Copilot can help get you up to speed, fast.

With Copilot, your team can jumpstart the creative process, so they never start with a blank slate again. Copilot gives them a first draft to edit and iterate on—saving hours in writing, sourcing, and editing time.

Just open Copilot in Word and enter a prompt describing the document you’d like to create. Something like, ‘Write me an 800-word blogpost on [x topic]’ or ‘Draft a proposal for [new business partner]’. You can also use the attachment icon to let Copilot access existing documents for relevant information.

Go from basic document to a compelling presentation in seconds. Copilot can transform existing written documents into slide decks, complete with speaker notes and sources, or start a new presentation from a simple prompt or outline.

To transform a written document, open Copilot in PowerPoint and select the prompt guide. You’ll see an option to ‘Create from a file…’. Select it, find the file you’d like to build into a deck, and hit send. After a few moments, Copilot will generate a brand new slideshow, complete with eye-catching imagery and color palettes.

Not happy with a color or font? Just ask Copilot to ‘Make all the headings blue’, or ‘Change the font of the body copy to Times New Roman’. You can even add or switch out images, just by asking. Watch to learn how and try it in PowerPoint.

Find whatever you need in your files (even files you forgot existed), connect the dots across all your content, and even integrate with the apps you use to run your business.
