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 control over the profile experience, especially the header sections - hiding fields in the profile is built into the admin UI, we should also be able to hide the headers that they come under as they contain language specific to those properties.
Thanks for your feedback! We like your suggestion and we’re planning to build it.

3 years and the delve people profile is still incredibly poor. Our 2016 profiles are much more flexible and rich.

Roadmap item link?
Custom properties should have the same consistent look and feel in both the way they're presented within Delve and edited (currently within the old User Profiles screens which use a different UI)

3 years is a long time to plan, when will you develop it?

We really just want to show an alternate phone number (mobile) on the profile card.
searching for the properties saved in custom user profile properties would be really nice!

We would like to be able to add custom fields to the contact cards and/or to the Delve profile information (display those besides the primary fields).
Any updates on this?
Is there an update on this?
Come on Microsoft, please focus on returning functionality that used to exist onPrem, before adding more and more features we don't use!

Is there a timeframe?!
I still can't change my initials on my profile to my full name as I had it before with the "old feature". This new feature doesn't give me that option and I tried out the initials to see how it'll look and then the new features kicked in and now I can't change it back. Everyone in my organization has their full name on profile so it shows on emails, etc. For me all you see is my initials which looks very unprofessional. When could you fix this and have this feature back??? The old version was better than this.

There is an add-on, www.discovermepro.com, which provides highly customizable employee skills profiles for SharePoint and should help significantly.

Nothing's happening here anymore. Delve is dead.
