Feature details

Using Microsoft Copilot Studio, makers can extend custom copilots by creating connector plugins using out of the box or custom connectors. By following step by step prompts, users will be able to connect to a data source, specify the actions they would like copilots to execute, provide sample questions for users to get started with their queries, provide adaptive cards to present data in easy-to-understand formats, and more.
