    • 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 profile - better support for custom profile properties/settings

        I bumped into the new "profile experience" in Delve this week and am not loving the lack of ability to customize. Before the new experience, we added several of our own profile fields such as Certifications, Educational Background, etc, and removed some of the out-of-box properties.

        This worked fine in the "old" profile, but in the "new" profile, the headers for the OOB properties stay in place when those properties are hidden, creating an empty section. They also relegate the custom properties to an area below the fold of the page.

        It would be great if we had more administrative…

        • Turn Off Delve Separately From Office Graph

          Currently it is only possible to turn off Delve by turning off Office Graph. Please decouple Delve dependency from Office Graph so that Delve can be turned off independently of Office Graph.

            • 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.

                • 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.

                    • 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.

                        • Ability to Add Link Back to SharePoint Site in Delve Page

                          When users come to the Delve site from our SP site, it is cumbersome for them to get back to the SP site. This is a deterrent to users adopting Delve. Can we add a way to add a link back to the site -- either in the left nav or in the profile banner?

                            Can you elaborate more about the concrete problem to navigate back to the SP Site? The browser’s back button should work (except for the case when a redirect flow is being triggered). Thanks for the feedback.

                          • Please allow to customize Delve edit profile page or to add custom action to it to support updating custom properties to SP and external DB

                            Please allow to customize Delve edit profile page or to add custom action to it to support updating custom properties to SharePoint and external DB systems. Because many organizations have their own external system to manage their users profile data. They want Delve to update the data to their external system as well as to the SharePoint. So if we can add any Custom action to Delve profile page where we can show custom user profile properties which will sync back and forth in SharePoint and External system.

                                I have multiple documents in my feed that appear to have the same title - turns out Delve is using the 'Title' formatting in Word rather than the 'Title' document property or the filename.
                                I'd like to be able to hover over similar results and see more information (not just location, as in this case I have several documents with the same location and apparently the same title) similar to the hover over options we get in SharePoint search? - file name, or properties such as Title, content type?

                                • Delve replicate to AD or provide extra PowerShell user attributes

                                  Any changes made by an user in Delve is not replicated back to AD. However we would like to get the updated attributes of the user profile (Mobile, assistant etc.) back in AD. The best solution would be that Delve replicates this back to AD...

                                  But a secondary possibility is to make the attributes accesavle via the PowerShell. Via the O365 SharePoint you're able to get some basic columns (displayname), but it would be great if we could also be able to get mobile, assistant etc.

                                  The Delve page is a very nice page for users to update their profile…

                                  • Show Skype for Business presence status in Delve profile

                                    It should be possible to see the skype presence status on the Delve profile of every user. So when I search for a user or visit a user profile, I can directly see if the user is online and I don't have to open skype for this before. It would be great to see this on profile cards as well. It is like the classic experience where I can see this information in the classic SharePoint people search.

                                    • Enable ability to follow a person from his/her Delve profile page

                                      At the moment it is an awful experience to try to follow a person. I have to go to the "old" Newsfeed-Page, from there click on "followed persons", then click on "follow multiple persons" and then enter the name in the people picker.

                                      It would be much easier if there was a "Follow/Unfollow-Button" right on the Delve profile page of each user.

                                        • About Me ignores HTML

                                          Adding HTML text in the About Me field of a Delve profile gets ignored when rendered. Only the plain text is displayed. Can this be changed?
