Finally, Delve users who are on the First Release track will also get access to a new Favorites feature that lets people mark certain files and posts inside Delve as favorites. The favorites won't be shared with colleagues, but users will be able to browse them privately. The feature makes it easier for people to track important files they need to keep an eye on without relying on the machine-learning algorithms that power Delve.
All of these enhancements make Delve a more appealing product at a time when Microsoft is pushing it as a cornerstone of Office 365. The core product is designed to help people see what files and projects their co-workers are working on, using data from the Office Graph. In the future, Microsoft will also use Delve as a place where people can go to understand how they integrate with their larger organization and how their work metrics stack up with other people from the company.
