Microsoft’s AI technology, Copilot, was previously introduced for Microsoft 365 applications and SharePoint, and will be rolling out for Microsoft Viva later in 2023 to help organizations improve workforce productivity and engagement. Let’s dive deeper into what Viva Copilot entails and how it will help streamline processes within organizations.
What is Microsoft Viva Copilot?
Microsoft acknowledges the importance of prioritizing employee engagement to provide better business outcomes and successes, which is why they are introducing Microsoft Viva Copilot, next-generation AI designed to boost productivity and engagement across organizations. Viva Copilot is built on the Microsoft 365 Copilot system, which harnesses the power of Microsoft 365 apps, large language models (LLMs), and data from the Microsoft Graph. Viva Copilot also utilizes the data from Viva apps to help you engage with and understand your workforce to boost productivity.
Just like Microsoft 365 Copilot, Microsoft Viva Copilot inherits your security, compliance, and privacy policies to adhere to Microsoft’s approach to Responsible AI. Let’s dive into some of the ways Viva Copilot can simplify your day-to-day processes.
Viva Copilot Features
Viva Copilot offers a variety of features to help boost engagement and productivity in your organization, including:
- Simplified Goal Setting
Copilot in Viva Goals simplifies goal setting by providing draft OKR (objectives and key results) recommendations based on existing documents, summarizing status, identifying blockers, consolidating data, and suggesting next steps.
- Personalized Messages
Copilot in Viva Engage helps leaders create posts by providing prompts or trending topics, and these posts can be personalized by suggesting edits to tone and length, to help drive authenticity and engagement.
- Tailored Training
Copilot in Viva Learning suggests curated learning collections and tailored knowledge summaries for specific roles, making it easier to train your employees and enabling them to carry out their day-to-day roles more effectively.
You can easily utilize Microsoft Viva features within your Microsoft Teams environment, and can even bring your intranet into Microsoft Teams with Viva Connections.
