Copilot for Microsoft 365 is a powerful tool that can help you save time, improve your productivity and enhance your communication - however, there are considerations you should discuss as an organisation prior to using Copilot which Softcat can help assist with.


Data should be in the correct place (M365 tenant), with the correct permissions (users have just enough access to work) and maintained appropriately (out of date documents removed and archived)

As with any tool, Copilot is only as good as the users operating it. Educating users on how and where to use Copilot and training them to give clear prompts is vital to the success of a Copilot implementation

Copilot is not a replacement for human creativity and judgment - it's Copilot not Autopilot!
