Prerequisites

Turn Copilot features on or off in Sales Hub

  1. In the Sales Hub app, go to Change area in the lower-left corner of the page and select App Settings.

  2. Under General Settings, select Copilot.

  3. In the Set up Copilot in Dynamics 365 Sales page, select Try our newest preview features before they're rolled out to everyone to get all the Copilot preview features automatically.

  4. If your org is in a region where Azure Open AI Service endpoint isn't available but you didn't provide the consent for data movement, select Go to Power Platform admin center and follow the instructions to provide consent.

  5. Under All Dynamics 365 Sales apps, select a global setting that you want to apply to all Sales apps and then override the setting at the app-level. For example, if you want to enable Copilot only for the Sales Hub app, select Off for All Dynamics 365 Sales apps and then select On only for the Sales Hub app.

    The initial setting on the Set up Copilot in Dynamics 365 Sales page depends on the setting for the org and the app. For example, if your Power Platform admin turned Copilot on for your org but your Power Apps admin turned it off for the Sales Hub app, the initial setting in the Set up Copilot in Dynamics 365 Sales page is set to Off for Sales Hub app and On for all other Sales apps.

    The Default setting has the following behavior:

    • For orgs in North America, Copilot Chat is turned on for all Dynamics 365 Sales apps (with lead and opportunity tables). Copilot for email is turned on only if you had opted in for early access.

    • For orgs in other regions, Copilot is turned on for all Dynamics 365 Sales apps that meet the following conditions:

    • For apps that don't meet the above conditions, the Default setting turns Copilot off.

  6. Select Turn audit on to turn on audit history for the lead and opportunity tables. If auditing is already turned on for the lead and opportunity tables or globally, the Turn audit on option isn't displayed.

  7. Select Save.

    The Welcome to Copilot pane opens in the right side pane with a quick tour.

Configure fields for generating summaries and recent changes list

By default, Copilot uses a set of predefined fields to generate summaries and a list of recent changes for opportunities and leads. You can add other lead and opportunity fields and fields from related tables to make the summaries and recent changes list more relevant for your business.

  1. In the Sales Hub app, go to Change area in the lower-left corner of the page and select App Settings.

  2. Under General Settings, select Copilot.

  3. Select Opportunities or Leads. The following screenshot shows the Opportunity settings page. The Lead settings page is similar.

  4. To choose fields for generating summaries, select the Summary tab. To choose fields for generating the recent changes list, select the Recent changes tab.

    The recent changes list is generated from the audit history. If the Recent changes tab isn't available, it means that auditing is turned off globally or for the table you selected (leads or opportunities). Select Turn audit on in the notification bar to turn on audit history for all the tables in the Recent changes tab.

  5. Select Add fields.

  6. Select at least four fields, up to a maximum of 10.

    The Save button is disabled if you select fewer than 4 or more than 10 fields. If you added more than 10 fields, clear the checkbox, or select fields that you don't need and select Delete.

    In the Recent changes tab, when you add a field from a related table that doesn't have audit history turned on, Turn audit on appears in the notification bar. Select it to turn on auditing for the table. If you remove the field later, you need to turn off audit history for the table manually.

  7. Save your changes.

Configure fields for generating what's new with my sales records list

The What's new with my sales records prompt lists the sales records that were updated in the last seven days. The list is generated from the audit history of the lead, opportunity, and account tables. Depending on the record type, Copilot uses different fields to get the list of records updated:

  • For the lead and opportunity records, Copilot uses the fields in the primary table (lead or opportunity) that you had configured for generating the recent changes list. For example, if you had configured four fields from the lead table and six fields from related tables, Copilot monitors changes to only those four fields from the lead table to identify the lead records that are updated.

  • For the account records, Copilot lists the following changes:

    • Contacts, leads, and opportunities created for the account in the last seven days.
    • Changes to the fields in the Quick Find view of the account table. If you'd like to see changes to other fields, add them to the Quick Find view of your account table. Learn how to add fields to the Quick Find view.

Grant audit access to your sellers

Copilot generates the list of recent changes for leads and opportunities from the audit history. So, your sellers need access to the audit history and audit summary to view the recent changes.

  1. Sign in to the Power Platform admin center and select your environment.

  2. Select Settings > Users + permissions > Security roles.

  3. Select the security role that's assigned to your sellers, and then select the Miscellaneous Privileges tab.

  4. In the list below the tab, select Show only unassigned privileges.

  5. Select Organization as the Privilege Level for the following privileges:

    • View Audit History
    • View Audit Summary
  6. Select Save + close.

Add the Copilot page site map entry to custom sales app

When you create a custom model-driven app, you can choose a default solution to create a site map for it. However, you can choose solutions that are based on table forms only. The full-screen Copilot page is based on a URL custom control and doesn't appear in the list of solutions. You must add it to the site map manually.

Add the Copilot page to your site map by following the instructions in add site map entry to your custom app and enter or paste the following URL:

/main.aspx?&pagetype=control&controlName=PowerApps.Copilot
