Comprehensive Meeting Notes

It happens all the time – somebody makes a great point and you pause to jot it down, completely missing the next thought. Instead of getting sidetracked with note taking, ask Copilot to create meeting notes for you. The assistant will compile important points from the conversation, provide a summary of the key discussion points, and make a list of action items. Now you can remain engaged in the meeting instead of focusing on writing things down. 

Filling in the Blanks

With Copilot, you no longer have to worry about derailing a meeting you’re joining late. If your previous call goes over time, just hop on the next one and ask Copilot to catch you up on what you missed. Copilot can fill you in on what was discussed and will even let you know if you have been mentioned or assigned anything. This keeps your whole team on track and saves them from wasting the time of filling you in, while also ensuring that you don’t miss anything yourself. 

Making Meetings Easier

Overall, Copilot fills in the gaps of your meeting experience. It provides useful summaries of points made, can summarize full meetings or catch you up to speed when you’re late, and even helps you weigh pros and cons of ideas presented. Instead of missing out on the big picture from being heads down in your notebook, you can be fully engaged and be confident Copilot has you covered.
