Team Copilot: Elevate Your Team’s Collaboration

Posted June 18, 2024

Have you heard about Team Copilot yet? It’s the latest innovation in Microsoft’s suite of AI tools, set to be available later this year.

Think of Team Copilot as an advanced, AI-powered assistant designed to enhance your team’s collaboration. While Microsoft’s 365 Copilot has been a personal assistant for individual tasks like drafting emails or recapping missed meetings, Team Copilot takes it to the next level by focusing on group activities.

Here’s how Team Copilot can help your team:

  1. Meeting Facilitator During a Teams video call, Team Copilot can take notes that everyone in the meeting can see and edit. It can also create follow-up tasks, track time for each agenda item, and assist with in-person or hybrid meetings when used with Teams Rooms.
  2. Group Text Chat Assistant In group text chats within Teams, Copilot can summarize lengthy conversations to highlight the most important information. It can also answer questions from the group, making it easier to stay on track and informed without wading through endless chat history.
  3. Project Manager Team Copilot can help manage projects by creating tasks and goals within Microsoft’s Planner app. It can assign these tasks to team members and even complete some tasks itself, like drafting a blog post. It will notify team members when their input is needed.

At Uptech, we understand that productivity isn’t just about individual work. Effective teamwork is crucial. By assisting with group-oriented tasks, Team Copilot can significantly boost your overall productivity.

While Team Copilot is incredibly helpful, it’s important to note that it doesn’t replace the role of a human meeting facilitator. It won’t lead meetings or ensure inclusivity, but it will create agendas, track time, take notes, and share files.

Think of it as a business insights assistant, enhancing group interactions and meetings rather than policing comments or keeping people in line. And who knows what future updates might bring!

Team Copilot will be available in preview later this year for Microsoft 365 customers with a Copilot subscription. While it’s still in development, its potential to transform team productivity is enormous.

Keep an eye out for its release and start thinking about how it could integrate into your workflow to elevate your team’s productivity.
