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.
The sharepoint site and corresponding documents that I create should be visible on the home page. I don't understand why they are not. It's the only reason that I use this application (to get to my documents on a sharepoint).

Hi Delve Team, There is no option for redirecting to users sharepoint site from Delve.
As you said Browsers back button is working. but how many times user can click? Please add a button or any redirecting link to sharepoint from Delve.

I want to give my users a clear and consistent way to navigate between Delve and SharePoint,you give us a 'Global Navigation' like SharePoint and then we can add the links critical links we need.
I want to save my favourite sharepoint links in my delve favourites area... There are too many sharepoint sites I'm following to look under sharepoint.. I just want my top 3 most important SharePoint sites on my delve page. If delve is my personal portal/dashboard then surely it should store links not just document?

You can configure your company logo in the Office 365 top bar to go to your SharePoint site. This provides an easy way back to your SharePoint site from anywhere in Office 365.
You aren't always going "back" to a SP site. For instance, I want to add a "favorite" document to Delve that is on a SP site and not in OneDrive. It's a pain to have to open up SP, find the document, and do it all over again if I need it later on. why not have the ability to see all of your "fav" documents in one place? Only providing access to certain docs defeats the purpose.

We have the same request, many users find it confusing how they get back to SharePoint after reaching Delve. The ability to add some navigation items to everyone's Delve page would be great. Delve currently has left hand side navigation similar to the Current Navigation in SharePoint.
Give us the ability to add 'Organisation Links' or something in this left hand side section.
Guess it would need to be a tenant setting and therefore accessible in the O365 Admin area only which I think would be fine.
We get a grumpy looking tiger image when we hit the back and a "Something went wrong :( " message - it takes us entirely out of our tenant. No one will want to go to Delve.

We have the same issue. The only Office 365 service my company is using now and for the foreseeable future is SharePoint. Delve takes users out of SharePoint and we'd like the ability to insert links back to our intranet homepage as well as being able to promote other links on our intranet through Delve.
just figured out that the 'pin to app launcher' feature is only working in Internet Explorer (possibly Edge, haven't tried that) but not Chrome. Frustrating user experience.
hello O365 feedback team - I have the same question ! I don't think that using the back button is ideal really? users would expect a button or a link somewhere on the page to help them to get back to where they were, or at least a consistent navigation from the rest of O365. If a user has performed a couple of actions within Delve (eg click on a couple of different profiles, boards etc they will have to perform multiple back clicks to get back to their SharePoint Online site.
I've tried setting a custom tile in O365 admin - that involves 3 clicks (open the App launcher, click on my apps, click on custom tile) as Delve App launcher behaves differently to within OWA or SharePoint Online (where the Custom tiles can be added straight to App launcher, so you're down to 2 clicks (App launcher button, Custom tile) but still not ideal?
I also tried setting up a custom theme in O365 admin (that allows you to add a button with a link to the suite bar) - but this doesn't appear in Delve!
As Heather says, it's hard to get people to adopt or even like Delve when the experience is frustrating. We feel like you can get to Delve from a few places (links on SharePoint sites, your own profile links) but you can't get out of Delve that easily.
please can you advise when this might be added to roadmap?
