Microsoft Copilot is an AI-powered assistant that helps users improve their productivity and experience with M365 applications. Copilot can be used to provide suggestions, summarise information, answer questions, and assist with tasks. Copilot is designed to act like a knowledgeable assistant, providing users with the information and guidance they need to work more efficiently.
Our Board member, Hannah Gibbons, has been exploring Copilot for the past few weeks and shares her experience with us.
Exploring Microsoft Copilot
When I first heard about Microsoft Copilot from Simon Singh at the 2023 AdmiNZ conference, I eagerly awaited the launch. As a lifelong lover of technology (for fun), I was excited to test out the tool designed to act like a knowledgeable assistant, providing users with the information and guidance they need to work more efficiently.
When exploring Copilot, I wanted to find ways that Copilot could help me be more efficient in my daily work. I was looking for time gains, more productive meetings, quick access to information and something that would make me go “WOW!”. I wasn’t disappointed.
Having really enjoyed using Copilot to date, I am looking forward to seeing the growth in technology and the evolution of administrative and business support.
Should we fear AI? No. Embrace AI and learning new technology – get involved and have a go! Remember, this is Copilot, not autopilot.
After using Copilot for a variety of tasks over the past few weeks, I wanted to share my top tips with you.
Disclaimer: I am by no means an expert; this is from my personal experience and exploration.
