Microsoft introduced Copilot in SharePoint
Microsoft announced the introduction of Copilot in SharePoint as the next major wave during Microsoft 365 Conference (May 2 to 4, 2023). With Copilot, SharePoint is trying to simplify the experience for content authors with fewer manual steps and the help of AI. The vision aims to unleash site owners, news authors, page creators, and portal administrators to write, brand, publish, and share content with ease. It’s built on the Copilot System, which combines large language models with data in Microsoft Graph. It helps to turn texts, existing document or presentation into tools for creating and editing SharePoint sites and pages. This is within the existing Microsoft commitments to data security and privacy in the enterprise. Copilot also claims to take care of the full spectrum of solid web design, that is branding and theming, typography and fonts, grid and layout, video and imagery, and animations and motion. The brand center in SharePoint helps to specify fonts, colors, logos, and other design elements that reflect the identity of organization, products, subsidiaries etc.
