Have you heard about Team Copilot yet? It’s the newest addition to Microsoft’s AI suite, set to launch later this year.

Think of Team Copilot as an advanced, AI-powered assistant designed to improve team collaboration. While Microsoft’s 365 Copilot has been a personal assistant for tasks like drafting emails or summarizing missed meetings, Team Copilot elevates this by focusing on group activities.

Here are three key ways Team Copilot can assist your team:

Meeting Facilitator During Teams video calls, Team Copilot can take notes that everyone can view and edit. It can create follow-up tasks, track time for each agenda item, and assist with in-person or hybrid meetings when used with Teams Rooms.

Group Text Chat Assistant In Teams group chats, Copilot can summarize lengthy conversations to highlight the most crucial information. It can also answer group questions, making it easier to stay on track without sifting through extensive chat history.

Project Manager Team Copilot helps manage projects by creating tasks and goals within Microsoft’s Planner app. It assigns tasks to team members and can even complete some tasks itself, like drafting a blog post. It notifies team members when their input is needed.

Productivity isn’t just about individual work; it’s also about effective teamwork. By assisting with group-oriented tasks, Team Copilot can significantly boost your overall productivity.

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

It’s more of a business insights assistant, aiding with group interactions and meetings rather than moderating comments or enforcing rules. But 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 immense.

Keep an eye out for its release and consider how it could enhance your team’s workflow.
