Updated October 29, 2021: Based on learnings from our early rings, we have made the decision to make additional changes before we proceed with the rollout. We will deliver a new Message center post once we re-start the rollout. Thank you for your patience.
We’re adding new features to the profile card in Microsoft 365 and beginning in early August. Users in your organization will be able to add topics directly to their profile card in Microsoft 365 apps and services or through Office Delve.
Topics are terms that individuals can add to their profile through their profile card or Office Delve.
Users can add topics to their profile to make it easier for people to learn more about them.
Topics can be skills, projects, and even hobbies.
When others search for a term that matches a topic on their profile, their name and profile picture may show up in search results across Microsoft apps.
