Topics in Microsoft apps and services apply only to work or school accounts. 

Topics are terms that you can add to your profile through your profile card or Delve. You can add topics to your profile and make it easier for people to learn more about you. Topics can be skills, projects, and even hobbies. When others search for a term that matches a topic on your profile, your name and profile picture may show up in search results across Microsoft apps and services.

View your topics

Note: If your work or school administrator has disabled certain information on your profile, some topics may not show in Delve or SharePoint.

Topics you add to your profile can show in:

  • Your profile card (under OverviewAsk me about)

  • Your profile in Delve (under Skills and Expertise > You can also ask me about)

  • Search results in SharePoint
