  1. we should be allowed to message people.

    we should be able to message people. when you share a document or something you can leave a message right but what if we could actually message people like a direct message i think this is a good thing to think about because someone might be traveling and need to chat with there group about the prodject.i think this is a very good thing to just try i would love to be able to talk/ text my friend on Delve in O365. Thank you!

    • RSS for Delve Blogs

      SharePoint Blogs had RSS. Delve Blogs is one of my favorite components in Office 365, but I do need RSS to feed out to SurveyMonkey.

          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?

        • Integrate Delve Favorites and SharePoint followed files

          Currently I can "follow" a file in SharePoint Online (although I can only see these in the old OneDrive Classic for some reason!!!), and I can "favorite" a file in Delve, but I can't add a file to a Delve board or see my followed SharePoint Online files in Delve.

          My staff seem very interested in Delve, but this kind of basic integration needs to be better.

          • Prevent users from starting blogs

            Admins in schools really need this feature. For every student that is curious and hits the button "new post" within the blog feature of Delve automatically a blogsite is created and even if nothing is written in there these blogs are recommended within the Sharepoint Startpage. For those of you already suffering from this, here is a link to delete these posts, so that these sites also dissapear from the Sharepoint Startpage:
            https://contoso.sharepoint.com/portal/personal/username/_layouts/15/deleteweb.aspx

            There should be an option to simply prevent users from blogging beforehand!

            • Add SharePoint sites to the list of "Common file types" in my activity page

              When I click Me, my activity page opens. In this page there is a "Common file types" drop-down menu in the right corner. This allows the user to filter the activity list to e.g. PowerPoint presentations only. In this drop-down list I would also like to see SharePoint sites as a separate filter option, so that the activity list only shows team sites that I have used recently.

                • Add Assistant position leaf in the Organization tree

                  Today, Assistant will appear as a direct report in the organization tree.
                  It is common that a manager has an Assistant (not always she is unique to him, but to several other managers) and she should appear separately (another branch) from direct reports (and be synced from other AD attribute).
                  It is a very common issue in a lot of companies.

                  • Add a "My Links" area

                    Add an area where you can create a list of links (URLs / documents) that matter to you. Makes it quick to access from any device & do not have to rely on browser bookmarks.

                    • Ability to share Blog Pages easily

                      When you have created a blog post, you should be able to easily share it in all available O365 mechanisms like Yammer, Boards etc, rather than just Email as it is setup currently.

                        • Allow admins to update profile property mapping like you can do on prem.

                          Under "Manage User Properties" we would like to have the mapping controls enabled, so we can decide for ourselves where properties pick up from AD, like you can do on premise. Currently the "Add new mapping" drop downs do not work.

                          • Integrate Yammer 'About Me' fully into Delve

                            The 'About me' link in Yammer now clicks through to Delve, however if a user's Delve 'About me' or photo is changed this still does not feed into Yammer. Now that the two 'About me' areas are one, the info from Delve should feed through to Yammer.

                            • Choose which properties display on pers

                              Allow admin to choose which properties are displayed in person info card. We added two custom properties-Extension number and business unit. When I view my own profile, delve allows me to click 'Contact info' and then view these two under Additional Information section. However when I see Delve page of any other user, there is no Contact Information link and there is no option to see the Additional info section. My company has decided to disable Office graph but I think by default Delve should display all user profile properties that are marked as visible to everyone.

                                The company I work for is looking for a dynamic interactive chart. Delve almost has this, it certainly contains the required information. It would be greatly beneficial to have a company / department / team overview org chart ability as part of delve or o365 somewhere. Please!?

                                      We are looking into different options to improve our handling of mark-up on the Delve profile page. Thanks for the feedback.

                                    • 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.

                                      • Make files from Office 365 Groups visible into Delve

                                        Correct me if I'm wrong, but as of now, the files that are stored into Office 365 Groups are not accessible from Delve. It seems like the obvious thing that is not implemented.

                                        • Delve - ADAL Azure Authenticator SSO

                                          OneDrive, Work, Excel, and PowerPoint all SSO (Single-Sign On) through the Azure Authenticator app to ADFS or Azure AD. I think this is part of an adaptation of ADAL, but our users LOVE it.

                                          The greatest part about this is that our users only have to sign in to one of the apps which then configures the Azure Authenticator app with SSO.

                                          I believe this is some form of an ADAL adaptation. I'd recommend speaking with the Office iOS team and the ADAL team about how to implement this.

                                          We use MFA in the orgs we support so only having…
