’ve implemented the ability for end users to change the background image, chosen by a set of pre-defined images.

                        • Provide easier discovery and rollup for blogs

                          Currently there is no way to easily discover other users' blogs, not is there a way to cleanly and neatly rollup blogs from all users. Without this, it offers no clear advantage over the older SharePoint based blogs. Currently, I have to hack my way using a CSWP with custom display templates and that is too clumsy and doesn't work most of the times.

                          • Provide commenting, tagging, categorization, and organisation

                            Currently there is no way to comment on the blogs, nor is there any way for the author to tag the blog with topics. Also needed is a way to be able to better organize all blogs based on topics/tags and date/month/year. Without this the new blog is no better than the older SharePoint based blogs, which at least have commenting, and archives to organanize.

                            • Delve usage reports (in O365 Admin center)

                              As an administrator I would like to view Delve usage reports (in O365 Admin center), so that I can understand if/how Delve is being used in my organization.

                              Metrics of interest:
                              - Number of users per day (unique and total)
                              - Popular search queries inside Delve (by day/month)
                              - No result search queries inside Delve (by day/month)
                              - Abandoned sessions (user opens Delve, but does not click any cards or links)
                              - Web app vs. mobile app usage
                              - Most popular boards
                              - Unused boards
                              - etc.

                                • Delve for iPad

                                  Make Delve work on iPad. This doesn't need to be a huge undertaking; at first it should just be the iPhone app enabled for dynamic resizing.

                                    Hi Aaron,

                                    Thanks for the feedback! We definitely have it in our plans to make sure the iPhone app works, resized, on the iPad.

                                  • With boards, I'd love to see some ability to control permissions for a given board.

                                    I'd love to be able to choose if I want to make a board private or public, and who should be able to see it or edit it.

                                    I'm looking at this from a school district perspective and if we have a teacher who creates a board, it would be unfortunate if a student were to go in and remove everything from the board.

                                    • Ability to remove some documents from Delve

                                      Hi,
                                      Sometimes, some document do not need to be on delve (archive, old versions ...) it would be good to be able to remove them when we are the author of the document.

                                      • How about a "board cloud"?

                                        It would be nice to see a master list of all the boards that have been created. Making the master list some kind of "board cloud" like a tag cloud (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tag_cloud) would be nice...
