  1. Search Everything

    Search All Office 365 Content from Delve. Currently, mostly only Documents are searched. Enhance search so that all SharePoint content can be found, including lists. Also, Include email from Exchange in my results and all Yammer Content. Basically, if it's in Office 365, Delve will find it!

    • Support for customer refiners in modern search

      I work with a lot of customers that tag documents to improve findability. However, the modern search experiences do not (yet) support refining search results using business specific refiners (e.g. department, document type or location). As this is currently missing, some of my customers are reluctant to move to the modern experiences. It would seem logical to support this as it encourages people to tag documents. Without this, the use of metadata would be limited to "Highlighted content" web parts and list views.

        • Extend Delve beyond Microsoft using connectors

          Currently, we use an enterprise search tool from a different vendor that indexes content from Sharepoint, Wordpress, Salesforce and Github. This unified search is nice, but the results are not as useful as what Delve provides.

          Similar to the connectors feature provided in Teams, Delve should support third party (and custom) connectors that allows it to ingest contents from other popular tools. This should also allow for the ability to build custom connectors that developers can use to integrate content from custom sources into Delve.

              Hi, thanks for the suggestion! We need a little more information to determine this: what kind of scope do you mean? From your comment, Cory, it seems like you are talking about refiners/filters on people search. Is that correct?

            • Option to Disable Delve Per User ( Deactivate Document Sharing Feature)

              As part of Delve Rollout in the organization, They required to have it disabled for all users and give the user the choice to join or not.

              so as admins we couldn't find a way to disable it individually

              • Show an advanced search option

                To improve Delve, it would help to add and show an "advanced search" setting when in the search bar.

                • Search by Department

                  Allow a search on department that displays cards for each person in that department. It would make org look-ups easier. The org structure info is already available and displayed in each users Delve page.

                  • Delve search from top navigation bar

                    Delve is a great tool for searching for documents across the entire Office 365 suite of applications. Instead of needing to click on the Delve app before gaining access to the search box, it would be great it this search box could be added to the top navigation bar so that a delve search can be easily conducted from any application.

                      Is it primarily documents that you want access to in the top navigation bar? Delve search also features search for Boards and people.

                    • It would be great to be able and search for exact phrases or have Boolean operators for connecting search elements.

                      It would be great to be able and search for exact phrases or have Boolean operators for connecting search elements.
                      Seeing what is currently hot is great but finding what I desperately search for would be at least as nice. Tagging relies too much on active contribution to be reliable.

                        • Hide entire content sources from Delve (cloud hybrid search scenario)

                          In a cloud hybrid search scenario, content from on-premises sources also appear in Delve searches. We are aware of the fact that single documents can be hidden from Delve by adding a HideFromDelve column in the content source. For large content sources (>100000 items), however, it would be beneficial if the Office 365 global admin could add a filter that will hide the entire content source from Delve. This would be similar to adding -isExternalContent:1 in the Search Center.

                              Governance through taxonomy...a SharePoint based MMS that drives everything...groups, teams, planner, delve, staffhub. The governance disconnect between these great office products is a worry.
                              Boards add no value as they are single app specific.
                              It's time to connect these application with a common framework of classification before you release more

                                  • Provide an analytics API for search, blog, and user profile metrics

                                    We'd like to see a Delve API similar to the Exchange API that allows querying of user interactions with Delve search (e.g. popular search terms, searches per day, searches by user, abandoned searches, etc), blog (blog entries for a user, blog articles read, etc), and user profiles (last update, has photo, has contact details, etc). This will be helpful for among other things helping to understand usage and adoption patterns around Delve services.

                                      • Add ability to open Office documents immediately from an Office Clients

                                        I like Delve for seaching, but in order to edit document you need to complete few unneccessary steps. Once you find some document, you have to open it in browser in preview mode and then you can choose to Edit it in client. Imagin if Google would ask you to do few steps in separate browser windows in order to preview search result - would you use Google?

                                        Please allow to choose Edit in Client directly from Delve - it would be more productive.
