    Hi @AdamK11 can you send me a private message with the list of environment ids where you need the feature enabled?

    Hi @AdamK11 -- now that Microsoft Ignite announcements are official: yes 🙂

     

    Copilot Studio is the new name for Power Virtual Agents – the major difference is that on top of what PVA already did, you can now use Copilot Studio to extend 1st party copilots (e.g., Copilot for Microsoft 365).

    You can still create/extend standalone chatbots – it’s just that they’re now referred to as “copilots” in the UI.

     

    You can refer to these two blog articles:

    Hi @HenryJammes !

     

    Short question: are you going to rename the PVAs to Copilots?

     

    Thanks!

    @HenryJammes Thanks for the quick reply. With this Option we have a temporary solution now.

    Hi @AdamK11 

     

    We're working on updating release plans, but we're talking months.

    You can still create bots on the classic version of PVA by choosing this option:

    Hi @HenryJammes !

     

    We face the same Issue. Unfortunately, there is no information about the planned release anywhere (see links).

     

    The major problem is this: This feature was already available in the 1st Generation PVAs, and as there is no way to create "old" PVAs, already productive "Azure Bot Solutions with PVA Skills" are unusable after the introduction of the new PVAs without this feature. This is currently a major loss of functionality.

     

    Please provide at least a time range for the GA! Are we talking about weeks or months?

     

    Thanks,

    Adam

    Hi @Palanikumar 

     

    This feature is in development and should land soon, although I don't have an ETA to share yet.
