Ready to Boost Your SharePoint with AI? Discover the Power of Copilot and Beyond!

We are thrilled to introduce our HumanTech Partners insight series to support the deployment of Microsoft’s AI feature, Copilot, within the context of SharePoint.

This series of posts focuses on « the arrival of AI in the life of SharePoint » and builds upon one of Frank POIREAU our consultant recent participation in a collective work of the production of 5 books available online. 

This post includes excerpts from his book, which we hope will drive your interest in reading it in its entirety (and available online here). Among the various topics covered, we delve into the exciting subject of what Copilot brings to SharePoint!

As we enter the summer of 2023, our M365 Tenants hosted in Europe are yet to have Copilot. However, concerning SharePoint, you can already benefit from AI assistance while waiting for Copilot to be available.

Through the Edge and Bing updates known as « the new Bing, » you can leverage the AIs of OpenAI, ChatGPT, and Dall-e (the book provides insights on how to effectively communicate with AI to generate prompts) : 

« The Bing plug-in on Edge integrates a window for utilizing the new Bing. This Edge Bing plug-in not only allows you to use the new Bing without navigating to the URL https://www.bing.com/ enabling browsing and work on another website—but it also provides two additional application tabs: The Compose tab and The Insights tab.”

As depicted above, the Compose tab enables you to request the new Bing AI to write or summarize a text, based on a request of up to 2000 characters: 

  • Five stylistic tones are available by default: professional, casual, enthusiastic, informative, and funny. 
  • Four text formats are provided: paragraph, email, blog post, or a list of ideas. 
  • Additionally, the text length is configurable.

The validation button displays the text « Generate a draft, » (Générer un brouillon) emphasizing that the AI’s composition work’s relevance can only be assessed by you. The composition is presented in a preview window below the « Generate a draft » button, which offers editing features, navigation between successive drafts, and text copying (Office shortcuts also function).

Beneath the preview window, suggestion bubbles are provided to refine your request by adding an example, specifying the sources used, or even reducing the text. What sets it apart from Bing is the « Add to Site » button, allowing you to insert the text directly into your current web page being edited.

Therefore, this button enables you to insert the generated text precisely where the cursor is located on the web page. Consequently, this AI function works within various contexts: when publishing a post in MS Teams, composing an email in Outlook on the web, editing a page with the Text WebPart in SharePoint Online, or even in SharePoint Server, provided that your workstation has access to both your SharePoint and the internet! 

Regardless, it is essential to exercise caution before using Bing in Edge, ensuring that you are not interacting with sensitive data (as it could pose a risk of data leakage), as these data are processed outside your 365 Tenant.

We will delve deeper into this aspect in the next blog post of the series, which examines the differences between ChatGPT from OpenAI and Microsoft Copilot: « AI and SharePoint » Series – Episode 2: « What are the differences between ChatGPT and Microsoft Copilot? » »

We are excited to support your organization in harnessing the potential of Microsoft’s AI offering and deploying Copilot within your SharePoint environment. Stay tuned for further insights in our upcoming blog posts!
