How do I enable Co-pilot directly in Powerpoint?

Posted on by

Hi there - purchased co-pilot license today and for the life of me cannot figure out how to enable it directly in PowerPoint. Went to Office365 dahboard and do not see any button to update license. Working on a mac if that means anything. Appreciate all the help as I need to have this functioning this weekend. Thanks!

    Hi @dkny1993 


    Here are the steps to enable Copliot in PowerPoint -


    1. Get a license for Microsoft 365 E3 or Microsoft 365 E5, and a license for Microsoft Copilot for Microsoft 365.
    2. Install the latest PowerPoint version.
    3. Open a new PowerPoint presentation or an existing one.
    4. Click on the Home tab in the ribbon at the top of the PowerPoint window.
    5. Now search for the Copilot button in the design section of the ribbon. You can find it on the right side of the ribbon, next to the Design Ideas button.
    6. Click on the Copilot button to open the Copilot panel on the right side of the PowerPoint window.
