Copilot for PowerBI

Copilot for PowerBI is now coming out in preview, and the feature will be enabled for all tenants. The feature can enhance data interaction and report creation using generative AI. If the organization is not ready for this roll-out, there are ways to restrict this feature based on security groups. There are controls to include or exclude groups.  One concern organizations have is the possibility of data being processed in a datacenter in a different region than their tenant. This can also be controlled by not allowing the usage of datacenters outside your region. Sign into the admin portal for PowerBI and check the settings associated with Copilot

Let the organization know when to expect you in the office, And Windows Mail is going away.

As hybrid work seems to be the new normal for a lot of employees previously always bound to the office, the challenge of finding a perfect time for a physical meeting seems to be the new headache for many of our colleagues. There is a feature in both Teams and Outlook which could make this a lot easier. This feature has been around for some time, but the experience hasn't been unified until now. Now it's possible to set your locations both from Teams and Outlook, and make changes from either application.

Personally, I have set a schedule in Outlook, and I make ad-hoc changes in either application when I have changed my schedule. This way "everybody" knows I am in the office every day from 9-5, except Thursdays when I usually work from home.

There is a good post on techcommunity I recommend going though, to understand how it works and how you can use it.

For those of you who are using the Windows 10 or Windows 11 native mail client, the native client is going away. The new client is called Outlook for Windows. This client has been in preview for Microsoft 365 subscribers for some time, but it is now also rolling out to private user accounts as well. 

You can read about the new client, and how to get started in this blog post.
