It seems like the ability to add search results (files/pages/videos) to boards have been lost in the latest Delve update as results are no longer displayed as cards. Is this intentional? Without the ability to add search results, Boards start becoming obsolete in my opinion.

Elsa is right. Delve now generates search results in a list rather than cards. You do not have the option to select an item from the list and add it to a board, as you can with the documents shown elsewhere (as in "Recent Documents" in the "Me" view).

The Delve home page is the same as before. What has changed is the option to add an item found in a search to a board... You could never add an email to a board before, so that's not the issue.

I see list view in one tenant and cards in another one. But in the one with cards, there was a list view (briefly until it changed back to cards) so I wonder what the end result will be? Cards or lists..

The search view has just changed to cards again in my tenant. I assume that Microsoft listened and is now figuring out how to combine the best of the two ways of presenting found information. The "old" view supports boards, so that's good. The new presented boards and people that matched the search, both of which are interesting ways to locate information. I think an amalagation of the two will do the trick.

It's also reasonable to say that Microsoft uses a similar search experience for the SharePoint Online home page. I imagine that one of the reasons why they missed boards out is that they simply forgot that Delve has boards (and people) whereas SPO simply concentrates on documents.

Thanks for your comments. You are correct that we are listening to your feedback and that this is one of the reasons why we have decided to take an extra round of implementation before we roll out the latest Delve search bits. We will make sure Add to board and Favorite is supported before we turn the new search experience on for you again.
It is also correct that you see a similar experience in SharePoint. We are basically trying to converge search experiences to one familiar "form-factor", which you will see more frequent updates to going forward. Thanks again for your feedback!

Hi @Bernt Ivar Olsen, Thanks for the update. Is there an ETA on this? Also, when you say "converge search experiences" - would Delve Search & SharePoint Search have similar behaviour, excepting Delve would show personal search results first?

Hi, sorry - I missed this update. We are in the process of rolling this out again. The new UX is with Compass users currently and is expected in First Release within a couple of weeks. When I say "converge" I mean that the experiences will have similar UX and similar results. In Delve the focus will be on people; in SP Home it will be on sites, as today. Both Delve and SP Home will likely benefit from personal results for documents and other entities.
