Have you have logged into the Microsoft Office 365 portal, seen the Delve icon and wondered, “what is that?” You are not alone! Delve is one of O365’s best-kept secrets.
Delve is an amazing tool that brings forward content you have viewed or would be interested in, across O365. Think of it as your personal O365 brain. Delve finds your recent O365 activity (Yammer, SharePoint, email, etc.) and conveniently categorizes it. Can’t remember the name of the document you were editing, Delve will find it! Also, it finds documents that your team members have been working on (following all O365 security settings) and brings it forward so you can easily find the files you need to collaborate on.
As you can see, Delve collects your recently viewed/modified and relevant documents for you. This eliminates time spent searching through SharePoint folders and asking colleagues to share documents with you. It is all right at your fingertips.
Delve is also intuitive, so the more you share, edit, and collaborate with your colleagues across O365, the better it gets to know you and the content you need to see. It follows all security settings so your private document and activities, such as email communication cannot be seen. From a management perspective, this is a wonderful tool in driving Office 365/SharePoint user adoption.
On the left-hand side panel of Delve, you will see a list of people. This list is the colleagues that you work with the most and will change based on your interactions. People that you co-author documents with, exchange the most emails with, and look at the same documents will appear higher on the list and move down as the interactions are less. This is a fast and easy way to collaborate with the people you are working with.
Office 365 is all about working smarter. Delve is just one of the ways Microsoft has #productivityreimagined!
This is the kick off to our Office 365 blog series. Be sure to check back and learn about all the fantastic features you can take advantage of in O365.
