How can we improve Delve in O365?

Ability to embed dynamic Delve Boards on SharePoint Pages as app or embed

Create an app or embed function for every board for display on SharePages. Since boards are just an aggregated view of content, this would work similar to adding a list view to page, but obviously with more dynamic and visual content. Views should allow for auto scaling of the tiles based on area of the embedded cotent.

        You sure have been thinking about this for a long time, Microsoft. How about some action?

        This can be created as an SPFx web part, but it would be great if Microsoft would give us one out of the box. As a configuration option, give us the ability to scope the Delve results. Return results from everything, certain sites, certain libraries, certain pages, etc etc. The more options the better.

        In my environment I have an admin and his 2-3 executive assistants. The admin should be able to define his "board" categories and the exec assistants, acting as his proxy, should be able to tag documents with that board category. As it is now, there is no live link between the board and multiple users sharing that board tag. There should be definable proxy groups and all users within that group share the same board/tag structure.

        Also the ability to embed the Delve blogs in SharePoint pages. That would be a really cool feature as otherwise Delve will create silos if people are just concentrating on either SP or Delve.

        Access to a feature like this is important to us. We have users that need to see content that is tailored specifically to them, and that is pulled from all over the O365 platform. These users generally have a very limited knowledge of O365 and this would make it as simple as possible for them to use, while still reducing the risk of documents being duplicated or pulled from an incorrect location.

        There was a good discussion about this idea during the People Experiences YamJam in the Delve group of the Office 365 Network. (http://aka.ms/office365network). Simon Hudson kindly started the discussion there.

        I think this is a great idea and it has my vote. Even if a Delve web part for SharePoint only serves to draw people to using Delve from within SharePoint, that would be an advantage.

        This is really important to us.
        Many of our clients are not yet ready to allow users to roam free amongst the wider office 365 applications. They want their SharePoint intranet to be the centre of activity rather than the currently fragmented office O365 components, so embedding Delve within their intranet rather than external to the intranet is really important and they're confused why they can't do that already
