Microsoft Copilot – What is it and How Can it Make You More Productive?

Technology has revolutionized the way we work and Microsoft is always at the forefront of this digital transformation. One of the latest tools to hit the market is Microsoft Copilot, an AI-powered assistant that is designed to help you become more productive.

Microsoft Copilot is a new AI tool that integrates with existing Microsoft 365 products. It works alongside you, embedded in the Microsoft 365 apps you use every day. Let’s take a look at how you can take advantage of this tool to boost your productivity. 

How Can Microsoft Copilot Benefit You? 

You can take advantage of Microsoft Copilot in two ways: 

Automated Tasks 

Microsoft Copilot can help automate many of the more mundane tasks in your daily work, freeing up your time to focus on more complex and strategic tasks. For instance, if you need to design new features or optimize existing ones, you can focus your energy there instead of filling out spreadsheets or deleting emails. 

Personalized Suggestions 

Copilot’s machine learning algorithms allow it to recognize patterns and suggest solutions that you might not have thought of. These suggestions are tailored to the specific context of your data, making them much more relevant than generic suggestions.

How Does Copilot Work?

Microsoft 365 Copilot uses Natural Language Processing (NLP) and machine learning algorithms to understand the context of your data and generate suggestions based on that context. The machine learning algorithms that power Copilot were trained on a vast dataset of data from Microsoft Graph and Microsoft 365 apps, including: 

  • emails
  • chats
  • documents
  • meetings

This means that Copilot has an extensive understanding of the types of tasks you perform and can make informed recommendations. Along with all other Microsoft products, Copilot follows data security protocols to keep your company information safe. 

What Can You Do With Microsoft Copilot? 

In terms of the specific applications, Microsoft 365 Copilot’s personalized suggestions can help you complete tasks faster and more efficiently. Here are some of the things you can do with this revolutionary new tool: 

Streamline Microsoft 365 Tasks 

When using Microsoft 365 apps, Copilot can suggest text, formulas, and charts in Excel, and grammar and style recommendations in Word. 

In PowerPoint, Copilot can suggest design elements, charts, and SmartArt, allowing you to create engaging and visually appealing presentations quickly. Meanwhile, in Outlook, Copilot can clear old emails out of your inbox and automate other small tasks.

Collaborate with Business Chat 

But Microsoft Copilot isn’t just limited to the Microsoft 365 apps we know and love. With Copilot’s Business Chat, we’ve been introduced to an entirely new experience. 

Business Chat leverages existing Microsoft 365 apps and data from your calendar, meetings, contacts, chats, emails, and documents. With Business Chat, you can speak out loud to the assistant with natural language prompts like “check my schedule for this afternoon,” or “tell me how we updated the presentation.” Copilot will then provide an intelligent answer based on your calendars, email threads, and what you’ve been working on in Microsoft 365.

How Microsoft Copilot Can Make You More Productive

One of the key benefits of Microsoft 365 Copilot is its ability to increase productivity. This tool can save you a significant amount of time and effort, allowing you to focus on more complex and strategic tasks

Quick Content Creation 

By automating many of the more mundane actions, Microsoft 365 Copilot can free up your time and energy to focus on the work that ignites your creativity and sparks joy. For instance, you can generate a rough draft of an email or presentation in minutes. 

When you’re working on a creative project, Copilot can also suggest design elements, charts, and SmartArt in PowerPoint, allowing you to create engaging and visually appealing presentations quickly.

Easy Scheduling and Collaboration 

Microsoft 365 Copilot’s Business Chat feature can also enhance collaboration by generating status updates and progress reports based on your morning’s meetings, emails, and chat threads. For example, if you are a manager who needs to provide regular updates to your team about the status of a project, you could simply ask Copilot to generate an update based on the information available in your Microsoft 365 apps. This would save you a significant amount of time and effort.

Another example would be if you need to schedule a meeting with your team but are struggling to find a suitable time slot. With Microsoft Copilot, you can simply ask the assistant to suggest a time that works for everyone based on their availability in their calendars. Copilot can even help you find available meeting rooms and book them automatically.
