Have you ever heard that you are what you do? Delve is the visual representation of that great quote. In April of 2015, Microsoft announced this thing called Delve. This was the next evolution of the User Profile. For the past three years, many people ask me “what is Delve used for”? Here is my answer. To find and show things that are most important to you that you want to show off to others.
Over December, I will be exploring the uses of Delve and how to use it
Sometimes you want to search and discover content based on a keyword or topic, but often you want to learn more about a specific person and what’s trending around them. The Delve enhancement to Office 365 personal profile experience, will deliver a richer people-based search and discovery.
The look and feel of Delve are built to be action-oriented and designed to help you find, connect and collaborate with the right people in your organization. In addition to core profile information, each person’s organizational structure is now prominently displayed and easy to navigate. And there are numerous ways to get to someone’s profile: a Delve people search, clicking their name in OneDrive for Business or Outlook Web App (OWA), clicking on “About me” and more.
Delve is self-configured, meaning that all you have to do is go to the Delve page and search presents what it thinks it is important to you. The more you use Office 365, the better your Delve experience will be. Delve will learn what is important to you by your actions in the environment and move those items up the page for you to be more aware of them. You can also follow and identify items you want to keep at the top as well.
In a large organization, Delve is a great tool and requires minimal training and set up to use it.
