Find people and information by using search

  • Start typing in the search box to find people, documents, or boards.

    Search in Delve is personalized. Even before you start typing in the search box, you may see a list of suggestions based on your previous activity. As you start typing, the list of suggestions changes accordingly.

    Use search to find people and information
  • If you press Enter or choose Show more results, you'll see more search results based on what is most likely to be relevant to you.

    What search results you see, depend on things like what you've been working on recently, who you've been working with, and what documents they've been working on. For example, if one of your close colleagues has written a document about a specific subject, that document will probably show up higher in the result list than documents written by someone you don't know.

  • You can also find people by skills, projects, education, or other information they have added to their profile.

    Note: This is currently only available if your organization has opted in to the First Release program.
