Microsoft has revealed plans for a wide ranging set of new AI-based tools for Dynamics 365 applications. Branded as Dynamics 365 Copilot, the actual capabilities will vary depending on the product and will includ natural language queries, email and chat suggestions for customers, personalized email drafts to suppliers, and more.

Microsoft revealed its plans to add AI-based email reply authoring to Viva Salesin February. The new tools were built using Azure OpenAI Service and GPT. Those capabilities, now referred to as Viva Sales Copilot, are now generally available, according to Microsoft CVP for Business Applications marketing Emily He, and the company will follow that with the release of more enhancements on March 15 to create customizable emails. She wrote:

For example, a seller can generate an email that proposes a meeting time with a customer, complete with a proposed meeting date and time based on availability on the seller’s Outlook calendar.

Sellers will also be able to rate the AI-generated content. And another Viva Sales Copilot feature has reached public preview: the ability to draft a recap of a call with action items and follow-up dates, based on CRM and meeting data. 

Microsoft also has a range of the Dynamics 365 Copilot tools planned and in preview.

Dynamics 365 Customer Service Copilot will arrive first in a limited preview with a focus on expediting customer issue resolution. It will create context-specific email drafts or chat responses based on factors including the current live conversation and relevant information from trusted websites and internal documents, including knowledgebase articles and previously resolved cases.
