What Can Microsoft 365 Copilot Do?

Copilot has plenty of advanced capabilities to help you boost your productivity at work. As mentioned, the tool integrates with the existing Microsoft apps you’re already using. But how can you use it to speed up your workday?

Draft New Documents

When using Microsoft Word, Copilot can help you quickly generate a first draft. It can be difficult to focus on writing a document from scratch, especially when you have more important things to do. With Copilot, you can get ideas on demand and edit them to your liking before you send it out.

Populate Spreadsheets

Filling out Excel spreadsheets can be a time-consuming task. Copilot helps by giving automatic suggestions so you can allocate your focus to other things throughout the day.

Create Presentations

Microsoft Copilot can help you whip out PowerPoint presentations by pulling data from relevant documents. It will give you a great starting point to make small edits and direct your energy toward presenting.

Clear Your Email Inbox

Copilot can also help you organize and clear out your Outlook inbox, instead of manually clicking each box yourself.

What are Copilot’s Most Innovative Features?

Business Chat

Business Chat is one of Copilot’s most exciting new features. You can speak out loud to the assistant, just like you would to a person. For instance, you can say “summarize my schedule for today,” and the assistant will generate a personalized response based on what you’ve been doing on Microsoft 365 apps that day.

Machine Learning and Natural Language Processing

Natural Language Processing (NLP) and machine learning algorithms are key features of Microsoft 365 Copilot. The model was trained on data from Microsoft 365 apps, so it can provide automated assistance and personalized responses.

Automation and Personalization

Copilot can find patterns across your Microsoft 365 apps, allowing it to give you personalized suggestions. For instance, when you’re filling out an Excel spreadsheet, Copilot may populate the field for you automatically, based on other documents you’ve been working on that day. Instead of giving generic suggestions, they are specific and helpful to you.

What are the Benefits of Microsoft Copilot?


Instead of spending time generating reports, scheduling meetings, and creating documents from scratch, you can lean on Copilot to do these tasks for you. This will save you a lot of time and allow you to focus on more complex tasks.


With Business Chat, you can improve collaboration with your team. This feature is helpful for both team members and leaders. You can generate progress reports, schedule meetings, and gather updates on everyone’s tasks.
