  1. 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.

    • Editing a board title (including deletion)

      We should be able to edit the name of the board. What if its created with a typo?

      ...which leads me to my next point...you should be able to delete a board that is no longer relevant, used, etc.

      • Add content to a Delve board from SharePoint or OneDrive

        How about adding board tagging to a document's source location like SharePoint or OneDrive? That way we wouldn't have to hope we find a document in the Delve application if we wanted to proactively add it to a board in Delve.

        • Delve should have more explicit Managed Metadata support; Delve Board names should be linked to the Term Store

          Delve Board names should be linked to Managed Metadata Service. Documents in SharePoint or One Drive that get tagged with the same term could be suggested for addition to the board. People who have tagged themselves with that term (Project or expertise, etc) could have the board suggested to them, etc. Topic is a very important signal and Delve should be using the term store to formalize its use.

          • With boards, I'd love to see some ability to control permissions for a given board.

            I'd love to be able to choose if I want to make a board private or public, and who should be able to see it or edit it.

            I'm looking at this from a school district perspective and if we have a teacher who creates a board, it would be unfortunate if a student were to go in and remove everything from the board.

            • How about a "board cloud"?

              It would be nice to see a master list of all the boards that have been created. Making the master list some kind of "board cloud" like a tag cloud (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tag_cloud) would be nice...

              • O365 Planner tasks displayed in Delve

                It would be great if we can get the O365 Planner tasks displayed in Delve. This will make it easier for managing all tasks form Delve home page.

                • Add a Folder to a Board

                  It would be nice to see shared folders show up in Delve in addition to files. I would like to be able to pin shared folders to boards and not just individual files.

                    • Search for Boards

                      Allow users to search for existing boards to find boards that already exist w/o entering new boards names which may or may not find an existing board. This would reduce duplicate boards of related content and allow others to access boards of interest just by searching for a topic such as "finance" (which would show all finance related boards). A wildcard for the search text would be beneficial in case the finance boards do not all start with the word "finance".

                      • "Global" Boards

                        It would be useful to have the ability to publish "Global" boards to all users (or groups of users) for holding global policies, forms etc.

                            It would be good te see when an item was created/uploaded and modified. Especially for Office365 Video items where only time is showing, this would be convenient.

                                Enabling private boards would increase their usage. Many of our users are not comfortable sharing board names company-wide.

                                    • Automatically create board for O365 group

                                      I like the group experience in O365, but Delve feels disconnected. It feels natural that when a new group is created in O364, they should also get a board created in Delve so members can easily tag content for the group to view without having to save the content to the group's OneDrive. It would also make sense for a link to the group's delve board be placed on the group home page, or even better have a delve feed webpart displayed on the page.

                                      • Admin Controls for Content Boards

                                        Similar to the Admin Console for Office Groups which allow Admins to see all Groups, change names, delete groups, see owners/administrators/creators and now set up naming conventions, Content Boards should have an admin console to allow similar actions as well as see content associated with that board all in one place. Boards are Groups for related content in Delve so it plays well w/ the overall "Groups" strategy of Office 365.

                                        • Add an open document to Delve Board from Office Clients

                                          I keep finding myself going back to delve to search for a document that I have open already to open to a Delve Board. It would be great if from Word Online or PowerPoint Online or desktop clients that I could add the open document to a Delve Board.
