  • A project manager uses Copilot to come up with meeting agendas for teams to make sure that important topics are touched upon. Prior to the meeting, a project manager asks, “Make an agenda for our project status update that has a budget, timeline, and possible risks as talking points.” Copilot will generate a structured agenda for easy review.
  • A logistics manager asks Copilot to summarize shipping reports in Word, quickly identifying potential delays and cost-saving opportunities.
