New Capabilities in Microsoft Power Pages

Microsoft Power Pages has significantly expanded its capabilities with several AI-powered features now generally available, transforming how websites are created and managed. These innovations leverage Copilot to streamline processes via natural language processing and AI-driven automation, offering a more dynamic and engaging user experience.

Live features:

  • Create AI-Generated Webpages: Developers can create webpages by simply describing their purpose to Copilot. The AI generates HTML complete with relevant text and images, which can then be fine-tuned within the site’s main navigation using the WYSIWYG editor.
  • AI-Generated Colour Themes: Utilise Copilot to craft bespoke colour themes for your website, which can be further tailored in the Styling workspace to reflect your brand identity.
  • Create AI-Generated Forms: Add forms to your Power Pages website effortlessly by describing what you need to Copilot. The AI constructs the form based on your description, allowing you to review, modify, or restart with a new description if necessary.
  • Generate AI-Generated Text: Enhance your website by adding text through Copilot. Describe your needs, and the AI will produce text that can be reviewed and edited to ensure it perfectly meets your site’s requirements before being published.
  • Ask Copilot Questions: Improve your site-building process by directly asking Copilot questions within the Pages workspace. This feature provides instantaneous answers and solutions, facilitating smoother navigation and more efficient site development.

Copilot Expansion in Power Automate

Microsoft Power Automate has introduced innovative AI capabilities, revolutionising how workflows and processes are automated within organisations. With the integration of AI-driven Copilot, users can now engage in natural language conversations to create, refine, and optimise their automated workflows. This marks a significant advancement in making automation more accessible and efficient.

New features:

  • AI-Driven Flow Creation: Utilise Copilot to describe the automation you need, and let the AI handle the creation process. This feature simplifies the creation of both simple and complex workflows, accommodating everything from basic data handling to intricate, enterprise-wide processes.
  • Conversational Flow Editing: With Copilot in Power Automate, you can engage in open-ended, conversational interactions to make adjustments and improvements to your flows. This user-friendly interface requires no prior knowledge of Power Automate’s intricacies.
  • Automated Parameter Handling: When creating flows, Power Automate now automatically fills in required configuration parameters based on your descriptions. This minimises manual input and speeds up the automation process.

These enhancements to Microsoft Power Platform are designed to boost productivity and creativity for developers, ensuring that businesses can stay agile and innovative in a rapidly evolving digital landscape. With these updates, Microsoft continues to lead in providing tools that are not only powerful but also pivotal for businesses aiming to harness the full potential of digital transformation and AI integration.
