What is Delve?

According to Microsoft’s website Delve is defined as this:

“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.

You don’t have to remember the title of a document or where it’s stored. Delve shows you documents no matter where they’re stored in OneDrive for Business or SharePoint in Office 365.

Delve never changes any permissions, so you’ll only see documents that you already have access to. Other people will not see your private documents. Learn more about privacy.”

  • Delve is not installed on your computer when you install Office365, it’s available when you log  into the Office365 portal.  You can also install the app on your mobile devices!    When I log into Office365 my page looks like this:

You can see my most recent documents and open them from there.  You can see an Organizational Chart.  People, I know and work with frequently.  I can even save favorite documents there as well.

I can also search for other things in Delve if I can’t remember the name of it but I know what it was about.  See here a search for MDM documents:

More tips and tricks with Delve next week!


Changing your password in Windows 10 and Office 365

You need to change your password in Windows 10.  How do you do that?   Simply hit the keys on your keyboard: Control-Alt-Delete and this screen will come up.   See the 4th choice down “Change a Password” this will change the Windows 10/Network Password.change-a-password

Your password should be at least 8 characters, a capital letter, a small letter, a number and a symbol.

After you change your password eventually you will need to change your Office365 password.   Outlook will stop sending and receiving email.  The best way to be able to tell this is by the photo below.

If this happens, go up to the top ribbon bar and select the Send and Receive tab.   You should see this symbol, where it says:  Type Exchange Password and Connect.


When you click on this icon it should bring up this screen.


Type in your new password and make sure to click Remember my credentials otherwise it will ask you this about every 5 minutes.  Annoying!

Remember if you have PipeLiner on your computer you will need to update your Pipeliner password as well.   Here is a link on how to do that in case you have forgotten.
