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.
I agree completely with this comment. We've established an entire campaign at our organization to encourage people to use these profiles as a means of connecting, building teams based on skillset, finding commonalities (degrees, schools, skills). This change will significantly impact our efforts by confusing our users.
