Introducing Microsoft 365 Copilot, the AI-powered assistant that’s about to transform the way you use Microsoft apps in a huge way.
What is Microsoft 365 Copilot?
Microsoft 365 Copilot is an AI-powered assistant that helps users get the most out of their Microsoft 365 apps. It’s like having a personal assistant sitting in your Office apps, ready to answer your questions, help you with tasks, and provide personalised recommendations.
Microsoft 365 Copilot works across all M365 apps. This includes:
- and more
So whether you’re working on a document, scheduling a meeting, or collaborating with a team, Copilot is there to assist you.
How does Microsoft 365 Copilot work?
Copilot uses AI and machine learning to understand users’ needs. It provides personalised help based on data from users’ interactions with Microsoft 365 apps. This means that Copilot learns your usage patterns and offers recommendations based on your preferences.
For example, if you frequently use certain features in Excel, Copilot will learn this and offer suggestions when it detects that you’re working on a similar task.
Or, say you’re working on a presentation in PowerPoint and struggling with design. Copilot can offer design suggestions based on your company’s brand guidelines.
Copilot can also help users with common tasks, such as scheduling meetings and managing emails. Users can simply ask Copilot for help, and it will take care of the rest.
Benefits of using Microsoft 365 Copilot
Microsoft 365 Copilot provides personalised help based on usage patterns and preferences. This means that users get the help they need when they need it, without having to search for solutions on their own.
Instead of spending time searching for a solution online when you’re stuck or trying to figure it out on your own, you can simply ask Microsoft 365 Copilot for help. Microsoft 365 Copilot can also help users get more out of their Microsoft 365 apps. Many users may not be aware of all the features and capabilities of their Microsoft 365 apps. With Copilot, they can discover new ways to work more efficiently and effectively.
Microsoft 365 Copilot can help users save time on common tasks, such as scheduling meetings and formatting documents. It can also take on many information-gathering tasks, like summarising meeting notes. This saves users considerable time, especially for manual tasks such as searching for information.
Microsoft 365 Copilot can provide solutions when users are stuck on a task. The tool can also help users struggling with an Excel chart or table. Instead of having to figure out how to generate it, they can simply give a command to Copilot to do it for them.
Microsoft Copilot handles tasks that go beyond what business apps have historically done. For example, you can use it in PowerPoint to create a presentation for you. Use a command such as, “Create a six-slide presentation based on (this) document.” You can also tell it to find appropriate Microsoft stock photos and insert them.
