Will one employee take over the tasks of an entire department in the future and only deal with the distribution of tasks to the AI and the acceptance of the results while former employees stand in line at job centers? Probably not. Instead, the "Microsoft Copilot" will take over the part of the work that is less related to an employee's skills and knowledge. Repetitive, tedious, and, above all, simple tasks can be completed much more quickly.
Hard to imagine? We'll show below how Microsoft 365 Copilot can help with specific tasks.
Many contents of e-mail communication are the same every time: there is a greeting, a reply, a question or an update, and closing words. Microsoft Copilot also knows this recurring structure.
That's why commands like: "Write to Mr. XY that I have been waiting for an answer to the offer for weeks and that he should finally say whether he wants to or not - in nice words, but with emphasis" are no problem for Microsoft Copilot. Within seconds, the assistant creates a suitable mail for you, you read over it once, correct minor details, and send it.
Companies define colors, fonts, logos, and designs for their corporate identity. In addition, there are precise internal ideas regarding the design of slides and presentations. With the correct voice command, Microsoft 365 Copilot picks this information up and puts your instructions and ideas into practice in PowerPoint. For example, sales must be shown in bar charts, the distribution among the business units in pie charts, and the slides should have little text. What would otherwise have costed you hours of work can be done much more quickly and easily.
Excel and Word
A similar picture emerges with Excel and Word. For example, tell Microsoft Copilot, "Create an overview of quarterly figures, highlight irregular variances in color, and use bar charts to visualize the data," and it will do just that.
Working with Word documents is even easier for the system. As a rule, the commands here refer only to the creation of texts or the formatting of documents.
