  1. 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.

  2. Hover over to get more information about a document (preview)

    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?

  3. Ability to hide new calendar feature in Delve

    There needs to be the ability to hide the new calendar feature in Delve people profiles, to accommodate for those who don't have Exchange Online. Otherwise everyone's profile page suggests they never have any appointments!

  4. STOP Redirecting External Users to Delve Profiles!

    When I am in a team site and click on a user's name who is an external user, it redirects to Delve, but since that user has no profile, it gives an error. HORRIBLE user experience. Obviously you can determine if the user is external or not right? I would think you don't want external users showing in your primary directory. Not sure what the best fix is, but I know its not this!!

  5. 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?

    Thanks for your feedback! Just a note to let you know that we’re working hard to improve the current experience. Sorry for the inconvenience.

  7. Add 'preferred pronoun' field in Delve

    It would be helpful to add a 'preferred pronoun' field in Delve so people can know what to use when they're about to address someone they don't know.

    This would matter for trans/non-binary people, but also in a multicultural environment (in which one is unsure about the gender typically associated with a particular first name).

  9. Allow admins to update profile property mapping like you can do on prem.

    Under "Manage User Properties" we would like to have the mapping controls enabled, so we can decide for ourselves where properties pick up from AD, like you can do on premise. Currently the "Add new mapping" drop downs do not work.

    Great feedback! I’d love to understand more about where and why you’d want this.
    Is it on your own site to get quicker access to the sites you’re following?
    Or is it on other people’s pages to understand what they’re interested in?
    Or perhaps both?

  12. Add SharePoint sites to the list of "Common file types" in my activity page

    When I click Me, my activity page opens. In this page there is a "Common file types" drop-down menu in the right corner. This allows the user to filter the activity list to e.g. PowerPoint presentations only. In this drop-down list I would also like to see SharePoint sites as a separate filter option, so that the activity list only shows team sites that I have used recently.

  14. Make files from Office 365 Groups visible into Delve

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but as of now, the files that are stored into Office 365 Groups are not accessible from Delve. It seems like the obvious thing that is not implemented.

  17. Add presence to people pictures in Edge (and other browsers)

    Presence has become a big part of how people collaborate and now that Edge doesn't support Active X and the NSAPI plugins are going away from Firefox, Chrome etc. It is being sorely missed in the organization.

  18. If a user's email address is marked "Hide from address lists", it should be hidden in Delve too.

    Some users may not want their email address visible to all employees, so Delve should take into account whether or not their address is set to "Hide from address lists" in Exchange.

  20. A way to see when the last (and next) Analysis Cycle is due to run

    The whole analysis cycle topic will be hard to understand for most users - and even for IT pros it is difficult to understand why we don't see the things we expect to see. Having access to see the analysis cycle timing for an end-user will probably help answer a lot of helpdesk questions from users who are complaining they don't see what they expect to see.

    We will be moving to a model which is running analytics in a continuous fashion which will render the need for insights into the “cycle” obsolete. Thanks for the feedback.
