Microsoft 365 Copilot

This is a big topic, so we’re providing a recap here, and plan to have some webinars in the near future.

Copilot is an AI product (Artificial Intelligence). More than Open AI’s ChatGPT embedded into Microsoft 365, it combines AI with the Microsoft 365 apps you already use, taking advantage of natural language for your favorite commands and the many features you may not use regularly in Word, Power Point, Excel, and so on.

Like Chat GPT and other IT programs, there is a learning curve to get things up and running, but over and over again we hear that the initial efforts are worth it.  Rather than starting with a blank Word document or empty Power Point, this tool can provide a draft or starting place to help you focus on the creative process, taking some of the time-consuming drudgery out of the work.

Copilot is integrated in to M365 and automatically inherits all your company’s security, compliance and privacy policies, as well as two-factor authentication (MFA). Use it to create, summarize, analyze, collaborate, and automate specific business content. Copilot knows how to execute commands across the apps such as ’automate this slide.’  Chris told us, ‘I think that Microsoft Copilot is going to be one of the biggest changes in technology in a VERY long time.’ Stay tuned! – CMW
