  1. 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.

  2. Delve recent files list view

    Let me see my recent files in different views, similar to onedrive: detailed view, list view, thumbnails (large and small), currently its only HUGE thumbnails that makes you see only 3 top documents, while I have about 100 to see, make list available please !

  3. Ability to disable the "Message", "Call" and "Email" buttons on the about me profile page

    All three of these buttons are problematic in that they invoke external applications: Lync/SfB, Default OS UC Client, and Outlook respectively. With browsers increasingly securing these sorts of callouts the buttons are problematic and induce a lot of scary security dialogs on first click. Not a great experience.

    Further - for customers that are not 100% Softphone or Lync Voice shops - the "Call" button is 100% useless.

    We need the ability to disable these in our tenant as the user experience is problematic for all but 100% Microsoft OS, Microsoft Voice shops. Either that or the Delve team should…

  4. Hide the Org Chart from Delve

    We would like to hide the Org Chart completely from Delve. We do not want it represented in Delve all together. This would be helpful for us.

  5. Be able to see whether a person has viewed the email we sent them.

    This could be by having a green tick next to the email we have sent them - once they have read it. Also, if they viewed the email, but chose to not reply this should be represented with a red tick next to the email we have sent them. It makes it less frustrating that way.
    This should be for all devices - iOS, Android, Windows etc.

  6. Disable option to exclude private contacts from being exposed

    It appears that Delve currently exposes private contacts saved in People app to other users in your organization as part of "Working with" tab in new People card introduced recently. We need a way for end users or tenant level option to exclude those private contacts from being searched by Delve.

  7. Put a count of direct and indirect reports

    It would be great if in the people view when showing direct reports we had two summary numbers show as well... Number of Direct reports and Number of indirect reports.

    It is useful to see the number of indirects, especially for executives when you want to know the size of their entire org.

    Some apps in use at companies that utilize the AD graph API to show org charts already do this. It would be great to have this in delve.

  8. WE are checking for the option to integrate Delve with our organisation Intranet portal

    Hi Team,

    We are pleased with the directory search service available with Delve. We want our employees to use it and we can achieve this by integrating it or allowing access through our organization intranet portal. Hence check for this feasibility which will allows organization to make their employees to adopt for use of Delve.

    Regards,
    Vijay Kumar Ch.
    IT Team,
    Prione Bussiness Services Pvt Ltd.

  12. hide profile properties

    My company has decided to hide some properties such as About Me, School, Skills, from all of the users including themselves. We have tried to do the following steps

    Go to SharePoint Admin Center > go to User Profiles > go to Manage User Properties > locate the property (like About Me), hover over it and select "Edit"
    Under Display Settings: Uncheck "Show in the profile properties section of the user's profile page"
    Uncheck "Show on the Edit Details Page"

    However the property is still showing up when there is some values under About Me. How can we hide them…

  15. Ability to Edit user list and/or remove users

    we can add users by simply searching for them in Delve, but for example: we made a few changes on our users, and it enden up having two usernames duplicated, they are two different users, but one was deleted, both had the same email address, and both are still on Delve even the deleted one, which causes confution to the users.

  16. Allow Email from the People profile bar

    When clicking into a Person's profile under People in Delve the person's name appears with their email address below and the option below that for Message, I believe Email was also an option and this was the reason we upgraded some of accounts to Office 365 Business Premium because of this facility but it's gone!

    Can we have Email as an option back alongside Message please?

  19. Provide JavaScript tracking snippet to collect signals from (LOB) web applications outside O365

    The Office Graph API allows signals from external systems to be sent to Delve, ref. Salesforce integration example https://medium.com/@salesforce/a-sneak-peek-of-the-salesforce-and-office-delve-integration-8a2ebae6b82e However, this requires code changes to the external applications.

    This idea is to have a JavaScript tracking snippet (e.g. signals.js) that can easily be added to line of business (LOB) web applications. The framework should track and parse user actions - view item, open link, search queries, etc. - and send these actions as signals to the Office Graph. This will extend the Office Graph into the corporate landscape.

    This is similar to how Google Analytics collect user data by adding…
