How to create better work habits and focus on what matters most

FYI, this story is more than a year old

We're excited to announce the evolution of personal analytics in Office 365 with Microsoft MyAnalytics, formerly known as Delve Analytics. MyAnalytics helps you focus on what matters most by providing personalised insights about how you spend your time at work. In addition to the capabilities that had been available in Delve Analytics, MyAnalytics will allow you to stay up-to-date with important contacts, share key metrics with a coach and help you prioritise the time you spend with different groups.

Stay up-to-date with important contacts

You can soon pin important contacts from inside and outside your organisation to your MyAnalytics dashboard to get insights into how you are collaborating. For example, you might see that you're losing touch with a colleague even though she has a critical role in an upcoming project milestone. With this visibility, you can take action and reach out to her to make sure that you're both up-to-date on the latest project status.

Share key metrics with others

You'll soon be able to share your analytics with a colleague to help you stay aligned on priorities or get coaching on your work habits from a mentor. For example, you'll be able to easily share a snapshot of your meeting habits with a peer by email to get their advice on using your time more wisely. You are in control—simply share a full snapshot or even just a specific module from your MyAnalytics dashboard with anyone you choose.

Prioritise the time you spend with groups

Soon you will also be able to get insight into the way you work with groups inside your organisation. For example, you'll be able to easily track how much time you're spending on a particular project team to ensure you're focused on your top priorities. Simply add a group to your MyAnalytics dashboard to get insights into the time you spend collaborating with that group and even set group-specific goals!

Our journey to help you establish more effective work habits that started with Delve Analytics now continues with MyAnalytics.
