Microsoft Office Delve Boards Help Enterprises With Content Curation
The company releases a new Delve collaboration feature that helps users organize and share Office 365 content and interactions.Office Delve users can now organize their cards with a new feature called "boards." Delve is a mobile-optimized app that automatically surfaces situationally relevant information and interactions on "cards," visual and sharable representations of documents, discussions and other content shared over the Office 365 platform. It is powered by Office Graph, content discovery and machine learning software that the company described as the "new Office 365 intelligence fabric" when it first announced the technology last year. Office Graph determines the connections between employees and serves up personalized updates based on their roles and current projects. Now, early users—the Delve app is currently being rolled out to Office 365 business customers—can further personalize the experience and open up new collaborative opportunities. "We are excited to introduce a new feature in Delve called boards that help you organize content, so it’s readily accessible and easy to share with others," announced Microsoft's Office Team in a Jan. 7 blog post. "In Delve, you can use boards to group together and share related documents. For example, you can create a board to collect and organize all documents related to a specific project your team is working on."
Delve boards support cards generated by current Office Graph "signals" attuned to Office 365, OneDrive for Business, SharePoint Online team sites and the Office 365 Video Portal, according to the company. Email attachments and Yammer newsfeed support are slated for the "coming months."
