Yammer leads the way at intranets event in Dublin

Social intranet – Unily

Delighted to be at an event this week organised by Brightstarr and Microsoft Ireland about intranets, Office 365, the digital workplace and even Yammer. Of course SharePoint got a mention or two! Hosted at the Microsoft office in Sandyford, it was great to see around 30 people at the event.

Brightstarr had organised it to promote their Unily intranet product (based on SharePoint of course). They had brought in one of their key customers in Ireland, ESB Networks, to talk about how they had implemented it in their organisation in the past year or so.

We also had Simon Daly from Microsoft taking us the role of Office 365 in modern intranets.     »» Continue reading

How to get the URL link to a Delve profile

Delve-Office365-Andrew-Gilleran

I was ages searching for a solution to this. I wanted to have a link on an intranet to a user’s own Delve profile in SharePoint Online. Delve is Microsofts ‘personal search and discovery tool.

Relatively simple you would think. I’d seen JavaScript options which were way too tricky for me. So a big hat tip Gregory Zelfond, the SharePoint Maven for this link.

This is the URL you can use.

https://[yourcompanyname]-my.sharepoint.com/_layouts/15/me.aspx?v=profile

[Update]

https://yourcompanyname-my.sharepoint.com/person.aspx is another option. Thanks to Coxy on Twitter for that.

By the way here is a useful admin guide to Delve. Well worth reading.

How to use Microsoft Delve in Outlook

Delve is the output from the brain in Office 365. It shows everything that you are working on and who you are working with. It’s artificial intelligence on a massive yet personal scale.

Microsoft definition:
Delve helps you discover the information that’s likely to be most interesting to you right now – across Office 365. Find information about people – and through people – and help others find you.
