See suggested documents to follow

When you follow documents that interest you and update your profile to add subjects to your Ask Me About list, you’ll start to see automated suggestions for other documents and files to follow in your OneDrive for Business library. Suggestions may be for documents that your colleagues or large numbers of people in your organization are already following.

 Note    The capabilities described here depend on whether your organization has set up and customized personal sites and profiles. See your SharePoint site administrator for details.
