Office 365 Introduces Delve Boards
Microsoft first began rolling out Delve (codename Oslo) back in March of 2014 as a way to combat the need to search for relevant internal information head-on. It came as a blessing to most of us Office 365 users because we no longer had to search high and low for documents that either we or our co-workers had recently updated. As with basically everything Microsoft, they’ve been constantly updating and changing the inner-workings of this glorious addition to their team. However, they’ve recently implemented something called “Boards” to aid all of us in our search for relevant data.
In a nutshell, Boards are a tool to help you organize your Delve site so relevant information is readily accessible and easy to share with coworkers, team members, and just about anybody else you would like to show. By adding a “board”, you create a place where you can group documents with related information.
Using Delve Boards means you have all of the documents that you’ve moved onto that board presented to you at the click of a mouse. This means no more relentless searches to find “that one document the guy at the other side of the building/state/time zone/country edited three days ago”. How do you take advantage of such a helpful feature? Well, it’s honestly really simple. There’s a little button off to the left that says “+ Add to Board“; click this to select an existing board or create a new one.
Delve Boards are such a simple improvement, but it makes using Delve so much more useful and efficient than it already was. If you have an office 365 subscription that allows you to use Delve (E1 and E3), give it a try and see exactly how much relevant information you discover and how easy it is to find.
