Writing Assistance

Easily adapt notes you’ve already written to create proposal documents or presentations. You can include relevant documents from OneNote or Word to reduce duplicating work. Copilot scans the documents and generates a first draft including all your key details. You can even include a previous proposal asking Copilot to copy the format and images so you can ensure every document you create follows your brand.

Data Analysis

Make sense of all your data. Copilot can easily analyse your spreadsheet to give you the key trends, show breakdowns and create graphs so you can easily digest your data. Working with you even further, Copilot can adapt your tables so you can easily see the trends or provide insight into ‘what if’ scenarios to give you definitive action points. To make your day-to-day creation easier, Copilot can also recommend relevant formulas with explanations of how they work.

Communication Management

Copilot works with Outlook to give you the most out of your emails. Quickly remove the signal from the noise, giving you hours of your time back. Prioritising your most important emails, Copilot will summarise your key to-do list so you can easily stay on top of your emails.

A productivity game-changer, Copilot works within your Teams so you can easily recap your meeting or ask Copilot for suggestions on any unresolved questions. At the end of your meeting, you can include a summary with meeting notes that can be sent out or included in a follow-up meeting invite.
