Get information ready for search, put key prerequisites in place, and assign licenses to prepare for the next transformation in how we work with Microsoft 365 Copilot.

Copilot leverages large language models that interact with your organization's data using the Microsoft Graph to generate personalized experiences with related context, reducing the steps to find the information you need and generate content. By design, Copilot respects user-specific permissions to any content or information it retrieves, and only generates responses based on information that users explicitly have permission to access.

Join Jeremy Chapman, Director of Microsoft 365, as he shares admin steps to get started, by:

1. Getting your organization's information ready for search - with Just Enough Access permissions in place. This is a best practice, whether you plan to deploy Microsoft 365 Copilot or not. 
2. Putting Microsoft 365 Copilot prerequisites in place. This includes the having the right Microsoft cloud apps and services running for each user with access to Microsoft 365 Copilot, and
3. Assigning Microsoft 365 Copilot licensing to users and groups to provide them access.

And finally, with everything prepared and ready, it's important to have a plan in place to drive user adoption and optimize results by creating a center of excellence - as you would with other app and service - rollout to let people share easily share what's working best for them and find help from internal champions.
