  1. 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

  5. Have Delve search contents from other tools.

    It would be great If delve can search contents from Video, Stream, OneDrive etc.

  6. Ability to filter people search results by Title, team name etc.

    It is currently very difficult to find people on delve. One needs to be very accurate in spelling out the first and last names to find the correct person. There should be a way to filter results by title/team name or any other profile information. Further, names spelled in any variant should lead to close matches in results.

  7. Looking for a person: add Cost Center and Global ID in the first page (Summary)

    When looking for a person, the first page (summary) shows email, full name, phone, position. Please add Global ID and Cost Center, otherwise, we have to click on the summary and after that click on View Profile to get them. We have to check dozens of employees every day to do our job and it will help a lot! It will be perfect if the summary shows the person's manager and his GID too.

  8. 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.

  9. seach user profiles and blog posts

    Delve could be really useful for searching out people with a specific expertise within the enterprise based on the delve user profiles. The delve search should search and display user profiles and user blog posts as search result cards just like the documents that it finds. Preferably grouped as a search result category before all the documents.

  11. Have Delve search for and index Advanced File Properties

    We often add custom tags in a file so it can be easily referenced in documentation. "Search in Delve for xl20170505pay" for example and it will pull that file up.

    But it doesn't work with password protected files, information rights management files, etc. because those aren't indexed by Delve - they are encrypted.

    But we can put those tags in the Advance File Properties which I believe are outside of the encryped information, and could be in the Category or Keywords fields.

    It would also allow us to put these tags for all files in a consistent place vs adding…

  12. 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.

  17. Add the ability to search on profile information

    With the ability to add so many details to your profile it would be helpful for search fields that target those. For example: search on the 'ask me about' field to find someone who has Excel knowledge. Or search for people that have worked on a particular project.
