Leverage Microsoft 365 AI Innovations

Microsoft 365 has a powerful suite of cloud-based productivity tools that can help you work smarter and faster, and as of January 2024, Copilot is now available to businesses of all sizes.

Microsoft has consistently been at the forefront of innovation. M365 was one of the very first all-in-one cloud tools, introduced as Office 365 in 2013. Now, Microsoft and its business tools are at the leading edge of generative AI.

The Microsoft 365 platform has been adding some amazing AI innovations that sit inside tools like Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Teams, and more. If you know how to use them, these smart features can enhance your experience and significantly boosting your productivity.

In this blog, we will explore some of the ways you can leverage Microsoft 365’s new AI innovations.

Microsoft Copilot: A Game-Changer in Collaboration

Microsoft Copilot is the crown jewel of Microsoft’s AI innovations and it’s now officially available for businesses of all sizes. It’s designed to be your virtual collaborator. It can help you generate code, write documents, and craft emails. This AI-powered tool is built on the foundations of OpenAI’s ChatGPT technology. This enables it to understand context and anticipate your needs, as well as generate content in a remarkably human-like manner.

Here are some of the tools in the Microsoft universe that incorporate Copilot:

  • Word
  • Excel
  • PowerPoint
  • Outlook
  • Teams
  • Edge
  • Windows
  • Bing
  • Dynamics 365 Sales

How can you take advantage of the benefits offered by Microsoft Copilot?

Here are a few ways to jump on the added efficiency and time-savings they bring.

1. Speed Up Document Creation

Copilot can help with drafting a report, crafting a presentation, or composing an email. It provides intelligent suggestions, helping you articulate your thoughts more effectively. It speeds up the writing process and ensures your content is clear, concise, and tailored to your audience.

2. Enhance Your Teams Meeting Experience

One of the key strengths of Copilot is its ability to enhance collaboration across teams. It can create coherent and context-aware responses, including meeting notes and action lists.

Another helpful feature is the ability to catch up on what you’ve missed. Have you arrived late to a Teams meeting? You can just ask Copilot to summarise the important points of the conversation so far.

3. Create PowerPoints with Ease

Do you have a PowerPoint that you need help with? The AI features in PPT can create a slide deck for you based on text prompts. It can tap into Microsoft’s stock images to fill your slides and suggest text to use based on your presentation topic. It can also reorganise your slides for a better presentation flow.

4. Enjoy Smart Business Insights in Excel

Another new AI innovation in Microsoft 365 is Excel Ideas. This feature can help you analyse and visualise your data with ease. Excel Ideas can automatically detect patterns and trends in your data, and suggest charts, tables, and summaries that best suit your needs.

You can also use Excel Ideas to ask natural language questions about your data, such as, “What is the average sales by region?” or “Which product has the highest profit margin?”. You’ll get instant answers in the form of charts or formulas.

5. Save Time in Outlook with AI Help

We all get those long emails from time to time – the ones that you push to the bottom of your inbox for when you have more time. Well, the new Copilot feature in Outlook can help. Just ask it to summarise the key points of an email for you. You can also use Copilot in Outlook to help write and respond to emails.

A Future of Intelligent Productivity

As we embrace the era of intelligent productivity, Microsoft 365 becomes more powerful. Its new AI innovations pave the way for a more efficient work environment.

By incorporating these capabilities into your daily workflow, you’re staying competitive and setting the pace for the future of work.
