Ability to remove or hide "Your recent online documents"
The landing page automatically displays "Your recent online documents". There should be an option to hide these from being displayed permanently or temporarily. I don't want other people seeing my business when I start Office 365 :-)
Thanks for sharing your feedback about the recently used documents. We are working on making this feature better in our future releases.
It would be cool if Delve was more consistent, and this type of feature lived there, rather than cluttering the home page.

About "Your recent online documents"
Office365 on the web (In this instance I've Microsoft Office365 installed on my home laptop and linked to my work account for Ofifice365) shows a list of documents that have been deleted or moved so their links won't/don't work.
There has to be some way to remove this list of bad links.
Did you guys just pull Office365 out of your a**es solely to inflict it on the rest of the world?
Seriously asking. What did we ever do to Microsoft to deserve this?
I'm about 2 more p***es off from removing Office365 from everything and just going back to Libre Office; which works just fine by the way.
I never use online word. I am an admin and when I go to the landing page of O365 it shows documents in the "your recent online documents". This seriously needs to go away!!!!
Absurd that these listings cannot be deleted.

Just landed here after being annoyed for the very same thing.
This is privacy 101, so I find hard to understand why this has been in "Thinking about it" status for more than one year.
I used to defend Microsoft as the only choice in the enterprise world, until recently with all this invasion of private, personal life.
The idea of having your most recent documents listed on the landing page is ridiculous added to the fact of having no way to remove them is even more absurd. This one lone issue makes the use of the program worthless. Stop the data mining and get down to the technical issue.
We recently considered moving our organisation over to Office365 and Skype for Business. The inability to remove documents from this list meant we couldn't so went elsewhere.
Additionally, the Recents list continues to hold document titles that have been deleted, changed, or moved off of OneDrive for business, so being able to clear the Recent List actually makes it more accurate and usable.
I have to agree, It is annoying to have all documents displayed on your Landing Page. The ability to delete the unwanted items is essential. Microsoft 365 auto saves your document as document or some such title. So when you change the name of the document you get a display with both the original name and the name you really want. Please advise on how to delete the unwanted item. Right clicking it only gives you basic information and no way to delete or remove from the list.
