What is Microsoft Copilot?

Craft text, formulas, and code: Say goodbye to writer's block and repetitive data entry. Copilot can whip up emails, reports, presentations, and even code snippets, saving you precious time and effort.
Unravel data mysteries and answer your burning questions: Need to extract insights from your data? Copilot can analyze documents, emails, and spreadsheets to answer your questions and even generate reports, making you a data whisperer in no time.

Supercharge your team collaboration: Brainstorm ideas, share knowledge, and work together seamlessly with Copilot's AI-powered collaboration features. Think of it as your team's secret weapon for ultimate synergy.
Benefits of the Microsoft Copilot in Power Platform
With Microsoft Copilot, you can enhance your Microsoft Power Platform experience by creating apps, flows, and chatbots, analyzing data, summarizing information, replying to messages, generating ideas, and more. However, these features are not supported in all regions and languages.
You may have to enable data transfer across regions to use them, depending on where your environment is located. To enable Copilot in Power Platform, follow these steps:
Log in to the Power Platform admin center.
On the left side panel, choose Environments.
Choose your environment.
On the Generative AI features card, choose Edit.
After enabling, you can use Copilot in different aspects of the Power Platform:
Power Apps: You can use Copilot to make a Power Apps canvas app. The AI Copilot Excel to App feature can help you create the app faster.
Also, Power Apps Ideas can help you write and improve formulas, adding more features to your app2.
Power Automate: Copilot in Power Automate makes automation tasks easier, saving you time and energy. It's easy to use and helps you make workflows effectively.
Power Virtual Agents: You can make bots with Copilot in Power Virtual Agents. Copilot uses the power of GPT-3 to create topics, trigger phrases and respond to your bots.
Keep in mind that the use of Copilot and generative AI features requires data movement across regions, and Microsoft may keep prompt and output data for up to 30 days.
