  1. Show telephone numbers on user profiles in Delve mobile app

    Currently it's only possible to e-mail a person from the Delve app, but would be really useful to have the user's contact telephone / mobile numbers especially when accessing from a mobile device. Quick-links to call or SMS would be great.

    • Faster Updating in Delve

      Update the document cards and boards more frequently. Lots of our users complain about this and it is hurting adoption.

      • Add publishing pages as a content source in Office Graph

        Lots of organizations use articles to communicate to end users. It would be great if those could be surfaced in Delve.

        • Provide easier discovery and rollup for blogs

          Currently there is no way to easily discover other users' blogs, not is there a way to cleanly and neatly rollup blogs from all users. Without this, it offers no clear advantage over the older SharePoint based blogs. Currently, I have to hack my way using a CSWP with custom display templates and that is too clumsy and doesn't work most of the times.

            • Ability to remove some documents from Delve

              Hi,
              Sometimes, some document do not need to be on delve (archive, old versions ...) it would be good to be able to remove them when we are the author of the document.

              • 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.

                          When users come to the Delve site from our SP site, it is cumbersome for them to get back to the SP site. This is a deterrent to users adopting Delve. Can we add a way to add a link back to the site -- either in the left nav or in the profile banner?

                            Can you elaborate more about the concrete problem to navigate back to the SP Site? The browser’s back button should work (except for the case when a redirect flow is being triggered). Thanks for the feedback.

                          • Please allow to customize Delve edit profile page or to add custom action to it to support updating custom properties to SP and external DB

                            Please allow to customize Delve edit profile page or to add custom action to it to support updating custom properties to SharePoint and external DB systems. Because many organizations have their own external system to manage their users profile data. They want Delve to update the data to their external system as well as to the SharePoint. So if we can add any Custom action to Delve profile page where we can show custom user profile properties which will sync back and forth in SharePoint and External system.

                            • 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.

                                    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...

                                      • 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

                                        • Make it possible to use back button in Delve and go back to previous page

                                          Now you get an error "something went wrong" when you click on the back button in Delve to go to previous window.
                                          You have to close your window and start over again
