What is Delve?
Have you ever been in a situation where you knew you had seen some information but forgot where, or made contact whose name you could not remember, or forgot where a colleague had placed a critical file for a joint project you were working on together? If so, then consider this: Delve to the rescue. Delve, included with Office 365 for Business, helps you help yourself through a discovery of information, people, and files that are most relevant and interesting to you.
How Does It Work?
It’s as easy as clicking on someone’s name or picture anywhere in Delve and you can discover what documents they are working on, or even learn more about them based on publicly available information. All you have to do is store documents and other information in OneDrive for Business, or in SharePoint in Office 365, and share them with your colleagues. It’s that easy!
If you are looking for people, Delve can pull their information from their profile pages included within your company’s Office 365 portal. Click their picture, or just type their name into the search box and away you go.
Making It Relevant!
The coolest thing is that Delve starts with you in mind. Delve knows what documents have been shared with you in an email, what documents you have created or accessed, Yammer references you have made or that others have made about you, and what documents your team members have recently accessed (and how frequently). The engine behind it all is Office Graph. The longer and more often your colleagues use Office 365 to coordinate on projects and collaborate, the more information the Office Graph can collect and track to make the discovery process more clean and efficient.
This is just scratching the surface of what Delve is, its capabilities, and how it can benefit you.
