After Microsoft announced the general availability of Microsoft 365 Copilot, we observed the anticipation among users eager to explore this innovative AI service. Please visit the Official Microsoft Blog to catch up with the details of announcement: Announcing Microsoft Copilot, your everyday AI companion
Jason Wynn, M365 MVP, is an active community leader in United Kingdom as a committee of multiple event teams such as Collabdays and Commsverse and a technical writer. He featured Microsoft 365 Copilot on the tech website for IT and business professionals, TechFinitive. In his article, What is Microsoft 365 Copilot? Guide by a Microsoft MVP, he provided in-depth insights on the subject.
Let’s hear from Jason to learn more about Microsoft 365 Copilot from his additional ideas.
What kind of feedback on Microsoft 365 Copilot did you hear from your community members since it was announced in March 2023?
The desire and demand is there. I’ve seen a massive appetite to learn more and understand how it can work for them. The desire I’ve seen has been outside of the dev field and more aligned with how people can improve their work/life and accuracy with Microsoft Copilot rather than simply writing code and validating it on GitHub or other platforms. Most of the people with whom I work don’t dev day to day, so it doesn’t have as much impact (immediately) to my circle of impact.
There are many people who still imagine that AI technology is for developers. How do you encourage non-technical users (example: general office workers) to start using AI such as Microsoft 365 Copilot?
I think Copilot is far more than that. Copilot allows us to work more intelligently, which is brilliant for me as I’ve got a horrible memory. We can intelligently recap for meetings and ask Copilot what I’ve missed or what information is required to provide actions allocated to me while trying my best to multi-task, which I’ve agreed to, when in reality I need to pace myself. I can let Copilot help pace me in this instance; in addition, it can then streamline the work I’m doing by helping me create collateral faster, either through Microsoft Word or PowerPoint in pulling together the information I may or may not already have within my enterprise network and allowing it to build and bolster the output in which I’m creating.
Jason details various features of Copilot in his articles as follows. Explore them to discover features that can enhance your work. And he says, “I’m an open book, feel free to ask any questions”.
