Hi all, is there any update on when private group files will be visible in Delve? 


It has been "rolling out" for some time now on the Office 365 Roadmap, and according to UserVoice this capability was expected to be released by end of May. Also I noticed

I don't think this is currently possible with Delve blogs...same happens with modern pages in SPO....both use the same canvas for adding contents

Does anyone know of any way to hide the Delve tile on the App Launcher AND on the O365 Home Page without disabling the Microsoft Graph.


I don't think that this is possible, but I need some confirmation for my client.

Very strange this "possible" move of Blogs to Video Portal...specially when we know Office 365 Video is converging to Microsoft Stream
I heard Blogs are moving into Video Portal. Am looking for confirmation.

There is a Uservoice request for this here.  "Ability to embed dynamic Delve Boards on SharePoint Pages as app or embed".  Any update on it?


Also is there any way to provide a link from a page to a person's Delve profile?
