    I would like to be able to find SharePoint sites. Currently if I search for a site, it get back only documents that contain those words. I should be able to search for 'xyz Site' and the search algorithm should prioritise 'sites' over individual documents, libraries or lists. Or I should be able to select Site in the results filter to restrict results. Very often, people need to find a site first because they do not know the exact name of the file they are seeking. Reading through the other comments, it seems to me that the ability to filter or refine the type of result (file, Yammer feed, site, person, list, etc..) is something that is missing with Delve. Thanks.

    I have had similar difficulties to Zane Perry with check in/out controls with Office online documents (Word, Excel, etc.).

    We have a document library that is set to require check out and to open in Word online by default. When the user tries to edit the document the error box "Please check out this document before editing it in Word Online" (as in your screenshot above) followed by the button "Open in Reading View"

    This causes a great deal of confusion among users, especially those who are not familiar with SharePoint document libraries, as they cannot work out how to actually check the document out. There is absolutely no way, in the Word online interface, to check out the file. And they do not realise they have to go back to the document library view to achieve this.

    I would suggest that, as is the case in the Word client application, there should be a button in Word online (or Excel) that allows the user to check out and subsequently check in the file when they have finished editing. The current method of returning to the document library then using the cascading menus (3 levels deep) is more than many users are able to work out by themselves. I realise there is an alternative method in the ribbon, but this also requires the user to return to the document library.

    Users do find the ability to check in/out document very useful, especially when it is important to make sure only one version of the document is the definitive version.

    If an improvement could be made in the online interface, that would be really great.

    Thanks,

    Natalie
