Beyond CRM Applications: The reach of Copilot extends far beyond CRM applications. Microsoft has integrated Copilot AI features into various Business Applications, including Word, PowerPoint, and Teams. This means you can leverage AI across multiple platforms to supercharge your productivity.

The Dynamic Capabilities of Copilot: Think of Copilot as your organization's very own ChatGPT. It taps into internal knowledge resources, customer emails, CRM data, and even external data sources to provide personalized and contextually relevant responses. Built upon Microsoft's robust security, compliance, privacy, and responsible AI framework, Copilot ensures the safety of your data and maintains transparency in sourcing information.

Copilot lightens your workload by enhancing collaboration and automating tasks, granting you more time to focus on what truly matters. Let's explore the remarkable features of Copilot across various Dynamics 365 applications.

Copilot in Viva Sales

Viva Sales, coupled with Copilot, empowers sellers to streamline their workflows by automatically capturing data from Outlook and Teams. This eliminates the need for manual data entry and reduces application-switching, enabling sellers to prioritize their selling activities.

Copilot in Viva Sales simplifies email creation, allowing sellers to compose intelligent responses in seconds. Whether it's replying to inquiries, drafting proposals, or providing discounts, Copilot's intelligent automation has sellers covered. The AI assistant retrieves relevant data from Dynamics 365 to populate email responses, ensuring accuracy and transparency.

Moreover, Copilot seamlessly integrates with live Teams meetings, providing real-time access to CRM data and relevant customer interactions. Sellers can request meeting recaps, receive prompt answers to unresolved questions, and even retrieve information from sales materials, all within the Teams interface. Copilot's ability to summarize meetings and generate AI-driven email drafts further optimizes seller productivity.

Copilot in Marketing

Email marketing can be a daunting task, requiring marketers to capture their audience's attention with engaging content. Copilot in Dynamics 365 Marketing comes to the rescue by generating up to 20 email content suggestions based on key messaging points described by the marketer.

This feature proves invaluable when marketers face creative blocks or struggle to kickstart their email campaigns. With AI-generated outlines, marketers can quickly create rough drafts and use them as a foundation for further refinement. Copilot ensures consistency with previous marketing messages, adhering to brand style, tone, and structure.

Moreover, Copilot simplifies the creation of real-time marketing segments by using natural language queries. Marketers can swiftly build criteria without navigating complex data structures. By typing queries like "contacts with email addresses that allow bulk emails based in London," Copilot suggests data structures that can be fine-tuned to include additional details.

The Copilot feature in Dynamics 365 Marketing is expected to reach general availability in April 2023, empowering marketers with efficient content creation and streamlined audience segmentation.

Copilot in Customer Service

For service agents, Copilot proves to be an invaluable asset, significantly reducing the time spent on reviewing past cases and knowledge articles. By accessing Copilot within the Dynamics Customer Service workspace, agents can effortlessly retrieve helpful resources, resolve complex customer issues, and craft effective responses.

Imagine conversing with an internal chatbot that understands your queries in natural language. Copilot in Customer Service operates just like that. Whether you need troubleshooting steps for a specific issue or seek guidance on resolving customer problems, Copilot has the answers. Agents can verify and modify responses before sending them to customers, enhancing the overall efficiency of customer service operations.

Additionally, Copilot's integration with Outlook simplifies the process of drafting email responses. By selecting response types such as scheduling calls or requesting more information, Copilot generates draft responses that can be quickly reviewed, revised, and sent to customers. While this feature is currently in limited preview in the US region, its potential to transform service agents' work is eagerly anticipated.

Copilot in Power Apps

Power Apps users, both beginners and experts alike, can now benefit from Copilot's capabilities. Building upon the existing feature that allows natural language queries to create Power Automate flows, Copilot in Power Apps takes it a step further. Users can now create apps without writing a single line of code by simply describing their requirements in natural language.

For example, if you want to create an app for tracking employee expense reports, you can just write, "create an application to enable employees to submit their time and expense reports." Copilot will handle the rest, creating the app and providing a sample table structure for the data.

Once the app is created, Copilot's conversational intelligence is integrated into the app, allowing users to ask questions about the underlying data in natural language. Whether it's searching for specific information or gaining insights, users can effortlessly interact with their app.

Even existing apps can benefit from Copilot. Users can add Copilot's conversational capabilities to filter, analyze, and derive insights from data, revolutionizing how users work with Power Apps.

While currently in limited preview in the US region, Copilot in Power Apps holds immense potential and is poised to transform app development and data analysis processes.
