Hey, workaholics: Microsoft Delve will track your 'work life balance'

Mark Hachman | May 5, 2015
Delve started out as a visual representation of the people and data you interact with at work, but now it's expanding into time tracking. Is this Microsoft Office Space?

The new Delve app doesn't have a version number; Delve is an "experience within Office 365," according to a company spokeswoman. What White showed off was a preview of the new organization view, the spokeswoman said. And in the example Microsoft showed, you won't be able to see exactly how other specific coworkers perform, she said.

"We do see value in organizations measuring various individual social analytics (like network size, time spent with customers) against performance data to look for trends and predictors of individual and org success," the Microsoft spokeswoman said in an email. "But that visibility will be driven by user and organization level opt-ins, not enabled by default."

Is Delve digging too deeply into your workday, or is Microsoft providing a valuable service? Let us know in the comments.
